COMC Challenge Cards Part 15: Baseball and Hockey

Surprisingly, the lowest number of additions to my 2/14 collection will be added to the two categorioes that are the most populous. I'm not sure why it worked out that way, but if I were to guess it would have something to do with the general lack of availability of those cards here and the greater availability at COMC.

Anyhow, enough of that, time to show off some more cards!
This is my second Derek Norris auto/relic from the most recent Triple Threads set. I added this one for the grand total of about $5.00 credit. I am puzzled though as to why a card numbered to 18 copies uses a sticker autograph and my first pick-up, a card numbered to /50 uses an on-card autograph. The nice green swatch makes up for that oddity.
The second baseball addition is a debut, with Darrell Osteen moving into the binder. Darrell has 3 cards, all of which are Rookie Stars cards. This is his third such appearance, having shared the previous 2 with Lee May.

As for hockey, this one dropped off my Top 10 list through the Challenges.
I'm a sucker for Heritage-ish designs. Or Vintage, as the case may be.
And to wrap things up, here's a card from the German Upper Deck set, featuring Jan Nemecek wearing more ads than your average NASCAR vehicle.

Total cards in the binder now - 729.
