i've got a case of the mondays

not really a case, just three cards of former dodger rick monday.  the first one is a relatively new addition to my collection, and it comes from 2014 panini prizm
yes, that's mo in dodger gear and a sticker auto.  last year, panini released some autographed cards of monday as a cub and i didn't bite.  i was happy to see this release this year.

here's a 1987 mother's cookies a's card of the first overall draft pick in the first ever amateur draft
i believe that the a's recognized their all-stars throughout their time in oakland in the 1987 set rather than their current roster.  monday was a member of the all-star team in 1968 which was also the first year that the a's were in oakland.  he wouldn't make it to the midsummer classic again until 1978 when he started the game as a dodger.  love the sanitarys, by the way.

speaking of which, here is his 1983 fleer card, just because.
always good to see half of steve yeager.

unlike the boomtown rats, i do like mondays.  especially in dodger blue.
