Hopefully, you know my love of stirrups and high cuffs. Pajama pants look like total crap. Dress like a ballplayer, not like a bum.
Now pitching - ball player. Now batting - slob.
While I have been searching and setting aside cards featuring properly attired players, one position has failed to appear - catcher. Now, if I was to determine the first position that would adopt longer pants, I would say the catcher. I'm sure the shin guards feel more comfortable without bloused pants. Yet, we all know a good 30 years ago, pajama pants were the exception and not the norm. Another known is that, up until he retired, Pudge Fisk always wore stirrups.

Now granted, I could Google image search and find a photo of Fisk with high cuffs while behind the plate. But those are not a baseball cards. I need to find a card that can put official scorer's position #2 in the high cuffs binder.

Less than an hour in and paydirt. Many many stacks to go, but the sorting can only get better, right?
My poor eyes.
