Hugh Kemp on baseball cards

Hugh Kemp pitched eight seasons of professional baseball, mostly in the Reds organization, 74-62 with a 3.67 ERA. Now a consultant at Pactera and a baseball coach at Charlotte Christian, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

- Do you have any stories about cards of yourself or of other players? 
I have a card from Venezuela that is not me.  It has me or my name as a left handed pitcher and I’m right handed.  I also laugh that you can find some cards of me on EBay for several dollars.  I wasn’t anybody.
- Do you have a favorite card of yourself or of another player?
I like my AAA All-Star baseball card from the 1st annual AAA All-Star game, that was played in Buffalo.
- Do you collect baseball cards?
I don’t, but my son does.  He has several boxes full of them.  He also gets some every Christmas in his stocking, since he was born.  He is now 16.

Thanks! I don't have either of those cards, but here is one I do have from 1989 ProCards.
