The Infinite Baseball Card Set: Mysterious Mitchell: His Name Says It All

The man stated that he was a professional pitcher and wanted to play for the Seals. It was quickly evident that this was not going to be an ordinary contract negotiation. When pressed on his credentials, the man stated that his name and previous occupation wasn’t anyone’s business. As long as he made good on the mound he need not reveal anything about himself…..The new-comer pitched 5 innings before leaving the game with a 6-2 lead and the victory. Six days later he faced the Tigers again and this time went the full nine, earning another win. It was after this second victory that people began to ask the question:

Who the heck was this guy?

The author is an artist who makes baseball cards of Negro Leaguers, obscure players and infamous players. Worth a look if you are unfamiliar with his work.
