Willie Bloomquist on baseball cards

IF-OF Willie Bloomquist played fourteen seasons in the major leagues, mostly with Seattle and Arizona. In 1,055 games he hit .269 with 18 HR, 225, RBI and 133 SB. He kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"My favorite card was the Bowman card my RC year. I was told that it once reached over $40. I about fell off my chair. I think it's now less than a quarter. My favorite card of another player was hands down the Billy Ripken "f*** face" card. (Pardon the language). That's just downright priceless. I still have my collection of cards that I had when I was a kid. There used to be some decent value in a few of them but I haven't checked in years."

Thanks! I don't have that rookie card but here is a card of him from my collection.
