Al Kaline oddball

 Al Kaline was my favorite player.  I had an A2000 Al Kaline mitt and my first little league home run was with a 34 Inch Al Kaline bat.  My tribute to Al is this card from Tiger Stadium.




The following are some other oddball cards.  The first is from a Tigers schedule.


Stroh's, Blatz, Milwaukee's best, Buckeye and Heilman's were all Regional Beers.


Another of my favorite Minor League cards.


I never liked black licorice, but Red Twizzlers were the best.


Tony's daughter says he must hydrate.


And this card is one of the many colorful names that frequent baseball cards.
