Card of the Day: 2008 Allen & Ginter Dustin Pedroia

08ginterpedroiaBig shout out to Dustin Pedroia today for being named the 2008 American League Most Valuable Player. Pedroia really had a fine season and carried the Red Sox when Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz and Mike Lowell were out with injuries. Pedroia offered both power and defense to a Sox team that all season was depleted by injuries and boneheadedness. Although the Sox season ended with less than a championship, the team would have been nowhere near the World Series had Pedroia not stepped up.

This is a hell of a start to the Sox second baseman’s career. First he was AL Rookie of the Year in 2007, and now 2008 AL MVP. He’s on his way to becoming one of the finest players to don a Boston uniform, and in many eyes has already become a Red Sox legend.

Today I highlight this fairly non-descript 2008 Topps Allen & Ginter Pedroia base card because I’ve already shared my prized Pedroia card, this 2007 topps card that was signed for me through the mail.
