Bill Bliss on baseball cards

Bill Bliss pitched in the Cubs and Rockies organizations from 1991 to 1995, winning 13 games and saving 15. Now working for the MLB Players Alumni Association, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"I loved the chance to be on all the cards I was on. It was a privilege. I have a rookie Rod Carew that is my favorite, and a Goose Gossage that he signed for me. I do not actively collect anymore, but I have about 200,000 at home.I would pretend to build teams and memorize the stats of players and use the cards.I would not worry about what they are worth or trying to make money. It was the window and possiblity in a picture to live a future dream."
