Players being interviewed

I imagine that baseball players, at least the better ones, spend more time than they want being interviewed. Here are some cards of players talking to the press (or maybe just the team's broadcast team).

1995 Collector’s Choice Special Edition #151
On his baseball cards, John Franco always looks like a guy who is always having a good time. Here I imagine he's talking to the broadcast team during a game.

1993 Upper Deck #35 Kirby Puckett
Puckett looking quite humble probably after he won a game single-handedly.

1989 Upper Deck #515 David Palmer
 Palmer looks like he's giving a pregame radio interview in his pajamas.

2010 Topps History of the World Series Paul Molitor
Paul Molitor, just before getting a bottle of champagne poured on his head.

1998 Skybox Dugout Axcess #35 Curt Schilling
Curt Schilling probably not expounding on his theory of evolution.

2007 Upper Deck #186 Barry Zito
Barry Zito surrounded by reporters.

2013 Topps #568 Steve Lombardozzi
I imagine the interviewer loves it when sort of thing happens.

2005 Upper Deck ESPN #2 Troy Glaus
Troy looking quite relaxed in what appears to be a pregame interview. Saying things like "We've got a good ball club", and "We just have to take each game as it comes".
