“Today, the day before opening day, Joe Schultz said, 'Well, it's back to the old salt mine, boys.'”

A former SR colleague, a guy named Ken Sands, used to have a mint collection of Seattle Pilots cards. He showed them to me once. I wonder if he still has them.
I think he had a complete set of their second season, too. Of course, that wasn't spent in Seattle.
Anyway, feel free to ask me for my Tommy Harper story one day.
