Baseball Card Trivia

Don Rudolph pitched for the Chicago White Sox. On the back of his 1959 baseball card (in the extended entry), besides his stats they note that Don's wife is a professional dancer. Her name was Pat Wiggin, and professional dancer was a delicate way of saying 'stripper'.

I'm trying to track down a picture of her, but there's a bit of a flame war going on in the vintage erotica newsgroup, hence requests for help are getting lost in the mayhem. I remain hopeful.

Interesting that you mention trading cards as I read an article yesterday (17th) on ESPN's website that certain basketball cards are being sold, retail, for 500.00! FIVE HUNDRED! for a pack of four! Anyway, they have 'special' cards - editions of 100. One gent got a card w/ Kobes' and Lebrons' pic + a patch from thier actual jersey (on the same card) that he already sold on EBay for 25K....Good Luck
