Todd Mensik on baseball cards

First baseman Todd Mensik played eight seasons of professional baseball, mostly in the A's organization. Now Director of Marketing at Midwest Orthopedic Consultants, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"I did collect as a kid, actually quite a bit. I had a goal to get every Pete Rose card out there and I did, with his rookie card being the exception. Love older cards but also the '83 set with a bunch of star rookies. My cards, just felt blessed to be able to have one. Then when people actually wanted it and wanted me to sign, it was surreal."

  1. Magic Mensik. One of my favorites watching in minor leagues. I dubbed him Magic because hitting homeruns at right times. There few times he hit it to tie or put the team ahead. Another time his team was losing in blowout and he smacked one out trying give his team a spark. Never did, but watching hit homeruns was magic to me
