Orioles Card O' The Day. This was a mix of Baseball & Football stuff with a couple of surprises. Here's one of the surprises:
A Braves pin! I am very close to being one of those guys at the ballgame with the team color pocket polo shirt, checkerboard polyester pants hiked up to my nipples and a big straw hat completely covered with pins, so here's one more pin for the hat.
1995 Donruss Tops of the Order Chipper Jones
This set was Donruss trying to cash in on the Magic: The Gathering craze. It bombed. The game was confusing, there was a big spinner dial that did... something, and baseball CCG games have never caught on with collectors. The main reason they have never caught on, is that everyone tried to copy Magic's system where the really good cards are short printed. See where I'm going here? Someone ripping packs ends up with a bunch of scrubs, set collectors go crazy trying to find the stars and people who already play card and dice based games like Strat-o-matic would rather have all the players to build teams. I got a few packs when it came out hoping to find a Chipper, and now I've got another hole in the collection filled.
1986 Meadow Gold Dale Murphy
Wooo! Oddball! These cards came in boxes of popsicles.Murph here was paierd up in a panel with Dwight Gooden. How's that for a pair?
1985 Topps Tattoos
I got Mahler on my bicep, Raffy on my ankle, and you just don't wanna know where Knuckie is.
2008 Goudey Emmitt Smith Berk Ross Hit Parade
I freaking love this set. One card closer now...
1995 Donruss Red Zone Jessie Tuggle
Yep, this is the football version of the CCG. It's even more complicated than the baseball version. Jessie Tuggle's my favorite Falcon though so a nice oddball of the Hammer is always nice.
1994 Collector's Choice Bobby Hebert
You have no idea how popular Bobby Hebert is in this town. There are people out there who still want him to be the starting QB for the birds.
1993 Pinnacle Moe Gardner
One last football card to finish up the post. Moe Gardner does a happy dance after penetrating the offensive line. Ya know what, I don't need double entendres with this card. just enjoy.
Thanks again Kevin, I've got some Xmas O's headed your way whenever I am brave enough to deal with the post office!
