If you eat a lot of Whataburgers (No. 2 with jalapeños, please), you have probably seen this old black-and-white photo from the 1950s. It's one of the vintage photos from Whataburger's early days in Corpus Christi that hangs on the wall of almost every location. It's a photo of the backs of the uniforms of the hamburger stand's little league team as they celebrated after a game.
For their 60th anniversary this year, Whataburger is trying to locate as many members of the team in the photo as possible. The former players will be treated to a reunion celebration at Whataburger Field in Corpus Christi this spring. Whataburger has already found one member of the team. It's believed that some of the former team members currently live in the Houston area.
