BASEBALL'S BIG GUYS

by jdogg1228 - 59 cards (Last updated on Oct 17, 2021)



3. 2019 Topps #486 CC Sabathia


300 lbs.
YIKES!


5. 1977 Topps #30 Greg Luzinski


On the back, it says 225 lbs., but I think it is more than that.


6. 2002 Topps Chrome #125 Barry Bonds HR 73


Only says 228 here, but he used to be SO skinny and now he's just pure muscle. Yeah, that's what steroids do. Also, in later years he was listed at 240.


7. 2017 Topps Chrome - Prism Refractor #150 David Ortiz


230 lbs. but probably more than that.


8. 2019 Topps #NNO Vladimir Guerrero Jr.


Was: 200 lbs.
Now: 250 lbs.

His '71 OPC card says 250 and his '71 Dell stamp says 285 ... that was probably before and after breakfast.

You have one Orioles DH/1B, but could add another - Sam Horn. Here is listed at 250 - https://www.tcdb.com/ViewCard.cfm/sid/200/cid/93215/1992-Score-290-Sam-Horn

Almost any David Wells between, say 1997 and 1999. Cards list him at 225 but I feel like he was more than that, especially when he was battling gout.

I feel like Billy "country breakfast" Butler was a pretty big guy, too. Maybe around 250 if I'm not mistaken

1990's Rick Reuschel might qualify for the list.

thanks doogie_13 and grim25doogie_13, I was able to find cards of David Wells in his later years, (2007-2008) in which he was listed at 250 lbs. Billy Butler has been added as well. grim25, Rick Reuschel does qualify; he has been added.

Hey, how about Joba Chamberlain? I seem to remember him being a pretty big dude

Ah yes, now that I think about it I remember him being a big guy as well. Thanks for the reminder!

See, Nelson Cruz says he's 230. But, I find it hard to believe you don't put on any weight from 2015 to 2021. https://www.tcdb.com/ViewCard.cfm/sid/187868/cid/11877218/2018-Topps-Update---Gold-US182-Nelson-Cruz

Thanks for the suggestions, TwinKiller. I had no idea Phil Huges even weighed that much! You make a good point with Nelson Cruz too. (Both cards have been added now.)
