Featured custom card: 1990 Score McDonald's Brett Wallace

Brett Wallace is a slick hitting, particularly rotund prospect - who was recently traded from the Oakland Athletics to the Toronto Blue Jays for outfielder Michael Taylor.

Wallace was the key piece acquired from the St. Louis Cardinals in the Matt Holliday trade last July - but apparently Oakland's front office conceded Wallace was a guy who realistically has no shot at sticking at third base and was a future first baseman/designated hitter type.

However, it seems like a make or break year for Oakland first baseman Daric Barton to stick in the Major Leagues next year - with top prospect Chris Carter coming up from the minor leagues sooner than later.

I like the 1990 Score McDonald's because it is an oddball card - right now, I'm just trying to get the ball rolling and generate different 'make believe' trading cards of various players, so I can sharpen my skills.
