Something is odd about this 2007 Frank Catalanotto baseball card from Topps; it came out in Series 1--but Mr. Catalanotto hadn't played for the Rangers since 2002, his first affiliation with the team. Perhaps this was printed in a time/space continuum that is reserved exclusively for baseball cards.
We didn't notice until it officially became the First Card Ever Returned to Lucy Through the Mail
and then we learned a little bit more about Mr. C.
Fun Frank Facts: He is from New York (Smithtown). That's a common collecting category, right? Players born in a certain place.
His nickname is Little Cat.
Don Taylor, Canadian sportscaster, reportedly sings Mr. Catalanotto's name
followed by a two-word description of what he just accomplished, to the tune of 'Shave and a Haircut.' It would go like this: "Frank Catalanotto...home run!"
So, are there any players you don't actively collect...but it makes you happy if you get one of their baseball cards?
