John Kruk: 2006 SP Legendary Cuts

The 2006 SP Legendary Cuts card for John Kruk is a nice one. I like the sun rays/burst effect behind him. The name plate is a bit gaudy, but I do like the years he played for the club on the card. It's headstone-y but an interesting way to summarize the years of his career nonetheless. 

It makes me sad a bit that Kruk had just a ten-year baseball career but it could be that there was a lot about him that wasn't built for longevity. I love the 00's in his career stats: 

BA: .300
Games: 1200
HRs: 100

Just one double shy of 200. Ugh!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I wonder how many times he was thrown out trying to stretch a single into a double during his career. One more double would have been sweet!

  2. He's had a solid career on the field... and off the field.

  3. Such a cool set, of course most of those SP Cuts were.
