Tournament semifinal #2

Here's semifinal #2. Remember--you must be a follower of this blog to vote, and you can vote for whichever card you this is best for any reason. Aside from the Fetters card (which is interesting for other reasons) these are some really nice photographs.


  1. oh man.. where do I start? The David Justice card is awesome! First, you've got the old school Eddie Matthews stance on the front. Classic. Second, you've got the rather unique football style batting helmet on the back. David is ready for war. Third, his position is incorrectly listed as 1B. Dave was a RF. Error card!!! You all know how rare and valuble early '90's error cards are.
    Last, but not least, I leave you with two words...
    Halle Berry.

    'nuff said.

  2. "Bye Bye" Baerga is the bast card, because that is the rookie card of an important part of baseball history. He could play third in addition to his primary position of second. He was traded by the Padres for Joe Carter (Alomar Jr. was just a throw in), and the Indians considered him so important that they signed him to a long term deal (along with other young players) before he got to old. After he was washed up they were able to find some poor sucker to take him off of their hands (the Mets). Most importantly his claim to fame is that he was the first (and one of only two) player to hit one home run from both sides of the plate in the same inning (4/8/93)

  3. The Baerga writeup almost had me, but nostalgia got me in the end. And capt'n is right, the helmet is wild. The Justice is a NICE card!

  4. Dave Justice is the only one missing a sweet mustache on this list. For shame!

  5. This poll is a barn-burner, with a 3-way tie for first place at the moment.
