Fergie Jenkins 2010 Panini Century Collection – ‘Ballpark’ – Game Used Jersey Card – YUCK!!!

OK, this is the last one.   I have tried a few times, but I just don’t find these card appealing.  I have made a few purchased, kept a few for the collection, and even given some away to some loyal readers – but now I am DONE!!

I just find very little to get excited about with this:

YUCK!!!

Paul Molitor 2003 Donruss Team Heroes

‘Team Heroes’ is the theme of this set of cards issued by Donruss in 2003, and the card sure does a great job of representing the Milwaukee Brewers.

Have a look:

Just look at how well Donruss used the colors of the Brewers with  their design.  From the border colors, to the letters of the text – this card looks fantastic!

A great addition to my collection that honors Hall of Famer, Pauly Molly!!!

But seriously, as soon as I saw this card I have to run to www.baseballreference.com to see just how tall Mark Clear is…

The answer – 6 feet, 4 inches.  WHOA!!!
