Sentators Single: 1952 Bowman Archie Wilson

 

1952 BOWMAN Archie Wilson 210

I recently got this beaut from a Sportlots auction. I had to pay up a bit more than the opening 25¢ bid at $.175 plus a steep $4.85 shipping. But it is nice.

Expos Extra: Stadium Club Ultra and Gold

EXPOS EXTRA: Stadium Club Ultra and Some Gold
Alrighty then lets get this show on the road. This month I am cheating a little by making an Expos post. Hey my blog my rules. Actually one of the cards I'm showing is of one of the transition Expos to Nationals players but I'm only showing his Expos card. You have to read the post and/or view the images to find out who. HA.

I started the idea for this post with the thought of showing a couple of base cards with their gold variant and then decided to toss in a few cards that were in the same trade package that the variants were in. All 8 of these Expos cards are from 1999 Fleer Ultra and 2002 Topps Stadium Club 4 cards from each set.  

First I'll show a trio of bonus cards just the fronts:

A Montreal Trio Vlad plus 1
We have: 
1999 Fleer Ultra Baseball:
174 Dustin Hermanson
20 Vladimir Guerrero
2002 Topps Stadium Club Baseball:
27 Vladimir Guerrero

Next I'll show the meat and potatoes of this post the gold variants with their base counterparts.

Orlando Cabrera: 2002 Topps Stadium Club Baseball 40
Base and Gold Variant
2002 Topps Stadium Club Baseball: 40 Orlando Cabrera Base

2002 Topps Stadium Club Baseball: 40 Orlando Cabrera Gold
This card is a THICK one. 
Not as thick as some relic cards but at least double thickness compared to the base

RONDELL WHITE: 1999 Fleer Ultra Baseball 117 & 117G
Base and Gold Medallion Variant 
1999 Fleer Ultra Baseball: 117 Rondell White Base

1999 Fleer Ultra Baseball: 117G Rondell White Gold Medallion

Now the transition Expos to Nationals Player Jose Vidro
2002 Topps Stadium Club Baseball: 39 Jose Vidro
2002 Topps Stadium Club Baseball: 39 Jose Vidro

I hope you enjoyed these blasts from the past from the Great White North.

Harrisburg Senators 2012 Season Pocket Schedule


I wasn't sure if I had already blogged about this or not. I thought I had but apparently I have not. I also thought I was confusing it with another Pocket Schedule I have somewhere for I think for the Syracuse Chiefs (now the Mets) that has Bryce Harper on the cover. That one I think I have two copies of. This one for the 2012 Harrisburg Senators I thought had Bryce Harper on it. But the player on this one is wearing number 3 which during 2012 was Eury Perez at one time, however the player is not Eury it is Chris McConnell who wore number 3 for the Senators in the previous season 2011.


Actually that very well could be Bryce Harper (with his "4" hidden) he is batting lefty. One copy of this currently on Ebay is advertising it as Bryce. OK yeah it's Bryce Harper. So I might only have one of these schedules.

Anyway here is the 2012 pocket schedule for The Harrisburg Senators.

NOTE: I started the draft for this post about 9:10 PM on Sunday 28 February and worked on the scans around 11:30 PM to about 12:10 AM Monday 01 March.

Victor Robles 2020 Stadium Club Times Two

OK this is a very quick, probably the quickest posting I've ever done. To make my self appointed posting/publishing deadline I had to publish this post before any final edits or anything that resembled a draft for the post. OK it is cheating a little but I don't care right now.

Any way I got these two cards from a monthly Baseball group box break that I belong to that I have the Nationals for. The host is mostly a football guy so he isn't familiar with all the baseball stars. It has actually been a few months since I've had the time to watch the group box break videos. Anyway. These Victor Robles cards are from a break back in November of last year 2020. I had my regular Nationals and based on some other cards in my package I think for that month I also had the Orioles as a random team and the Miami Marlins were the last or next to last unclaimed team that got randomized. One of the products opened for the month of November 2020 was 2020 Topps Stadium Club Baseball. So I got a few of my Curly W Boys and the bonus of getting the Oversized Boxloader (BoxTopper).

Guess who it was? Yep so the two cards are the base card of Victor Robles number 133 and the Box Topper which is a larger version of the base card.
