Shane Rawley on baseball cards

Shane Rawley won 111 big league games over 12 seasons for the Mariners, Yankees, Phillies and Twins. He now runs Shaner's Restaurant, a pizzeria in Sarasota, FL. He kindly answered my inquiry about his thoughts on baseball cards.

" I don't collect cards or have a favorite one. The only thing of any consequence is a mistake card of me. The picture is of Jimmy Anderson, but my name and stats are on the card."

Thanks! Here's the correct version, with the left-handed Rawley.

And here's the error, with the right-handed Anderson.

For good measure, here's Rawley in his Yankee days, preparing to do battle against the dreaded Angels.
