'25-Year-Old Baseball Cards': The best guests of 2017 (Part 1)

Big League Stew

One of my favorite things about our “25-Year-Old Baseball Cards” video series is how people are often trying to decide which episode is the best episode. We’ve had some great ones.

So with 2017 coming to end, we thought it was the perfect time to rank our favorite guests of the year. We put out 38 original episodes this year (you can find them all linked at the bottom of this post) and they’re all pretty great in different ways. But there are some that always come up in those “the episode with ______ is the best” conversations.

This week and next, we’ll be counting down the top 10 guests on the show, starting with No. 10 through 6 in the video above. Next week, we’ll hit you with the top five.

If you’re just coming across this series, we open baseball cards from 25 years ago with baseball coaches, players and fans. The cards were bought by my grandma back in the day. Like a lot of people, she thought they’d be worth a lot by now. But they’re not, so we open them up with baseball people and look for great stories/memories. Here’s a full rundown of our previous episodes, watch a few.
