  1. Jimmy! You sure have a whole lotta cards, my friend! Unbelievable! Al Rosen was a fantastic 3rd baseman I recall, for the “Tribe.” He was in the special category of Brooks Robinson and a few others that had an arm like a slingshot and could toss most runners out at 1st and was also I believe a terrific hitter. We are goin back to the good ‘ole days here now! Wish we had it to do all over again but we cannot stop Fr “Time!” Thanks! These are fantastic! PG 3/16/15
