#386 - Checklist, 265-396
Card fact: This is the first pink-yellow bordered card in 33 cards. Once the overall leader, it is now trailing badly behind orange-brown.
What I thought about this card then: Beats me.
What I think about this card now: It's funny how these checklist cards come along at the best times. I just had a whirlwind 36 hours. I certainly could use a quick-and-easy post.
Other stuff: The name of Dick Sharon is misspelled as "Sahron" at card No. 293.
Back facts: Another sneak-peak at the players coming up in cards numbered 387-396, including my most favorite player of all-time (no it's not Don DeMola).
Other blog stuff: A lot of big trades have happened on this date in history. Among them:
1957: White Sox send Minnie Minoso and Fred Hatfield to the Indians for Early Wynn and Al Smith.
1958: Dodgers trade Gino Cimoli to Cardinals for Wally Moon.
