Early last week I got a package from Julie. We have wrote emails back and forth so it wasn't too unexpected. However, what I didn't expect was the amount of cards she was sending. As a result, I will break it up into two posts.
I will start with these 1994 Pinnacle. I have stated many times already about my love for the 1994 cards, and Pinnacle was no exception. Julie sent me almost the complete set. As a matter of fact, I only need the Brian McRae card to complete the team set which I can likely find on COMC or Just Commons. I didn't scan all the cards but picked out a few I liked the most.
There's Chico in shades, Chris Gwynn doing a Willie Mays Hayes (I've been cut already), Tom Gordon is the third card. Nothing too special about the card, I guess none of the others stood out much. I liked Tom a lot though. Finally is Bob Hamelin. I may post a lot of his cards but he only played a couple years, so I liked him so much I will probably post 95% of his cards I have.
Finally is David Cone who I can't say I remember him as a Royals player, but I do remember when he came back to Kansas City, some of that spirit seemed to come back, though it was short lived.
Next is another 1994 set- Flair. I'm not sure what to think of these cards. They are different, but not a great design. Though I will never complain getting two of my favorite pitchers.
I have this George Brett card, but it is a nice card and from the year he won his last batting title. That is a feat I don't think will ever be broken. George won a batting title in 3 different decades, thats just unbelieveable to imagine.
I have this Chris Gwynn card. I am still looking for one card to complete the set, I think its the Gary Gaetti. The '94 Collector's Choice is one of my top 5 sets of all time. One day, I may even try to build the whole set myself.
Finally is 1991 Donruss of Mel Stottlemyre. I have acquired quite a few 1991 Donruss cards lately, so I should be getting close to completing the team set. I should also be close to completing the entire set as well.
I always liked the 1992 Upper Deck set, but dont have a lot of cards from it. So I will take two George Bretts. The bat looks curved so I like the front shot. The back shot is good too. I didn't realize George was a full time DH by 1992 though.
We will close up today with the Greg Maddux. This is a card that fits nicely into my collection. It's amazing to me how easy it has been to get his older cards and pretty cheap too. It is a bit of a shame though in the same sense that his cards don't fetch higher prices.
That's going to be all today, but tomorrow I will show some of the newer cards I got in the package. After I got this in the mail, before I even opened it, Julie sent me an email stating she forgot a card I asked for on one of her posts. She mentioned another package was on the way. Sure enough a couple days later, I got another package. So I will post that package after I finish this one.
Then I got another package yesterday. It was from Tony. I knew it was coming too, and I will show it off later this week. All in all, you don't want to miss the next few posts, it is going to be a great week.
Thank you for reading and have a great night.
