In going through my new cards, I noticed a couple of strange things.
One was the object on Gary Gaetti's hat. Looks like a pin with the state of Minnesota on it. Perhaps a commemorative pin for the Twins world championship the previous year? I assume he didn't wear it on the field.
Who is that on the billboard behind Don Aase? He is in a home uniform in spring training, which would mean the picture is very likely at Fort Lauderdale Stadium, which was shared by the Yankees and the Orioles. However, the player on the billboard isn't wearing a Yankee or Oriole jersey. It looks like a Mets jersey or maybe a Giants jersey from the early 1980s. Any ideas?
