The Chicken #531

Photo Front: Possibly that most unique baseball card ever made up to 1982. Outside of Kurt Bevaqua 1976 Topps blowing bubble gum winning card,
I can't think of a more unusual card in the modern era from 1952 to 1982. The only thing I do not like about the photo is that it is Horizontal. The Chicken is
laying on his side with a bat, ball and glove just in front of the stands
Back Stats: The Chicken would autograph the card if you sent it to the Donruss Co. (I wonder how many exist - also is this the first big hit Autograph card
in Sports card history - predating the 1991 UD Reggie Jacksons?). It is also of not the - The Chicken Co. was copyrighted.
