Nice cards. We all know who Ryan is but Kisinger who he?
Heres a little history on the guy for you
Charles Samuel "Rube" Kisinger (December 13, 1876 - July 17, 1941) was a right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball. Born in Adrian, Michigan, Kisinger played baseball at his hometown Adrian College before signing with the Detroit Tigers. He debuted with the Tigers at the end of the 1902 season on September 10, 1902. As a 25-year-old rookie, Kisinger played in five games (all complete games) and had a record of 2-3 with an ERA of 3.12 (Adjusted ERA+ of 120). In 1903, he appeared in 16 games (including 14 complete games) and had a record of 7-9 with an ERA of 2.96 in 118-2/3 innings pitched. Kisinger played in his last major league game on September 24, 1903. In October 1903, Kisinger was traded by the Tigers with other players to the Buffalo Bisons of the Eastern League for Cy Ferry and Matty McIntyre. According to one history of the Bisons, Kissinger led the Bisons to their first pennant in 1904, described by the author as "a part-time surveyor and coin collector who managed to win 24 games in the betweens." [1] Kisinger also made his only appearance on a baseball card (a T206 baseball card) while playing for Buffalo. He died at age 64 in a train accident in Huron, Ohio while acting as a railroad engineer

Great start to your vintage pc. You can never go wrong with Nolan Ryan and any T-206 is a good T-206

I live in Adrian, where Rube was born and this is the first I learned of him. Where did you find all of this information? This is great stuff.
