TriStar Fuji

One of the great pleasures in collecting is having others have the same interest and passion. Not the usual refrain I hear "You still do that?" So as usual it was great to see fellow blogger Mr. Fuji of The Chronicles of Fuji. He informed me he had a bag of goodies for me and it would be better to get at the end of the day. I thanked him profusely and picked it up from a friend of his on the way out. Wa la . A bag of goodies.
What did this very generous bag of treasure include? Well a Big Mac Bobble Head now at my office and subject of future post. A binder of empty sheets. Going to be home to our soccer cards.
A selection of Tuff Stuff and Beckett Mags with King Albert 
An empty box of Wheaties Fuel cereal with King Albert-wonder what they tasted like. Apparently there were several players on the cover of this defunct cereals.



There was even a Fuel cereal bar.
Included in the bag was a box of cards. Many of which were new additions to the collection. On to the cards-first some new Yadis! 2008 Bowman, 2010 bowman chrome 2010, and 2009 Topps Heritage.

Some more interesting Topps. 2003 Gallery J.D. Drew, 2010 Opening Day Toppstown Stars, 2008 Heritage Pujols, 2014 Red Sparkle Joe Kelley, and 2014 Stadium Club Beam Team Waino.



Some Topps vintage including a high 1962 Red Schoendiest, 1962 Rookie Tim McCarver! 1964 Broglio, 1968 Cardinals Celebrate, 1968 Larry Jaster. I have this card but the one rom Fuji as some interesting photo issues-double up the image. I filed it away before taking a shot of it. 1971 Ted Simmons.



Next is a very interesting odd ball a 1968 Atlantic Oil Play Ball Contest Brock and another Simba,  a 1980 Kellogg's.
A few more cards to wrap it up. 2013 Hometown Heroes Willie, 1997 Leaf Fractal Matrix Andy Benes. AND drum roll please. Patrick Wisdom  2015 Topps Pro Debut Ornge Auto #ed 3 out of 25!





The Right Handed Corner Infielder is now at Triple A Memphis. He has been in 34 games, scored 19 runs, 7 Hrs, 23 RBIs, .278 BA, .331 OBP, .524 SLG %. Thank you Fuji!!!!!!
