Opening 25-year-old baseball cards with Alex Rodriguez

When we started the “Opening 25-Year-Old Baseball Cards” video series, I never expected I’d be ripping into wax packs with Alex Rodriguez, but here we are.

A-Rod retired this season and is now a postseason analyst at Fox Sports, sharing his baseball knowledge during the MLB on Fox pre and postgame shows. If you watch the show, it’s obvious that A-Rod knows a ton about the game.

He also knows a lot about the players in our 1991 Donruss packs, including one famous ex-teammate, an ex-coach of his and one of his favorite shortstops when he was growing up.

If you’re new to this series (hi, thanks for watching), here’s the requisite backstory: My grandma and I collected baseball cards together when I was a kid. She had these cards from 1991 stashed away and I recently discovered them. They’re basically worthless, but opening them with baseball players and baseball people has been a lot of fun.
