Perhaps an Allen & Ginter subset called "Mountebanks, Minstrels, and Maestros" would do the trick. Jazz Pianist Dave Frishberg’s first published song was "Peel Me a Grape" (1962), but that isn't what makes him highly relevant to baseball cardophiles. The road to relevance comes through Van Lingle Mungo, a strikeout artist (born in 1911), who pitched for the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants (yay!) from 1931 to 1945. Mungo averaged 16 wins from 1932 to 1936 pitching for the Dodgers.
Mr. Frishberg (b. 1933), at the age of 36 turned to his childhood interest of baseball, bought a copy of the MacMillan Baseball Encyclopedia,paged through it, and came across the name Mungo. John Mungo or Biff Mungo wouldn't have made him bat an eyelash. But Van Lingle Mungo! So in 1969 he composed a song of the names of baseball players. The result was a hit single. Here is singer Sue Raney crooning it so you'll know the tune:
Vann Lingle Muuuungo
Howard Pollet and Early Wynn
Vannn Linnngle Munnngo
Big Johnny Mize and
Harry Brecheen and Lou Boudreau
Are you jazzed?
And here's aConversation with Dave Frishberg.
