|1993 Upper Deck|
As mentioned yesterday, I recently picked up a 400-count box of random, assorted baseball cards from my local card shop. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I found lots of great cards. I figured I'd split up my finds into three parts: Players I Like; Meet the Mets; and Other Fun Stuff.
If you're sharp, you already know which of those three areas I'll be covering in this post. I'm happy to report that I found over 50 cards in the box that will be new additions to my various player collections. I have quite a few players that I like to collect -- only some of which I've listed in the aptly-named "Player Collections" tab at the top of the page. But, many of these collections aren't very big. Then again, for me, any time I have more than a dozen cards of a given player I think that's pretty extraordinary. [Ed. Note: I'm extremely easy to please, what can I say?]
Anyhow, one of those players is Chris Sabo. I can't tell you how exciting it is to get new cards of Sabo, such as the one above. Great horizontal action shot on one of my favorite non-Topps sets from the overproduction era. Upper Deck '93 gives you beautiful, vivid photography not just on the front, but on the card's back also. What's to dislike?
|1991 Score "Dream Team"|
|1992 Fleer Ultra|
|1992 Score "Sidelines"|
|1995 Collector's Choice Special Edition|
|1997 Donruss "Rated Rookies"|
|2005 Topps Heritage|
|1998 Fleer Vintage '63|
|2002 Fleer Triple Crown|
So that's my look at some of the cards I'll be adding to my player collections. I didn't intend for it to be so lengthy, but I couldn't help myself.
For my next post, I'll get around to scanning some of the neat Mets cards I received.
See ya then...
