A quick look at the 2012 Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs baseball cards

Since I got to see a Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs game earlier this year, I decided to order their 2012 team set. They’re available via the team website for $10, plus $5.95 shipping & handling (if you’re not ordering any other items).

The set includes 30 cards, produced by Choice SportsCards. Phillies fans will notice a number of players that have had to fill in on the major league club due to injuries, while Mets fans may notice Pat Misch and Raul Valdes, and everyone can appreciate a baseball card of Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg.

Here’s the checklist: 

  1. Phillippe Aumont
  2. Andres Blanco
  3. Dominic Brown
  4. Dave Bush
  5. Tyler Cloyd
  6. Tom Cochroan
  7. Jake Diekman
  8. Scott Elarton
  9. Mike Fontenot
  10. Kevin Frandsen
  11. Tuffy Gosewsich
  12. Jeremy Horst
  13. Austin Hyatt
  14. Erik Kratz
  15. Hector Luna
  16. Pat Misch
  17. Derrick Mitchell
  18. Cody Overbeck
  19. Scott Podsednick
  20. David Purcey
  21. B..J. Rosenberg
  22. Brian Sanches
  23. Michael Schwimer
  24. John Suomi
  25. Rich Thompson
  26. Raul Valdes
  27. Ryne Sandberg
  28. Sal Rende
  29. Rod Nichols
  30. Barbie Q

  1. Nice set. A LOT of recent major leaguers here. Purcey, Fransden, Fontenot, Elarton, Sanches, Posednick, Bush, Luna…not to mention Kratz, who has been on the Philly shuttle this year.

    OT, I know, but Ollie Perez is back in the majors. I seem to recall being one of the few who said he’d be back sooner or later.


    1. I hope Ollie makes the most of this opportunity – I don’t know how many more chances he’ll get. I want to see him pitch again. I think Seattle already played the Yankees in New York, so no return engagement is in his immediate future.
