East Brunswick High School graduate Carl Thomore has been playing baseball for almost all of his life, and when he was drafted by the Colorado Rockies as the 77th pick in the Major League Baseball draft in June 2011, years of blood, sweat and tears finally paid off.
But to make his professional debut official, he had to have a Rookie baseball card. Here’s one, but you can find dozens for sale on eBay. Show your support for Carl by picking one up if you have a chance.
The Subway card above one above shows Carl as a member of the Rockies’ minor league team, Grand Junction Rockies, and was furnished by Carl’s father, Ken Thomore. Here’s what it says on the back:
Rockies Ramblings: Hit .192 (30x156) with 3 home runs and 25 RBI for Casper in 2011…2nd round draft choice oiut of East Brunswick HS in East Brunswick, NJ, where he hit .493 with 3 hoers and stole 25 bases his senior year.
The 2012 season saw Carl recovering from a hamstring injury, but he turned it on at the end of the season.
