so i picked up a few upper deck victory singles a couple of weeks ago from both 2001 and 2002. some of which featured double plays, like this adam kennedy card from the 2002 set
and this jose offerman card from the 2001 set
and eric young, also from the 2001 set
or this dick schofield card from 1991 upper deck that seems to show kenny lofton getting a cheekful of glove after trying to break up a double play
these cards have been added to my double play binder, as well as the complete list of double play cards in my collection that is now posted over at my want list site. any card not listed there is greatly desired by me.
another card on that list that is fairly new to me is this 1995 upper deck minors danny klassen card.
i also grabbed this nomar garciaparra card. i know - it is not a non-red sox nomar - but at first i thought it might be a shot of the aftermath of a dp turn.
turns out, i think bernie williams has just stolen a base. false alarm.
some of the impetus to pick up the victory cards came because i was looking for some cards of obscure dodgers. it doesn't get much more obscure than bruce aven.
there are more cards of andy ashby as a dodger than there are of bruce aven, but this one features the good ol' former team's uniform
jim leyritz only appeared for the dodgers during the 2000 season, his last in the big leagues, making this 2001 card a final tribute.
that was .125 points below gary sheffield who led the team in batting average over the course of the 2000 season. how did i know that? because i picked up a team leader card, too.
whatever, this post was about some double play cards and my comprehensive 'have' list of people turning two or at least a reference to a twin killing. check it out and let me know if you have any cards (or just know of any) that aren't on the list!
