10 centerrific! Cards with kids Edition

1992 Upper Deck Fred McGriff Homerun Heroes

You know how some bloggers collect cards of something other than their favorite player and or team?  Like cards with cups in the picture, or American Flags, or facial hair.  A themed I've always thought was cool was cards with kids.  Being a parent of 2 this appeals to me more now than ever before. 

I ran across this 1992 Upper Deck Homerun Heroes cards of Fred McGriff in the dime box at the LCS and quickly added it to my pile.  Now the question I ask is this McGriff's son or was he just making for a great baseball card?

I've got a few more cards that fit this new theme of mine and if I can ever unearth them, I'll get them scanned and shared here alongside Fred.


  1. I'm also a big fan of cards like this, and have two kids of my own. I only have a few "cards with kids", but they're all in the same page in a binder. This McGriff would be #2 on my short list. Can't wait to see what else you've got!

  2. That's a really sweet find, Colbey.
    I'm definitely a bearded player collector, but I also really appreciate those cards that make obvious a players good, kind character. What could possibly do that better than them with their kids or kids of others, fans, etc.
    While I don't (yet) have any children of my own as you and Backstop (and I'm sure, so many other bloggers) do, I have plenty of family and friends with little one's and frankly, if all this isn't for them, in the long run, then I'm more confused about sports and our hobby than I thought!
    Great, sweet card.
