2010 Albuquerque Isotopes #2 (Multi Ad)

Card Review: 6.7  At this point, any new Wallach card is a welcomed event.  Even a stadium give-away like this.  Of the few Isotope cards of Wallach, this one is one of the better designs, and probably the worst picture.  It's too bad they didn't put a little more effort into the photo selection.

Fun Facts: *Tim Wallach led the Isotopes to their 1st playoff appearance and a franchise record 80 wins.
*The Isotopes are the Triple-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers
*They wear Albuquerque Dukes uniforms on throwback night
*The Isotopes replaced the Dukes when the Dodgers moved their Triple-A affiliate out of Albuquerque.  The 'Topes were originally a Double-A affiliate of the Florida Marlins
*Tim Wallach left the Isotopes after the 2010 season to become 3rd Base Coach for the Dodgers
Number of this card in my collection: 10  
2013 update: 13
