1995 Stadium Club #259 Member's Only

Card Review: N/A  This is the 7th and final variation of the '95 Stadium Club card.  Seven variations, all rather subtle, and all completely unnecessary.  It's an otherwise cool card.  One I think Stadium Club got right the first time.  Yet they did six more to be safe.  This one features the "Members Only" gold stamp on the side of the card.

You might notice that glove looks pretty worn in.  I have it on good authority that Tim Wallach used the same glove for the last 15 years or so of his career.  The Hall of Fame even asked for it when he retired, which Wallach reluctantly declined.  It may be a "dishrag," but it's his dishrag.  It's a sentiment you don't have to be a 17 year MLB vet to share.  I think a good number of people who played through High School (or not even that far) have a strong attachment to the leather they wore on their hand.

Number of this card in my collection: 1
