A Common Theme

Just a quick post today.  As I was flipping through the wondrous pages of the Yellow Binder, I came across a few cards that seemed to have a few things in common...


Seems that the common theme was to have Dodgers middle infielders getting Padre runners out.  Bip Roberts is doing his best to break up a pair of double plays, first by leading with a helmet to the groin, then by hitting the dirt as the fielder moves to his right.  

Joe Carter also appears to be out on this one, though it looks like Harris had to apply the tag.  Caught stealing?  Trying to stretch a single into a double?  Who knows.

Judging by the outfield wall, I'm guessing that the Griffin and Harris cards might've been from the same game, while the Vizcaino was taken on a different date.

By the way, the poll is now closed for the first "Best of the Set" vote, and Marquis Grissom will be representing the Expos.  Congrats to Mr. Grissom.  Trying to figure out what team to do next.  Will be taking any and all suggestions, first come, first served.

  1. You've gotta save the Dodgers for last, right? So, let's see... getting heady with the power... How about stay in Canada and go the Blue Jay way?

    1. Blue Jays it is! Saving the Dodgers for last? Not sure if the Padre fan in me will let that happen - showing three cards of the Dodgers getting them out was hard enough.

  2. I think your poll might've been screwed up. It said you could vote for 2 cards, right? But it seemed like only the first vote was being counted.

    1. Hmmm... Not sure what's going on there. It says that there were seven different voters, but only ten votes total, when it should've been 14. I'll try to test it out before going full boar on the next one.
