1970 Kellogg's Baseball Card Backs #28 - #30

Here are three more card backs.  I read them for the first time when I do the post so I have no idea what to expect.

#30 Tim Cullen

It isn't common to see a guy go from one team (Washington) then to Chicago and back to the first team.  Remember, this is before free agency.

IT'S A FACT - both of Cullen's teams were in that game.  Each team had three guys caught stealing and the White Sox had one picked off.  Cullen pinch hit and got a walk.  Hansen was 3-for-8 with 2 RBIs.

Not on the card - in both trades (Feb. 1968 and Aug. 1968) Ron Hansen was part of the deal for Cullen.

#29 Willie Stargell

He's listed as 210 pounds and goes with 188.  

Another listing that mentions bad records - most consecutive strikeouts in two games.  

Not on the card - he ended up playing almost 40% of his career games at first base.

#28 Mateo Alou

He's M. Alou on the front because his brothers are in the majors.  That's better than being Re. Jackson or Ro. Jackson in a later set.  He's more commonly known as Matty.

Hobby - skin diving.  Is that big in his birthplace, the Dominican Republic?

Not on the card - Matty played 1,667 games while Felipe was in  2,082 and Jesus got his way into 1,380 games. That's 5,129 games.  That doesn't even could son/nephew Moises who played in 1,942 games.  Can any brothers top that amount?
