This is my favorite card of a player with native heritage, Chief Bender. He was a member of the Ojibwe tribe in Minnesota.

Don't forget Gene Locklear. He also had the Locklear Collection inserts in the 1993 and 1994 Ted Williams Card Co.issues.

The Oxford Indians were a barnstorming team that tried to capitalize on the success of the Nebraska Indians team. They were out of the small town of Oxford, Nebraska and they had a much harder time recruiting actual Native Americans to their team than the NI did. I was able to add a 4th different card to my collection a few weeks ago.

Default Tears on My Pillow

Nobody has brought this guy up.

Filomeno C. "Phil" Ortega. Pitcher for the Washington Senators in 1965-1968. 46 wins and 2 saves in 10 MLB seasons. Was of Yaqui Indian descent; his nickname in the clubhouse was "Tears on my Pillow". Debuted with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1960. His best season was 1967 for the Washington Senators as he posted a 10-10 record with a 3.03 ERA in 219.2 innings pitched. He finished up with the California Angels in 1969.

"There can't be more than six hundred Indian baseball fans in Southern California, but there are (far more) Mexicans. . . I could have scalped (Phil Ortega) the other day when he told Vin Scully on the pre-game show that he is an Indian." - Buzzie Bavasi, as quoted in the book Viva Baseball

Hi Doug

You had to see him pitch to appreciate how good he was. I was fortunate to see him pitch from 1947 - 1954.
Either on TV, or live at Yankee Stadium. His two No-Hitter's in 1951 were amazing performances.

Allie Reynolds deserves to be in the HOF.

Well Ted - When I am elected commissioner I might put you in charge of the HOF so you could make that happen.
