Johngy is a big fan of relatively obscure White Sox player Mike Squires, so I made a bunch of customs for Mr. Squires, hoping to create a blip on Johngy's radar.
Despite not having the typical power associated with a first baseman, Squires was a valuable member of the White Sox during their Tony La Russa era in the late 70s and early 80s. He won a Golden Glove in 1981.
On May 4, 1980, Squires became the first left-handed-throwing catcher in Major League Baseball since Dale Long in 1958 when he was shifted from first base in the ninth inning of an 11–1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. And he later became the first left-handed-throwing third baseman in at least 50 years on August 23, 1983 when he entered the game for Vance Law in the bottom of the eighth inning in a 10–2 loss to the Royals. Chicago would go on to win the AL West that year.
Midriff alert! Something you don't see on cards often.
Nod to teammate Ralph Garr?
Guy on deck has an impressive bubble going. Or is that a fouled off baseball?
Squires was a Toronto Blue Jays coach from 1989 to 1991. Later went on to be a scout for the Reds.
What do you think, Johngy?!? Please comment below!
