HOFer kicked off card show guest list

Kentucky senator and Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Bunning was kicked off the schedule for autograph guests at the Gibraltar Trade Center show Dec. 13-14 in Taylor, Mich., because the show’s promoter was upset that Bunning voted against an auto industry loan package in the U.S. Senate On Dec. 11.

“Being a business owner in Michigan for over 30 years, I simply cannot support anyone who, in my opinion, votes against the economic well-being of our great state,” said Jim Koester, organizer of the Gibraltar show. Bunning spent nine years of his career with the Detroit Tigers and threw a no-hitter for the team in 1958.
