(Military Service)

George Altman's card shows that he didn't play ball in 1957.  Instead the card shows (Military Service).  You don't see that on cards any more.

But the Cubs have a pitcher named Danny Lewis in class A South Bend and he spent four years in the Air Force.  You can read his story here.

Happy Memorial Day and thank you to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

  1. It took me a few decades to truly appreciate how cool it is to see "military service" on the back of trading cards. This would be a very cool PC to start.
