When Cards Come Calling

Reader Bob reached out a while back seeking to trade. Since then he's send me three if not four packages of Angels cards. Bob's generous. I sent him a package of oddballs which is what he likes, but I'll have to do more digging to keep up with his additional packages!

I have to admit, I THINK these all came from Bob. I've been in a bit of a collecting/blogging rut this season, during which time incoming cards have all been lumped in together. So if you see a card you think maybe came from you, please accept my apologies. But for now I'm assuming these are all from Bob's packages.

Here are some of my favorites:

2019 Donruss Elite Series #ES2
Ohtani's base card from this 10-card insert set with numbered parallels.
What a fantastic card.


2007 Upper Deck Game Materials #UD-VG
About a 1:24 retail pull for one of the 83-card Game Materials cards. I've always preferred the gray material over the white. Red would be my absolute favorite.

1990 Wonder Stars #3
Found in loaves of Wonder Bread (which I never ever ate growing up - it was too expensive for my large family), Abbott was one of 20 stars in the set with airbrushed MLB logos.

1996 Fleer Smoke 'N Heat #4
These Smoke 'N Heat insert cards (10 in the set) were found in about 1 of 9 packs.

2001 Upper Deck e-Card #E5
From a 2-card pack randomly inserted into hobby boxes, the finder would enter the code on the card front into Upper Decks website to see if they won a signature or jersey card. Pretty cool, as I had never seen these before.

1988 Topp Revco League Leaders #23
Classic 33-card glossy box set could be found East of the Mississippi in 1988.
Downing tied with Dwight Evans for most walks at 106 in 1987.

1989 Topps Ames 20/20 Club #31
You don't see Devon White in a box set set too often, but in 1987 Devo hit 24 homers and stole 32 bases, making him a selection for this 33-card set Topps produced for Ames Toy Stores.

2003 Upper Deck Sweet Spot Classic #21
I always enjoy seeing Angels vets on retro cards, long after they've retired. Kinda nostalgic.

  1. I tend to give Panini a hard time since I'm kind of a "logo" snob. But I've got to say... that Ohtani is outstanding.
