Here’s something you might not have known about Luis Gonzalez — the Arizona Diamondbacks legend and 2001 World Series hero. He’s into baseball cards. Like, he’s got his own collection of Mike Trout cards at home.
So Gonzalez — now a senior advisor to the D-backs’ president and CEO — was happy to dig into this some old packs of Topps on “Old Baseball Cards,” our baseball card-driven nostalgia show.
We opened 1991 Topps and 1987 Topps and along the way found one of his favorite old teammates and had some memories to share about Roger Clemens, Steve Avery, Tony Pena and Jimmy Key.
If you’re new to our show, welcome aboard. We open baseball cards from the ’80s and ’90s with baseball players, coaches and famous fans. The cards usually aren’t worth anything, but the memories and stories that they inspire are fantastic. We have plenty of great episodes below that you should check out.
