I am aware of only a handful of cards on which Met coach Ernie White ever appeared; two of them are obscure issues from the 1940s, and the others are from team tribute sets that didn't appear until after Ernie's death. This one is from the SSPC 1963 Mets set produced in 1976.

"I had talked to his wife before the game and I asked her if she kept score when Ernie pitched. She said, 'I try. I start out keeping score, but if he stays in there for a few innings I chew up my pencil and I haven't got anything left to write with.' I saw her after the [1942 World Series] game in the Stadium--White pitched a 2-0 shutout-- and she smiled and said, 'I chewed up four pencils today.'"
