We’ve done some nosing around and have found this exclusive first look world premiere scoop of all scoops — the 14 cards pulled at the last second from the 1989 Upper Deck baseball card set. (Including a card of yours truly, Lou Brown.)
You see, Upper Deck had better things to do in 1989 than include a real Star Rookie named Ricky Vaughn in its inaugural baseball card set. (They instead opted for some bum named Ken Griffey Jr. for card No. 1.)
And they made some other last-second changes to the set — opting to not include managers, bench coaches, announcers and even some Major Leaguers in the 700-card first series.
My team was very, very disappointed. However, after 20 years these “missing” cards have been discovered and can only be found here on my blog.
— Lou Brown

What can you say about Harry Doyle? The guy wears his team pride on his sleeve just like he wears his Jack Daniel’s behind his right ear.
Everybody in my clubhouse knows I’m not one for giving inspirational addresses — and I could care less about sportswriters. But the voice of the Tribe is a Hall of Famer, and the host of Tepee Talk gets my attention when he’s on the air.
We share a common bond — we can’t stand Jack Parkman or Rachel Phelps. Now that I’m retired, I can say it. Harry, though, is still behind the microphone to this day.
