Kevin Mattison on baseball cards

Outfielder Kevin Mattison was the Marlins' 28th-round draft pick in 2008, and worked his way up the minor league ladder, making his major league debut in 2012. In 2013 he played at AAA New Orleans, hitting .216 with 7 HR, 31 RBI and 18 SB. He kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"I don't have any specific card in mind, but I enjoy looking at cards from years ago with players rocking sweet staches. Nothing better than rocking a dirty stache. I try growing a solid stache each year.  I don't think any of my cards have a "great" stache because it's usually in the beginning stages. I went with the Rollie Fingers stache in 2012. I have lots of cards that my brother and I collected when we were little.  I went back and looked at them a couple years ago and found several of my manager I have played for, Ron Hassey, which was pretty cool."



  1. Ha ha! When I read your post, I thought it was about me! My real life, non-blogger, non-superhero name is Kevin Mattson. Just missing the i.
