a baseball card celebration of the dodgers and the infield of my youth.
21 October 2008
there's a play at the plate!
i came across these cards while going through some 90’s stuff. i really enjoy the continuation aspect that the gaetti card brings to the play. i wish there were more cards like these – just imagine if other notable home plate plays or collisions had been captured this way – aj pierzynski/michael barrett, gary carter/brian downing, mike scioscia/jack clark, jeremy giambi/jorge posada, and, of course, pete rose/ray fosse.
if topps did a card like this today, it would be one of their ‘classic combination’ cards which just means these two players were photographed in close proximity of each other during a game.
