Dennis Wiseman on baseball cards

Dennis Wiseman pitched five seasons in the Cardinals organization. His best season was 1990, when he went 13-6 with a 2.66 ERA for Springfield and St. Petersburg. Now the Chief Operating Officer of Radiology Associates of South Florida, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"I used to collect cards but gave them all to my brothers.... as I did with autographed balls, bats, jerseys. I never really thought of such things until I was done with the game. My favorite baseball card is my Johnson City card because it was my first baseball card. I couldn't believe all the hard work through the years actually came to reality. Seeing my picture on a card solidified that I was a "pro". Double A (Arkansas Travelers) was strange both years because two different card companies came in for the photo shoots."
 Thanks!

  1. I like this series of posts, Thanks!

    I also like how the answer to the "favorite card?" question is usually their first minor league card.
