Default Pitchers At The Bat?

I got to thinking yesterday. I could not think of a single baseball card that showed a pitcher batting. Until the DH came around they batted just as often as any other position.

Can anyone show examples I've missed?

Am vaguely remembering the pic on the back of an Upper Deck c1989-1991 showing this.

I remember this one:

Golden country your face is so red

Well your blacks are dyin' but your back is still turned

You better stop your hidin or your country will burn.

Default Pitchers at Bat

Name the player to appear in at least 500 games who has the highest batting average of all-time.

I am impressed anyone remembered these. Thought I knew the 59 set inside and out and did not remember that Don Gross.

I think that he means 500 games as a pitcher. Otherwise, Ty Cobb pitched 3 games and Lefty O'Doul pitched 34.
