A minor league gem

I ran across this card in my Class A notebook a while back and thought it was unique. It shows Ty Kovach pitching for the Watertown Indians in 1989. Note the camera is behind home plate, the pitcher is in full sun and the batter, catcher and umpire are in the shade. I don't think I have ever seen another card with this composition. You just don't see this camera work coming from Topps, Upper Deck or Fleer!

I had a secondary motive for showing this card: I wanted to try adding images to my blog and see how the mechanics worked.

I don't know much about Ty Kovach, but I assume he never made it to the big leagues.


  1. Welcome !!I have a lot of Indian cards , but I've never seen this one ! I'm new to this also , and trying to learn as I go. We have a similar past. I was born in New London ( about 60 miles sw of Cleveland ) in 1950. Just had a birthday on the 4th.I'll be waiting to see what you have to say !

  2. Agree that's a wonderfully composed photo! Some of those minor league cards are gems.
