Card of the Day: Ricky Williams 1999 PowerDeck RC

What If Ricky Stayed In Baseball?

Do you think Ricky Williams career and reputation would be different if he would have decided to stay in baseball?  Back in 1999 Williams was the greatest thing since sliced bread.  His cards were off the wall and collectors would do anything to get a rookie card of his.  I bet there are a lot of people that forgot that Williams played minor league baseball in the Phillies system before getting drafted by the Saints.  Some of his most popular rookie cards such as the 1999 Playoff Contenders Auto and 1999 UD SPx Auto were bringing in tons of money.  Today for some crazy reason those two cards and a few others have heated up again because he has returned to the NFL.  I think it would have been interesting to see how he would have ended up if he would have stayed with the Batavia Muckdogs.  In 1999 I was only three or four years into collecting and thought it was cool to have a player with a baseball and football rookie card.
