Recently completed a great trade with SpastikMooss, curator of the Great Sports Name Hall of Fame. I sent him some 1997 Circas for his collection, and he sent me back some great Line Drive brand baseball cards.

I love the goofy minor league logos, like this one for the Arkansas Travelers - "A-Travs, The Greatest Show on Dirt."

And how about these two players, whose hats seem to imply that they play for Great Britain? Looks like the photographer had a one-track mind.

If you are curious about the title, it refers to Chip Caray's blown announcing call in the one-game Detroit-Minnesota playoff, where he called a fly ball out a base hit. MLB had the guts to replace the umpires who did such a bad job in the playoffs. Hopefully they'll do the same with the announcers.
