I still have quite a few cards from the many packages I've received over the past week that I need to go through and catalog/remove from the want list.
For tonight's post, I figured that I would take a few of the cards that Max sent me, and go through a few of the players and see if they were "page worthy".
How many cards will I show off tonight? Let's let Paul Molitor answer that...
Is this going in a page? Absolutely. The card even tells me what position in the page to put it into. I already have 2 pages worth of cards for Molitor, so this is probably going to bump something back into the box.
I always liked Pat Hentgen, largely because he was a battler on the mound. This 1993 Leaf card is OK, but I don't think it's going to be part of a Pat Hentgen page. It will probably end up as part of a team set page instead.
Shiny? Yes. Logos? Nope. Would absolutely love this card if it had the Jays logo on it. It'll probably end up on a Panini page rather than a R.A. Dickey page, because to me it'll stick out like a sore thumb on a player page. I'll put it with its Panini friends, and it'll be happy there. Trust me.
A page for Dave Stieb? You better believe it. Enough cards to fill a page that aren't already in 80's and early 90's team pages that are lying loose? That's a different story. Stieb is one of those "must have" players that must have a page dedicated to them, but I'm going to have to find some newer releases and out of the norm issues in order to put a page together. Stay tuned for that one....
There will be a day when I have every Blue Jay card that I own organized, and in a 9 pocket page.
What date that will be, I have no idea. I don't think that I'll even try to set that date as part of a New Year's goal. Maybe to start a new decade??
