these cards all came from a dime box at one of the two local card shops in the twin cities. i spent a few minutes digging through the boxes in the front of the store and found some cards for some of my collections.
this 1998 donruss preferred rickey henderson
doesn't really fit any of my current collections (although i used to have a pc of rickey), but i couldn't pass up a rickey card showing him in an angels uni. besides, it has that o-pee-chee-esque text on the back
2007 upper deck
2009 upper deck team leaders
i grabbed another angel card from the box, thinking it might be a double play. upon further inspection, this 2010 topps brandon wood card is not a dp turn
on this particular play, there were two outs with michael young on first. wood fielded the grounder hit by marlon byrd and threw to first to end the inning (thanks baseball reference - also confirmed by getty images). the card does show the nick adenhart memorial patch, but i've got vladdy representing that in the binder.
most of my other sub-collections were added to - here's a 1992 fleer kenny lofton card featuring an image from dodger stadium
carter's fantastic final tribute from 1993 score select. speaking of 1993 score select, here's brian harper's card from that set, featuring a lurking mark mcgwire
but the best play at the plate card i found was this 1992 upper deck johnny bench baseball heroes card
i understand that online sales are a big part of the card business - i do most of my shopping and all of my selling online - but it was a turnoff for me to experience that in a brick and mortar lcs. i may purchase cards from this shop in the future, but if i do, it will be through sportlots.
