Tony Gwynn 1994 Fleer Ultra
While his eyes may be shielded from our site due his wearing of his Oakley Blades, there is not doubt in my mind that Tony Gwynn’s 20/20 vision is firmly locked in on the ball that he has put into play with this swing.
Take a look:
You agree, don’t you?!?!
After all, he was the master of dissecting the incoming pitch so I am fairly certain that he was also pretty good at watching it leave too…

Dustin Pedroia 2014 Topps Chrome – Base
Yessir, I scored this bad-boy for just $0.18 last week during a little shopping adventure on Sportlots.com.
Have a look:
This is the base card of Dustin Pedroia from the recently released 2014 Topps Chrome baseball card set.
The Chrome looks great, and it is nicely complemented by all of the Red accents supplied by the Red Sox uniform that #15 is wearing in this image.
I like it!

Reggie Jackson 1983 Fleer Stickers – Mini
‘Ok, Reggie, Smile for the camera’.
Jeez, talk about a horrible product out of Fleer on this one, huh.
No company branding, team branding, or anything dynamic to look at. Even one of the most animated and exciting personalities in the game could not save this one..
Nothing personal, Reggie.
