How about:

Isao Harimoto - Japan's all-time hits leaders (and atom bomb survivor)
The Alou Brothers (they can share a card)
A card about players who actually saw combat in WWII (Spahn, etc.)
Mark Fidrych (he can be pictured talking to a baseball)
Considering Joe Di'maggio has one more vote than Darryl Strawberry and Greg Maddux is apparently competing with Robin Roberts, I think your idea might be a winner!

I vote Munson and Michael Jordan.

Frank Thomas; Steve Trout; Ken Griffey Jr.; Rickey Henderson;
Willie Mays; Warren Spahn; Jim Abbott; Hank Aaron; Roger Maris

My two cents-

Paige- technically debuted in the major leagues after the cut-off
Carlton, Ryan, Maddux- crafty, power, and finesse
Rickey Henderson- an all time great, and an oddball
Pee Wee Reese- On and off the field a great person and player
Richie Ashburn- one of my all time favorites
Reggie Jackson- power player and clutch
Winfield- all around great athlete and brought leadership to teams
Jeter- again, played in the spotlight with class and skill
Ichiro- still underrated, could hit anything at any time, speed, and fielding
Ken Griffey, Jr.- great during his time even when injuries took him
Cal Ripken, Jr.- ironman, tough, good glove, good bat, good brains
Koufax and Drysdale- both great
Ozzie Smith- brought flair back to the game, great fielder, decent hitter, fun
Bob Feller- nice guy, would sign and talk to anyone, oh, and he could pitch too!
Mike Schmidt- one of the greatest 3rd basemen ever.

Mickey Hatcher- determination, tough, and funny. And one of the best baseball quotes of all time..."I would rather be the worst player in the major leagues, than not be in the major leagues at all."

There are others...but my first thoughts.

I was thinking the same thing, in addition to many others on the list. But hey, we all like who we like. I would have thought someone else would have mentioned Gwynn before Vince Coleman, Ron Cey, Marquis Grissom, etc...

I hesitate to further disappoint you, but the Grissom on my list was Marv, not Marquis. Willie Mays knows him, if you don’t.

I heartily endorse Mr. Gwynn as well.
