Player: Magglio Ordonez

Company / Set: 200 Upper Deck SPx Baseball

Serial Number: N/A

Card Number: FF-MG

Why is it in my personal collection?: I only like jersey cards with pinstripes or patches.  This one is rather plain, but it has two pieces and one is a pinstripe.  I also bought this because I’m an Ordonez fan. He’s been counted out so many times in his career, but in the end he’s usually a 0.300 / 25 / 100 guy.  He’s not a Hall of Famer by any stretch of the imagination, but over the course of 15 years he has carved out a great career and is one of the few players that can say that he played great for two teams.

Where did I get this card?:  From a local card shop in Hampton, VA

Price: $3

Would I buy other cards in this set?: I’m on the fence about it.  I am really not a fan of the set itself, so it would have to be player specific.

Card Rating from 1-100: 43

What is your take on Ordonez and the card itself?

    I lost complete respect for him when he wouldn’t take a deferred payment salary structure to stay with the Sox. As he put it, “If I’m playing now, I’m going to be payed now.” Hated him ever since…

    Nice card! I’m pretty sure I saw it a couple of times at the same shop!

    I feel like the jerseys on this card should be reversed. Have the Tigers ever worn a pinstripe? I know they have the piping but that’s a pinstripe on the card. I think the Sox have worn them but I’m not sure if that was when he was there.
