(7) Random, Yet Important, Cards:
My freaking scanner!!!
1999 Flair Warren Morris- This was one of the first cards I bought when I cashed in on the Harper Auto. I’ve had no luck finding this card cheap for years now, and couldn’t bring myself to pay over a buck for it, plus shipping. But since I had nice card fund, I decided to put this set out of its misery and add the last remaining card. For the first time since my blog started, this card is off the Most Wanted list.
Along the same lines, I was able to knock out my final 2 Diamond King Base Cards from 2003. Hard to believe I didn’t have the Tony Gwynn already, but I didn’t.
With these two Reel Time Cards, my 2002 Stadium Club Set is now 100% complete. There are some relic card inserts for this set, but I’m going to pretend they don’t exist and call this set done. Also shown is a Topps HD Game Defined Mark McGwire. I was actually a little miffed that this was an aluminum parallel card, even though it is a rarer card than the standard Game Defined Card. I bought it on Sportlots and the listing did not have an image. I probably would have got it anyway had I seen it was a parallel. This is not my first loose interpretation of a complete set with HD. Man, HD was nice. I wish it would be re-issued.
Another SPX 2003 beauty. This. Card. Is. Awesome. Greg Maddux is a guy who I appreciate more and more with time. Craig Biggio is the other one. I really should have more good cards of them both.
