1982 Topps – Scott Podsednik
Scott served two tours of duty with the White Sox. He was part of the deal that sent Carlos Lee to the Brewers before the 2005 season. At the time I couldn’t believe that the Sox had gotten rid of Carlos. Who was this little outfielder they got to replace him? Scott quickly endeared himself to Sox fans by stealing bases at a record pace. He injured himself before he could set any Sox stolen base records that season, but did help the team get off to a great start. After leaving the Sox for greener pastures he found himself on hard times. He signed a minor league deal in 2009, and quickly was helping the Sox again.
This picture was taken in 2009 as Scott was taking a lead off of third. When I saw the picture while going through some older ones I thought that it would be perfect on a card. I like the design of the 1982 Topps card, and it gives me a chance to make an in action card of Scott as well.
