SIL Sunday: Satchmo

The great Satchel Paige. I think we all know the greatness of Satchel. If not, think of Jamie Moyer, and then multiply by 10. I did a quick search on this card; it's from a 2000 Fleer set called "Greats of the Game". I don't even remember buying this pack. For all I know, this may have been from a repack box of some sort I bought. I have just four cards from the set, but this is by far the best. The design alone wins it for me. A great head shot, simple team logo, gorgeous bronze/burgundy boarder, and no heavy gloss finish. Just the way the player and his team is listed is classy. A lot more newer releases of players from the past should look this beautiful.

 "Just take the ball and throw it where you want to. Throw strikes. Home plate don’t move."

If anyone sees cards from this set in a dime or quarter box, I will gladly pay you back.
