Remembering an old BRUT ad

Fangraphs on The Great Joba Debate
For Pettitte, Wright DFA'd

A Red Sox Fan From Pinstripe Territory finds a unique way to honor and remember post-renovation Yankee Stadium: through the appearance of the old BRUT ad in baseball cards. In a massively long but highly entertaining post, Jere tracks the appearance of that once-iconic ad in baseball cards throughout the 1980s. A surprising number of visiting team players are featured in front of the ad. I guess Topps didn’t want to dispatch a photographer too far from its home at One Whitehall St. in Lower Manhattan.

    Ha… That picture of the Stadium Family Center surprised me a bit. When I was little that place creeped me out. Who knows what I was thinking, maybe I thought if a kid was bad their parents would drop them their during or after the game or something. My whole freaking family still makes fun of me every time we pass by that place on the Deegan. (Shivers)

          Mondesi, I think when all this gets sorted out, you and me should get an apartment together.

            Take it easy, TSJC. Why don’t you sit this next one out, stop talking for a while.
