Curtis Granderson grew up in Chicago, but as a kid found himself rooting for the Atlanta Braves rather than the Cubs or the White Sox because TBS was pretty powerful back in those days. It helped that the Braves didn’t get in the way of “Saved By the Bell.”
On this week’s 25-Year-Old Baseball Cards, we talk to the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder about his childhood baseball interests, while finding a few baseball guys from the ’90s he knows. Most notably, Granderson finds the player he thinks is the greatest of all time. How’s that for a tease? When it comes time to make a trade, we see the power of TWO Joe Carters, which was quite a bit of power in 1992, the years our cards were from.
If you’re new to this series, we’re glad to have you now. We open old baseball cards with baseball players, coaches and famous fans. The cards used to belong to my grandma, who bought them when she and I collected cards together when I was young. They’re not worth anything now, but they sure do produce some good stories. You can read more about the series here and check out plenty of our previous videos below.
