1970 Kellogg's Baseball Card Backs #37 - #39

Here are three more Kellogg's baseball card backs.

#39 Bert Campaneris -

I new him as a base stealer, but he did some other amazing things.  How about three triples in one game - tying a record.  He hit a homer on the first pitch he saw in the majors.  He also hit another homer in that game, something done by only five players in MLB history.   He wasn't even a home run hitter - he only hit 79 in 19 years.

Not on the card -  I was surprised to find out that he was the second player with a given first name of Dagoberto.  Bert Cueto, also from Cuba, had the same birth name.

#38 -

Another mention of leading the league in wild pitches.  Don't they know that this isn't a good thing?  He just had two good seasons, why not write more about that?

#37 Billy Williams -

I guess the Cubs liked swimming.  He is a frequent member of the NL all-star team.

Not on the card - I caught multiple balls that he hit into the bleachers at Wrigley Field.  Unfortunately, they all came when he as hitting fungos during outfield practice.
