Take me to the Card Shop

This is a new highlight of the Friday update in which I’ll take a look back at a Rangers baseball card from years past.  No specific angle here.  Baseball cards were a huge part of my childhood, and one of the first ways that I went about showing my allegiance to the great game and my favorite players.

Friday Afternoon Knuckleballs

1990 Classic Julio Franco – As a kid, I loved this card simply because it captured “the stance”.  I remember countless backyard or sandlot baseball games with friends where many of us would emulate the stances of our favorite players.  Julio’s was always one of them.

Have a good weekend!
