In the midst of sorting through those "Big Box of Baseball Cards" from my LCS, I came across this card.
"Hey, Cool! I remember Brien Taylor, next big thing, number 1 draft pick in 1991....bust"
Basically was the best prospect in baseball, got in a fight in North Carolina, jacked up his shoulder, out of baseball by 1995. Just imagine Andy Pettite as the second best lefty in the Yankee Dynasty years. Maybe that is a tad aggressive, but worth a "What If?"
At least worth a trip to my childhood boxes to see what I had, if any. Two more.
So, speaking of aggressive, I decided I was going to "off the mark" and acquire all of the Brien Taylor cards I could. Only 75 in total, that I could find listed on TradingCardDB.com
Quick, who had the best career here: Lindros, Maryland, Johnson or Taylor?
Here is just a sampling. More on their way!
I did buy a 100 card lot with dupes, if you are interested in some of these.
