Al Kaline

Al Kaline
I know there are several Tiger fans here. I just saw on my Twitter feed that Al Kaline passed away. He had a nice long life, but what a bummer anyway.

Great hall of fame player. RIP

I hope it wasn't due to the Covid-19 virus. We lost a football legend New Orleans Saints PK Tom Dempsey yesterday to it.
Looking to trade for any Hall of Fame Topps base cards.

RE: Al Kaline
He was 85 and had recently suffered a stroke. What a class act. RIP Al.

Here is a gallery of my favorite Kaline cards:

RE: Al Kaline
His talent and impact on the game was often overlooked (i.e. Killebrew) because he didn't play in a "big market," but like Brooks and Harmon the game would NOT have been the same without him. Truly a sad day for baseball.
Not interested in GU or AUTO - base, base, base!!!

Baseball - Whit Merrifield, Wil Myers, Yadier Molina
Football - Brady Quinn, Landry Jones, Terry Bradshaw
Basketball - JJ Redick, Dr. J, Bill Walton

RE: Al Kaline
There's a good story about him in the Athletic that was written yesterday. The story about him and Jim Leyland having dinner a couple weeks ago nearly brought me to tears.

Classy classy guy and a very good baseball player. Am happy to say that I own his 63, 67, and 69 baseball cards.

RIP
