Thank you for reading, thank you to those I have traded with, and thank you to anyone that I have had the chance to interact with regarding this great hobby - that's a large part of what makes it so fun. We continue with a perfect example, with some more of the cards that were sent my way by Oren who I only connected with from their reading of this blog (blog success indeed!).
Most of these...if not all, are duplicate Jays as I do have much of the flagship base sets from the 1988-1992 period covered. Not all, but most. Doesn't mean these are any less loved to be received though.
Speaking of loved anyway - the diarrhea colours sets of 2002 definitely fit in that realm. The Swing Men cards are great, but what Topps was thinking with that colour choice - just no.
Some newer cards including some beautiful parallels. I especially love the pink Stroman, but am always partial to the golds.
The Dickerson photo is beautiful though and perfect use of the landscape design.
So much Donruss, they didn't all fit on the scanner - my fault it cut off a bit, but we have seen them all before. I still need to check exact variations to see if any are "new", but the fronts, we have seen.
We do get to end the bunch with some awesome shiny cards. The Diamond Anniversary cards scan pretty nicely, and are as sparkly in hand too.
The acetate Josh Donaldson is awesome too - a great bunch of new additions...and the best is yet to come when I finish sharing the cards that came my way from Oren, tomorrow.
