Card fact: It's not really a card fact, or even a player fact. It's more of a personal family anecdote. Ken Singleton is the favorite player of my youngest brother.
What I thought about this card then: I didn't see. It was a long time before I knew that Ken Singleton played for any team other than the Orioles.
What I think about this card now: What is Singleton looking at? Is someone threatening to jump from the top deck?
Other than that, the border goes very well with the Expos uniform.
Other stuff: Ken Singleton was a very consistent, durable player his entire career. He had a heck of a season in 1979, finishing second in the American League MVP voting to his former teammate, Don Baylor. I have a feeling Singleton's '79 season played a part in my brother picking him as his favorite player as my brother would have been 9 that year.
Singleton went into broadcasting after his career was over and I vividly remember he and Duke Snider calling games for the Montreal Expos (we could get the Montreal channel in Buffalo). He has been a Yankees broadcaster for a long time. He is pretty much the voice of reason in the insane asylum called YES, which broadcasts most Yankees games. Personally, I don't know how he stands it.
Back facts: I need to start counting the cartoon references to the Dodgers. There's been several of them. ... Also, I like the random capitalization of "assists" in the write-up.
Other blog stuff: I'll go with a birthday since I just alluded to annoying YES broadcasters. Paul O'Neill was born on this date in 1963.
