Controverstial Cards we will never see

SDS

I posted this somewhere else, but the post got me thinking.

What cards would you like to see in the game but for outside of baseball reasons we know we will never see.
This is a serious question and a great conversation to have.
I will start with the biggest POS and a dude that should never be in the game but would have one heck of a card.
This is not an endorsement of the player or his beliefs, this is purely based on his on field exploits.

1999 PS John Rocker
That guy was so clutch that postseason. I remember his epic ABs vs Mike Piazza. That NLCS was one of the best performances by a reliever I have ever seen in the playoffs.

I looked up his #'s from that postseason and they were even better than what I remembered.

Bonds.

He'd deserve somehow 130 power.

SDS

Raul Mondesi
Pete Rose
Strawberry (sorry guys it's not happening)
Chuck Knoblock
Josh Hamilton
Lenny Dykstra
Kirby Puckett
Roger Clemens

And of course Barry Bonds

SDS

I really don’t get why any of the steroid era guys aren’t in it but yet Jason Giambi is and has been for a few years now

Bonds would be in the game if not for his unwillingness to come to an agreement with SDS.
We have plenty of PED users in the game already.

I would like to see a Lance Berkman card, but he made some controversial remarks about transgender people using women's restrooms.

SDS

i'd certainly love a Curt Schilling Sig card......likely won't ever happen.

I would ad Curt Schilling to the list too. Great pitcher, absolute C U next tuesday of a person. I like that you didn’t throw Sosa/McGwire in here because personally I think all the steroid users have a chance to get in apart from Bonds and Clemens

Barry was the best ped user, best non ped user that ever played this game, Barry started using "peds" cause he saw everyone else doing it and getting acclaim and he knew those getting "ped" acclaim were complete scrubs compared to him so he figured, why shouldn't I- everyone else is doing it, lying and getting paid. with or without "peds" Barry Bonds is the greatest to ever play the game if you can't understand that you obviously didn't live in his era so please shush.

I agree Bonds was the best player in Baseball BEFORE Roids.
Was he the best ever? That is subjective. I like to say that he was the best player I have ever seen.
It has never been close, but Mike Trout is starting to make an arguement for that title.

um no dude, rocker had a couple good years that's it- braves didn't even win '99 series against yanks, I'd rather have mark "the bird" fidirich (apologies if I spelled that wrong), Mitch Williams, heck id take thad bosely over rocker and bosely was a career pinch hitter- rocker is a douche- Hank Aaron walked away from his conversation with rocker regarding his si comments rolling his eyes cause rocker is a complete ignorant person, rockers career died after '99 and it should remain dead.

I'd love a Jose Canseco card

I never said Rocker should get a Prime or SS card. But that Post season he was untouchable.
And I know he is a POS, I even mentioned it several times in my opening post. The purpose of this post was to discuss cards that will never be in the game because of off the field stuff.
On the field, especailly in the 99 post season Rocker was a beast. The Yanks beat the Braves, but it wasn't b/c Rocker didn't do his job.

if rocker were ever to see the light of day in this game it would only show sds is racist and homophobic, rocker is a douche.

Yeah Rocker is a douche, that isn't up for debate.
But having a player in the game is not an endorsement of their beliefs.
