Card fact: The '75 checklists come in two color combos: pink-yellow and tan-light blue.
What I thought about this card then: Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I can't even tell you whether I had it or not.
What I think about this card now: Thank God, a checklist. No research, no fact-checking, no memories. Yeah, it makes for a boring post, but I just spent 10 hours straight of non-stop thinking. I need the break.
Other stuff: What? You think I can expand upon a checklist card? OK, how about this: I firmly believe that a checklist needs to be a part of every set. And by that I mean, it must be a numbered card within the set that you must collect to complete the set. None of this "random checklist inserted in every third pack" that people end up using to insulate their attic. Make the checklist collectible again, damn it!
Back facts: One of the most interesting parts of the checklist to me -- and I use the word "interesting" in its very loosest definition -- is spotting the actual checklist card listed on the checklist. You can see in this case that it's down in the lower right, and that it's called a "Check List." Apparently, they couldn't decide whether it was one word or two.
Other blog stuff: Former Indians infielder Jack Brohamer (card #552) was born on this date 60 years ago.
