I've received some cool cards in the mail from cardsphere folks over the past couple weeks. Time to catch up and give them their spotlight. So here are several cards I got from a pair of Dodgers fans and a pair of Yankees fans.
Can't blame you if the '90D doesn't excite you, but come on, these candidates for my Vintage Frankenset are a fun bunch! Expect to get a closer look at them in forthcoming posts about that project.
Thanks, Bo! I feel bad I've been owing you cards for a while even before this, so it's a priority to hit you back with something good soon.

And biggest for last is a surprise zapping from the Luis Torrens Fan Club. Kinda like a repack blaster with all the repurposed wrappers. Nice to get a pseudo rip in!
And a pair of hits! A Jorge Mateo auto and an Anthony Davis relic managed to sneak out of Kenny's collection and into mine. Awesome! Originally signed by the Yankees out of the DR, Mateo made his big league debut with the Padres last season. And I don't follow basketball very closely, but I know he's one of the best in the game and teamed up with LeBron to win the 2020 NBA championship with the Lakers. Happy to give my little basketball collection a bump with this jersey card.
Thanks, Zippy! Very cool. I'll have to return the favor one of these days.
