Random Cards From My Collectin #70

on January 29th, 2015 by capewood

Card #22932
2007 Bowman #50 Ryan Howard

Comments on the card/player: In 2007, Ryan was in the middle of a 4-year stretch when he was one of the most dominant offensive players in the game. Now the Phillies are hoping that some team in the American League will see some value in him as a DH so they can make room for some younger players.
How/When acquired: Paid $0.30/card in March 2007 for loose packs of Bowman.

Card #2163
2002 Topps 206 Team 206 Series 3 #8 Mike Piazza

Comments on the card/player: 2002 Topps 206 remains one of my favorite sets of that decade.
How/When acquired: Don’t know.

Card #41666
1993 Donruss #547 Brian Harper

Comments on the card/player: 1993 was a nice year for Donruss. The front photography was good, without a lot of distractions. The cards also featured a large photo on the back, with the same 5-year career stats they always had.
How/When acquired: Paid $0.04/card for a Fairfield 250-card cube August 2013.

Card #32780
1992 Topps Traded #11 Todd Benzinger

Comments on the card/player: It looks like Todd really got fooled on a pitch.
How/When acquired: Paid $0.05/card for 100-card Fairfield rack pack repack in May 2012.

Card #45106
2014 Topps Opening Day #214 Travis D’Arnaud

Comments on the card/player: D’Arnaud, the Phillies #1 pick in 2007, was traded to the Blue Jays in 2009 as part of the Roy Halladay deal. Now with the Mets, he had a decent 2014 rookie year.
How/When acquired: Paid $0.14/card for a blaster of Topps Opening Day in March 2014 at Target.

Card #8654
2003 Topps #86 Terry Adams

Comments on the card/player: I always liked the blue borders of 2003 Topps. I also like the little head shot insert on the front.
How/When acquired: Paid $0.16/card for a hobby box in 2003.

Card #15248
2008 Topps Opening Day #198 Rich Thompson

Comments on the card/player: The team name placement on 2008 Topps was kind of fun, but the horrible tabs at the top and bottom of the photos pretty near ruined the set.
How/When acquired: Don’t know.

Card #39942
1994 Donruss #362 Jeff Montgomery

Comments on the card/player: Donruss went full bleed printing in 1994 for the first time. It was also their first use of gold foil.
How/When acquired: Don’t know.

Card #47038
2014 Panini Golden Age #48 Baseball Hall of Fame

Comments on the card/player: Panini had some disappointments last year (2014 Donruss, anyone?) but Golden Age was a great set. In a ranking of similar sets, I’d rank Golden Age just behind Allen & Ginter and way ahead of Goodwin Champions.
How/When acquired: Paid $0.44/card for 144-card hobby box of Panini Golden Age on eBay in July 2014.

Card #46146
1992 Panini Stickers #244 Charlie Hayes

Comments on the card/player: From new Panini to old Panini. Back in 1992, I don’t remember these at all. I’m not sure I would have bought any even if I was aware of them.
How/When acquired: Paid $0.06/card for a 54-card lot of odd Phillies cards on eBay in June 2014.

In Roy Halladay’s long 16-year career, he only played for two teams, the Blue Jays and the Phillies. So Topps didn’t have too many opportunities to Photoshop him into a different uniform. They not only didn’t miss that chance, they did it twice.I just …

Players being interviewed

on December 5th, 2014 by capewood

I imagine that baseball players, at least the better ones, spend more time than they want being interviewed. Here are some cards of players talking to the press (or maybe just the team’s broadcast team).

1995 Collector’s Choice Special Edition #151

On his baseball cards, John Franco always looks like a guy who is always having a good time. Here I imagine he’s talking to the broadcast team during a game.

1993 Upper Deck #35 Kirby Puckett

Puckett looking quite humble probably after he won a game single-handedly.

1989 Upper Deck #515 David Palmer

 Palmer looks like he’s giving a pregame radio interview in his pajamas.

2010 Topps History of the World Series Paul Molitor

Paul Molitor, just before getting a bottle of champagne poured on his head.

