2012 Topps Heritage High Number Rockies Team Set
How about guys like Tyler Colvin who played in 136 games for the the Rockies with 18 home runs, 72 RBI and a .290 average but did not get a card in 2012. D.J. LeMahieu played in 81 games for the Rockies, hitting for a .297 average with solid defense. Maybe one of the "piggyback" relievers like Josh Roenicke who tossed 88 2/3 innings over 63 games, Adam Ottavino who went 5-1 over 53 games or Carlos Torres who pitched in 31 games. Even Andrew Brown, a part timer who hit 5 home runs over 46 games would have been a better Rockies representative than Jamie Moyer. None of these players got cards, but Jamie Moyer gets 4 base cards over 3 sets 5 months after being released.
