Admittedly I'm not the biggest baseball fan, but I did grow up idolizing Nolan Ryan. So, this card is automatically pretty sweet to me. Also, while I have heard of Michael Young and know he's a pretty good baseball player, I've never heard of Thomas Diamond. That kind of ruins the card, for me. I'm not a fan of multi-player cards for this exact reason. Unless it's a card of retired guys who played together with a specific team, they just usually don't make any sense 5 years from their production date. Now you have a card of Nolan Ryan, one of baseball's greats, and some no-name guy. To top it off, there's also a guy on there who I would call pretty good, at best, in Michael Young.

So, yeah, Nolan Ryan and Michael Young with a whozit.
I understand the concept of the card (past, present, future), but it does lose a little appeal when the "future" does not turn out. Anyway, it has Ryan's auto so it is an AWESOME card! I would definitely be interested but I am sure that I could not afford the asking price.
Diamond who Now? But when the card was released he was a promising prospect. If he would have devoloped then the card would be AWESOME.
Remember Brien Taylor?
