(Note: The pictures uploaded in some weird reverse order or something, so the text does not quite match up. I tried to fix it, but only made it worse... I am blaming my watching of "1408" while I posted this as the reason.)
As mentioned in my post of the cards WhiteSoxCards sent me, Mr. Peterson (aka PunkRockPaint) also sent me a package that was truly packed with Tribecards.
There are more than 100 cards easy. I figured it would be fun to break each photo into a particular thought/idea. So, lets start off with an array of brands: Fleer Futures, Topps Archives, Topps, UD Masterpieces, Fleer Ultra, UD Starquest, Topps Chrome, Donruss Signature Series, Fleer Showcase Wave of the Future, Fleer Brilliants, Metal Skybox, Topps Allen & Ginter, UD SP Top Prospects, Donruss Regular, UD Ionix, Topps Gold Label, Topps Stadium Club, Fleer Regular, Bowman Chrome, Pinnacle Museum Collection, UD Diamond Collection, Donruss PressProof, Topps Turkey Red, UD Sweet Spot Classic. And, that's just in the first stack:
For the next group of cards, let's talk about players: Bob Feller, Ryan Drese, Travis Foley, Victor Martinez, Albert Belle, Casey Blake, Fason Beverlin, Russell Branyan, Paul Byrd, Sandy Alomar Jr, Roberto Alomar, Jaret Wright, David Huff, Tom Brookens, Manny Ramirez, Frank Robinson, Cory Snyder, David Winfield, Tim Drew, Roger Maris, Eddie Murray, Ryan Mulhern, Orel Hershiser, Satchel Paige, Nathan Panther. Again, those are just the guys in the second stack:
Let's talk about the "mojo" factor, since this next stack (er, I hope, since I am typing this without knowing which images are really being shown where as I write) has a couple worth noting: Fleer Showcase Sticks Game-Used Bat from Roberto Alomar, Fleer Premium International Pride Game-worn jersey of Ivan Gonzalez. Other stacks have serially numbered cards, limited parallels, etc.
How about die-cuts, autographs, and such? SP Marquee Matchups, Donruss X-Ponential Power, UD PowerDeck CD, Pacific Christmas Ornament, Fleer E-XL Legion of Boom, Fleer eX E-Xciting, UD UR2K Blue 2353/3500, UD UR2K silver 150/250, UD Authentic Memorabilia Game-Used CC Sabathia Jersey, Bowman Signs of the Future Trevor Crowe and Adam Miller. A great mix of unique cards!
And how about some of the greatest names to have donned a Tribe uniform? Jim Thome, David Justice, Bartolo Colon, Manny Ramirez, Omar Vizquel, Early Wynn, Leon Wagner, Lou Boudreau, Bob Feller, Stan Coveleski, Kerry Wood, Tris Speaker, Joe Carter, Larry Doby, Travis Hafner, Grady Sizemore, and more!
And last but no way least, here are more Indians cards of random greatness:
