The other "big" card was Jose Cruz, Jr. I did get one of those. I also got a Kris Benson and living an hour south of Pittsburgh, it was a good card to have. I despised Benson, though. Why? I remember the West Virginia baseball team having to play Clemson in a best-of-three series to get to the College World Series. Clemson's top two pitchers were Benson and Billy Koch. Needless to say, Clemson ended the series in two games. That is what I will always remember Benson for.
Since I only paid a dime for this card, I might set it ablaze. Probably with the Ryan Kalish cards I purchased for the same reason.
