Holy. Shit.

Real card-maker Topps is making real Major League cards with real licensing from Paramount and the real 1989 Topps card design in a set coming out next year.

Beckett Media’s Chris Olds has the story.

He’s a bit obsessed about Major League and so am I.

Inside Pedro Cerrano’s baseball card collection

UPDATE: The mystery card is definitely a San Francisco Giant and it’s definitely not a standard-sized card.

For a voodoo warrior who has problems getting along with his teammates, Pedro Cerrano sure does show a soft spot for baseball greats and their baseball cards showing in his locker doesn’t he?

From left just above Jobu, that’s a 1984 Donruss Eddie Murray Diamond Kings card, a 1968 Topps Game Roberto Clemente, a mystery card, a 1971 Topps Willie McCovey, a 1954 Topps Hank Aaron rookie card and a 1952 Topps Jackie Robinson.

Anyone have any ideas on the mystery card? My leading guess is that it might be a 1957 Topps Clemente. I’m admittedly not sure, though, as it also looks like it could be a Willie Mays or Monte Irvin mug. Plus, the card looks like it could be narrower like a 1968 Topps 3D card or a Kellogg’s card, but I can’t match it anywhere.

Is that you, Tolbert?

tolbertSure, Major League was 20 years ago, but this Tolbert is the only Tolbert in MLB history.

Collectors tell me that the Rookie Card logo has resulted in some old rookies appearing on baseball cards these days, but this just might take the cake.

Maybe Jake Taylor was talking to his daddy… I just don’t know.

At least he’s not a Yankee.

Hey, Topps … how long do we have to wait for Pedro?

I’d like to think that this card would be in the forthcoming 2009 Topps Heritage high-number baseball card set, but 20 years of waiting for a Pedro Cerrano card makes me think it’s just ain’t happening.

Good thing we got Wild Thing some glasses…

Sometimes it’s the little things that remind you of key moments — like when we finally got Ricky Vaughn some glasses.

Here’s what his 1989 Topps Record Breaker card would have looked like had they not decided to play nice and pull it from the set. After he started giving ’em the heater and was much more successful, the powers that be apparently opted to not pick on my rookie.
