eBay Wins #163

Another day, another eBay penny card. Today it's a play who retired as a Cardinal, Larry Walker.

1994 Upper Deck #370 Larry Walker
For some reason, the Cardinals fan base loves when we bring in once-great players in their career twilights. Will Clark, Bobby Bonilla, Lance Berkman (though he eventually played elsewhere), and Larry Walker all received warm welcomes and huge cheers, despite production that wasn't quite at the levels they reached at their career peaks. Since it was a salary dump by Colorado, the biggest player the Cardinals gave up for Walker was Chris Narveson, who would subsequently be traded to Boston, waived, and ultimately reclaimed by St. Louis, where he made his major league debut in 2006, the year after Walker last played.
