Mariano Rivera 2010 Bowman – 1992 Rookie Card Reprint
I have been on a little bit of a quest in search of a Mariano Rivera 1992 Bowman rookie baseball card. It is a card that I would like to add to my collection before Rivera retires.
I just had no clue that they sell for $25.00 or more EVERY time that they are sold on Ebay. I never thought I would have to pay more than $10.00…
It is time for me to display a tremendous amount of patience as I try to complete this task.
As for now, I will settle for a reprint version of the card. This one comes courtesy of the 2010 Bowman set.

Reggie Jackson 1987 Sportflics
Sportflics were all the rage in the mid0-1980’s.
It was not that they were a better quality product, it was that they were so unique compared to what other card companies at the time were producing.
I tried very hard to set this card at the proper angle on my scanner so you can see the full Sportflic effect – and I think that I did fairly well…

Mike Schmidt 1987 Fleer
Mike Schmidt was still chugging along during the 1987 baseball season. At 37 years of age, and in his 16th big league season, Schmidt showed no signs of wearing down.
His numbers from the 1987 baseball season include: 153 hits, 28 doubles, 35 home runs, 88 runs scored, 113 RBI, and just 80 strikeouts in 613 plate appearances. Schmidt finished the season with a .293 batting average, 26 points above his career average.
Gotta love the Maroon stirrups and spikes!

Jim Palmer 2012 Topps Gypsy Queen – mini A&G Back
I am having a bit of a challenge collecting all of Jim Palmer’s cards from the 2012 Topps Gypsy Queen set.
To date, I have only scored three of them.
My latest pick-up is Palmer’s mini with the A&G Back.
Here it is:
I am going to have to put some more effort into nabbing the remainder of the minis. 2013 will be here soon enough, and if Palmer is included in as many releases as he was in 2011 and 2012 I may start sinking…
Time to go to work!
