What I thought about this card then: We didn't follow baseball regularly in 1975. We collected cards. But as far as sitting down and watching games on television, or tracking boxscores in the newspaper, that was still a couple years down the line. But even in that hazy state, we still knew the Padres were not a good team. Must've been something about those stats on the back.
What I think about this card now: How the heck do you pronounce this guy's last name? I tried to look it up a month or so ago with no success. Now, I'm too lazy to try it again.
h) OK, that's enough now
i) None of the above
I am semi-obsessed with the fact that I don't know how to pronounce so many early 1970s players' names.
Other stuff: Friesleben (man, I really have to focus in order to spell his name correctly) is now a pro golfer. Also, I'm not the only one wondering how his name is pronounced.
Back facts: Another Halloween baby. That makes two so far. Am I going to have to start a count on that? ... This is another one of my favorite cartoons from my childhood. I actually thought Ebbets Field had a roof like a gingerbread house.
Oldie but goodie: Here is the original 1975 Friesleben that I touched with my own 9-year-old hands:
Other blog stuff: I scanned card No. 333 a couple days ago. That means I've scanned more than half the set.
