Brady Raggio's favorite card

Brady Raggio pitched thirteen years of professional baseball, including three years in the major leagues with St. Louis and Arizona. He is now a corporate sponsorship account executive with the Diamondbacks' Triple-AAA affiliate, the Reno Aces. He kindly took the time to answer my question about his favorite card.

"My favorite card of myself is from 1997, when I was with the St. Louis Cardinals. It is just a head shot, but the background is our American Flag. That was my rookie year in the big leagues, and I heard that the rookies that year for that set of cards got the flag of their country as the back drop."

Thanks, Brady! The card is from the 1997 Bowman International parallel set. I couldn't find a picture of this card, so here is a picture of his regular 1997 Bowman card as well as an international card, so you can imagine what it would look like.
