Didn't Casey once doff his cap to the crowd as he stepped into the batter's box and reveal a sparrow perched on this crown? And people ask me why I prefer prewar.

"What do you think, I was born at 60?", Casey told him. Wonder if Mick ever saw his T210.



1923 NY Giants [am not 100% positive but I believe Casey is in second row second from left]

1951 Hollywood Stars scorecard

Default Tuesday nite TRIVIA.....Casey Stengel.....plus, show us some of Casey's cards

Not often seen1914 Casey Stengel collectible, this B18 flannel may be one of the earliest issues of Casey Stengel in a Major League uniform.

I don't think he is featured in the 1914 Cracker Jack set.

B18 flannels were issued wrapped around Cigarette packs. Shown here is the Egyptienne brand which the B18's were associated with.
