Old School All Stars: "Freight Train"


This card portrays Clarence "Freight Train" Biddle, 10 year veteran offensive center for the Rochester Redbirds. Clarence is built like a fireplug.

Constable Singh



Original miniature painting by Mick Reasor featuring "Constable Singh." Thanks to Commissioner Inkster, Constable Singh is allowed to replace the traditional Stetson hat with the traditional Sikh turban. Having recently been (pronounced "bean") transferred from the "mean streets" of Montreal to the wheat fields of Alberta, will Constable Singh find acceptance from the traditional folk of the Canadian plains?

Inspector Fitzgerald and His Samoyed Prince




Original miniature painting by Mick Reasor featuring Inspector Fitzgerald and his perky samoyed Prince. Actually, the perky samoyed belongs to Mrs. Inspector Fitzgerald. The dog makes the Inspector nervous. He doesn't trust the canine. He thinks that constant smile must be covering ulterior motives. Nevertheless, they are both proud members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and have an uneasy agreement to work together to "Maintain the Right."

King has the scent of dark toffee and peanuts (and the occasional discarded wrapper) to follow. Both proud members of the RCMP, Rex and King join forces to "Maintiens le Droit." (That's "Maintain the Right" for you anglophones).
