Seems Appropriate

I'm on such a high right now, sleep won't be coming too fast without the assistance of drugs, so I guess now is as good a time as any to reach into my COMC box and post some Blue Jays cards. Unfortunately, I have no Mets cards in that box, so that doesn't bode well. But there is my "cards from Too Many Manninghams" box as backup, should it be needed.
I love that some of the autographs in Panini's Cooperstown set included non-players who are among the inducted. While I'm certain there are collectors that would be not be happy to pull an auto of a GM, I'm more than happy to get a good price an auto of a Jays Hall of Famer (he is listed as with Toronto on the back of the card).
Diegomar Markwell, on the other hand, never made it above AA ball. It is still a Jays autograph though, and I'll add it to the hits binder. Even though I only got because of the nice view of the stadium in Dunedin behind him.
I've got several of these Fire Safety sets, and I use them to fill in the gaps in my "Every Jay Ever" collection. While Brenly does have an appearance in 1989 Bowman, those are a pain to store in box or binder form. This is a much better option to commemorate his half season in Toronto.
Sal Butera didn't even have the Bowman option. This was his only Jays card (unless you count Syracuse Chiefs minor league cards).
At least Carlos Diaz got a Topps card. This was his only card that recognizes his 3 AB and 1 hit in the bigs.

And there you have it.

  1. You can get some really good deals on those Panini Cooperstown autographs. As of today... there are a bunch in the $6 to $10 range, but I've actually seen a few on COMC for less than $5.
