Cardboard Crosby: 2001 Bowman Chrome Gold Refractor

This card is dated 2001, which means the photo and information are from 2000. Bubba looks very young and innocent in this shot, unlike the butch look on this card.

And here's the back:

The "Bowman Briefing" on the back says:

RESUME: Led Vero Beach (A) in home runs in 2000... Overcame back, knee, and shoulder injuries... Hit .296 with 19 steals for San Bernardino (A) in 1999... Swatted .394 with 25 homers for Rice Owls in '98... Named to Western Athletic All-Conference Team.

SKILLS: Good power/speed hybrid... Shows fine strike zone judgment... Impresses scouts with work ethic and attitude.

UP CLOSE: Hit homer in second game of '00 Cal League playoffs to lead San Bernardino to 6-5 win over Lake Elsinore.

And now for something completely different...

Here's an Andy Phillips card, for the Andy fans who have wandered in here lately:

It's a 2004 Columbus Clippers card. Nice photo of Andy.

The Andy Phillips card is from the set the Clippers used to sell. Dunno if they still sell them, now that they are no longer part of the Yankees organization.

Is there a Louisville card for Bubba?

I don't think there's a Louisville card for Bubba yet. The cards are usually a year behind. There might be one next year.

Andy hasn't gotten a fair shot, yet. He looked pretty good at the plate in his pinch hit the other day.
