Random Cards From My Collection #19

Card #6190
1995 Stadium Club Members Club Baseball #49 Bob Hamelin
This was a 50-card boxed set available directly through Topps. There was a similar set offered for football and basketball. I own the entire set but I don't remember how I got it. I know I didn't join the Stadium Club club. Hamelin was the 1994 Al Rookie of the Year. He played for 6 years but didn't amount to much.

Card #18636
2005 Fleer Showcase #62 Scott Rolen
This 135-card set featured silver foil and high gloss. The cards numbered over 100 are unnumbered short prints. Cards 101-111 are rookies and the rest are veterans. Fleer, I think, pioneered this idea of including short printed cards as part of the regular numbering.

Card #8397
1991 Topps Traded #4 Jeff Bagwell
One of my favorite players of all time.

Card 21597
1997 Collector's Choice #418 Kevin Stocker
I wonder what he is doing.

Card #19543
1990 Score Rookie Dream Team #10 Eric Anthony
This was a 10-card set available in a factory box of 1990 Score. This is the only one I have. I like the design.

Card #16476
2010 Topps National Chicle #133 Andrew Bailey
This is one of my favorite sets from the recent past.

Card #30734
2011 Topps 60 #104 Alex Rodriguez
This is one of my least favorite sets from the recent past. One of the dumbest ideas for a card theme I've ever seen.

Card #4217
1996 Select Claim To Fame #18 Barry Bonds
Beckett still claims that this card is worth $30. I wonder. Only 2100 sets were produced.

Card #24470
2006 Topps Heritage #356 Jason Lane

Card #10574
2008 Upper Deck Goudey #142 Chase Utley
This was one ugly set.

The last two copies of the Bonds card that sold on Ebay went for $9.75 and $4.99. Not bad, but nowhere near Beckett.
