Jarrod Washburn Game Card

Jarrod Washburn was selected for a player card in the SportsNut Fantasy Game insert set in 2003 Upper Deck MVP Baseball.

The cards were part of a subset intended to match sports card collecting with fantasy sports, a first of it's kind. Basically you collect points that could be redeemed for MLB merchandise. Apparently the idea went over very well with collectors. The cards were inserted at a 1:3 ratio. There were 90 different player cards total.

Troy Glaus SN1 and Darin Erstad SN2 are the other Angels in the set.

TTM Return From Chili Davis

I have no record in for these specific cards being mailed to Chili Davis. I have a still "waiting" request for a 1993 Select card I sent to the Athletics Spring Training in 2012 however. Maybe he finally returned it but swapped out the cards? Dunno. Anyhow, here's what was returned.
