St. Louis Cardinals Red Schoendienst

I'm certainly no stranger to Red Schoendienst, but I've never even met the guy. You see, he's the guy whose baseball cards I always seemed to get--if I opened up a new pack, there was Red right on top, still managing the St. Louis Cardinals.

Once I even had a dream, maybe closer to a nightmare, that he was on every card of the last pack on earth. So you see, I'm real comfortable with Red, though his name should be Orange; after all, his hair is orange, not red . . .

All kidding aside, it gratifies me to learn, via the Baseball Reference, that the old Hall of Famer is still alive and kickin' at 92! I hope I see you around sometime, old buddy.

The card is a 1962 Topps. I chose it because it's one of Red's I never owned.
