2012 Redsfest: Chris Welsh
Chris Welsh only spent one season in a Cincinnati uniform, but he has become an extremely popular broadcaster for the Reds. He has actually been calling games since 1993, which kind of blows my mind. I had no idea he had been in the booth for that long. I actually enjoy Welsh; he’s no Joe Nuxhall, but he gives an insider’s insight to the game in a non-annoying way (very much the antithesis of Jeff Brantley).
I would love to get the entire 1986 Texas Gold set signed, but that will be impossible for two reasons: Pete Rose has three cards in the set and is way too expensive, and Bo Diaz has passed away (RIP). For a stadium giveaway, the 1986 Texas Gold set is very nice and clean and has some decent photos, especially for the time period.
