Joey Vierra's favorite card

Joey Vierra pitched ten seasons of professional baseball, mostly in the Reds and White Sox organizations. In 412 games he went 29-24 with 36 saves and a 3.38 ERA. Now a special education teacher in Hawaii, he kindly answered my question about his favorite baseball card.

"Chris Lombardozzi had a baseball card of himself eating a burger.  The company that made the burger is the competitor of the company that printed the card.  It's a classic."

Thanks! Looks like the card is sponsored by McDonald's, but I can't make out the logo on Lombardozzi's drink. Are any of you readers familiar with it? (Or even better, have one to trade?)

Here is a card of Vierra from my collection.


  1. It's definitely Arby's. I found it on COMC and I'm gonna buy one lol. When you zoom in there it's def Arby's! I hope he's eating a Big Montana.
