  1. With the great SI cover of Wes Parker, it made me take a quick look at both Wes' entry on Wikipedia and Baseball-Reference.com. Interesting note on Wikipedia: "On August 21, 2007, Parker was named to the Major League Baseball All-time Gold Glove Team, and is the only member of the team who is not in the Baseball Hall of Fame."

    Perhaps you could create a Super Vets card for Wes Parker using the 1973 format?

  3. It's mind-blowing that Mike Marshall won the Cy Young Award as a reliever in 1974 and only had 21 saves!
