Love the dual rookie cards. Marisnick has found a nice little home in Houston, while highly regarded Michael Choice has seemed to flame out in Texas. Then a former and future former Red Sox. Adrian Gonzalez never found his groove in Boston and was packaged with high priced Carl Crawford, and malcontent Josh Beckett and shipped to the Dodgers in one of the greatest dump deals ever. Nick Punto drove everyone to Dodgertown too. Wade Miley was seemingly coming into his own when the Red Sox peddled off two of the key prospects they netted in the Dodger deal to acquire Miley. His one season in Boston was up and down but he ended up about right where he was the prior two years. During the offseason, Boston, having a wealth of starters dealt Miley to Seattle for the underrated Carson Smith.
To wrap it up, here are some Archives
The Adam Eaton card looks off due to the White Sox changing their color scheme. Back in 1976, the red was part of the WHite Sox uniforms. Jay Hey looks right at home in a 1990 style card ready to team with a pair of young Jones boys for a great run. Wei Yin looks way pissed that his hatless hot was not used for a Heritage set, but stuck on a 1985 inspired card. Sal Perez has really blossomed in KC and is a huge part of that teams current run of dominance. I really liked the 1982 design, and it is great to see current players and their facsimile signatures done in this style. Topp it off with the beloved 1972 style card. (Anyone else looking forward to 2021 Heritage??!) Love getting one of baseball's great modern legends in Derek Jeter. Design wise, A-Gone closes out this post with an exit stage right.
Thank you Shane, I appreciate your generosity. I have another package set aside for you.
