Check Out These Cards

Well, I bought some cards through COMC a while back and got them in this week.. 

I've been awol the last couple weeks for the most part because for the most part, I've been working and sleeping.. Work had me incredibly stressed out, but that should lessen Monday. I'm not going to go into too much detail about it here.. If you follow me on Twitter and are genuinely curious, you can contact me there.. 


Cards.. I bought 'em.. 
Cards... I'll show 'em.. 

I got a couple new Pete Ward cards I didn't have before. I also got some 1979 cards I needed. For the most part what I needed were Canadian players and the Jays checklist. 

John Hiller, as I mentioned before, went to school with my friend's dad in Toronto. Reggie Cleveland is from Saskatchewan. Dave McKay is an original Blue Jay. 

Some 1992 Topps Traded here as well.. Matt Stairs for the Canadians binder, Jack Morris for the Jays, and Vince Horsman for the Canadians binder. 

Kirk McCaskill also makes it for the Canadians binder. 
I now have completed the Diamond Kings for 1992 Donruss.. Really the only things I need are the insanely hard to find/expensive Update cards, and the Rookies set. 
I really liked the Diamond Kings cards from this timeframe. 

Well, I know I complain a lot about inserts and parallels and all that.. But... There are some inserts I love. Fields of Yore fall into that category. I love stadium cards. 
So here are Griffith Stadium, Wrigley Field, Astrodome, Cleveland Municipal Stadium, Sportsman's Park, Yankee Stadium, and Metropolitan Stadium. 

I still need Ebbetts Field, Tiger Stadium, and Shea Stadium. 

I have some other cards to show over the weekend. 

Have a good one!


  1. Those Fields of Yore inserts are super cool! Had to take a peek at the checklist in hopes of finding a Candlestick Park card. Kinda bummed that they didn't make one... since that's one of the ballparks I attended as a kid.

  2. Pete Ward went to high school in Portland (where I'm from), so I have a bit of an affinity for him, enough so that I've even contemplated trying to collect all of his cards.

  3. The background in the Molitor made me first think it was a 1995 Fleer card.

    1. Is is a 1995 card. Stadium Club Members Only 50..
