The journeyman reliever with the Hall-of-Fame baseball-card collection

Pat Neshek has the highest graded 1970 Topps set of anyone.

Neshek says he loves learning about baseball history by studying the statistics, cartoons and biographies on the backs of the cards. He says many major leaguers are well versed in baseball history via collecting baseball cards and other memorabilia like autographs, jerseys, hats and, in the case of his Phillies teammate Howie Kendrick, 1960s bobble-head dolls.
