PostTue Oct 03, 2023 11:35 am

1. 2014 Joaquin Benoit SD RP 2L 1.49era 0.77whip 10.6k/9 Pitched 16 years in MLB - No Card. Benoit had breakout season at 32 in 2010 with Tampa Bay. Even better card at 36 in 2014 with San Diego. Padres only have a couple of high-end relievers to choose from. Check out his card in the 2014 set. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/90041/2014/1/2014
2. 1919 Babe Ruth Bos LF/RF 2(-4)e1 Would give us a Ruth hitting card for the Red Sox. Babe led the league in runs, Hr (29), rbi, obp, & slugging.
3. 1959 Harmon Killebrew WAS 3B/LF Always on the waiver wire, he has only 3 relatively even cards, at 2L E and 1R. This is a 7L, with 8 Ball Park Homeruns vs righties. Cheap because he doesn't do anything else well. Usable at all is a big improvement for this Hall of Famer
4. 2002 Matt Clement Cubs RH SP only 2003 'Fever Pitch' rotation starter with no card. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/8272/1700/1/120
5. 1947 Pee Wee Reese, BKN, Bats-R, BAL-E, SS-1e28. .414 OBP! Let's get his BEST card in there this time ;)
6. 1908 Bill Burns WSH LH SP (no *) 1.70 era, 0.933 whip, 134 era+, 2.07 fip, 3.06 so/bb, 7.4 h/9. No card.
7. X
8. 1975 Bill "Mad Dog" Madlock, CHC 3B, righthanded. His .354 won the NL batting title that season, also .402 OBP and .479 SA, good for a 141 OPS+. He hit lefties a little better that season, and wasn't the greatest fielder. But we need more third basemen and he hit .354! This card should play well in small ball parks. :D
9. 2001 Jason Giambi Oakland, 1B, Bats L, 2R .342 38 120 .477 .660 1.137 Career highs in BA, DO, TR, OBP, SLG, OPS, OPS+, extra base hits, TB & SB. Near career highs in H, BB, HR, RBI. Led league in DO, BB, OBP, SLG, OPS & OPS+ & WAR. 2nd in MVP voting. Has more hits, doubles, extra base hits and hits lefties better, with more HRs vs. lefties, than his 2000 MVP card. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/408/1700/1/120
10. 1990 Barry Bonds. His first MVP, gold glove and all star game. His career high with 52 steals, a second card to represent the Pirates and his pre steroid days. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/3955/1690/1/90
11. 1928 Del Bissonette BKN 1b Bats L Bal E 1b3e19 injury risk 3 188 Hits 30 doubles, 13 triples, 25 Home runs. Had four promising seasons was often injured after that but this his Rookie Season was Outstanding!
12. 1997 Roberto Alomar BAL Bats-S BAL-7R 2b-1e10 INJ Risk-15(2) This card will get a LOT of use - great def 2b that can hit RHs...no card to link to, but in the card viewer it looks great! 5 ballpark HRs vs righties, in addition to the fantastic OBP!
13. 2015 Russell Martin Tor C - All-star in his first season in Toronto, C1 -3 arm. would be a significant improvement over what Toronto has in the ATG set. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/714/2015/1/2015
14. 1955 Mickey Mantle NYY CF overlooked year that was one of his best. led the league in HRs and Triples as well as walks, OBP, OPS,. only year he led the league in Triples and ONLY 2 errors plus 11 Assists. One of The Micks best all round years. also 8-1 SB's. he also played 2 games at SS with a 1000 Fielding %. a 5 tool year from The Mick! A Mick card with Doubles, Triples, HR's, OBP and 0 DP's. What's not to like?
15. 1944 Snuffy Stirnweiss NYY 2B 2e17- .319/.389/.460 - led league in Runs, Hits, triples and stolen bases. 4th in MVP voting.
16. 1969 Ed Kirkpatrick KC RF-LF-CF-C-1B-3B-2B, Bats L, 8R. Very useful Swiss Army knife who bops RHP: .286/.374/.508. A comp at the plate might be '83 John Lowenstein, but with more XBH and HR, less BB, and an ability to stand in there a little bit vs LHP. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/36449/1660/1/60
17. 1939 Johnny Mize, 1B 4e19, Cardinals, Bats L .349 28 108 .444 .626 1.070. Career high in DO (44!), OBP & OPS. 2nd career high in BA, H, TR (14!), SLG, OPS+. Led league in BA, HR, SLG, OPS, OPS+, TB. 2nd in MVP voting (to Bucky Walters). Not as many HRs as his other cards, but has more hits, DO, TR & OBP. Perhaps the best card for the HOFer.
