Here's a pair of nice looking blue bordered refractors. Mookie and Goldy.
Picked up 3 Giancarlo cards.
These guys raised some eyebrows in Padres spring camp, getting sucker fans like me to think they were on the verge of break-out seasons. But Jabari Blash has struggled (Rule 5 guy who recently cleared waivers and was sent to AAA after the Mariners didn't want him back) and Jemile Weeks is injured.
A pair of Gavin cards. Gavin the Goof-Off fits alongside the "Thanks Gavin" Garbage Pail Kid as kooky cards (stickers, actually) in this minicollection of mine. Don't know much about this set, but I believe it was originally released in 1973 and reprinted in '88 (1988 Donruss Awesome! All-Stars #63, is what this is).
A pair of cheap, neat-looking autos of former Padres Xavier Nady and Kevin Kouzmanoff.
As I look to wrap up my Ken Caminiti collection, I've been trying to score a few nicer cards to round it out. These are pretty cool looking are each serial numbered. That Donruss stat line parallel might be the only card I have of Cammy as a Ranger.
My Julio Franco collection is pretty much done (by my arbitrary criteria) but I was compelled to pick up this parallel #'d /75. As for the John Kruk auto, yeah it was probably a dumb purchase even if it wasn't much money. I'll likely make a custom overlay for it one of these days if I can find a good photo to use.
Time to rock..
My love for David Lee Roth shines through in my choice of letter patch cards. Haha, no, actually I needed these letters in my goal to spell BASEBALL CARD BREAKDOWN. I'm getting pretty darn close to it thanks to these and a few other pending cards that I should be receiving soon. Gavin Floyd and Kevin Kouzmanoff make their 2nd appearance of the post. I've been trying to keep the cost of these around $2-3 per, but I paid a little extra to get a Gavin into this project. On the other hand, I don't know anything about Jarett Dillard, but this was the cheapest L available.
That's gonna do it for this order. Thanks for checking them out.
