earlier today, i posted some of the cards that fellow twin-citian brian (he of the highly subjective and completely arbitrary blog) sent my way. there are more to be shown and enjoyed. like this 1998 upper deck collector's choice of raul mondesi signing autographs at dodger stadium on photo day.
photo day, which used to be called camera day back when i was a kid, is when fans can arrive early and go on to the field (stay behind the barriers, folks) as the players walk slowly by and stop to pose for a picture of sign an autograph or two. the first time i ever went on the field at dodger stadium was on photo/camera day circa 1979. i've been on the field once or twice since then, but only for concerts.
here's a 1995 topps stadium club card of delino deshields also signing autographs
also from 1995 topps stadium club, here's a close up of a concerned looking eric karros
or maybe he is trying to figure out who is on the front of this 1998 topps mystery interleague match-up card
brian included a few inserts from 2015 topps series 2, which is nice because i haven't bought much of that product. here's melissa mccarthy getting ready to throw the first pitch at dodger stadium
2015 topps adrian gonzalez stepping up insert
2015 topps yasiel puig hot streak insert
it would be nice for puig to get on a hot streak again sometime.
brian also hit a couple of peculiarities in my collection. this is a non-dodger dodger card from 2005 donruss throwback threads of kazuhisa ishii
brian also sent along this 1995 topps stadium club carlos garcia card
thanks brian! i'll get a return package out to you soon!
