Random Cards From My Collection #26

Card #25532
2011 Topps Opening Day #34 Jair Jurrens

Card #8779
2002 Topps Traded #31 Mike Timlin
Mike was part of the trade that brought Scott Rolen from the Phillies to the Cardinals on July 2002. He was 3-3 for the Phillies the reminder of the year.

Card #9691
2000 Upper Deck KG #1
This is an interesting card. It looks like a 2000 Upper Deck Victory card but it's numbered KG1. In 2000 Upper Deck Victory had a large subset dedicated to Griffey, but the cards here horizontal and didn't look like the rest of the cards. Beckett.com does not list this card. I got it in a repack a few years ago. Does anybody have any ideas?

Card #20626
1992 Fleer #540 Terry Mulholland
Card #18887
2007 Topps Turkey Red #100 Gary Sheffield
I think everybody liked Turkey Red.

Card #26882
1996 Topps #262 Tom Glavine
Glavine will be eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2013. With 305 wins and 2 Cy Young awards, he should get in the first year.

Card #29010
2009 Topps Wal Mart Black Border #56 Edwin Encarnacion
Remember the stir these cards caused in 2009?

Card #18490
2010 Topps Allen & Ginter Mini World's Biggest #7
The World's Biggest Castle!

Card #23930
2001 Bowman #82 Moises Alou
He hit .331 for the Astros in 2001.

Card #1628
2001 Topps Fusion #220 Tim Salmon
2001 Topps Fusion. I really liked that set.

The Griffey was available in team sets that were sold at retail locations in the Cincinnati area. I think the rest of the cards carried the regular set numbers, but I could be mistaken.

Thanks, JT. That card has been a mystery to me for a while.
