Yankees cards coming to life

One of the coolest blogs out there, Baseball Cards Come to Life!, recently sent me a great trade package. Bo runs a very cool blog, complete with some awesome player interviews and #walletcard posts. I wish I had his ability to notice so many cool things in NYC. I probably walk by so many each day that I never take the time to notice. Bo does.
It all started with this card, the 5x7 Zenith Tino. I didn't have this one, so jumped at that chance.
Bo also protected these cards in a fun way:
I'm glad Pat LaFontaine was a Ranger for a short time. I remember watching their team quite a bit when he was there.

To me, the best part about the trade package was how random it was, and I mean that in a good way. It was filled with cards from all years, many from sets I don’t remember or had forgotten about. Here are a few cards that stuck out to me:
Topps 206 was one set I missed as a kid, but I do recall there being several versions of each card, as on display here:
SI Yankees!
There were a bunch of Classic cards, including the ones featuring the Saved By The Bell design. I thought I was being original by calling it that but it looks like this is well known by Night Owl and every other blogger.
How have I never seen this Prime Time card? It’s great, although that looks like a brutal sun. Good concentration, Deion.
And I can effectively say, this is my first card of Meatloaf. Wonder if he signs TTM?
Bo, such a fun package. Thank you so much!


  1. Man, that's a pretty great ensemble of cool cards. I never knew that there were Master Photos for hockey though. Hmm...

  2. Love Bo's wallet card posts! That Zenith is sweet. Personally... I think the 1998 Pinnacle Zenith Dare to Tear cards are one of the most under-appreciated products from the 90's.

  3. Nice cards. I sent that Meat Loaf card to out ttm years ago with no return yet. So long ago I don't even have record of the address I used or exact date, just that I did in 2012.

  4. Those master photos are very cool; I've held on to a bunch of them for over 20 years. Where on Earth did Bo find that Ziploc Yogi?
