Thanks to John Dreker for mentioning to me today is Wilbur Cooper's birthday. It is interesting that today is the birthday of the greatest infielder in Pittsburgh Pirates' history and the birthday of the team's one 200 game winner. Let's see all things Wilbur Cooper!

Thanks Brian, here is the article I mentioned to you which I'm posting here just to bump the thread because I'd like to see more Cooper cards. All I have for him is a GD/VG E120 card you will have to picture in your head for now

Also, I have wondered about the player featured on the "Babe" Adams card in the W516 set as the same picture is featured on Cooper's W520 card (which I believe both to be Cooper), none of the guys look like Adams so who is on the W516 "Will. Cooper" card?...
