A complete set (36 cards) of the 1992 Toronto Oh Henry Fire Safety set. I really like the set, and it is a great time of the Jays obviously. Just showing a few highlights here. Billy had said earlier he would send this to me if he could find it - so very glad he did.
He also threw in a couple additional cards - I presume early Toronto dupes from his forray into hockey cards - and I am happy to get them...
Especially the Todd Gill rookie card which is new for my collection from a great set in it's own way - 1990-91 Pro Set.
A great thank you to Billy for these!
There have been a number of occasions when I have come across serial numbered cards out of the Santa Lot, and a lot of the time they end up being basketball cards or football cards, but looks like today I finally lucked out with a couple today...
Let's get the obligatory Toronto card out of the way for today. At least there is one, even if it is a repeat. Then there are these:
I don't care that these are supposedly considered part of the base set in numbering. They are serial numbered cards so for that, I keep them. I don't mind the layout though, and it makes sense to play of the "regular" base card design in good part because they have been numbered for the base set. I don't know why the serial numbering itself isn't in a better spot, and I prefer a more indented/stamped number myself.
You have to like team cards, and when done in a retro style, even better. Being able to then also add a couple more cards to the 2007-08 Upper Deck Hockey series two set - and these are pretty nice all around.
I don't believe there have been many of the Select Rookie cards pulled, and here we have three. I don't mind the big "ROOKIE" wording on the front when it doesn't interfere with the card otherwise, so these work for me.
