Three Blind Giants
Greg Minton #348, I have nothing personal against him but Greg has a cross eyed look and you can really see it on his Topps 1978 card. All three cards inlcuding Doyle Alexander #96 and Tom Griffin #474, all have the same look and feel to them. I want to say all were taken by the same photographer, on the same day, at Wrigley Field. Griffin is the one I am not sure of. Doyle Alexander was once traded for Frank Robinson and later in his career for a very young John Smoltz. Frank Robinson was involved in one of the most lopsided trades in baseball history with Milt Pappas. Back Facts: Doyle also pitched the division clinching series win for the O's in 1973.
