Fogg only had a couple of certified autos during his playing days so this is a welcomed addition to the collection. While Fogg was not a very successful pitcher during his playing days I do have fond memories of watching him play when I was at my peak of attending games. Looking back at his numbers you have to wonder how he was able to stay in the league for so many seasons. I guess durability and the ability to eat innings pays off when you are on bad teams.
You have to wonder if Doumit was coming through the Pirates system now they would have caught onto this and made him an outfielder early on in his career. He was a switch hitter and had enormous power. His numbers could have easily projected out to 25-30 homers in a season. As a catcher he was always banged up, and of course the plate appearances are hampered by the regular days off needed to stay fresh. Hindsight is 20/20.
As far as I know Doumit only had one certified auto so his autos are not easy to come by. Great looking card.
Thanks for the great cards Tom! I'm still liking my prediction that the Central will get both wild cards. It has been fun watching the Cubs this year. Nice to see the Buccos finally hitting their stride too.
Thanks for reading.
