Random Cards From My Collection #27

Card #24102
2002 Donruss Best of Fan Club #184 Shane Reynolds
Donruss, apparently believing that they could never underestimate the obsessiveness of baseball card collectors, released their Fan Club set in 2002, followed up with Best of Fan Club set. The difference? None, except Best of Fan Club was printed on foil board.

Card #23014
2006 Sweet Spot #64 Bobby Abreu
I got this card from a group break run by fellow blogger Thorzul Will Rule in 2009.

Card #3113
1993 Fleer Final Edition Diamond Tribute #9 Dave Wingfield
This 10-card set was only available as part of the 1993 Fleer Final Edition factory set, which I did not buy. I have the whole set but I don't remember how or when I got it. A Player I Collect.

Card #6847
2006 Topps Turkey Red White #440 Brian Giles
The white bordered parallel, inserted 1 in 4 packs. I got this is a blaster box.

Card #21286
1995 Upper Deck #144 Kevin Stocker
Nice action shot. I wish I knew who the sliding player was. It looks like an Oriole. In 1995, that would mean this photo came from a spring training game.

Card #409
1989 Fleer For The Record #5 Greg Maddux
In 1989, you would get one card from this 6-card set in every rack-pack of Fleer you bought. I got the entire set on eBay for $3.29 in 2003. A Player I Collect.

Card #32062
2012 Topps Opening Day Mascots #M-13 Dinger
A purple triceratops as a mascot? Why not?

Card #1038
1996 Select Certified #58 Carlos Baerga
In 1996, a 6-card pack of this would set you back $4.99. I bought the entire 144-card set on eBay in 2004 for $12 (including shipping). The cards came with a peel-away protective cover.

Card #23792
1999 Bowman #313 Carlos E. Hernandez
Even as far back as 1999, Bowman had already established Red/Black for veterans and Blue/Black for rookies. Hernandez, a second baseman, played 16 games for the Astros in 1999 and 2 games for the Mariners and that was his major league career.

Card #4592
2005 Topps Opening Day #6 Mike Cameron
