1985 Topps – Jack Buck
Jack was an institution in St. Louis. He did a lot of great things for baseball. I don’t know if his son Joe can be counted among those. I love how some of the older clubs had the announcers that became synonymous with the team. These guys were around for the majority of people’s lives. They were as much a part of the team as the ballpark.
This picture was another taken outside of the new Busch Stadium. This would have been released a long time ago, but I was going to have a day for announcers. The only thing that held that back was the fact that I needed a picture of Ernie Harwell and the Hawk. I ended up getting pictures of both, but never made cards of them for the set. They will find their way onto cards though.
