Danny Garcia on baseball cards

Second baseman Danny Garcia played for the Mets in 2003 and 2004. In 77 games he hit .227 with 5 HR and 23 RBI. Now the owner and performance coach at SportsEast Performance at The Hitting Academy in Tampa, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"Favorite stories about a card? ... The card where I'm rounding third was of me hitting my first HR off Mark Redman of Marlins.
Favorite card? ... is a card that says my name on it, but it's a picture of my friend and teammate Jorge Velandia. It's hilarious.
Do I collect? ... I collected my entire childhood, loved it. Had Griffey and Ichiro rookie cards ... miss those days!"

Thanks! Here is a card of him from my collection:
