These Were Some Great White Sox Uniforms


How does Jorge Orta end up being my 500th post?  I like numbers and Orta ended up his career with 500 Walks.  


I've got a lot of this 1976 Kellogg's card.  That is a great White Sox uniform.

Orta played for 15 years, eight with the White Sox.  He hit 130 homers, which is about 100 more than I would have guessed.

We went to a lot of games at this time since my sisters got straight A's in school and I would usually get perfect attendance.  Doing either of those things in Chicago Public Schools got you a nice reward - four White Sox tickets.  I guess the Cubs must have had a plan with snobby, private schools because we never got Cub tickets.

Orta got into the 1975 Kellogg's set as well.  He hit over .300 in both 1974 and 1975.  That helped the two-time all-star get into these sets.
