What If...

The tread on the '69 Munson card inspired me to throw this one out that I did last month. We all heard the story about how Fidel Castro supposedly had a tryout with the Senators...
*NOTE: in no way am I glorifying this dirtbag dictator, just an interesting sidenote of baseball lore.

Nah, Fidel was a righty in every picture I've seen of him batting and throwing.
The stogie is a good idea, but I wanted to make it look like a real card from when he could have actually been in the majors, although the whole story is really a hoax...
