Jay Gibbons on baseball cards

Outfielder Jay Gibbons played nine seasons for the Orioles and Dodgers. His best season was 2003, when he hit .277 with 23 HR and 100 RBI for Baltimore. Overall in 840 major league games he hit .260 with 127 HR and 427 RBI. Now a minor league hitting coach for the Dodgers, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"I know my favorite card of myself is one of Cal Ripken and me. Obviously very honored to be on the same card with Cal.

I collected baseball cards as a kid. My wife one Christmas had all of my cards at the time framed for me."

Thanks! I don't have that card, but here is one from my collection.
