It's nice to have one superstar vintage Yankee player to collect that DOESN'T cost an arm and a leg to acquire.
See those stats? See his MVP season in 1963? Oh yeah, Elston was an MVP. He was also a great defensive catcher. He also integrated the Yankees. Oh, but he doesn't really have the stats to go into the Hall of Fame. Maybe because he had to play in the Negro Leagues for three years. And didn't make his MLB debut until he was 26. And was stuck behind Yogi once he hit the bigs. AND served two years in Korea.
OoooOOOOooooohhhh... but he don't have the StaaaAAAAaaaats....
BECAUSE THE HALL OF FAME IS ABOUT NOTHING BUT STATS
HE ALSO INVENTED THE BATTING DONUT FOR PETE'S SAKE
PUT HIM IN THA HALL OF FAME YOU LOUSY VOTING BASTARDS
(sorry the Pinkie Pie episode got me feeling all joyful and smiling this morning so I had to go on a crazed rant real quick to balance out the force)
