Random Cards From My Collection #24

Card #23268
2008 Upper Deck Timeline Gold #11 Ryan Howard
You can't go wrong with a Ryan Howard card. This is the gold parallel of this set. The set featured multiple designs. This is the base designs. Other cards featured designs from past Upper Deck sets.

Card #1073
1998 Collector’s Choice #256 Brian L. Hunter
If a card features two players like this 1998 Collector's Choice subset card, how do you catalog it in your database? Especially if you're borderline excessive-compulsive. I always enter just the player featured first on the card, unless the other player is a Player I Collect, a Phillie or an Astro. So that makes this a Brian Hunter card. And don't get me started on the Brian R./Brian L. problem.

Card #27488
2011 Bowman Gold #170 Alex Rodriguez
I like the look of the Gold cards a lot more than the base black bordered cards.

Card #5933
1999 Upper Deck Victory #74 Sammy Sosa
1999 - the year of the Power Trip.

Card #18604
2010 Topps Allen & Ginter #257 Ervin Santana
Card #286122011 Topps Allen & Ginter #292 Wade Davis
Back-to-back years of A&G at random.

Card #9850
2004 Topps Cracker Jack #21 Paul Lo Duca
And another of one of my favorite retro sets.

Card #3494
2004 Upper Deck Power Up #46 Josh Beckett
A somewhat weirder card from 2004.

Card #18304
2010 Topps Allen & Ginter #106 Dustin Pedroia
And another A&G, back to 2010.  All this A&G is making me excited for the 2012 release. It's due July 11th according to

Card #12170
1996 Pacific Hometown #12 Jose Canseco
And now for something completely different. An insert set to 1996 Pacific. A big slab of gold holofoil on the front and a back with so many design elements it makes me dizzy.
