Checkin It Off - 1993 Ted Williams Checklist Set

Nine card checklist set in the 160-card base set.
Checklists are mostly broken down by subset.

I've been working on an autograph set and have considered getting the checklists signed, like I have in other baseball sets (usually by umpires or front office folk), except that the front of these cards are too black, and I'd rather not have an autograph on the back of the card.

IP Autograph At An Airshow

Chip Lamb flight lead Trojan Phlyers

Went out to the annual Air Power Expo at NAS Fort Worth JRB back in April.
After this team of T-28s put on their display, they walked the spectator barrier signing autographs.
I commented to the lead that he always puts on a good show, he thanked me while signing his card and handed it to me.
I thought that was pretty cool.

Trade Mail From A Cooperstown #Supertrader

Selection of cards from Cooperstown Exit 316.


2003 Upper Deck Game Face Promo #1

2006 Allen & Ginters Mini Framed Bat Relic AGR-VG 
I just realized the other day that Mike Trouts jersey number is 27, same as Vladdys.
I believe that Vladdy should have his jersey retired with the Angels.
But where would that leave Trout?

Thanks so much for the trade Coop, lots of good cards.
