This seems to be the norm lately, as you saw the night before last in my post about the '75 Topps cards that Ryan sent me.
Well, there were no Crinkly Wrappers in this box, but "retired" blogger Ted sent me an amazing box of Blue Jays. This was no small box kids...it was a 500 count box.
I am never going to catch up with all these Jays cards....
I could easily have pulled 50 cards from this box and inundated you with Jays cards until your ears bled.
I'm not that desperate....yet
I did find 10 for you to peruse, some different, some amusing, some partially French.
How about some old style Blue Jays uniforms from the 80's, as featured on a Mark Eichhorn '89 Score.
This next card sent me scurrying to baseball reference .com
Next up, a card of Roy Halladay that falls under the category of ugly but good.
Since it's a rookie card, we'll forgive the hideousness. At least for a moment.
Sticking with the '85 OPC them, here's Willie Upshaw...
Willie's cousins Gene & Marv Upshaw played in the NFL. That's all his bio on the back says. Less is more I guess.
This next guy reminded me of a book I had just finished reading about George Steinbrenner...
The next card is a design that I had never seen before, a '94 OPC of Roberto Alomar
Next up, we have a sticker for idiots...
The next two cards are of Dave Stewart, or "Smoke" as he was nicknamed. The first is a '94 Pinnacle Museum Collection parallel...
Nobody....makes fun of Dave's hat!
These 10 cards just scratch the surface of what Ted sent me. I may have to pull off a marathon soon to get caught up.
Thank you for the Jays Ted! This post is only the beginning.
thanks for reading, Robert
