Bobble Head Fun and Blues Autos and a Jersey (card)

I wanted to post a few more items gifted by Mr. Fuji. I added another bobble head to my slowly growing collection in my office-Big Mac was one of the goodies in the bag and the Yadi was a recent pickup on the Bay.

Mark also included three St.Louis Blues' autos-a 1998 In the Game Geoff Courtnall and Kelly Chase. Geoff played less than a season with the Blues before a blockbuster trade to the Canucks. These players would then make the core of the Canucks' 1994 Cup run. He would however come back to the Blues for 1995-96 season then would remain until 1999-2000 season.

Kelly Chase I do remember well-he played almost his entire career with the Blue Note, except for a few seasons with the old Hartford Whalers and two games with the Leafs. He currently does the color commentary for the Blues on KMOX.
Also included in the Bag o' Goodies were an on card auto of Blue Jim Campbell who played with the Blues for a number of seasons-last the 1999=2000 season.
How about a legendary Cardinal! Dal Maxvill-he played with the Birds for 10 years then went on to be the GM. He has been out of baseball since about 1994, On card auto on a 1968 Topps none the less, fantastic.
To wrap the generosity of Mark here is a 2006 Bowman Sterling Jersey Card of Scott Rolen. Many thanks again!

  1. I had to slow down my accumulation of bobbleheads. Damn space issues.

    1. Yeah right! I would actually have more but in Cali no basements-thus no "man cave"

  2. Dal was my first and so far only successful TTM signer. Never heard of him before I started researching baseball highlights that took place on the day I was born. That day... Dal went 2 for 2 with a sacrifice bunt.
