This Week in Baseball Cards: January 31


It was a week of desperate cries of “look at me!” from attention whores Jose Canseco, Heath Bell, Logan Morrison and Dallas Braden.

Here's Bo Rosny with This Week in Baseball Cards!

Braden’s cry for attention was the most interesting, with a tattoo of Rollie Fingers on a dolphin. Too bad he didn’t get art that better showed off Fingers’ handlebar mustache, like this great Diamond King card.


Tim Tebow has been invited to throw out the first ball of a minor league game, which continues a long tradition of quarterbacks and minor league baseball. Which brings up a great trivia question. What do John Elway, Dan Marino and Jay Schroeder have in common? In 1979, they were all picked in the MLB draft before Don Mattingly.


Finally, there was a pretty good interview on this blog with Anna Benson, featuring a great game of word association. On my blog this week was an interview with her husband Kris. Find out why this card is his favorite.


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