This Week in Baseball Cards: August 24

From babies to ballhawks, milestones to mustaches...The Hall has run the gamut this past week.  Here's Bo Rosny with another installment of "This Week in Baseball Cards".

On Saturday, we posted the news that Chipper Jones would be returning in 2012, with a photo of the grizzled veteran looking every one of his 39 years. Here is a very different picture of a baby-faced Chipper from his rookie year of 1993.

The "Friday 5" featured ballhawk Tim Anderson, who caught home run balls on three straight days. I’d be more impressed if he caught an actual outfielder, like these Dodger fans did in 1992, snagging an authentic Darryl Strawberry.

Speaking of Dodgers, Friday also featured Alyssa Milano’s baby shower, where she got a personalized Dodger jersey for her baby. It might take the baby a little while to grow into it, much like Mark Leiter’s kid, who’s got a lot of room to grow in his Giants jersey, socks and hat.

Remember, gang, you can check out Bo's daily insights over at his site...Baseball Cards Come to Life.
