Dave Winfield Bat Card

2002 Topps American Pie, Through the Years, Dave Winfield (card #TTY-DW)

I picked this up a few months ago from Eddie, over at Sports Treasures. They are one of the local card shops in town. The one with the widest selection. And friendliest staffs. The store is on the north side of town, so I don't get there as often as I'd like, but when I do, it is a treat.

This is card came from the $5 case. I had done some website work on spec for Eddie. He didn't use it, but I think felt sorry for me and offered me the card. For free. I can't thank him enough, although I tried.

Well, normally I give a write up about the player featured on the card. You know, he played in 12 All-Star games in his 22 season career. He also won a mess of Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards. That sort of stuff.

Right now I'm tired, so I'll just point you over to Dave Winfield's page.

If you don't want to go over there, here's the tag...

He finally won a World Series ring with the Blue Jays in 1992.

Thanks, Eddie.


  1. Nice card. I'll always remember Winfield in Toronto.

  2. Well, plus he killed a bird with a baseball. Pretty impressive!

    Love Winfield cards from his Padres' days.

  3. The barter system. The way life should be.Do what you do best for free and get what you need or want for free!

  4. Heh, I have to agree... Barter system is the way to go! Great card of a great player!
