The first I think is Blum #27 for the astros, although it looks a lot like carlos lee but the #'s dont match... second one I'm not sure

Carlos Lee is the 1st one.

The second I thought of Derek Lee, but he dosn't play 2B so...

thats the problem with these damn things. I still have my one I can't figure out from my case and thus was never able to move it.. I know it is an astro but I wish they would have put a name on the back.. this is horsecrap if you ask me they arent very good sketches if we can tell who they are..

The 2nd one -- the 2B doesn't appear to be position (i've seen another by this artist with a 4B) -- I took the logo on the hat to be Cincinatti...

The 1st one I suppose could be Kemp -- but the logo on the front sure looks like Astros to me...

The script on the chest says "Los Angeles." You can just barely see the "g" crossing below the line.



The right card is definitely Santana. It's the "TC" Twins cap.

so it is Kemp and Santana, but do agree the sketch cards are not top quality...will be interesting to see if they do away with the sketch cards......I would not miss them. I have a Chipper Jones sketch which is fairly good but most of them are fair at best IMO.

I ended up with 5 sketch cards. David Wright and Ryan Zimmeran in pencil -- both very good in my uneducated opinion. I can't recall the 5th sketch off-hand...

Oh! Russell Martin -- another good one.
