Indian's fans always welcome here!

Fans of the Indianapolis Indians that is.
Any TRUE Reds fan would have known that.
The Reds have used the team a few times in the history of the Indians (even before snagging Casey and Phillips) as an affiliate.
  • 1939-1941
  • 1961 Division Title Team
  • 1968-1983 League Champs in 1982, Division Champs 1971, 1974, 1978, 1982
  • 1993-1999 League Champs in 1994, Division Champs 1994, 1995
So today I have a set I recently acquired of the 1978 Division Champion Indianapolis Indians


Sorry I had to use the ebay scans but these cards need flattening and are just a tad too big to fit in a 9 page.

So enjoy this great look at late 70's Reds goodies. Mario Soto, Harry Spillman, Mike LaCoss and the gang. And one question - when are the Major League card makers going to start adding Trainers and Bench Coaches to their sets?

I just got the '77 and '79 sets recently, but don't have the '78 yet. The only thing I don't like about these cards is that they are slightly oversized, so they don't fit in standard album pages, and I can't seem to find pages they will fit in. So for the time being, they are staying inside their flimsy package wrapper.
