Oldest living player

Post by sabrjay on Thu Apr 25, 2013 4:27 pm

Today is the birthday of the oldest living major leaguer, Connie Marrero. I'm feeling lazy, so can someone else tell us if he is on any cards?

Proud owner of his 53T (#13):



Interesting how easy it is to look at that image and not conclude that it's anything other than a white man.

cool thread Jay.

We are very lucky to have Mark as a member here. I learn something every time I get the chance to speak with him or read something he has posted.

I was lucky enough to have met Mark early in my collecting career back in 1983. He taught me more about cards and memorabilia than anyone else but I also had some other good teachers like Dick Dobbins and John Spalding. Hopefully he will write all this information down and pass it along some day.
