I keep buying these things and I keep not being disappointed. This was a 103-card pack for $3.99. You can’t beat 4 cents a card.  Nothing earthshaking in the pack but some nice cards nonetheless. You can usually count on a handful of 1970s cards. …

Random Cards From My Collection #65

on September 26th, 2014 by capewood

#39936
2006 Fleer #272 Bryan Bullington

Comments on the card/player: This was the first year of Fleer after it was acquired by Upper Deck. 2005 was the first year since 1997 that Fleer had issued a card simply called Fleer. 2007 will see the last of cards called Fleer. This 2006 issue hardly seems the effort it took to print it.
How/When acquired: Don’t know.

Card #3970
1995 Collector’s Choice Special Edition #100 Cliff Floyd

 Comments on the card/player: Collector’s Choice, published by Upper Deck, took it’s name from Upper Deck’s nickname for themselves back in 1989. They were “The Collector’s Choice”. The Special Edition, or SE, wasn’t exactly a parallel to the regular edition as the set was smaller and featured different photos. There was also SE Gold which was a direct parallel of SE but with a Gold shield and a gold foil facsimile signature.
How/When acquired: Don’t know.

Card #43018
2013 Panini Golden Age Delong Gum #24 Nap Lajoie

Comments on the card/player: 2013 Panini Golden Age had several insert sets based on old baseball card designs. All of them were well done. I haven’t seen 2014 Golden Age yet.
How/When acquired: Paid $0.39/card for a hobby box in October 2013.

Card #19160
2006 Fleer #267 Randy Wolf

Comments on the card/player: Really, Random Number Generator, we didn’t need another card from this set in this post.
How/When acquired: Acquired in my 2010 Summer Clearance Trade.

Card #44084
1998 Topps #168 Mark Grace

Comments on the card/player: Amazing was a pretty consistent hitter. He hit .309 in 1998, one of 8 years (of his 16 year career) in which he hit over .300 for the season.
How/When acquired: Don’t know.

Card #44020
2013 Topps Making Their Mark #36 Carlos Martinez

Comments on the card/player: I’m not sure Carlos has made much of a mark so far. He’s 4-5 with 1 save since making his debut in May 2013
How/When acquired: My wife always manages to find a few packs of baseball cards for my Christmas stocking. That’s where I found this.

Card #12425
2002 Topps Reserve #21 Bob Abreu

Comments on the card/player: After being released by the Dodgers in 2012, Abreu tried to make a comeback with the Phillies this spring. He did not make the team (the Phillies have too many outfielder as is) but did later sign and play for the Mets.
How/When acquired: Another card I acquired in the 2010 Summer Clearance Trade.

Card #35092
1982 Fleer Stamps #111 Fernando Valenzuela

Comments on the card/player: Fernando, with a special guest appearance by Tommy Lasorda. There were two Valenzuela stamps in this set, the other featured him with Warren Spahn in his Milwaukee Braves uniform.
How/When acquired: I wasn’t collecting cards in 1982, so if I ever saw these in a store I didn’t care. I bought 34 10-stamp strips of Fleer Stamps (along with the stamp book) for $11 in August 2012.

Card #18456
2010 Topps Team Sets #2 Joe Blanton

Comments on the card/player: Joe appears to be pitching right out of his uniform.
How/When acquired: Paid $0.35 per card for the 17-card Phillies set in June 2010.

Card #39117
2009 Topps Allen & Ginter #198 Jhonny Peralta

Comments on the card/player: The year A&G experimented with borders.
How/When acquired: Paid $0.42 per card for a hobby box in August 2009.

My Reference Cards #3 – 2000 Bowman

on September 23rd, 2014 by capewood

Although Bowman had started “color-coding” their cards in 1997, they hadn’t quite settled into the black-red and black-blue motif that they relentlessly followed for the next 10 years or so. By “color-coding” I mean that veteran players had a red highlight while rookies had a blue highlight. The set had 440 cards and was issued in one series. Individual packs had 10 cards and were available for $3.00.

A nice design although the player photo is a bit squeezed. Instead of black, the cards are gray. The red is more maroon to me. The player name and card logo are in gold foil. The “Bowman Briefing” on the back first appeared in 1999 and continues to this day.

In addition to the blue highlight, the ‘rookie’ cards had silver foil. Since Oswalt didn’t actually appear in the majors until 2001, under MLB’s current rules, this would be called a “1st Bowman Card” and be part of the “Prospects” subset.

There were no subsets in 2000 Bowman, just the division into veteran and rookie cards.  There were however inserts and parallel cards.

Bowman Retro and Bowman Future

This parallel set was printed on foil board and was inserted one per pack. The veteran players were featured on an old-fashioned TV while the rookies were featured on a more modern looking TV set. The cards had the same photos as the base set but cropped to only show the players heads.

Bowman Autographs

There were 40 autographed cards inserted at a 1:144 ratio. I did not get an auto in the hobby box I bought but got this on eBay later. The card has “Certified Autograph Insert” embossed in in blue foil on the front and a holographic sticker on the back. The auto is on-card.

Bowman’s Best Preview

These were inserted in 1:18 packs. I got one of them in the box.

Bowman Early Indications

This 10-insert set had a strange finish. The swirling lines on the front were raised giving the card some texture. These were inserted 1:24 packs. I pulled just this one from the box.

Bowman Major Power

Another 10-card set with a glossy, textured finish. These were inserted 1:24 as well, but I got two of them.

Bowman Tool Time

 Bowman was really fond of this hard-to-scan finish in 2000. This was a 20-card set inserted at 1:8. Higher insert ratio, better chance of getting one. I got 3, including the Phillies Pat Burrell.

There was also a Bowman Gold parallel in this set but I don’t have one. Other than that, I have at least one representative card of the entire issue. There’s lots of Bowman to go. Coming up will be Bowman Chrome, Bowman Draft Picks (regular and Chrome) and Bowman’s Best.

Broken Bats and Baseball Cards

on September 17th, 2014 by capewood
