RLC Custom Card Project: Kit Pellow

The Rockies career of Kit Pellow was short, 70 games over two seasons, but he will forever be the answer to a couple trivia questions. Who was the Rockies opening day left fielder in 2004 (he went 0-4 with 2 strikeouts and was replaced in a double switch), and who broke up Tom Glavine's no-hitter with 2 outs in the 8th in May 2004. Kit did show some versatility at the bottom of the roster, playing 5 different positions, including catching, but his .240 average and a couple homers was not enough to keep him in the league as his 2004 season in Colorado was his last.

The card: A subtle tweak to 1993 Bowman, and the upcoming 2021 Bowman Heritage, not full bleed, but lots of room for the photo. The logo didn't really fit so we ended up with a very Donruss-y look instead.

  1. I remember Kit when he was selected for the Midwest League All-Star when he was a member of the Lansing Lugnuts.
