#18 - Ray Fosse
His signing bonus included tuition at Southern Illinois University. He has played catcher since his Little League days in Marion, Illlinois.
He resisted signing with Bear Bryant and Alabama for football.
Not on the card - Fosse, the pride of Marion, Illinois, had his career derailed by Pete Rose's hard slide in the 1970 All-Star Game. I didn't know that Fosse was from Marion until reading the back of this card today. Marion is known for its prison. Fosse fans in the area probably found it fitting that one of Marion's most well-known inmates was (did you guess this?) Pete Rose.
Not on the card - He was traded to Oakland on March 24, 1973. I guess there never was an update to this card but I will check.
#17 - Jim Palmer
#16 - Nolan Ryan
