Card #39 - Lou Whitaker
I LOVE this card. Not only does Whitaker look like a complete bad-@$$...he signed his name "Sweet Lou"! Are you kidding me!?!? That's awesome.
I had the fortune of seeing Whitaker play in Tigers Stadium a couple of times near the end of his career. I'm a better person for it.
You know I live in Texas, because if I was still back in Michigan there's no way this beauty would have been trapped in a common's box at my local shop. This would be in the glass case.
The card is in wonderful condition though it is off-center.
This is one of my favorites in the set. That's why it's included in the blog background.
On a side note, sorry for the sporadic posts lately. I'm coaching my daughter's soccer team right now and that's been dominating my free time...
