i like this one.  touch second base, joe carter.  you'll never be on a double play card as good as this again.  or something like that.

1997 topps mickey morandini
with mitch webster and dodger stadium

1998 topps kevin polcovich
i think this play continues on his 1998 topps stadium club card.  i need to find my copy of that one.

1997 topps mark lewis
not a bad run of dp cards from these two sets. and there may be more in there than just these.
