Garvin Alston on baseball cards

Garvin Alston pitched eight seasons of professional baseball, mostly in the Rockies organization, winning 33 games and saving 34. He made the major leagues with Colorado in 1996. Now the bullpen coach for the Arizona Diamondbacks, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"I am not a card collector, my only story that I would have about any one of my baseball cards, is that in one of my cards I was using a teammate's glove, Mark Thompson."

Thanks! I would guess that this is the card he is referring to, as it is his only one with a tan glove.

All his other cards have him wearing a black BEN glove, like this one, or a Louisville Slugger glove with his name clearly visible.
