By the page: 1994 Topps

With the amount of player pages/set pages that I have available right now, it's been easy to alternate between the two.

The 1994 Topps set was an intriguing enough page for me to schedule for you Sunday morning coffee reading pleasure (hopefully). 

The '94 Topps set was 792 cards in total, with the Jays having all or part of 31 of the cards.   So a 2nd page for this set shouldn't be out of the question somewhere down the line.

Top row:  Rickey and the relievers

I had to check and see if this was the only card I had of Henderson as a Blue Jay.  I do have one other ('94 Collectors Choice).  That is a great shot of the bat going through the zone (check swing maybe?)

Middle row:  Turn your head and cough

Sometimes the horizontal cards are just perfect for the action in the photo.  The Fernandez card in my opinion had to be in the middle.

Bottom row:  Starters

Stottlemyre the only Blue Jay not in a game uniform on his card.   Would love to see something like what he's wearing as an alternate jersey for the Jays (the Pirates pull it off well with the gold 'P' on the black jerseys, why can't the Jays do something like that?)

I think that this page has a little bit of flow to it...and brings the total out of the box to 148 cards.  The piles are starting to shrink a bit.  


thanks for reading, Robert
