SuperTraders #6: Infield Fly Rule

Man, the #SuperTraders packages are rolling in faster than I can keep up. I will say that I've been spending some time each night organizing cards by team in hopes of sending packages soon. One of you is also getting a 1998 Donruss Crusade, but that's all I'll say.

Package #6 comes from Adam over at Infield Fly Rule. I have a decent amount of Rockies laying around, so Adam will be getting his fair share in return.

For some reason, this Brien Taylor card jumped out at me. I know most of you are familiar with his story. Lefty, threw 100, was picked first overall by the Yankees, was a top prospect in all of baseball, but got hurt in a bar fight and derailed his career.
We tend to prospect hug so much and are so aware of top prospects now, I can't imagine what Taylor's story would have been like in today's world, especially with social media. It would be crazy newsworthy. Seriously.

Anyhow, Adam sent me some other cool stuff from the past. I have honestly never seen this Mattingly Bowman.
Mike Stanley looks extra nerdy here, but man that guy was good for the Yanks. He doesn't get the credit he deserves for helping to turn the team around in the early '90s. His helmet also says #65, but he only wore #20 with the Yanks.
Do you know what I see when I look at these cards? TTM requests!
It was a great stack of Yanks, and I really enjoyed sorting through them. Thanks, Adam!


  1. You're welcome! Amazing how there always seems to be an overproduction card or two that have slipped under the radar all these years.

    Glad to know that I'm not alone.
