A few weeks ago a reader of ’30-YOC’ named Jon told me that he had some cards for me that would be better suited in my collection than his own. Always being curious and grateful, I accepted his offer and the cards were delivered quickly and safely to me.
On to the good stuff:
A 1992 Donruss Darryl Strawberry. While not featured with the Mets in this set, this card is still a great addition to my collection. I like the design, and the Blue used on the card’s borders and graphics compliment Darryl’s new Dodger uniform.
Up next is a 1992 Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Sportflics card featuring Hall of Famer Jim Palmer. My scanner was able to catch Palmer right in the middle of his wind-up. Cool!
Here we have 4 modern-day Greg Maddux cards from his second stint with the Cubs. The photo on the ’04 Donruss Playoff Honors cards is perfect. But my favorite of the bunch has to be the 2006 Topps Heritage card. It screams vintage – I LOVE IT!!!
And last, but certainly not least – 3 Eddie Murray cards that were on my ‘needs’ list. This collection is very close to completion, and Jon gave me 2 of the last 4 cards I needed!!!
Thank you Jon. This was a very generous gesture by you and I am working on something special for to show my appreciation!!!