1998 Skybox Dugout Axcess #35 Curt Schilling

Curt Schilling probably not expounding on his theory of evolution.

2007 Upper Deck #186 Barry Zito

Barry Zito surrounded by reporters.

2013 Topps #568 Steve Lombardozzi

I imagine the interviewer loves it when sort of thing happens.

2005 Upper Deck ESPN #2 Troy Glaus

Troy looking quite relaxed in what appears to be a pregame interview. Saying things like “We’ve got a good ball club”, and “We just have to take each game as it comes”.

i am thankful for what may quite possibly be my last 1978 topps through the mail autograph successes and all that yaz

on November 27th, 2014 by gcrl
i’ve sent out only a handful of ttm requests this past year, most of which were of players featured in the 1978 topps set.  i’ve had pretty good success with those requests, since they were prompted by recorded successes at sportscardforum.  as always, i am thankful for the former players who took the time to respond.  here are some of them.
wilbur wood
i love this card.  it’s the last card in the first set that i ever put together. it’s got the big lapels and a red jacket underneath the jersey.  fantastic.
paul mitchell

not the guy who started a hair care empire (he passed away in 1989).  did you know that it is that paul mitchell’s business partner who went on to make patron tequila?  this paul mitchell was a first round pick by the orioles in 1971 and wound up spending six years in the majors. he was part of the trade between the orioles and a’s that sent reggie jackson to baltimore.

tom murphy

murphy was also a 1st round pick, taken by the angels in the 1967 secondary draft.  he spent 12 years in the majors, and even garnered an mvp vote while pitching for the brewers in 1974.
pete mackanin

mackanin was once traded for willie davis (by the rangers to the expos).  he’s been an interim manager for both the pirates and reds, and most recently has been a coach for the phillies.

gene pentz

looking like mr. kotter. pentz was in the pirates’ organization when they won it all in 1979, but he wasn’t on the major league roster.
in addition to the through the mail successes, i bought a lot of signed cards from the set.  here are the cards from that lot
ron cey

cey is a fantastic through the mail signer. this one doesn’t have his uniform number inside the ‘r’, which is a bit curious.

don sutton

i’ve had a couple of 1978 topps successes with sutton in the past

bill bonham

now we are getting to the reason i bought the lot.  i didn’t have a bonham card signed, and his card always intrigued me as a youngster.  my brother and i thought that his hair looked like the hulk’s and that perhaps bill bonham was an alias for bruce banner.

there were some cards signed with ballpoint pen, like this larry christenson

and this dave goltz

both of whom have signed for me through the mail.

bob knepper’s card is also signed in ballpoint

and he was one of the cards that i wanted out of this lot.  i saw knepper pitch against the dodgers a few times,  and i followed his 1978 season pretty closely thanks to a neighbor who was a giants fan and tried to convince me that knepper was better than sutton (knepper did have better numbers in 1978).

aurelio rodriguez

rodriguez passed away after being hit by a car in 2000.  this looks like other examples of his signature, so, if authentic (as is the case with all of these autographs), it would be a great addition to my collection.

aside from the bonham, knepper, and rodriguez cards, the other big draw was this one of carl yastrzemski

the signature here doesn’t look too far from some older examples i have seen, but it lacks the tell-tale ‘y’ that circles the ‘c’ in carl in his more recent autographs.  maybe that’s just when he signs on a single line, rather than stacked. still, i don’t think this is legit.  the facsimile auto on his 1975 topps card (which obviously came out before this card was signed) is more like his recent stuff, while this one looks more like his 1967 topps facsimile auto.  good thing i only paid a few bucks for the lot.
i’ll finish this post with the most recent 1978 topps ttm success i’ve had.  it came from thad bosley

and was over 3 years in the making!  i sent the card to bosley in may of 2011 when he was a coach for the rangers.  i received the signed card in october of this year.  so maybe this won’t be the last of the 1978’s for me, as there are a few older requests still out there…

signed cards aren’t all that i am thankful for, by the way.  happy thanksgiving everybody!
