Ichiro - Mariners - Illinois Jafronius (Wahoo!!)
Johan Santana - Twins - Northampton Therapists (Wahoo!!)
Mike Sweeney - Royals
JD Drew - Dodgers - Maddings (Wahoo!!)
Carl Crawford - Devil Rays - Illinois Jafronius (Wahoo!!)
Illinois Jafronius bookended the pack with two hits! Patchworks' gimmick is it had relic cards with patches on them. Usually at least - some of the 'patch' cards from the inaugural set had no patches. We got no relics here so no problem! As you can see Donruss had some competition in the 'out-there' baseball card design department, but these look kinda nice if you stare at them for a while.
Let's go from futuristic design to a retro product. 2004 Fleer Platinum.
Nomar Garciaparra - Red Sox - Thoughts and Sox (Wahoo!!)
Al Leiter - Mets
Pat Burrell - Phillies
Esteban Loaiza - White Sox
Derek Jeter Platinum Portraits - Yankees - Bo Rosnys (Wahoo!!)
Erubiel Durazo Unsung Hero - A's
Corey Patterson - Cubs - Pedersejs (Wahoo!!)
Bo Rosny with the Mojo Jeetah! As you can see this set was loosely based on the 1984 Fleer design but took some liberties reinterpreting it for the modern age including color coding the border by team color. Lots of free agents here if you want to snag one.
That's 12 cards, we'll finish up the post with a pack of 2003 Fleer Focus Jersey Edition. Because everyone was jersey card crazy in the early 2000's.
David Eckstein - Angels
John Olerud - Mariners - Kazis (Wahoo!!)
Joe Randa - Royals
Tim Salmon - Angels
Randy Johnson Team Colors Jersey - Diamondbacks - Alecs All-Stars (Wahoo!!)
Manny Ramirez - Red Sox - Jacksonville Jobu (Wahoo!!)
Randy Wolf - Phillies
Pedro Martinez - Red Sox - Thoughts and Sox (Wahoo!!)
There are too many hits! I can't keep up. Let's see if I can make it to tomorrow and open up some Upper Deck stuff.
