12 Days of Christmas, Baseball Card Style

The Twelve Days of Christmas are the twelve days between Christmas and Epiphany. Of course you're familiar with the song. Here is my attempt at matching up the gifts from the twelve days of Christmas song with baseball cards

12 Drummers Drumming: Fleer 1982 Keith Drumright

11 Pipers Piping: Fritsch Negro League Stars Piper Davis

10 Lords Leaping: T206 Harry Lord

9 Ladies Dancing:
1994 Ted Williams Faye Dancer

8 Maids Milking: Upper Deck MInute Maid Park

7 Swans Swimming

6 Geese Laying:
Score 1988 Goose Gossage

5 Golden Rings: Topps 1963 Jim Golden

4 Calling Birds:
Donruss 1982 Doug Bird

3 French Hens:

2 Turtle Doves: Bowman 2007 Dennis Dove

Partridge in a Pear Tree: Well, this one had me stumped. There has been no major leaguer with the last name of Partridge, Pear, or Tree. The closest I could come was a player named Frank Pears, who pitched in one game for the Cardinals (actually they were called the Browns then) in 1893. But since he played so long ago, there are no cards of him. So I had to go to plan B, and use a different type of trading card

  1. Very good. I got a chuckle out of the final one. Good call on it though.
