The Player

The story of Dustin Pedroia, the second baseman of the Boston Red Sox, is just beginning. Since his debut in 2006, Dustin has been picked for the All Star team three times, won a silver slugger, has won a World Series, won two gold gloves and the 200\ Rookie of the Year and 2008 AL MVP, which is why he makes this list. He is an example of what happens when someone wants their dream so bad, they do not listen to those who say they can’t make it because they are not good enough. Even though he is only five foot eight, and not exactly what the scouts were looking for, he made himself a star.

The Set

This is from the 2010 Allen and Ginter set, which is a retro design from the 1880’s. It is a basic set for this time period, including inserts and autographed cards.

The back

The back of this card was designed to look like a card from the 1800’s, so everything is written out, including stats and date of birth.
