Card of the Day: 1/14/16

2001 Fleer Focus #196 JD Drew

     If it seems like there is a recurring theme to our Throwback Thursdays, blame it on the card companies. In the early part of the 21st century, the companies capitalized as much as they could on the booming card market that resulted from insertion of autographed and game-used cards by producing as many sets as they could. Most of the sets had a checklist of 250 or 300 cards and as a result featured only a few players from each team. In the case of the Cardinals, those players were: Mark McGwire, Jim Edmonds, Fernando Tatis, JD Drew, and Ray Lankford. If you were really lucky, you could grab one of the various Rick Ankiel insert cards.
