I have completed about .005% of the 2008 A&G set because I wasn't collecting last year. I have picked up a few of the Rangers, but I just wanted this one because I wanted it. "WE ARE SPARTA!"
I asked for this 2003 UD National Pride Michael Aubrey pants card for my son. It will go along nicely with the Conor Jackson card I picked up from the Troll.
The last of the cards I requested is this 2005 Topps Gold AL Batting Average Leaders #0721/2005. I put the number on there because I know you're all jealous...I'm one of "only" 2005 people in the WHOLE WIDE WOLRD that can own this card. Take that fellow collectors! Well, it does have Michael Young on it. Now for some of the extras Mark threw in to make this a great trade.We'll start it of with these 1990 Donruss Rated Rookies of the world famous switch-hitting Juan Gonzalez! I thought these cards were hilarious back when they first arrived on the scene, but I did not have the reverse negative as a result of my big card dump at the garage sale a couple of years ago. Thanks Mark.
Nice cards of a Hall Of Famer. Between 1967 and 1974, Ferguson Jenkins won 20 games 6 seasons in a row and 7 seasons out of 8. Fergie looks happy on the 1981 Fleer Card. By the time the 1982 Topss card was issued, it looks as though Fergie was tired of being in Texas. That seems to happen to a lot pitchers in Texas.
Here we have another 1975 Topps card I didn't have. Leo Cardenas has serious issues with centering, but we can't blame that on him. I'm sure Topps had something to do with it. Leo only played two seasons with the Rangers and they were his last two. He had a 16 year career which is longer than most.
