Corey Hart on baseball cards

Outfielder Corey Hart played eleven seasons in the major leagues, mostly for the Brewers. A two-time All-Star, his best season was 2010, when he hit .283 with 31 HR and 102 RBI. Overall, in 1,048 games, he hit .271 with 162 HR and 538 RBI. Now a youth baseball coach in Arizona, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"I was so proud of my first card, rookie ball card from Ogden. Looked like I was 12 and weighed 100 pounds but I had it ready to show to anyone who asked !!!

My favorite card is of me. It’s an autographed ring card  When I made the 2010 All Star team, we got All Star rings. We all signed cards to go along with them. They were sold at an auction, I was able to get mine back recently. It’s nice to have to go with the ring.

I collect my cards, I have probably 100 different ones, most I got from my father in law who was a big collector.  I’ve got a couple cool ones I show case at the house, Babe Ruth , Hank Aaron , and a Mickey Mantle."

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


  1. I remember him. I had to look up his career because I remember him being pretty good. Looks like he was never the same after that knee surgery.

  2. Cool. I wonder if his father-in-law became a collector before Hart married his daughter or after?

  3. Good player. I believe the Brewers used "Sunglasses at Night" for his walk up music.

  4. That ring card sounds cool. If I played baseball at the MLB level, I would collect my own cards too.
