    +1! [MENTION=2122]robertwolf1[/MENTION] congrats on the addition, pretty cool item right there!
    Wasn't Veeck also the guy who had a...um... Believe the approved current term is little person on his team for a short time so he could get a base runner because the guy had almost no strike zone and would routinely walk??

    Bring me your Bickford, Ryan McMahon, Senzatela and Peter Lambert cards
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    It was 1/8th. That was actually Bill DeWitt Jr's (the current majority owner of the Cardinals) jersey and it had number 6 on it. Veeck asked to borrow it and changed the number. The jersey is in the Cardinals Hall of Fame now.

    I read this book when I was a kid and your post inspired me to pick up a copy. I found an autographed copy on eBay where they misspelled his name in the title. I got it for the minimum bid of $9.99, so thanks for the inspiration.
