here's another one from the set that i know features jeff blauser. it's larry walker's 1997 topps card
is ed sprague's card any different?
here are some 1997 topps cards that are easier to discern as double play cards
mike caruso of the white sox got a shiny dp card
here's another really nice back - it's the back of nomar garciaparra's card
mark lewis has a spring training double play turn on the front of his card
after thinking about the three cards up top, however, i wasn't too sure. so, off to baseball reference where i have convinced myself that this is either mcrae sliding in safely on his lead-off double to left to start the 5/8/97 game or it is mcrae about to be tagged out on a stolen base attempt. either way, it's not a double play.
just so we don't end the post on that note, here is a surefire double play attempt on what is yet another parallel of ryne sandberg's 2011 topps lineage card
oh wait, no. that's his 2011 topps sp cognac parallel. topps just used the same photo for his lineage card. at least it's a double play!
more to come tomorrow!
