Since I have over 60 baseball player collections, I was really up for Diamond King's A-Z Player Challenge. There aren't a lot of HoF'ers in my list, so I won't be picking a lot of the "chalk" players - this is a "favorite" list, not a "best" list, right?
I had this list mapped out and just needed to add the card images when I hit Undo and suddenly the whole post was wiped out (and instantly autosaved to prevent any chance of recovery!) So call this the 2.0 edition.
Actually, I like Wrigley Wax's approach - just the images and blurbs, no titles.
And of course, I start off with a big "chalk" pick. If it was just about cards, I might say Garrett Anderson (I know someone with a PC), or the Alou brothers. But Hank was a pillar of the game, and such a class act that I can't deny him.
Lots of choices here. In my PC's I have Paul Blair, Dusty Baker, Don Baylor, Nelson Briles, Bob Bailor, Bobby Bonds, Larry Bowa, Ollie Brown and Pookie Bernstine. Vida's got the unique name and one of the bigger "cool factors".
Keeping with the Oakland theme, Campy edges out Cesar Cedeno and Cecil Cooper (even though he's not a double C). Played all 9 positions and another just cool dude.
This one was tough. Coulda said my local favorite Doug DeCinces, but I just like Ivan better. Not even sure why. He's the first of two generations of major leaguers along with Ivan Jr.
Dwight Evans signing at a show. (I got Livan Hernandez's sig right next to him.) Back when I liked the Red Sox, Evans was a big part of the team.
