This Week in Baseball Cards: March 7

There's really nothing more to say other than...it time for toilets and Telemacos.  Here's Bo Rosny with This Week in Baseball Cards!

This week it was revealed that the Yankees take their official pictures in the bathroom. So that picture of Alex Rodriguez on the back of your baseball card was probably taken a yard away from a toilet.


And that game-used wood card of Gary Sheffield, whose gone from terrorizing journeyman pitchers to representing them? Yeah, that’s probably not from a bat, just from a block of wood they found under a urinal.


Finally, legendary Cubs broadcaster Harry Caray would have turned 98 this past week. Whenever I think of him, I think of him saying the name “Amaury Telemaco.” Apparently I’m not the only one.


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