Thanks! I always thought that was a neat looking card.

First thing I thought of when I saw his name. Six homers in three games, so put six balls on the bat.
Honestly, he put up much bigger numbers than I realized.

He was a reliever, mostly with the Milwaukee Braves in the early 60s. He had been inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame.
“His passion and pride for Canadiana were second to none. Everybody loved Ron Piché! As far as being a supporter of what we do here, it was never more evident than when he suffered a terrible automobile accident on his way to St. Marys two years ago to attend the induction ceremony, and when he was being removed from his vehicle by the emergency crew using the jaws of life, he asked them to please not damage the Hall of Fame blazer that he was wearing. He will be dearly missed but will always serve as an inspiration to all of us.”
Tony Malinosky was the oldest living player at 101. He died this past Tuesday. He briefly played for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1937.

So I wonder who NOW becomes the oldest living ex-Major Leaguer?
