Trying to break up the posts as I'm feeling that I've made the blog a little too hockey focused lately. As I mentioned, with nothing new coming in lately (or in the near future), I've had to rely on what I have in hand to get some posts out to the blogosphere.
a couple of boxes of Jays cards on the desk to my left, I decided to go
through the unsorted box to see if there were a few cards that struck
my fancy. I did find a few and I'll add just a few random thoughts
This card is phenomenal. One of the best Blue Jays cards that I own.
Someday I'll have to figure out how to enlarge cards like this and hang
them on my wall. I have so much room, it's like a blank canvas to be
used for cards such as this...
There's a bit of hope for my collection as I found these two cards
together in the box. I know that's not going to be true for the several
thousand other cards, but it was good to find a pair of framed
parallels back to back.
I only wish that the Jays had picked up Reyes earlier in his career...
This is probably the one Blue Jay that I own the most cards of. I
only wonder what would have happened had he played his entire career in
Toronto. A couple of extra years playing DH could have got him to 500

Gotta be tough
having a nickname such as Sanchize. Hopefully next year he can remain
healthy and lead the rotation again. Hard to believe after leading the
AL in ERA and HR/9 that he could only gain a contract in the $535K
One of these days, I'm going to collect all the cards I have of players
that are like Alomar's above. I might be able to put together a
makeshift deck of cards from Blue Jays and other PC type cards. Check
out the reflection of the SkyDome in Alomar's glasses by the way, makes
for a great photo.
Great idea for a baseball set, piggybacking off the success of 90-91
OPC Premier hockey. Only problem, OPC made the set too Toronto/Montreal
focused in my opinion. 1992 Premier was much the same, and they gave
up on the concept after that.
With Irma on the way, I may have time to actually sort some of these this weekend...God willing.
Thanks for reading, Robert
