Thank goodness, the last checklist.
Tomorrow we'll start with actual pictures of players. As I move forward, my rankings will take into consideration such factors as card appearance, quality of ballplayer, originality, uniqueness, historical impact, and numerous other x-factors. Please feel free to argue vigorously or agree completely - there will be very little middle ground as my opinions will be swift and without mercy.
On a completely unrelated note...is it not utterly amazing that a player listed on this checklist - from 1988 - actually played in major league games last year!?! That's a span of twenty-four years!!! How fast can you spot the card?
Notable names: Ryne Sandberg, Sparky Anderson, Rickey Henderson, Dennis Eckersley, Tom Lasorda, Barry Larkin, Dick Williams, Kirby Puckett
(Confession - I ranked these checklists numerically, not by quality, so I think it's funny the checklist with the most hall of famers on it was actually ranked highest...)
