Toronto Box Day 9 - Not sure about 400...

So one non-Toronto card today...

I think Dave Winfield is generally not remembered as a Blue Jay - though he did win a World Series with the team, he was only in Toronto for the one season of 1992. He spent many years in San Diego and as a Yank before hand, and even spent time in California, Minnesota, and Cleveland. A 12 time all star, happy that Toronto gave him the one World Series ring he had over his Hall of Fame career.

There were some new Jays in this bunch though...

If there is one early 90s set I don't have all the Jays for and really want to set, it is '91 Studio. Love these poses because at least they are in a posed setting. If it is a field shot, it should be game action, not the spring training pose on the field, or pre-game pose.

The Tony '88 card is the Leaf version (I do already have the DOnruss version). Also - yay for more 1994 Donurss!

Back when Triple Play was a decent set for kids to collect. A shame they brought it back and brutalized it with the faux cards of 2012 and 2013. Of course it helped being licensed back in the early 90s, and a decent design, even if it tries to incorporate 1990 Donruss red and 1991 Fleer yellow.

New Base 42 41 22
New Other 13 6
Dupes Base 133 96
Dupes Other 5 2
Total 193 145 22 360
