Card #33 - Jerry Morales

The Card
Sweet fancy Moses...can you believe the Cubs actually wore these uniforms out in public!?!  Morales, with his steely gaze, superior mustache, dirty leg, and legit wristband, should look downright intimidating in this card, but that all gets lost in an ocular assault of light blue and piping.  Those poor folks at Shea Stadium actually paid money to look at this mess!

The Story
This was another lost cardboard soul in my local card shop commons box.

The Price
$0.15

The Condition
Superior...minus the color scheme.

The Verdict
Morales was an All-Star for the Cubs in the 70's who came back to Chicago in 1981 to finish out his career.  He deserved better than this road uniform!
