Letter Never Sent: Carlos Beltran

I'm still enjoying the cards I recently received from The Diamond King's blogger extraordinaire Kevin not too long ago.  There were player collection cards-a-plenty.  And that's, y'know, right up my alley.

In prior posts, we've already looked at some great new-to-me cards of Gary Carter and Doc Gooden. Today, let's scope out some of the nifty Carlos Beltran pieces that found their way to my doorstep recently.

2000 Pacific Vanguard

2002 Topps

2004 Fleer Platinum

2004 Fleer Ultra

2005 Topps Heritage

Tough to pick a winner from this five-pack.  I'm heavily leaning towards the Fleer Platinum card for an obvious reason: the K.C. Monarchs jersey.  But, I've always been partial to 2002 Topps, so that's a nice one, too.  And, of course, anything Heritage is always a no-brainer choice (especially when the ivy-clad walls of the Friendly Confines enter the equation).  Well, luckily I don't have to choose, since I get to keep all of 'em.

Still a few more parts of Kevin's recent mailing that I'd like to highlight, so stay tuned...
