I'm posting this one for the sake of a laugh it gave me. When I opened the package and saw this 2008 UD Dioner Navarro, I immediately remembered sending it to the Troll. He sent it back when I started blogging and looking for Plays at the Plate.
This is an oversized Dr. Pepper Omar Vizquel card. I'm not sure if it came in a 12 pack or what, but it's nice and almost unstorable. Somehow I felt comfortable having Omar on the bench last season.
You won't believe what it says on the back right corner of this 1987 Fleer Sticker Larry Parrish. It says "Bend and Peel"! Bend and Peel? You DON'T do that to cards. Even if they are stickers. Unless you're a kid and need a Larry Parrish sticker on your school binder.
The first time I saw this 2008 Topps Trading Card History Joe Mauer was in this package. It's not a great shot or background. Actually, it looks like he's sitting on the toilet. Maybe they airbrushed his pants on and the toilet out of the shot.
You've seen it before. You know of it's greatness. This 2009 Topps David Murphy is my favorite shot of 2009. Even if that batboy headed to the plate is in an awkward place.
