I dig the artwork on this one.  No one would have any problem  recognizing Johnny Bench (one of my all time favorite players, right behind Carlton Fisk and Frank Thomas) and Brooks Robinson, but Billy Williams looks a little more like Ron Santo.

Babe Ruth signs the manuscript copy of his autobiography, which he donated to Yale.  Ruth passed away shortly afterwards from cancer.

I never thought I’d say this, but George Bush gets it! Check out the stirrups, sanitaries and pinstripes.
