there was a time when i considered becoming a nomar garciaparra supercollector. i did have a pc going of his cards during the late 1990's and into the early 2000's, but those were mostly cards that i pulled from packs - i didn't go out and actively seek cards of his to add to my collection. that all changed when he signed with the dodgers prior to the 2006 season. i figured that i would go after all of his non-red sox cards. that task was made easier by the fact that nomar didn't bother to re-up with topps after the 2006 season, but it turned out that there were still way too many releases and inserts and parallels for me to keep up with.
here are a few that i did track down, including an insert from 2006 upper deck epic that features him (mostly) as a red sox player.
there's a smaller picture of him as a dodger on the card so it's ok. there's really no team collector dilemma this time. and, here's his completely dodger-iffic base card from the epic set
here are a couple of photoshopped cards from 2006 topps finest - base
his card in the flagship 2006 upper deck series 1 set was him in cubs gear listed as a dodger. so, i was please to see that he was put on the team checklist in the upper deck update series in real dodger apparel
i'm not sure what was being predicted, but whatever the reason, upper deck made some parallels. another ud parallel from 2007 were the red backs in their goudey release. here's nomar's
at least there were no 2007 topps red letter backs of nomar to chase. here are a few more - a 2007 upper deck spx die cut base card
