Featured Card: 5×7 Photo. Never experiencing huge professional success and not playing his Heisman caliber college career for a national powerhouse, Terry Baker was never included in a major football card set from his era, and therefore does not have an official rookie card. Photos can be a simple alternative for Baker and other similar college stars. If you would prefer to stick with standard trading cards, there are a few legends- and Heisman-themed sets that have included Baker. Copies of those cards can generally be found for $1-$5.
