Auto Collection: Edwin Jackson Bat Barrel

This guy had such promise when he first came up to the Dodgers in 2003. He had a wicked fastball, and with some time it could have developed into something special. I think, unfortunately, at 19 it was too soon. He often looked overwhelmed and ill-prepared. Eventually he was traded a few years later for Dany Baez.

Here is a 2004 Upper Deck Signature Barrel Sweet Spot card of Dodger hurler Edwin Jackson. I love the idea of putting a real piece of lumber in a Baseball card.
