it's been a while since i posted a bunch of double play cards. these cards were once a way for me to appreciate non-dodgers and at the same time, recall the pure joy of turning a double play. i even wrote a double play themed entry for a local literary workshop that was seeking baseball themed haiku a few years back:
a pitcher's best friend
is not diamond or dog
it's a double play
sadly, there have been so few lately that i have bothered to get excited about. where have you gone, 1971 topps cookie rojas? well, this 2010 bowman erick aybar is pretty cool.
this 2008 upper deck first edition aaron hill is one of those mundane cards i was referring to above
here's bobby hill on a pretty decent 2003 upper deck 40 man card
angel berroa's 2005 upper deck card is ok
and here is kennedy on his 2002 fleer ultra card at the point of touchdown.
finally, scott spiezio delivers what a double play card should on his 1999 upper deck card
airborne, the hapless force out is fully visible, and we even get to see the ball on its way to first to complete the twin killing. that's more like it.
