I'm not sure why I like Rusty Staub. He always killed the Cubs. He had more hits, RBI's and total bases against us than any other team in his long career. Maybe it's his name, RUSTY STAUB. I didn't even know what his given name was until I looked it up. It's not even on the back of this card. Of course he has one of the great nicknames of all time, "Le Grand Orange". Rusty never looked all that threatening to me on the diamond and yet he got the job done. Maybe that's another reason I like him.
I love the cartoon here. Who knew they gave out such an award!
