Chet Lemon on baseball cards

Chet Lemon played sixteen seasons in the major leagues, making three All-Star teams and winning a World Series in 1984. He led the American League in HPB four times and in doubles in 1979. Now the coach of Chet Lemon's Juice, a youth baseball team, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

- Do you have any stories about cards of yourself or of other players?
- I enjoy looking at the old White Sox uniforms from the mid 70's. I'd have to say we had the most unique uniforms of the time. - Do you have a favorite card of yourself or of another player?
- Not a real big fan of Baseball cards but I do understand the importance and value to the fans.
- Do you collect baseball cards?
- As a former baseball player the collections for each season are given to us at no cost.



  1. I definitely have to agree with him about those old White Sox uniforms!
