Card: #8 Mark Batten

“ This card looks bushleague ” -Bargunmaster

“ Love minor league cards! ” -carthage44

“ Ah almost vintage/ 1980s vintage Minor League card set. Looks like Mr. Batten never made the Majors and this was his last year in the Mariners farm system. ” -captkirk42

“ I hate minor league cards. Yes Mark, even yours. I have a box full; anybody want them? ” -cnangle

“ Photo Fact Card? His name, position, team, league, and hometown. Wow, such interesting facts. TCMA produced some of the most boring cards. They must have gotten a great deal on black ink. I hope the red ink didn't bankrupt them. ” -C2Cigars

“ I'll take it. I never collected minor league cards, but there is always something nice about seeing them on the RCOTD. ” -muskie027

“ I'm assuming the low budget resulted in the lack of information on the front and back. Surely you go this far in providing a product that you don't forget the basics in sports cards. ” -Sportzcommish

I love minor league cards as well cnangle!  I always find it fun trying to guess who will make it and who won't!

I also love minor league. Some of the "newer" sets (last couple of decades) have better designs than most MLB sets!  It's always interesting to look at these sets because it makes you realize how hard it is to make it to the majors. Most don't - maybe one or two per team on the average.

I like them too.


Will trade for vintage and current Pittsburgh Pirates, Pirates certified and TTM/IP autos, '70s food issues and oddballs, 1979-80 Topps and OPC hockey, vintage basketball and soccer, and other randomosities.

I love minor league cards.. I've just never lived in an area (aside from a couple years when the Whiskey Jacks were around) that minor league baseball existed.
