Infield Fly Rule Trade Mail

Heres just a small selection of the two bricks of cards I received from Infield Fly rule.
I picked out some of my favorites.

1992 Classic Best
Nice selection of Angels Rookies.  Look at that great Jim Edmonds card!

1981 Fleer Star Stickers #50
Angels Great Bobby Grich contemplating his next diving stab, double play.

1993 Triple Play #103
A very young Damion Easley in my favorite Angels uniform.

1994 Upper Deck
The crotch shot I can do without, but the Jorge Fabregas chasing a pop-up action shot is awesome.

1997 Fleer Update
Almost the whole update Angels Team set.  Just short of the Duane Buice card.
I'm sure I have a dupe somewhere.

1994 Upper Deck prospect cards
Ryan Hancock - cool, Jorge Fabregas - SWEET!

And a couple "Angels in the Background" cards.
Looks like Damion Easley on the left.
On the right I'm not sure.
Oh wait, it too is Damion Easley.
His uniform number changed from 46 to 1 in 1993.

Thanks for the package Adam, much appreciated.

Nice selection of Angels in the PWE.
I really dig Mo Vaughn's 1999 Upper Deck Encore #2.
And who is on the matching side to that Tim Salmon Marquee card?

1988 Fleer Logo Sticker for the Master Set.

And a really sweet 1996 Skybox Adventures of Batman & Robin, Action Packs, Pop-Out card #P1.

Thanks for the Christmas gift.

I recently received this completely awesome custom card from Gypsy Oak Studio:

Nolan Ryan 1977 Penny, Never Go Broke card

So sweet.

You really need to go check out the website

and on ebay: oak-vault 

Some seriously awesome, custom art work.

And to the proprietor of Gypsy Oak Studio:
Thank you so much!
Somehow I deleted the email string that led me to you, I can't remember any names, and I can't find the envelope this came in.
Its been one of those years for me.
But thanks again.

Completed Angels Team Set - 1968 Topps Game

Two Angels found their way into the 1968 Topps Game, 33-card set #16 Dean Chance and #33 Jim Fregosi.
I had the Fregosi signed a long time ago.

According to my Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards this set is not too popular with collectors.
I have to disagree, I think that this is a great little set, and I'd love to have one of my own.
