a baseball card celebration of the dodgers and the infield of my youth.
13 May 2014
i cannot believe that this is not a card made by pacific
i have this card in my collection.
it's from 1997 and features the then top dodger prospect, karim garcia. garcia was more highly touted (at least as far as i can recall) than 1996 nl rookie of the year todd hollandsworth, and i am pretty sure he has more cards than holly as well. he wound up playing in only 29 games as a dodger over parts of three seasons, which means that there is something like 30 cards of garcia as a dodger for every regular season game in which he actually appeared as a member of the blue.
anyway, i would have sworn that this was from a set produced by pacific, but no. it's from 1997 topps stadium club, and is a millennium insert. i am learning more about my collection every day.
