  1. He’s smiling but knowing how much he hated his time with the south-siders, that card makes me sad. Also, it’s his last card. 😦

  2. It’s very weird seeing Santo in a White Sox uniform. It’s as weird as seeing Billy Williams in an A’s uniform in his 1975 Topps cards. WTF were the Cubs thinking in 1974?
