I Love The Smell Of Cardboard In The Morning Trade Mail

Regarding a handful of team bags full of cards, in a padded envelope, Tim hoped I could "find some cards I need". 
Boy did I.  
I also found cards I want, and cards I just altogether dig.

2003 Topps #41 Gold Parallel 0931/2003

2007 Bowman Sterling #BS-BW

1999 Pacific #7 Red
Came one-per pack.

1999 Fleer Ultra #36G Gold Medallion
Could have been centered better, but I love the gold background.

2016 Allen & Ginter #122 Mini Black

2016 Topps Spring Fever # SF-1

Tim Salmon selection
1997 Score #494 Goin Yard (center)
Can't identify this foil parallel, no Premium Stock stamp.

2003 Donruss Diamond Kings #155 Bronze Foil
One of the greatest card ideas ever: framing.

2015 Topps Heritage A Legend Begins #NR-2
I will definitely have to work on this Nolan Ryan subset.

2016 Topps Walmart Holiday Snowflake #HMW59 and HMW119
Snowflakes on baseball cards...ho-kay.

2000 Upper Deck Collection Sweepstakes Cards
Lou Gehrig 1927 Road Jersey
This is awesome because it's another variation that I didn't have.
My card is on the left, Tim sent me the card on the right.
The difference is that Tims card has a line on the back to enter your email address.
Mine doesn't have that.
Subtle variations, gotta look for those subtle variations.

Baseball Checklist Cards
Random sampling of a bunch of checklist cards included.
Hopefully I can complete a couple sets out of them.

Drew Bledsoe Rookies
Gotta list these, they are so cool, and I didn't have any of them yet.
1993 Classic Four Sport Acetates #6
1993 Playoff #295
1993 Upper Deck Rookie Exchange #RE2
1993 Classic Four Sport Tri-Card #TC2
1993 Classic Four Sport Power Pick PP8

Really great cards Tim, thank you.


  1. Glad you enjoyed them Tom! Sorry once again for the delay.

  2. 1997 Score Salmon subset could be a Showcase Series parallel:

    "This foil-fronted parallel is available for all 551 cards, across all pack types."
