Default Otto Kruger (Krueger) T206

Every now and then I stumble across something like this. He is listed on the card as Columbus, yet Baseball Reference has him list as last playing for Columbus in 1899. in 1909-1911 he was with Fresno, San Jose, Lawrence and Galveston. What gives?

All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Only 37.10% crazy based on recent polling data, but still a weird dude.

Great article Frank! I'd wondered about that myself but hadn't got around to looking into it. Glad to see I don't need to bother!

Edit to add one of my favorite cards:
