Adam Hyzdu on baseball cards

Adam Hyzdu played eighteen seasons of professional baseball, including 221 games at the major league level for Pittsburgh, Boston, San Diego and Texas between 2000 and 2006, hitting 19 home runs in just 358 at bats. He kindly shared with me some of his thoughts about baseball cards.

"The card from 2005 with the Padres was actually taken in Ft. Myers Florida in a Red Sox uniform. Scary what people can do with photos!

My favorite card is actually a Jeff Kent card with me taking him out at second base (only homers were more fun) ."

Thanks! I didn't have either of those cards, so here is one from my collection, from 2000 Fleer Tradition Update.


  1. Weiiiird. Your last two posts both have cards that I have signed thanks to Padrographs. The Topps Total here, and the Antonelli Topps in the last one. It's crazy seeing them unsigned lol.

  2. I always liked his 1991 Bowman Card

  3. Adam Hyzdu was always one of my favorite players...whether from the Altoona Curve to the Boston Red Sox...a classy Christian gentleman
