Vintage Backgrounds: 1969 Topps Bill Melton

There are a few instances in this set of rookies with their photo taken in the clubhouse in front of their locker. In most instances you can't see much, but check out the equipment bag behind Bill Melton. Looks like it says Hawaii Islanders. 1968 was the one season that Hawaii served as the White Sox AAA team. Other notable '68 Hawaii Islanders included Bo Belinsky, Gene Freese, Larry Sherry, Walt "No Neck" Williams and team announcer Al Michaels.
