Doug Ault: 1979 Topps

I've always liked this card of Doug Ault

It's an action photo and obviously he didn't hit the ball the way he wanted. Ault was one of the original Toronto Blue Jays
and hit two home runs in the Jays first ever game on April 7th, 1977.   By 1980 he was done with Major League Baseball
and eventually took his own life.  However, I've always been fond of this card.

Collection of Early 80s Cubs suckkage.  I put these together as a kid and forgot all about them until going through things at moms house.

I have an autographed Ernie Banks rookie card and an autographed baseball.
I am a rocket scientist. Please do not embarrass yourself by asking me to help configure your laptop.

I think Cal's little brother deserves some votes.  For his creativity with a felt pen on the knob of his bat

I wondered how he could hit standing like that.  I also wondered who names their kid Jesus.

When Topps was the only company licensed to put out player cards, there were a couple of years that Fleer put out sets of World Series cards with cartoon images - one card for each year.
