Yankees Baseball Card Trivia at Noon – Yankees Vice Presidents
ProfRobert here. Paul is kindly allowing me to guest curate again this week. The political races are heating up, so this week we’ll be looking at namesakes (at least surnamesakes) of U.S. Vice Presidents. In keeping with the theme, nearly all of the Yankees are as obscure as their namesakes. None of the Veeps became President, so we’re including a photo of the namesake as likely useless hint. We’re also going in reverse chronological order that the Veep served. Bonus point if you can name the ex-Veep along with the ex-Yankee.
Thursday: We’re back into the 19th Century now. This Yankee catcher is well known, unlike everyone else this week, but mostly for his work with another team. The Veep managed to die less than seven months into his term, certainly not the legacy he’d pick for himself.
