One of 10,000 Mackey Sassers



In case you missed it a few months ago ESPN did a 30 For 30 short documentary called "Fields of Fear" on Mackey Sasser and his problems throwing the baseball back to the pitcher after receiving the pitch. It's a really interesting watch and one that seems to actually help Sasser conquer his fear.

Above you'll see Mackey's 1993 Topps Gold card as well as the Florida Marlin's stamped version. You may remember those stamped cards are from one of 10,000 factory sets made especially to be sold at the Marlins stadium. The Rockies have their own stamped sets as well and I enjoy these cards because it gives you a chance to get a limited run card in the middle of the junk wax card era.
