Let me start by giving a hat-tip to The Diamond King for coming up with such a great idea for a post. Well done! This one took more thought than I originally anticipated. There were some close battles and some of my longtime collecting favorites wound up on the outside looking in: Jake Arrieta, Bo Jackson, Greg Maddux, Jackie Robinson and Ron Santo.
For my version of the A to Z Favorite Player Challenge I decided to only use pictures of cards which had previously been used within another blog post. Overall, this plan worked out to perfection except for the the letter U, which is not a card, and Y, which I swiped from the internet because it was quicker than retrieving it from one of my player collection binders.
Without further hesitation, here are my favorite players!
Jim Abbott - What a great story! I enjoyed collecting his cards as a kid and reading about his life as an adult.
David Ross - The storyline of the player known as Grandpa Rossy will always be one of my favorites from the 2016 season.
