Andre Dawson 3-Card Set: 2004 Donruss Elite ‘Passing The Torch’

Here’s a nice little 3-card set featuring a certain favorite player of mine. 

The cards are from the 2004 Donruss Elite subset called ‘Passing The Torch’.  I don’t know how many color backgrounds are in this set, but I was able to stock up on the primary colored ones during this ‘go-round’.

Each of these is serial numbered, so it appears that the circulation of this set was fairly limited.  The Blue card is numbered as 206/250.  The Green is 83/500.  And the Red is 38/1000.

If there are more colors available, I will go after them.  Anyone know for sure about these???  If so, please educate me!!!


DC 4

Did You Know…

The only pitcher to save three All-star games was Dennis Eckersley, in 1988, 1990, and 1991.

My take – Just another cool stat about one of the most dominant and well-rounded pitchers from the last 30 years!  Eck is cool!!!

Happy Anniversary Mr. October!!!

On this day in 1977, you hit 3 consecutive home runs in the World Series and earned the nickname “Mr. October”.

Considered to be the greatest individual offensive performance in baseball’s World Series history, you became an even bigger star on this night!!!

Happy Anniversary Mr. October!!!
