#394 - 1984 United States Baseball Team: Bob Caffrey

What a card: Sadly, Bob Caffrey never made the major leagues, meaning 3 of the first 5 players in this subset didn't play in the majors. Caffrey made it as high as Double A in the Expos organization in 1988.

My observation on the front: The Rawlings duffle bag is giving me flashbacks to high school.

More opinion from me: Caffrey looks like he's going to cry. Come on! Your career isn't over yet!

Something you might know: Caffrey played on the national champion Cal State-Fullerton team in 1984. He was a backup catcher on the U.S. Olympic team.

Something you might not know: Caffrey's daughter, Jenna, was a standout hurdler for Burlington High School in Iowa and at Iowa State. She won the Drake Relays in the 100-meter hurdles three times while in high school.

My observation on the back: Caffrey was practically baseball-stalking Tim Wallach at this point. First breaking his home run record and then getting drafted by the same team.

The blog wants to speak now: The Movies category is updated.

Never knew this card mentioned Wallach on the back (or that Caffrey broke his Titans HR record).

I guess that's what I get for letting sets sit mostly complete for three decades.
