Random Cards From My Collection #34

I've been scanning a lot of cards lately, the total scanned is now 36,170.

Card #22040
1991 Bowman #562 Javier Ortiz
Not a promising start to this random card post.

Card #33493
1992 Stadium Club #295 Brian Holman
Amazing difference between the 1991 Bowman and the 1992 Stadium Club. Both sets were produced by Topps.

Card #3183
1989 Donruss #510 Freddie Tolliver
Freddie spent 7 years in the majors, three with the Phillies. He managed to have a 10-16 record.

Card #28659
2011 Topps Lineage #155 Bob Gibson
Perhaps the most boring base cards from 2011. This set did not come back in 2012.

Card #35571
2011 Topps Gypsy Queen Relics Brett Gardner
There are 25 cards in this set. I've got 17 of them.

Card #1633
2001 Topps Heritage #203 Andy Benes
The inaugural year for Topps Heritage.

Card #12192
2009 Topps #186 Ryan Madson
Mad Dog had 32 saves for the Phillies in 2011. During the 2011-2012 off-season he signed a $8.5MM one-year contract with the Reds. In spring training he tore a ligament in his throwing arm and had to have Tommy John surgery. He's signed with the Angels for 2013.

Card #22410
2004 Topps Cracker Jack #129 Vicente Padilla
As I've said before, one of my all-time favorite sets. Padilla was 7-7 for the Phillies in 2004. He pitched for the Red Sox last year. Looks like he's no longer a starter.

Card #11206
1998 Skybox Dugout Axcess Double Header #1 Jeff Bagwell
Do you think anyone ever bought enough packs of Skybox to be able to actually play the game? I didn't.

Card #25871
1989 Fleer Update #11 Jim Abbott
1st round draft pick in 1988, 12-12 record in the majors in 1989. A Player I Collect.
