George Culver

Here's George Culver on the 1973 Topps #242. I sent this to George 11/1/99 and received it back on 11/12/99. I always ask for an inscription, no matter if it takes up most of the card. That personal touch goes a long way...

George started out playing with Cleveland back in '67. He played with two other teams before ending up with Houston in '72. After playing with two more major league teams after that he did a stint in Japan with the
Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters. That's the 北海道日本ハムファイターズ for all you who speak Japanese.

Some highlights of 1972: the Dallas Cowboys whipped up on Miami in Super Bowl VI, the Soviets land on the moon, the legal system gave us Furman v. Georgia, Hanoi Jane makes a fool of herself, as do those involved in Watergate, and best of all big sideburns are all the rage!
