Green Cards

Happy Saint Patrick's Day everybody.

"Did somebody say Green Card?"

NO Gerard - get out of here. We're talking baseball cards that are green.

1991 Donruss series 2:

Topps Finest:

This Card:

Are there any good cards out there showing players in special Green St. Patrick's Day Uniforms? I'm assuming that the 1990s probably have some, somewhere...

UPDATE - hey, look at this awesome Saint Patrick's Day Card


Slainte!

For the traditionalists:

  1. Brian, There are a good bit of cards where the players are wearing green hats to commemorate St Pattys day. I wish that I had kept mine, they'd be cool to show today. One of the other things that I've done is pull Birthday players of the most common Holidays. But, I'm lazy and just have never scanned them. I might do that later tonight.

  3. Thanks for the link. I did a reverse box of National Treasures and discovered Boegarts, Pedroia, and Ortiz all have St Patrick's Day uniform relics inserted.

    1. That's pretty cool - I wonder if they will do something similar for 2015. . .

  4. There's a 1979 dodger blue card that shows Steve garvey wearing a green hat in spring training. I think john Franco has an upper deck card showing him in a green jersey.

    1. Right on - it seems to me that something featuring the St. Patrick's Day uniforms/hats would make a fun insert in the Opening Day sets.
