I recall trading pirate cards with a friend in 3rd-5th grade back in 1966-1968. I cannot locate such a set here on the database. Any other old codgers recall what I'm talking about?

If not those, something very, very similar. I'm having a hard time remembering the name of the pirate I loved growing up. All I recall is that he "died of a fever" and that scared me at the time, but I could relate to the pirate because of that. I believe the pirate was French.

Jean Lafitte died of yellow fever during an epidemic in New Orleans.

This whole time I thought this was a discussion about Pittsburgh Pirates.  I went to baseball-reference and searched for Jean Lafitte and didn't understand why he wasn't there.  I've since figured it all out.

When I posted the title to the thread I thought there would be someone who would mistaken it for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Now if I could be right about most things in life all would be better.
