Random Cards From My Collection #16

Card #12701
1996 Bazooka #88 Derek Bell
Yet another 1990s attempt to bring kids back to the hobby.

Card #9170
1990 Fleer #653 Delino Deshields/Jason Grimsley
The rookie card of Delino Deshields and an alleged (the Capewood Collection's legal department made me add alleged) drug dealer.

Card #1594
2001 Topps A Look Ahead #1 Vladimir Guerrero
A Player I Collect. There was a time when Vlad appeared in just about every insert set issued.

Card #4341
1998 Bowman Chrome Refractor #2 Scott Rolen
A Bowman card from back when they tried to make the design look different every year. I was always partial to the card backs of this set.

Card #28543
2011 Topps Allen and Ginter #93 Evan Lysacek
Non-baseball players are OK in Allen and Ginter.

Card #14186
2009 Topps 206 #5 Chris Young
Phony back smudges and all.

Card #14291
2008 Topps Moments and Milestones #61 Chase Utley
The set that gave serial numbered cards a bad name, in my opinion.

Card #25310
2011 Topps #71 Trevor Hoffman
How do you like your check list cards?

Card #249
1994 Flair #53 Kirk Gibson
Fleer's entry into the Super Premium card market. Lots of gold foil, heavy gloss and fancy packaging.

Card #5291
2004 Donruss Elite Turn of the Century #190 Lou Gehrig
Before they disappeared, Donruss had gone parallel crazy. It's impossible to keep track of the cards they were issuing. There were so many limited issue cards in this set that none of them are very valuable. I only paid $3.50 for this on eBay in 2004.
