Wonderful Stack of Cards

I  previously mentioned my recent trade with Chris over at Nachos Grande, but I had not, at that time, had the opportunity to scan the cards that he sent over.  I still didn’t get all of them scanned, but the majority of them will be in this post.  I will, however, hold a couple back as they will be part of a new “series” of posts down the road.

First up, two cards that will fit nicely in my Red Sox player collection.

Nachos-Red Sox

2005 Upper Deck Classics #12, Bobby Doerr

2006 Pastime Pennants #14, Carl Yastrzemski

Both cards were needed for my player collections.  These are two Hall of Fame Red Sox players that don’t always get the recognition they deserve. While I like the look of the Yaz card more, I appreciate the Doerr card more, as I so few of his cards.

Nachos-JK

2001 Topps HD #9, Jason Kendall

1999 Topps Gallery #28, Jason Kendall

These are two much appreciated additions to my Kendall collection. (I just realized that if you say that out loud it sounds like Ken Doll collection) Both of these cards are great, but the ’01 Topps HD is about 1/4 of an inch thick.  With a plastic-like finish, I think that this card could be used as a coaster and not be any worse for the wear.  Great cards!

Nachos-JB

2005 Upper Deck Classics #56, Johnny Bench

2011 Topps Lineage #191, Johnny Bench

Here are two cards of the greatest catcher of all-time, Johnny Bench.  When I started this blog, I didn’t list him as one that I actively collect, but getting these and other cards over the past few months has swayed my opinion.  I now officially collect Johnny Bench.

Thanks again, Chris.  These are great cards.
