Old School Heritage and New School Ponies - Part 8: Catchers


Shoulda had Elston catch you, Pinkie...

Earl Battey and Elston Howard are featured in this '63 Combo card. With no inset circle the combos are the plainest cards in the set, but there's plenty of room for the photo. This pic might have been taken at the first 1962 All-Star game in Washington since Earl and Elston are both in the home pinstripes. I'm worn out and am getting a headache and just wanna go to bed so I'll just linky SABR's biographies on Elston and Earl here instead of summarizing them up.
