Scott Sanders on baseball cards

Scott Sanders pitched seven years in the major leagues for the Padres, Mariners, Tigers and Cubs. He now runs the Sanders Baseball & Softball Academy in Louisiana. He kindly answered my request for his thoughts on baseball cards.

"One of my favorite cards is: Tony Gwynn forgot his jersey at the hotel for a spring training game, and had to hit in my jersey-- his 1st at bat. It ended up on one of his baseball cards.
My favorite card is my Topps rookie card. It is me & Brian Johnson. I waited all of my life to have a MLB Rookie Card. It is my favorite--even though I share it with Brian.
I collected cards as a youngster. My mom collects cards for my kids now."
