Baseball is based on history, both good and bad. In many ways, the sport traces itself along the arc of American society. Out of the Park Baseball 20’s newest Perfect Team card collection is a unique set, comprising players whose career overlap at the point of one player retiring as a new one debuts. Starting in 1890 with the debut of Kid Nichols and ending in 2019 with the retirement of Brian McCann, it’s a wonderful way to look across the spectrum of our favorite sport!
