The baseball cards of three of the four members of the famed $100,000 infield (Eddie Collins, Jack Barry and Frank "Home Run" Baker) actually existed. I created the card for John "Stuffy" McInnis by superimposing his head shot on the card of another member of the Philadephia A's. "Stuffy" was my baseball coach at Harvard in the early 1950's. When we played Holy Cross, there would be a reunion of two of the members of the $100,000 infield, because Jack Barry coached the Holy Cross baseball team. I loved hearing "Stuffy" reminisce about his days with the A's and their manager, Connie Mack. I created the "Stuffy" McInnis card to complete the foursome for a poster that I have displayed in my office.

    There was a John Romano who pitched briefly for the Brooklyn Dodgers in the late 1950's.
