2009 TriStar Obak #1 Pedro Alvarez

For tonight's playoff posting we take a look at the Obak product that Tristar revived in 2009.

2009 TriStar Obak #1 Pedro Alvarez

In a nod to Upper Deck's inaugural set (1989) Tristar put a bunch of minor league prospects at the top of their debut Obak offering with Pedro Alvarez getting the honored with the #1 slot. Alvarez will likely never be Ken Griffey Jr, but this season he lead the NL in Home Runs with 36 (however he batted only .233 - His 186 Ks also led the league)

I've been delinquent in following anything but the Dodgers this year. I knew Alvarez led the league in homers, but when I saw his total strikeouts and batting average for the first time yesterday, I nearly said out loud:

"He's almost Dave Kingman!"
