Random Cards from My Collection #25

Card #18752
1999 Topps Opening Day #71 Bret Saberhagen
The first few years of Topps Opening Day had big silver foil logos instead of the wimpy logos they have today.

Card #11190
2006 Topps WalMart #23 Bobby Abreu
These retro-themed cards were available 3-per-box in Walmart blasters in 2006.

Card #4297
1997 Score Titantic Taters #9 Todd Hundley
This 18-card set was inserted 1:35 packs of Series 1 Score. I didn't buy much 1997 Score because I didn't like it much, but I managed to pull one of these.

Card #22628
2003 Topps 205 #42 Nick Johnson
After any year of Allen & Ginter and 2004 Topps Cracker Jack, this is my favorite retro set of the 2000s. I have a box of Series 2 which I haven't cataloged yet so expects some posts on it soon.

Card #27793
2011 Topps #566 Jordan Zimmermann
Not Zimmerman, but Zimmermann.

Card 27823
2011 Topps #593 Francisco Cordero
Card #316952011 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Memorabilia Peter Tago

The Rockies #1 draft pick in 2010, he was 3-5 in Single A ball last year. I picked this up for $2.10 on eBay last February.

Card #6865
2004 Topps Shoebox #8 Robin Roberts
This was a nice set, only available as a boxed set. The packs came in a shoebox, complete with tissue paper.

Card #6630
2004 Just Rookies #52 Scott Mitchinson
A nice Australian boy who pitched 5 years in the minors but never made it to the bigs.

Card #8553
2007 Bowman Heritage Rainbow Foil #223 Chase Wright
Wright was the Yankees #3 pick in 2001. Except for 3 games in 2007 (where he won 2), Wright has had an 11 year career in the minors.
