Mike Trout National Baseball Card Day

Chose a bunch of cards to show off from a box of cards sent over from P-Town Tom.
Tom let us know that he had bags of cards available for trade, so I took him up on some Gold Topps Angels, and whatever Frank Tanana he had available.
All the rest were a nice bonus he included.

Really great cards Tom, thanks!

TTM Return Robert Kraft

I first sent a hand-written request for a signed business card but didn't include a SASE.
Never heard back.
Sent another request with a SASE and got this back in 11 days.
Draw your own conclusion.

Cool addition to the Patriots collection though.

Completed Angels Team Set - 1983 Fleer Stickers

There were 12 Angels in the 296-sticker set.
Stickers were issued in perforated strips of 10 player and 2 team logo stickers.

The Angels team came consecutively numbered from #24 to #35, except for the team logo sticker which was assigned #272.
I suppose if you unpeeled the stickers and stuck them somewhere (maybe on the mail-order poster) the backs would still be worth keeping since they feature a player profile.

Here's the team logo sticker.

I found two different backs on the logo sticker, one a checklist and one a promotional for the poster you can use to attach your stickers to.
I don't believe that the player stickers have the promo back variation.

TTM Return Doug Jennings

1988 Texas League 100 Anniversary All-Stars #4
1991 Line Drive AAA #539
1989 Upper Deck #585

I received the Texas League card from Fuji in a recent package, that inspired me to send these out for Doug to sign.

Doug was drafted by the California Angels in the 2nd round of the 1984 amateur draft, and played in their farm system from 1984-1987.

Returned in 9 days from his home in Boca Raton, FL.

You're Not Who You Say You Are

I know Gary DiSarcina, and you, Sir, are NO Gary DiSarcina.

That's because you are Tim Salmon!

Tim found his way onto Gary DiSarcina's 2000 MLB Showdown card.
Pretty easy to spot the difference between the two players, plus Gary is uniform number 9 and Salmon is 15.
Yeah, I say easy to spot, but I just noticed this error the other day.
This is an uncorrected error, so poor Gary never got his mug in the set.
