1995 Stadium Club #259

Card Review: 8.8 (8.4 of which are strictly for the shot of the glove and ball)  You have to wonder what Wallach was thinking while the Topps photographer made him pose for this card.  Also, where exactly was this picture taken?  Are those pine trees in the outfield?  I guess it's kind of cool.  As for the back, well, it's not that cool.

Fun Facts: Take a good look at the glove in this photo.  Wallach used the same glove for nearly his entire career, which is actually extremely rare among major leaguers.  So rare in fact, that The Hall of Fame in Cooperstown asked Tim for the glove upon his retirement, a requests he politely declined. 

Number of this card in my collection: 5
