I don't know if there was any intended humor with the pink elephant on the back there, but I've been in the presence of a few pink elephants in my day, and the image of Elmer carrying one in the pennant race struck me as pretty funny. Well, after I had regained my senses from having first recoiled in horror and suspecting that I had come unglued again, but that's a completely different can of beans.
Elmer also has this 2007 Topps Distinguished Service Cards (no idea from what set, etc.), which is also courtesy of Daddy D.
The crazy thing is that, unless that back is just poorly worded, Elmer began WWII fighting with Allied Forces in Eastern Europe, which I take to mean Czech insurgents or something. Pretty awesome.
I mean, that's the guy you want as your pinch hitting expert and designated wall-crasher: the guy who spent part of WWII fighting the Nazis as an insurgent. Might be the only ball player from the era not intimidated by Bob Feller.
Have a great one!
