Player Profile: Terry Bradshaw

I have seven cards of Terry Bradshaw. This one is from 1996 Collector's Choice.

Playing career: Outfielder Terry Bradshaw played in 34 games for the Cardinals in 1995 and 1996. He hit .262 with 0 HR and 5 RBI.

Where he is now: Minor league hitting coordinator for the Kansas City Royals.

Interesting stories: When Dmitri Young was posing for his 1993 Upper Deck card, he “was trying to look hard instead of smiling”. However, Bradshaw and Keith Jones were making jokes causing him to laugh, and his picture shows Young with a big smile. He refuses to sign that card today.

My memories: I remember being surprised to see a baseball player having the not-very-common name of a football star.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Terr, ahead of Terry Crews, a former NFL player who later was an actor in movies like Starsky & Hutch, Get Smart and the Expendables trilogy. There are no references to the baseball player in the first page of Google results; all refer to the NFL star.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Brian Brady.
