When I dreamt up the 25-Year-Old Baseball Cards series and took it to spring training last year, there was one dream: That a player could open up a pack of old baseball cards and pull his manager. It was a good dream, though a dream that never happened.
In this week’s episode, starring Dan Plesac, now an MLB Network analyst but before that a big leaguer for 18 years, we might have actually surpassed that dream. Plesac was playing in 1992, pitching for the Milwaukee Brewers. So it turns out, this episode is the first time a guest left with his own baseball card. It took a big trade, but it happened.
Plesac also pulled a slugger who hit one clear out of Milwaukee County Stadium against him and he gave us the story of how Shawon Dunston used to troll one of their teammates.
If you’re new to this series, the cards were originally purchased by my grandma back when everybody thought baseball cards would pay for college educations and first houses. That didn’t quite happen, but I’ve at least been able to turn some of the unopened baseball cards in my garage into a fun video series. And Plesac? He was extra fun.
