Show and Tell #60: Stats on the Back Giveaway

I finally got my stuff together and took advantage of Mark from Stats on the Back giveaway and claimed a bunch of collections that sat for a while with no one willing to take them.

My favorite individual card is this J.R. Richard/Nolan Ryan combo card. I'm a big fan of J.R. and this is one I didn't have yet.

1980 Topps #206 J.R. Richard/Nolan Ryan 1979 Strikeout Leaders


I grabbed up Marks' Matt Williams collection because Matt W. is the best baseball player to ever be named "Matthew" and my name is Matt.

1994 Flair #448 Matt Williams
1993 Flair #148 Matt Williams

I've recently come to have a new found appreciation for 1997 Score with its lower case type and clean design and I think I will try to find a box of this to break on eBay. Their are a couple that are available for $19.95 and $21.00.

1997 Score #238 Matt Williams


1994 Pinnacle #298 Matt Williams


I also picked up groups of cards of Bert Blyleven, Tom Glavine, and Mike Mussina.

Someday I'll do a post of all the different positions that Bert Blyleven's tongue takes in his cards.

1986 Donruss Highlights #31 Bert Blyleven


I think this has got to be the best card from the 1991 Fleer set. I challenge you to find a better one.

1991 Fleer #689 Tom Glavine


Even more great cards from the 1997 Score set.

1997 Score #154 Mike Mussina

Thanks Mark!

The Alfredo Griffin card from '91 Fleer is better.
