      Probably just testing to see how close attention kids paid to the stats on the back of the card.

​​​​​​​I apologize to the person who said great list a little while ago. I didn't mean to delete your message. Just the opposite. What you said is true. Every wrong birthdate was younger  on the card than they actually were. Thank you for enjoying my list. I'll be adding to it tomorrow.

#18 Frank Sullivan; Four seasons is correct. He spent most of 1953 in the minors. By MLB rules 1953 didn't count as a season with Boston because he didn't pitched at least 50 innings.

I think the card should say in his four complete seasons. He was 1-1 in 1953. If he was 1-0 they probably would have said he'd had 5 winning seasons. I do see your point also. Thank you for your input and reading my list.
