C.A.: 1960 Topps Clint Courtney

(Greetings. Today is National Sugar Cookie Day. I know "Sugar Cookie" is a thing, but putting "sugar" and "cookie" together always seemed redundant to me. I'd hate to eat a cookie without sugar. Anyway, it's time for Cardboard Appreciation. This is the 227th in a series):

Clint Courtney played for the Yankees, St. Louis Browns, Baltimore Orioles, White Sox, Washington Senators and Kansas City A's during his 11-year major league career.

He never played for the Dodgers.



  1. He died playing ping pong. What a way to go.

  2. I've been reading your blog for almost 4 years now. This might be the shortest post I've ever seen.


    1. Nah, just lack of time. But this card amused me too much not to post it.

  3. Garu Gulman agrees with you about sugar's the culmination of his Hierarchy Of Cookies routine: (some language NSFW).

  4. To me "Sugar Cookies" has always been a specific type of cookie. Very plain. Very Sugary. When I was a kid VERY Addictive. Sometime during my teen years the became less addictive and more blech. When I was a kid of 5 or 6 (1970/1) I would write on some of my cards mostly to identify them as mine and not my brother's. I don't know if I ever did the "he was traded" thing that the kid did on that card, maybe I did. Most of the time I would put my initial "K" big on the front in red ball point pen, or on the back in bigger black magic marker. Sometimes in blue pen. I have to dig up some of those that survived, scan them and blog about them sometime.

  5. Isn't a cookie without sugar a cracker?
