Haul #14 From “The Andre Dawson Firesale”

Haul #14 From “The Andre Dawson Firesale”

This time around, I landed 5 game-used relic cards to my winnings. 

I was amazed at how low I picked up a few of these for.  But that is not a complaint by any stretch…

Bring on the loot:

2004 Donruss Elite – Passing The Torch – Game-Used jersey card – numbered 109/200

2002 Fleer Classic Cuts – Game-Used jersey card

2003 Upper Deck SP – Sweet Spot Classic – Game-Used jersey card

2002 Upper Deck SP – Legendary Cuts – Game-Used jersey card

2002 Donruss Classics – Legendary Lumberjacks – Game-Used bat card – numbered 290/500

And there you have it, haul #14 is in the books. 

The Andre Dawson Firesale will be wrapping up within the next few weeks – I encourage anyone that wants to add a few pristine, premium cards of the newest member of the Hall of Fame to stop by and check it out for yourself!!!   http://shop.ebay.com/hlrzr32/m.html?…&_sop=1&_rdc=1

2006 Fleer ‘Greats of the Game’ – REDS – Tom Seaver

2006 Fleer ‘Greats of the Game’ – REDS – Tom Seaver

Seaver was a Rookie of the Year winner, a 3-time Cy Young award winner, and a member of the 1969 World Series Champion New York Mets. 

His Hall of Fame resume includes 311 wins, a career 2.86 ERA, 3,640 strikeouts and being a 12-time All-star. 

Seaver was one of the most dominant pitchers in the 1970’s – and he deservedly earned the nickname ‘Tom Terrific’!

Joe Morgan 1985 Donruss

Joe Morgan 1985 Donruss

1984 was Joe Morgan’s last year in the big leagues.  But a few companies issued cards of him in their 1985 issues.

And this is the one from Donruss’ 1985 set:

Pretty poor, huh? 

And personally, of all of the uniforms that Morgan wore during his Hall of Fame career, the A’s uniforms from the mid-80’s takes the cake as the worst!!!

Ryan Braun 2009 Upper Deck Goudey

Ryan Braun 2009 Upper Deck Goudey

Classic, Classic stuff right there!!!

If you didn’t tell me to look at the back of this card to check the copyright date, I could swear that this one was issued sometime in the 1940’s.

Holding true to the vintage look, the 2009 Upper Deck Goudey set is a favorite of mine.  Perfectly done, and extremely tasteful, this set combines all of the elements of old-school baseball cards with the modern technology of high-grade cardboard.

And these cards look great when autographed too!!!
