foldout cards kind of ticked me off when they first started showing up. what good are they if they are to remain folded up? i remember seeing some hard cases that would display the cards, but i'm a binder guy, not a hard case sort. it's a good thing, then, that i found some 3-pocket pages (not the postcard kind) that work well with these things.
have a look:
1. 2004 upper deck legends timeless teams team terrific game used hat logo relic (with bill russell, davey lopes, dusty baker, ron cey, and steve yeager) /50
2. 2004 upper deck legends timeless teams team terrific game used team logo relic (with bill russell, davey lopes, dusty baker, ron cey, and steve yeager) /85
3. 2009 topps sterling sterling season relic autographs /10
three cards that celebrate the teams of my youth - mainly the 1977 and 1978 pennant winning years. you know that i am a big fan of the timeless teams set, and i sure would like to find the other versions of that foldout relic card. there's a version with the timeless teams brand (/35) seared into the bat pieces as well as one with the national league logo (/15), and one with stats (/5) - although i'm not sure what the stats one looks like. i was a bit disappointed to find that the sterling card wasn't a patch card, but rather just material from the team's away jerseys during the time that they had color at the base of the sleeves.
here are the backs:
1. 2011 topps triple threads relic combos double (with duke snider, sandy koufax, clayton kershaw, andre ethier, and matt kemp) /36
2. 2013 panini america's pastime hitter's ink booklet (with tony gwynn) auto /25
i really should move that hitter's ink booklet to a 2-pocket page. i find it interesting that over steve garvey's career, he only had two teammates (for any substantial amount of time - i'm not counting the likes of jim bunning, hoyt wilhelm and frank robinson) who made the hall of fame - don sutton and tony gwynn. and with this gwynn card, i have dual auto cards for garvey and both of those teammates.
