2010 National League All-Star Baseball Card Guide

2010 National League All-Star Baseball Card Guide

Below we look at 2 cards from each member of the 2010 National League All-Star Team. The first card is a recommended "True RC" for the player, while the second is a "Recommended Non-True RC". For the "Non-True RC" we tried to find a great card that either came close to the player's Rookie Year or was made during the players Rookie Season but didn't qualify because it wasn't part of the base set.
