Dude, Just How Many Former Angels Are There?

1993 pack of Topps Stadium Club Series 3 Listia pickup.
Thumbed through the cards and noticed a theme...
They're just about all ex-Angels!

Spike Owen - 1994-1995
Pat Mahomes - nope
Mark Eichhorn - 1990-1992, 1996
Tom Brunansky - 1981
Andre Dawson - nope
Brian Williams - nope
Dave Winfield - 1990-1991
Harold Reynolds - 1994
Jeff Reardon - nope

See what I mean?
Hey there's an idea for a new collection goal...pick a set and try to only get all the cards of players who played for the Angels!

Uh, no.

Nice John Olerud for the player collection - the only "Never an Angel" player I collect.
Any Blue Jays fan name the players whose numbers are on the bats behind him?

I like this card because of the old style stadium in the background.
County Stadium?

Barry Bonds Members Only insert card.
Only Frank Thomas, Bonds, Clemens, Joe Carter, and Greg Maddux were in this series 3 subset.
Would rather have had the Maddux.

Sole Angel in an Angel uniform in the pack was Russ Springer (1993-1995).

Sweet!  A Series 3 checklist card!
Always exciting.

And a special offer card.
These I actually dont mind, as I keep them.  I especially like the ones from Topps packs in the 70's and 80's.
This particular one has a zillion variations on the trim color scheme.  I have 6 or 7 different so far.
