1994 Topps Signature Rookies #61 AJ Pierzynski
This is the game that Pierzynski is here for. He may be an annoying guy with a rough reputation but when it became apparent earlier this season that Molina may be questionable down the stretch the Cardinals went out and got AJ.
That looks like a smart move today. Veteran leadership likely matters at catcher more than any other position.

Pierzynski's red gear makes him look like a Cardinal here, but it is from a different squad. This 20 year old card is from early in AJs career when he was still in the Twins organization.

The honor of the #1 card went to Josh Booty who was featured along with brother John David Booty QB (USC) on MLB networks "The Next Knuckler"
