#39T Calvin Schiraldi
OK, folks. I've you've been reading my blogs, you know that I love seeing interesting things in the backgrounds of card photo.
I give you the MOTHER OF ALL CARD BACKGROUNDS.
Behind Schiraldi, we have Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg playing second base. This is the third card I know of that features Sandberg in the background. (The others are here and here although I'm sure there must be more such cards.)
As if that's not enough, behind Sandberg is Andre Dawson (very likely future HOFer)!! That's two fantastic Cubs on a card behind one big dud.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the REAL reason the Sox lost game 6 in '86. I would have also accepted Bob Stanley.ReplyDelete
Plus, not only do you have Sandberg and Dawson in the background, you also have the green of the ivy, the basket, the bleacher bums (somebody alert Lee Elia!) and just a glorious sunny day. A marvelous background every way you look at it. And it's wasted on Calvin Schiraldi.ReplyDelete
