Card fact: Ron Santo's final card during his playing career.
What I thought about this card then: I am kicking myself because I didn't scan the mini card that I picked up when I was 9 years old. It is probably the most miscut card I have in my collection. It is a sight to see because Santo's entire image is in the card, yet it is still extremely miscut. I'll have to post it later because my scanner isn't cooperating right now.
What I think about this card now: Is this the most painful card for a Cub fan to view? I mean, I would imagine it's something like this card. But that card depicted something that never happened. Santo as a White Sox happened.
Other stuff: I'm not from Chicago and I never saw Santo play, so take this for what it's worth: I think he should be in the Hall of Fame.
Back facts: I think it's great that the cartoon question is about Ken "Hawk" Harrelson. Two of Chicago's most famous baseball announcers -- Santo and Harrelson -- on one baseball card!
Other blog stuff: Unless someone stops me, I'm calling this color combo the "Oscar Mayer Weiner" design after the hot dog company's famed orange-and-yellow packaging and corresponding OMW mobile.
It's a wonder any cards end up in our collections
