Don Barbara on baseball cards

First baseman Don Barbara played six seasons in the Angels, Brewers, Dodgers and Red Sox organizations, twice hitting over .350. Now the hitting coach for the University of the Pacific, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"I used to carry the same baseball card of Don Mattingly in my back pocket from my junior year of high school till I retired and I still have it. The other side was my brothers card. Two heros. They used to do a lot of stories on it when I was playing in the minors."

Thanks! Here is one of those articles, from the LA Times in 1990.
