First up, 1993 Upper Deck Runnin’ Redbirds. I really appreciate the design of the card-the sunset in the background with Geronimo Pena, Ray Lankford, Ozzie, and Bernard Gilkey. Dear Topps I want fan favorite autos of Gilkey and Pena! Ray was interviewed during a recent Redbird game and he is still involved with the team-I wish he was a little more involved-he spent nearly his entire 13 year career with the Birds.
2001 Fleer Team Leaders Albert.
2000 Fleer 3000 Hits The Man. Fantastic card, this is a box hit from 2000 Fleer Focus odds being 1:36 packs. There is a relic version which would be sweet-I will be on the look out for it a good price.
2013 Topps Opening Day Fredbird. Who can't love this mascot-
2013 Cooperstown Green Shard Red. He is very excited with about his gloves.
2011 Gypsy Queen Rogers Green and 2011 Gypsy Queen Rogers Home Run Heroes. He is one of those players that I would have loved to see-but also how would he have performed in the desegregated era of baseball?
1989 Bazooka Vince Coleman and Todd Zeile. Back in the day I worked at a grocery store and bought a ton of Bazooka boxes to get these, fool!
Speaking of LCS give aways. There is a special place in my heart for the Spring Fever cards and here is a beauty from 2013-Stan Musial.
Corky threw in some cool oddballs. First one is a Andrew Jones 1997 Topps Screen Play. What a trip, it is pretty cool and originally sold for $4. Nestled in foam in the inside is Screen Play. Pretty darn cool-I don't see any Redbirds on the checklist-no surprise. I am not taking the protective film off of it.
This is what it would look like if I did.
He also included the lid from a tin of 2005 Upper Deck Legends with Satchel Paige-pretty cool.
I have saved the best for last! A 2016 Donruss 1982 Pink Yadi! Finally I can add a new Yadi to the collection. Fantastic!
Thank you so much Corky for your generosity and your blog!
