Mark, there cards issued 100-120 years ago that show pitchers batting. WaJo was a good hitting pitcher, and he was often used as a pinch hitter. HOFer and Senators owner and GM had a fine pitching career in the late 19th Century. L/H pitcher George Mogridge was instrumental in the Senators only World Series win, in 1924.

A lot more recent than any of the other cards too bad it was not on the front of the card.

Popped into my head as soon as the question was read - probably because i'm a long-time Tribe fan.
