1970 Kellogg's Baseball Card Backs #16 - 18

So I skipped #19 - 27 for now since I haven't picked those up in a long time and I'd have to get them from storage or from another website.  I'll look at the others and get back to those nine later.

#18 - Rick Reichardt

Great to see a college graduate who also got a big bonus.  Two homers in an inning is great, but the stats show him hitting no homers in 1964.  It turns out that the card is incorrect.  He accomplished that in 1966.  Was it ever corrected?  I will have to check that one out.

#17 - Bill Singer

His no-hitter was in the minors.  I like his diverse hobbies - swimming, dancing and water skiing.

#16 - Carlos May

This is a beautiful car.  Well-loved.   Lee May of the Reds is his brother.

IT'S A FACT - Only six times in MLB history did a first basemen not record a putout in a game.  I'm not going to check to find more instances of that.  Big strikeout games would be easy to check.
