#97T Al Leiter

Leiter's got some nice flying gold chain action on the front of the card. On the back, there's an odd white spot in the orange border around his head shot. I wonder if that's a misprint on this particular card or if they were all like that.

The back of this card is one of the cheesiest in this set, and the oddest word is quite clearly "elan."

  1. While Leiter was a good pitcher, I think "second coming of Sandy Koufax" attributable to the always informed "some folks" was a little much. "Folks" sounds like a couple of senior citizens sitting on the porch in rocking chairs sipping lemonade. It should have been "some people" "some followers" or "some scouts" to have made this make a little more sense.

    If I'm criticizing somebody that wrote a baseball card back 20 years ago, I've got problems.