18. 1937 Wally Moses Philadelphia A's BA:.320/OBA:.374/SLG:.550 DO-48/TR-13/HR-24 RF-2/CF-3/LF-4 Arm(0)
19. 1969 Mike Andrew's 2B key member of the '67 Impossible Dream Red Sox and later Charlie Findlay's favorite whipping boy, set career highs in BA , OBP and SLG. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/30239/1969/4/1969
20. 1947 Ralph Branca, Brooklyn, Throws-R, 3R Balance, 21-12, 2.67 ERA, BEST CARD for a great figure in baseball history; Befriended Jackie Robinson in 1947 (pallbearer at Jackie's funeral), Gave up the Shot Heard Round the World in 1951, and was Bobby Valentine's father-in-law.
21. 1997 JT SNOW SF 1b 1e8/lefty bat 8R https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/2862/1690/1/90
22. 1930 Ed Morgan- 1B Cleveland; 47 doubles, 11 triples, 26 homers, 136 RBI's! Slashed .349/.413/.601, 3 game injury risk also led the league in strikeouts with only 66
23. 1995 MVP Barry Larkin- a more indicative card of what type of player Larkin really was (not a 30-HR guy). great all-around, great fielding .319/.394/.492 51 sb with only 5 times caught. MVP & Gold Glove. better BA & OBP vs R, better SLG vs L. I haven't seen the card but the splits would make me think its a R-1L type of card. Would probably be a slightly cheaper version than his bopper card and not as heavy leaning as his other options R-5L and R-3R
24. 1984 Dave Collins Toronto Blue Jays, LF. 60 stolen bases and 15 triples with a decent OBP. Speedy switch hitter with a Fifteen year career and no card! https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/832254/1680/1/80
25. 1941 Elmer Riddle CIN Leaue leading 19-4, League leading 2.24 ERA, 5th in MVP
26. 1905 Nick Altrock, White Sox LHSP 23-12 1.88 1.068 Career bests in Wins, ERA, H9. Near career bests in WHIP, HR9, SO9. No card.
27. 2003 Barry Zito OAK Throws-L BAL-1R END-S6* - More balanced and usable Zito card. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/90663/1700/1/120
28. 1995 Chad Curtis DET. Defense: cf-3(-1)e7 / lf-3e7 / rf-4e7 on his 90s card. A 5L platoon card effective vs LHP, with good OBP and some power, and able to cover several OF positions. Excellent speed. Bullet-proof. Curtis is a ten year vet with no card, and this is probably his most useful for ATG, especially if SOM prices it well. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/3064/1690/1/90
29. 1985 Greg A. Harris TEX. RH RP. BAL 2L. 1.04 WHIP. 113 IP, 111K. 2.47 ERA. Threw almost exclusively curves. Pitched LH and RH in a big league game. Great Middle/long relief back in the day. His switchy glove is in the HoF. Has one card in the set, a R2 for SD (same team as the other Greg Harris). This would likely be a 3R, due to 58 appearances. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/835009/1680/1/80
30. 1964 Larry Jackson, CHI-N, RH SP*, BAL 2R, 297 IP, 24-11, 3.14 ERA, 1.085 WHIP. A big season for a largely forgotten workhorse SP of the '60s. Low HR, very low walks, good hold, good defense, price probably in $5 to $6M range https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/35831/1660/1/60
31. 2001 Chipper Jones ATL 3B-4e20 LF-4(+1)e16 Bats S 3L - One of the very best seasons from one of the very best players of the 90s and 00s. A real all-time great! This card should be a cheaper alternative to his 1999 card and less injury-prone than his other two cards. 3B needs more additions to the set.
https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/583/1700/1/120
32. 2019 Anthony Rendon WAS 3B-1e13, bats R E. 3B can use more options, IMHO. Great year before he joined the Angeles to deal with Covid-19, the AL, injuries, and well...the Angeles karma. .319/.412/.598 slash line. 117 runs, 34 HRs, 126 RBI. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/91815/2019/1/2019
33. 1992 John Smoltz, ATL, 1R Balance, S7*, 2.85 ERA, 1.15 WHIP. Numerous Maddux and Glavine cards, good option for Hall of Famer https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/3370/1690/1/90
34. 1971 Al Downing, LHP Los Angeles. 20 wins, 2.68, 5R. We need a better Al Downing card. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/33188/1971/4/1971
35. 1951 Gil McDougald, NY Yankees, 2B and 3B, Rookie of the Year, .306, .396, .884, 14 HR
36. 2015 Nelson Cruz SEA rf-4(-1)e8. Appears to be his best card. .302/.369/.566, 159 OPS+, 44 HR. Currently has only one card, a cheap one from his Texas years. His best years were in Seattle and this card would be a significant upgrade. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/268/2015/1/2015
37. 2021 Josh Hader MIL LH RP only seven walks on the card, plus a lot better then previous card. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/93284/2021/1/2021
38. 1971 Danny Frisella NYM Throws-R BAL-8L END-R3 https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/34036/1971/4/1971
39 1947 Eddie Miller, CIN, SS His best season for power... led the league in doubles with 38 and had his personal best
in home runs with 19. As usual his fielding was great with a 1 rating.
40.1974 Dave Rader, SF, C Lefty hitter batted .435 against LP.
