Cardboard Crosby: Upper Deck 1998

Upper Deck 1998

This is an Upper Deck "Top Prospects" card. The date on the front is 1998, but the copyright on the back is 1999.

The San Bernardino Stampede was a high-A team. I believe they are now known as Inland Empire 66ers of San Bernardino. (And I thought the "Las Vegas 51s" and the "Montgomery Biscuits" were odd names.)

Interesting photo. It's almost a pitcher-like pose. Very butch.

And here's the back:

Upper Deck 1998

It says:

Crosby is a lefty-hitting outfielder who spent last summer honing his talents at San Bernardino of the Class-A California League. The one-time Rice standout has already drawn comparisons to former Philadelphia center fielder Lenny Dykstra. Bubba was the top Dodger draft pick in 1998.
