Set: 1985 Barry Colla Postcards

Card: #4085 Atlee Hammaker

“ Photographer --"Atlee, just stand there doing your best Statue of Liberty imitation." ” -rmpaq5

“ When I think of Atlee Hammaker, I always think of giving up the first grand slam in an all-star game. It was 1983 and Fred Lynn hit it. He was a nice guy who lived in Knoxville, Tenn., for a while post-career. ” -joshthurman

“ One of the many outstanding issues done by Barry Colla throughout the years. Finding the Giants sets is relatively easy, but good luck with tracking down the Mets, Twins, or Indians. In fact, I may have some Giants sets for sale or trade! ” -Dave Sosidka

“ Nice to see oddball stuff here, ” -captkirk42

“ I've heard Hammaker was quite a good pitcher, though I followed an American League team while he toiled in the NL (back before interleague play and the Internet), so I didn't see or hear much about him. Nice shot. Could have been cropped a wee bit closer to show a little less sky... ” -dilemma19

“ Nice , I'd get it just cause of the guys cool name , he was actually a pretty good pitcher too. ” -uncaian

“ Why don't people send postcards anymore? ” -carthage44

“ Nothing special about this. This is just an photo, and an awkward one at that. Not a big fan of the fake pose. This is obviously not an action shot, but meant to look like one. Even though it is a postcard, it would have been cool to put a name on the front and stats on the back to give it a card feel. ” -muskie027

“ Doesn't belong...IMHO ” -SFC Temple

“ "new ball, ump". ” -NJDevils
