No Hiding From The Expansion Draft

A Trade Post From Remember The Astrodome.

I love this card. I love it because Junior Felix is obviously playing for the Angels on it, but the banner at the bottom indicates he was selected by the Marlins in the Expansion Draft.
So it begs the question: Angels or Marlins card?

Even the back shows him as an Angel. And look at the "Contract Status" line at the bottom, "1 yr. thru '93". THRU. This is 1993 Donruss card, that means he's still part of the Angels!

Lots of other goodies in the package.
Game cards for the collections.
I might include the 1993 Triple Play Griffey with the Angels team set since it has their logo on it.
1994 CC You Crash The Game

1999 UD MVP #2
At first I thought Marc had sent two. The silver signature is hard to pick up on the second card.

1991 ProCards
Minor league cards are some of the best. I had never noticed the crossed American/Canadian flags on the Trappers jerseys before.

2014 Topps sampling of the mind-blowing number of parallels.
The yellow is probably my favorite.

Checklists are always appreciated.

And all the rest.

Thanks Marc.

  1. You're most welcome! Always happy to send some cardboard your way. Dig the throwback jersey Richards is sporting on that yellow parallel as well.
