Snazzy Rizzuto and getting an insert set

For the equivalent of about 50 cents, I picked up the 1990-91 O Pee Chee Red Army insert set off Listia (free shipping). As I have mentioned on here, I have a complete set but about half the cards are gum stained messes. This set is clean and crisp, so now I can chuck (ie. give to my son) my gum battered cards. Here is a scan of the full set in all it's glory...

As for the Santa Lot today...


Great to move to almost 75% of the 100 base cards from this set. The last 30 are retro rookies, and though a couple have come up, I would not expect to see all of the rest.

These cards bring up some awesome players though. Phil Rizzuto won 7 world series with the Yanks - 7. I know that dynasties happen, and in such situations guys can end up with multiple rings but day the Blue Jays will have a run like that...right....

With the number of teams and the league now, I think days of such dynasties are done - best would be a few championships and a number of playoff runs over a 5-6 year period.

The rest

Yay Heritage. Not as nice as the Upper Deck Classics in my mind, at least not this offering, but still baseball is always welcome.


Some more needed 2004-05 Ultra basketball to keep bring that set along and a number of 1991 7th Inning Sketch QMJHL. Fave would be the short term Raptor, Respert, however that is my Toronto bias.
