my first inclination was that this was not a dp turn, and my second thought was why did chico walker have both the american and canadian flags on his helmet? i know gary carter used to do this, but he spent most of his career in montreal so it made sense to me that he would display both flags. walker, who was born in mississippi, did spend the 1989 season in the blue jays' system, but he played for their aaa team in syracuse. curious. in researching the flags, i was further confounded as walker spent only a short amount of time with the cubs in 1992, and was not involved in the type of play shown on the card during that season. in fact, the last two games in which he appeared as a cub came against the braves in chicago, but blauser did not have a play on him in either of those games. so, i figured it was a play from 1991, and determined that it is actually the same play as shown on his 1992 pinnacle card (his meaning blauser's). it looks like it occurred on july 26, 1991 when walker was picked off of first base and retired on the old 1-3-6 play in the bottom of the first. whew.
similarly, i received this 2008 upper deck first edition card of richie sexson
these next two are, however. a 2008 upper deck first edition omar vizquel
i had both of these cards from the flagship set, but not from first edition, so thanks pat!
of course, there were also a bunch of dodgers in the package, including a couple of double play cards for my dp binder. here's a 2006 fleer rafael furcal card
and then there were just some plain ol' dodgers, like nomar garciaparra and this 2007 upper deck future stars card
and this 1993 pinnacle jody reed card
a few days ago i thought that there were none.
thanks for the trade pat! i enjoyed going through all the cards.
