1998 donruss signature edition
1998 leaf rookies & stars
2000 upper deck spx
that's a goodly amount of sheffield cards, and i don't think i showed them all. i've said it before, i was just getting comfortable with sheffield as a dodger when he started to pull his shenanigans. still, the guy put together one of the best offensive stretches in dodger history. and, if he ever finds his way into the hall of fame, he might go in as a dodger. he spent four years in la (eclipsed only by his six years in florida) and got more hits and hit more home runs as a dodger than anywhere else he played. if that happens, what do the dodgers do? do they retire his number? and if so, which number - 5 or 10? i can't see that happening, but it would be a first if he were to be enshrined in a dodger hat and they didn't retire the number.
they don't have to worry about all that with this next guy - shawn green on his 2000 upper deck mvp card
he didn't make the cut this year for reappearing on the hall of fame ballot, so he's one and done. here is his 2000 fleer gamers card
and his 2003 fleer ultra gold medallion card
on which he makes like roberto clemente by losing his helmet. speaking of which, anybody else out there see 'chasing 3000'? i watched it a couple of weeks ago, and it was cool to see some old footage of clemente. not so cool to see some recent footage of ray liotta. shoeless joe is not aging too well.
