1985 Topps – Ted Kluszewski
The Big Klu makes the set. This is the last of the statues from Crosley Terrace that made the set in the ‘short print’ capacity. I had a card with Frank Robinson on it, but it was a picture of the actual man that I had taken on the same day.
Yet again I tried to get the signage of the game in the background of the statue. I probably was more worried about that than getting a good shot of Ted. Growing up I knew of Ted as a member of the Sox team that went to the World Series in 1959. Later on I learned more about him, but he still will always be known to me as the guy with no sleeves.
