  1. He was also the only player in baseball card history to have his primary position be listed as pinch runner. On a side note, this is one of the few cards I am in need of for my 2nd 1975 set, so if you happen to come across another, please let me know. One of my all-time favorite cards too btw!

  2. good luck on your continued quest too Brian!

  3. There’s a great little fiction piece based off this card. Definitely worth the read. http://www.hobartpulp.com/web_features/the-loneliness-of-the-designated-pinch-runner
