Tony Scruggs on baseball cards

Outfielder Tony Scruggs played seven years of professional baseball, reaching the major leagues in 1991 with the Texas Rangers. Now an empathy coach in Los Angeles, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

- Do you have any stories about cards of yourself or of other players? 
One thing that comes to mind is just how "Assembly Line" photo day seemed. The well organized movement of people, from station to station, was a testament to a wonderfully pragmatic staff of folks, behind the scenes!

I loved being in the short-lived, "Major League Debut" series.

I love that not a month goes by, where a kind-hearted soul doesn't shower me with recognition and acknowledgment, by sending one of my few cards to sign! Truly grateful, to be seen!

- Do you have a favorite card of yourself or of another player?
Topps "Major League Debut" card.

- Do you collect baseball cards?
I have cards that nice collectors enclose (as Extras), along with cards they want signed, and I keep them! At the same time, I'm not sure I'm in the same category as those, who devote an exponential amount of passion, for this art, that's truly inspiring!
