1993 Upper Deck ‘Cy Clones’ Starring Cy Young, Fergie Jenkins, and Whitey Ford
This could be one of the coolest cards I have picked up since going after the modern issues of Fergie Jenkins.
Issued in 1993 by Upper Deck, I really don’t know the history of this baseball card. But regardless of what it is, this card appears to be celebrating some of the greatest pitchers of all-time, and I am just thrilled to see Fergie being put on the same playing field with these other legendary hurlers.
Check out this beauty:
I told you that it was great… :)

Johnny Bench 1981 Topps All-Star
After 13 seasons as the Cincinnati Reds full-time catcher, the 1981 baseball season is the first in Johnny Bench’s career in which he missed an extended period of time.
Bench played in just 52 contests during that year. And still, he produced. Amassing a batting average of .309, Bench collected 55 hits in 178 at-bats. And he also rung up 8 doubles and 8 home runs.

Former Dodgers’ great Sandy Koufax pitched 323 innings in 1966 and didn’t hit a single batter. He set a National League record for most innings pitched without hitting a batter.

Wade Boggs 1992 Score Superstars
Wade Boggs had a flawless technique at the plate. And here, on his 1992 Score Superstars baseball card, we get to see how Boggs’ follow-through allowed him to hit so many baseballs as hard as he did.
Head is down, weight is balanced, bat is level, and foot is pivoted!!
Excellent work, Wade!!

Darryl Strawberry 2004 Upper Deck SP Legendary Cuts
Just trying to rack up a few modern issues of ‘Straw’ now that my PC is complete. And as long as the cards have him wearing a Mets’ uniform I am good to go.
And it doesn’t hurt at all that the card just happens to look like this…
