*Note: I had previously assigned Incaviglia and Carter to the wrong teams - obviously, the sun got to me. Those have been fixed. Thanks to Buckstore Cards for the heads up!
**Note: Cards were scanned at 100dpi, so they may seem a bit fuzzy.


  1. You've got a couple errors with Big, Incavigla is a Ranger, Carter is a Met.
