Holding On to Piazza’s Stint With Marlins – NYTimes.com

Yet for Jerry Dworkin, 59, and Chris Fernandez, 25, there is no greater thrill than finding one of the more than 120 Piazza Marlins cards issued from 1998 to 2005.

“I can’t deny it is obscure,” said Dworkin, who lives in Irvine, Calif., and admitted to spending five figures to accumulate more than 100 cards. “I’m not a baseball expert. I’m just a run-of-the-mill guy who got caught up in the oddity of the situation, someone as great as Mike Piazza being on a team for just five games.”
