Rich Butler on baseball cards

Outfielder Rich Butler played for the Blue Jays and Devil Rays from 1997 to 1999. In 86 games he hit .223 with 7 HR and 22 RBI. Now the owner of the Butler Baseball Academy in Ajax, ON, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"Growing up I had a dream about playing Major League Baseball and to have my very own baseball card. So when I received my first one in Myrtle Beach in 1992, I was over the moon and just stared at it for days. It's one of my favourite trophies in my life."
Thanks! The image above was provided by Butler. I don't have that card, but here is one from my collection.
