Kellogg's Baseball Cards will be the primary emphasis of this blog. I will also talk about 3-D football, basketball and hockey cards and other related cards. Kelloggs (or Kellogs) cards have been an interest of mine since my days munching on Frosted Flakes.

1991 Kellogg's Leyendas Card Backs - Part 6
Back for another 1991 Kellogg's Leyendas baseball card back. I spent more time trying to decide when to go to the National this year, but I haven't figured that out yet. I am likely only going for one day so that rules out Wednesday since it isn't enough time. Sunday doesn't work this year either.
Back to Rico Carty. He
I don't remember most of his career with the Braves. During the 1970s he seemed like a guy who I could never keep track of his current team. Here is what I found - 1963 - 72 Braves, 1973 - Cubs, Rangers, A's, 1974 - 77 Indians, 1978 - A's, Blue Jays, 1979 Blue Jays. So, my memories were somewhat correct. Back to the card back now.
He hit .300 in eight of his 15 seasons.
Not on the card - his career average was .299. He needed two more hits in all of those ABs to have a .300 career average. He won a batting title in 1970 and started on the All-Star team.
Not on the card - he was an all-star starter without even being on the ballot. Write-in votes got him the spot.
He missed the 1968 due to tuberculosis. He also had seven shoulder separations.
Not on the card - his only post-season appearances were in 1969 against the Mets. He was 3-for-10 with three walks in three games.
