Marty Cordova, the 1995 American League Rookie of the Year, hit 122 HR in nine major league seasons. Now the owner of Skeletal Metal, a company which produces UFC-related jewelry, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.
"I had a card that on the front I was swinging a bat that was broke. Almost the whole barrel long ways. It looked like I was swinging a sword.
The first card I ever had, Elizabethton Twins, they misspelled my name Marty Cordoua. That sucked.
I have a ton of my own cards. If there was a rare one or the action figure I had, Starting Lineup. That's all I would want :) "
