Card #19 - Ernie Whitt
Ladies and gentleman, the greatest catcher in Toronto Blue Jays history...Ernie Whitt!
He never stuck at the big league level until his late 20's, but Whitt was the main man behind the plate for Toronto for the entire decade of the 80's. You know what else was solid for the Blue Jays during that decade? The block lettering on their jerseys. That's good stuff right there.
One of my good buddies in college went to high school with Ernie Whitt's daughter, so basically, me and Ernie are pretty tight.
Another treasure I discovered in the common's box at my local card shop.
I'm sorry, did you say "condition," or "conditioner," because Whitt's hair is on point! Look at those flowing locks!
How did Whitt only have one All-Star appearance in his career? He basically had the same season like nine times in a row. That's an outrage! That being said, I can't think of a better first Toronto card for the binder than this one.
