Mansfield, TX


This assortment of Wallach cards was sent by regular contributor Tom of Mansfield, Texas.  It's a nice group cards, including only the second '87 OPC Sticker and '90 Sportflics that I've ever been sent by a reader.  You may notice that's not Tim Wallach on the card in the lower right.  That's a card of the middle of three Wallach children, Brett.  Brett, a pitcher, was a third round pick of the Dodgers, but an arm injury cut his career short.  The youngest of the Wallach kids, Matt, is still playing in the Reds organization.  He's a long shot to make the roster out of spring training, but is expected to start the year in AAA Louisville.  I think there's a strong possibility that Matt could make his MLB debut at some point in the 2017 season.

Thanks for the cards Tom.
