    Great pairings

    There have been a million cards made that feature 2 players on the same card. The Topps Stadium-Club Cosigners set that began back in the 90's was one of the first "chase cards" for me.

    Often the players paired have very little to do with each other, but occasionally certain pairs come along that belong together.

    In the pickup thread, @bigalbert posted a Machado/Ripken dual autograph card he picked up which of course pairs the past and present of the Orioles, both players on the left side of the infield etc.

    Which other pairs that include players playing today would be epic (it is ok if they've been featured on a card together already).

    These are the ones I came up with:

    Kershaw/Koufax - the comparisons are constant and deserved. Both dominant lefty pitchers, both class acts, and both of course pitch for the Dodgers
    Machado/Ripken (mentioned above)
    Trout/Harper - Both generational players whose careers have been compared from day 1. Different personalities, but each is a mega-star and can change the image of baseball for the next 15 years
    Chris Sale/Pedro Martinez - Maybe a little early, but each came to Boston and struck out everyone around

    Who do you have?

    Junior/Mays

    We've had Junior/Mantle but I like that duo a little better.

    For players who are no longer active, Griffey/Musial is the most interesting Griffey duo for me. Both were born in Donora, PA born on November 21.

    The bonds/Mays passing the torch duo is fantastic, their all around game and personal connection makes it incredible

    Put it in the waaaay to early category, devers/boggs.

    How about verlander/newhouser. I don't follow the tigers that close, maybe it's been done but two pitchers who won MVPs for the same team is pretty rare

    I'd fall apart if I could see a very well done 6 player rice/Lynn/Evans with Benintendi/Bradley/betts

    I'll keep it as 2 pairing matchups to avoid a cluster of small autos / pics... (Yes, some have been done before) And obviously people who are alive. Some of these you could mix/match some ways and it would be cool too. IMO

    Ryan/Johnson (Rangers/DBax)
    Ryan/Clemens (Mets/Sox)
    McGwire/Pujols (Cardinals)
    McGwire/Canseco (As)
    Johnson/Pedro (Expos)
    Sosa/Mcgwire (Cubs/Cardinals)
    ARod/Griffey (Mariners)
    Bench/Fisk
    Piazza/Pudge
    Bonds/Aaron
    Chipper/Schmidt
    Reggie/Jeter (A NY Playoff Thing)
    Kruk/Randy
    Clark/Mcgwire (Giants/As)
    Brock/Rickey
    Nolan/Ventura
    Eckersley/Gibson
    Frank Robinson/Brooks
    Maddux/Glavine
    Brien Taylor/Van Popple

    I'll add some more later.
