2011 Chachi Super Veteran #1 Jamie Moyer
Strangely enough, the guy that gave me the most trouble was Ben Francisco. There just aren't that many good pictures out there of the team's new regular right fielder. I actually ended up scanning in a picture from last year's NLCS Program to use for Francisco's card.
Featured here is the first of hopefully many 2011 Chachi Super Veteran cards, featuring the ageless wonder himself, Jamie Moyer. I used the picture from Moyer's 1987 Topps rookie card for the "then" side of the card. Moyer was recently hired to work the night shift of ESPN's Baseball Tonight while he recovers from Tommy John surgery. He makes no bones about the fact he fully intends to make a comeback in the spring of 2012, at the age of 49. Super veteran, indeed.
