The Few

Can't always get a bunch of keepers, sometimes you just get a lonely set build addition... 

Even ended up with more Jays than set keepers...

Alright, this is my 14th copy of the Steve Karsay card, including the one in my 1991 Score complete set, so let's talk about the man's career as a Blue Jay. He didn't have one. He was traded before making the big leagues as he didn't do that until 1993 with Oakland.

He played in the majors from 1993 through 2006 however was out for the full years of 1995 and 2003. With a 32-39 career record over a career that spanned 5 teams, he did alright, but obviously the injuries impacted his career.

Lots of 1990 Score covering the rest of the cards...

Those big headed all star cards just look like bobbleheads. Not complaining, still a neat way to do them, but that's what they remind me of.

Still really like the Franchise subset cards - a bit of a Studio vibe to them.

Before we go, another PWE trade share with a small trade with TCDB member aselchert10 who was nice enough to turn some basketball inserts into baseball cards I need...

I am a sucker for serial numbered cards, so those are winners in my book, and the crackle diamond effect on the Gregg is so overwhelming, it's just something to behold - whether you really like or really don't like it.

Big thanks for the awesome additions as I really do love even the high numbered gold parallel cards, they usually look pretty darn solid.
