Another padded envelope!
Bart (baseballcardman) sent me a padded envelope of Indians cards as a "thank you" for his "12 Days Gift Pack." There were about 50 cards in there (some which appear above!) and included gems like the "2000 ALL-UD" Roberto Alomar, several 2001 Topps Heritage, more than a handful of Topps 1986, 2004 Donruss Studio Jody Gerut, 2002 Fleer Flair Sabathia!, a couple Topps Chrome, Fleer Genuine, Larry Doby Greats of the Game, Bowman, US Playing Card Company (I had to include Jones tossing a 'flaming ball' in the photo above!), Fleer Impact, and more! A wonderful surprise! The only card I am scratching my head over is a 1989 "Interpretive Marketing Products" "Baseball Wit" card of Boog Powell. The card has a "Little League Baseball" logo in the upper right corner. I do not believe I have ever seen this make and model of card before. Now, all you fellow Tribers are shouting "because Boog was a TRIBER, you fool!" about now, which I am well aware of, but this one features him in an Orioles cap. Yes, I know he played for Baltimore before coming to Cleveland, and I'm going to guess he was included because he was a Triber. I just don't get many ex-Indians in other unis, so I had to think it through... LOL!
Whatever the reason, I send out a huge THANK YOU to The BaseballCardMan for this cool selection of Indians cards.
