Something fishy

Sometimes weird objects make it onto baseball cards, but there's usually a reason. Player is riding a tractor? Probably used for field maintenance. Using a water gun? To cool off the fans. Holding a surfboard? To advertise for the photographer's brother.

But how does a fishing pole get on the field?

Maybe someone was using it to dangle a card for Ashby to autograph and it fell onto the field?

  1. I asked Tim Flannery about the surfboard once and he said that when he held it, none of the graphics were on it. That the photographer put them there later.
