From the Pedro Binder

2000 Stadium Club Chrome

What a fantastic looking card. In fact, it’s such a great looking card, it’s too bad they covered it in chrome.

I always loved Stadium Club, because it focused on the pictures. It didn’t need to fancy them up with crazy borders. They needed to put some information on the card front, obviously. But, they tried to do it as unobtrusively as possible. In this case, there’s a simple pennant floating on the picture telling you this is a Pedro card.

The picture itself is a fantastic shot, and a great use of the horizontal format. This is Pedro, coming off what might have been the best season by a pitcher ever, getting ready to fire one in there. Look at that face. The batter doesn’t stand a chance.

Just like every batter facing Pedro.
