Random Cards From My Collection #22

Card #17241
2008 SP Authentic #3 Albert Pujols
 As abstract card designs go, I like this design. It's busy but with lots of white space.

Card #2201
1994 Upper Deck Electric Diamond #33 Mike Piazza
1994 saw Upper Deck issuing several parallel sets for the first time. Parallel sets are pretty common today but we're just getting started in 1994. The Electric Diamond parallel was distinguished by the Electric Diamond logo running up the left side of the card in holographic foil.

Card #20229
1990 Score #171 Tom Herr
After 9 full years with the Cardinals, Herr spent the last 4 years of his career playing for 5 different teams.

Card #18369
2010 Topps Allen & Ginter Mini Black #276 Daniel Runzler

Card #7235
1988 Topps Tiffany #669 Lance Parrish
Topps issued these Tiffany versions of their sets, with a high gloss finish and printed on white card stock, only as complete sets. They were relatively difficult to obtain.

Card # 29421
2007 Ultra #41 Ken Griffey Jr.
Upper Deck flushed Ultra and Fleer down the memory hole after 2007.

Card #3442
2001 Fleer Legacy Hit Kings Troy Glaus
I like clear statements on the back of relic cards like this one. "You have received a card which contains a piece of an authentic, game-used bat, which was used by Troy Glaus". I got this on eBay for $6.00 in 2005.

Card #18965
2009 Bowman Chrome Draft WBC Prospects #9 David Ortiz
Ortiz hit in 2 of the nation's 3 games in the 2009 World Baseball Classic games, but a prospect he was not.

Card # 31023
1994 Topps #605 Barry Bonds

Card #14916
2010 Topps Heritage #427 David Wright
The short-printed cards from 2010 Topps Heritage were easy to recognize, they were on white card stock.
