A place where Colorado Rockies baseball card collectors (all 3 of us) can waste some time reading about our favorite sport. The Rockies and their cards will be the primary focus, but I like to go off on tangents as well so anything and everything baseball related may be covered here.

2014 Quarry Unlimited - #30 Arizona Diamondbacks Part 2





My Top 5 Diamondbacks Cards
1. Eric Chavez (purple)
2. Nick Ahmed (rookie prospects)
3. Chris Owings (yellow)
4. Cliff Pennington (red)
5. Andy Marte (green)

It's a shame that the final team on the Quarry Unlimited countdown is arguably the most boring team set in the whole countdown.  I apologize for that, but it is what it is.  The Chavez is a decent choice at #1, both for the cool angle at third base and the fact that Chavez retired mid-season so this is his sunset issue.  #'s 2, 3, and 4 are all different images of double plays.  I like the Ahmed the best due to the side angle and the "all-dirt" look.  The Owings is a very similar shot except from a front angle.  Owings hanging onto the ball hurts the look just a bit.  The Pennington has another unique look.  Perhaps, Pennington could take some lessons from the other two on leaping over the runner though.  I was really struggling to find #5, but I went with former top prospect Andy Marte.  He was a big time "can't miss" Braves prospect that missed badly.  He hadn't played in the majors since 2010, but I felt it was worth it to acknowledge his comeback attempt.
