  • Evergreen Park Teacher Is the Ultimate Sox Fan.

    I found this article on the Patch. A really die hard and dedicated Sox fan has a collection for the ages.
    Teacher Has A Photo Of Nearly Every White Sox Player... Ever - Evergreen Park, IL - The collection owned by Jim Pender, a substitute teacher at Evergreen Park Community High School, includes nearly 1,800 players since 1901.

    The article above got me thinking, I ran across this message board/website and from what I can garner from it, is the objective is to get a picture of every person whoever played MLB, however briefly it was. There are tons of interesting pics up on this board.

    Perhaps one of Mr. Pender’s “missing 6” are on this site?

      I just wish I had saved all my Baseball Cards from the 50s. All I have are some of Nellie's.
      Now coming up to bat for the White Sox is the Mighty Mite, Nelson Fox.

        We all wish that. I have no idea what happened to my shoe boxes full.

          They’ve all gone to baseball card heaven. I do know I chewed a few up on some bicycle spokes along the way that were duplicates. Damn gum tasted like a month old roll of Necco’s.

            Never chewed the Topps, hard as steel. Though owned by Topps I always bought Bazooka Bubble Gum with the Bazooka Joe comics, always had a wad in my mouth when in Little League at Thillens Stadium or playing Clincher 12" Softball in our sandlot on north Damen Ave.

              Never used baseball cards in my bike spokes. The cheap cardboard didn't hold up well enough. I needed the good plastic-coated playing cards for that, after the deck became useless because there was a card damaged or missing.

              A lot of my stuff that was left in the attic or bedroom closet when I went into the Army was gone when I got home. My younger brothers swore no knowledge of where it went. I still suspect clandestine sales and trades. 😉

                Never left the house without a wad in my yap. I helped make the guy who owned the corner store a millionaire, chucking change across the penny candy counter.

                  Like youze guys my collection vanished when I enlisted in Uncle Sams Canoe Club. Funny how when we moved out our rooms got Policed down to the last dust bunny, but when Sis moved away her stuff was kept like a museum to return to at any time.

                    Good for him. There's no way I could replicate his feat, in part because there are certain ex-players I never want to have to see or hear about again.

                      I agree including a few with the Sox and a bunch with the Flubs.
