PHOTOS: Inside The Little League World Series Museum

I went through the Little League World Series Museum about 7 years ago and I hadn’t been back until today.  Its not the biggest museum in the world but if your a baseball fan you’ll enjoy it.  Click on each photo for a closer look.

Jimmy Carter – Did you know he only attended one MLB game while he was President?

The Little League Trophy – this was on display at the National Baseball HOF until 1984.  Little League started the year the Baseball HOF opened to the public.

I need one of these in my room.  The bats rotate when you push the buttons.

Carl Stotz started Little League baseball in 1939.  With all the crazy cards put into circulation today, I’m surprised they never made one of him.  Many pro baseball players have played in the Little League World Series like Cal Ripken, Jr and Dale Murphy.  I could see a cut signature being made of Mr. Stotz.

Flashback Product of the Week – Pinnacle Inside

Over the years cards have been packaged in a lot of different ways.  Before Pinnacle died back in 1998, one of their last products they released was the second version of their Pinnacle Inside cards.  What made these cards unique wasn’t just the design of the cards, but the package they came in.  Instead of your standard wax or foil pack, Pinnacle Inside cards came in a clear plastic pack that was then inserted into a sealed soup can.  I don’t know where they came up with the idea that collectors would enjoy opening soup cans to obtained their cards, but this has to be one of the top craziest packaging ideas a card company has ever come up with.  WARNING!!!  DON’T TRY OPENING ANY OF THESE WITH YOUR TEETH!!!
