Pirate Autograph Project: #6

One of the hidden benefits to this project has been exploring the long history of the Pirates franchise.  I was still in high school when I started this, and it was really interesting to backtrack the history of the franchise and learn about some players I never realized had played in Pittsburgh.

Joe Orsulak best stuck in my brain as a guy who appeared on a lot of overproduction era wax as an Oriole.  That was it.  And in the days when my Pirate collection pre-1990 or so was woefully non-existent, I had much to learn.

Orsulak spent the first couple years of his major league career with the Pirates, and made a fair number of cardboard appearances as I would later learn.
