“ Neat uniform! Seeing it instantly made Marty Robbins' song pop into my head. Not sure that Hobo Joe's logo screams fine foods, though... ” -Billy Kingsley

“ All it needs is a nice home in someone's collection. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Whoa. Those uniforms are straight-up FIRE! ” -mkaz80

“ Combo uniform....Pirates, Mariners and the Washington Redskins. Love it....this very simple card is slice of Americana from my boyhood era in Baseball. ” -tbshaw

“ Name : Weldon Swift Team: El Paso Diablos Sponsor: Hobo Joe's Coolness: Off The Charts ! ” -uncaian

“ I always loved the El Paso uniforms. Classic 80s minor league ” -jasongerman9

“ Hobo Joe's is the homeless Big Boy of restaurants. ” -UKboogie

“ From the team name to the player name, this is a collectible card. Great minimalist design. The type of guy you would open a cold one with the guys with... 7th pick in the 1978 draft from Miami-Dade College. 4 of the top 7 picks came from Miami Dade college that year. That team must have been awesome to watch. ” -parsley24

“ Those colors! Great scan. I really wished TCMA had actually put some facts on these "Fact Cards". Couldn't even get birth dates! Still, I'd love any of these older sets. ” -vrooomed

“ On the back Hobo Joe's is the King of Fine Foods! Who knew? ” -carthage44

“ Now that is a uniform! Standard for minor league, but I still would have enjoyed some stats. ” -muskie027

“ Nice vintage MiLB. Love the uni, despite the pullover top. ” -kents_stuff

“ I wonder if the back of the jersey says Chico's bail bonds ” -rmitchell6700

“ Like the Winnipeg Jets sweaters from the 1980s and 1990s, this uniform needs to come back! ” -IndyBean17

“ The uniform looks like it was excess material from Chico's Bail Bonds. Weldon also looks like Tom Cruise. ” -jupiterhill

wow, what a look, the minors always create original designs for their unis, as far as the card itself, its pretty basic, but thats what makes it so great, it takes u back in time.

I been thinking a lot about wanting to go to a minor league baseball game lately. Now I realize this card may be what put the idea in my head.  BTW, has anyone ever calculated the number of days between when we comment on a RCOTD and when it appears?
