The Chicken

Here is one of the weirder base cards of all time - a 1982 Donruss card of "The Chicken," mascot of the San Diego Padres.

Ten chicken jokes on card - that has to be a record! I didn't realize he was a switch hitter.

I had never heard of "The Baseball Bunch" - it was a kids show that ran in the early 1980s. Here is an article about it on Wikipedia. When on wikipedia I looked up The Chicken (or The San Diego Chicken) and found that he is one of no less than 34 members of the wikipedia category, Fictional Chickens. Wow.

  1. I love when people write jokes like "this." it makes it all that much cheesier.
