Rookie Card Showcase: 1995 Bowman Chris Carpenter

Who would have thought this guy would be a CY Young Award winner?

This is why I keep ALL prospect and rookie cards -- you just never know.

I’m going to double-dip today with Cardinals pitchers because I wanted to show some respect to a card that spent a lot of time in a common box but managed to stay mint long enough for me to unearth it.

Here we’ve got the 1995 Bowman Chris Carpenter rookie. It’s not a highly valuable card, but it’s refreshing to find these “older” obscure rookies of some of today’s best players.

I think I only purchased two or three 1995 Bowman packs and I managed to pull a Vlad Guerrero. Unbeknownst to me, I also pulled a rookie card of a future CY Young Award winner.
