ON-CARD ALL-STAR: 1970 SAL BANDO

Here's a fun card to "fix", the 1970 Sal Bando, showing the fact that he was the American League starting third baseman in the 1969 All-Star game:


It's amazing to think that he beat out perennial All-Star and legend Brooks Robinson, but when you look at the season Bando put in that year, it was much deserved!
Bando had what turned out to be the best year of his 16-year career in 1969, hitting 31 homer while driving in 113 runs, scoring 106 and collecting 171 hits, all career-bests, while making his 1st All-Star team and finishing 16th in the MVP race.
A huge cog in the machine that would eventually be the three-peat World Champion A's teams of the mid-70's, he would end up making four All-Star teams over his career, while placing top-4 in MVP votes three times with a high of second place in 1971 when teammate Vida Blue took home the honors.
Bando put together a very solid 16-year career that saw him take home three championships, participate in four all-star games, and finish in the top-10 in MVP voting three times.
His five 20-homer and two 100+ RBI seasons were a nice compliment to Reggie's offensive exploits, and with Joe Rudi, Gene Tenace and Bert Campaneris thrown in you can see why those A's teams were so strong.
Then again, with starting pitching like Vida Blue, Catfish Hunter, Ken Holtzman, Rollie Fingers et al, yeah, they were going to kick-ass no matter what…

  1. Nice update. Yes. Beating out Brooks Robinson for the starting nod was no small feat!

    1. Hello everyone I want to let the whole world know how Dr Great has restored my broken relationship with Wayne. We have been together for 3 years and he told me that he doesn’t love me like he used to. Things have not been good for about 4 months and he ended this about 2 weeks ago. I was miserable and just don’t want to go on anymore. I did text him right after this but he didn’t even respond to me. One day I was searching for a way to get him back on the Internet when I saw a post of a lady testifying of how a love spell caster called Dr Great helped her to get back her Ex, I was so desperate to get mine back so I messaged him and explained my situation to him and he instructed me to do somethings which I did and 24 hours later my boyfriend Wayne came back kneeling and begging for my forgiveness and I forgive him and our relationship was back to normal again, if your Ex broke up with you or you have any problem then you problem has come to an end because Dr Great can solve all marriage and relationship problems. If you need his urgent help email him at

  5. Hello everyone i know there is someone somewhere reading this, I want to share a great work of a spell caster called Dr Akhigbe, my husband and i had a fight which led to our divorce but when he left me a part of me left with him, and i was to sad and cried all day and night i was searching something online when i saw people testifying about his great work and i just decided to give him a try. I did everything he told me to do and he assured me that after 24 hours my husband will come back to me, the next morning to my greatest surprise a car stopped outside my house and it was my husband. I'm so happy he came back to me after the spell work of Dr Akhigbe. He can also help you out too,
