Opening 25-Year-Old Baseball Cards with Jack Morris

Jack Morris won a lot in his day. The big righty played on four World Series winners, including the famous 1991 World Series when his Minnesota Twins beat the Atlanta Braves and he won the MVP. Nobody’s forgotten about his masterful 10-inning performance in Game 7, which sealed the series for the Twins. It’s the thing of legends.

In all, Morris won 254 games over 18 seasons in the big leagues. That means he bested the other legends of his time on more than a few occasions. So when Morris — now an analyst for — joined us for this week’s episode of 25-Year-Old Baseball Cards and pulled two great players from his era, Bo Jackson and Tony Gwynn, he busted out his bragging rights. Not many people can call “scoreboard” on both Bo Jackson and Tony Gwynn, but Jack Morris did.

We filmed this at the very busy MLB Fan Fest at All-Star week, so don’t mind that marching band you hear walking by. It didn’t take our attention off the 1992 Donruss we were opening.

If you’re new to this series and you love it, good news. There are plenty of great episodes to check out below. We started this with baseball cards that were in my garage, unopened from the days I used to collect with my grandma. She saved all the cards, thinking they’d be worth some money in the future. Twenty-five years later? Not quite. But they do inspire good stories when we open them with baseball players and famous fans.
