The name of the player representing the Pittsburgh Pirates is Nate MCLOUTH, not McClouth (no double C).
In a recent post, I stated that if Evan Longoria is chosen as the Final man, he would be the only guy that does not have a card in the current set, following in the footsteps of Dmitri Young last year and John Hudek in 1994. While, yes, Longoria doesn't have a Topps card in the 2008 flagship set, neither do these guys:
- Justin Duchscherer, Oakland Athletics
- Joe Saunders, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
- George Sherrill, Baltimore Orioles
- Evan Longoria, Tampa Bay Rays (Final Man)
- Kosuke Fukudome, Chicago Cubs (no, the WBC card does not count)
- Ryan Ludwick, St. Louis Cardinals
This may be a record for All-Stars without a base Topps card going into the All-Star break. This is why Topps should bring back those large 792 card sets. Because you never know, any of those guys who you would throw in the commons bin could be the All-Star MVP!!!
Well, you can add four more guys to the Updates and Highlights set.
