Mirror mirror on the baseball card...

A quick 5 card pickup from Listia - just for the two Jays cards which you can see below...

Both new to my collection, but nice to also get the Fernando card as well.


We saw some 2005 Leaf Certified Materials cards a couple days ago, and here we have a parallel from the set. It's not serial numbered, but does note as "Mirror" on the front and have the white background colour - apparently there are different background colours.Very coloured scan picking up the light which fairly shows how it looks in hand under light. Add to this a few more 1991-92 Sharks and Russian insert cards including Alexander Semak who was in the NHL through the mid 90s before heading back to Russian teams.

The rest

Not nearly the star power in these Leaf Certified baseball cards, but not a problem as they are all new to me. I also don't mind the mid-90s NHL cards like the MacLean (only second card from this set).


Of these, a bit disappointed the Malkin dupe is split in one corner which you can't really see here, but it does mean another card for my son to further enjoy. Given how the Upper Deck football cards seem to be fitting into holes in the set, I could see this set eventually being close to complete...not that I want it, but an accomplishment is an accomplishment.
