I am slightly behind with these posts and I do apologize for that. I received a package from Night Owl a couple days ago as well. I got a great chunk of cards towards many sets I am working on. Here's just a little bit of what I got here.
First I received four 2008 Goudey's toward my set. I have chosen the David Eckstein card because I believe he is very under-rated. I think he is a much better player than everyone makes him out to be and is also a great presence in the clubhouse. I would still rather have him playing 2nd base for the Mets than Castillo. There were rumors of this last offseason but they failed to happen.
Next we have a 2008 Topps Heritage Eric Chavez. I received seven 08 Heritage cards towards this set. Once a very good player, Eric has seen his numbers plummet in the past few years and has only played in 113 games the past two seasons and only has 430 AB over that time frame. He never really hit for average but did hit for power. Here's hoping he can turn it around.
Next we have 2008 Topps Updates and Highlights Evan Longoria. I got 15 cards from this set. The Rays could not have made their historic run this year without the help of third baseman Evan Longoria. It really is a shame they fell just short of winning it all. Not only because that means they lost to the Phil's, rrrrr frickin Phils, but also with the additions that the Yankees have already made and the possible additions in Boston its going to hard for the Rays to repeat their "Miracle" year.
Lastly we have a 1986 Topps Pete Rose. Good ol' Charlie Hustle. This guy deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. Everything he has done on the field for the sport of baseball far outweighs anything he's done off it!!! Thats all I have to say about that.
In addition to the cards mentioned above. Night owl also sent me some 89 Donruss and 89 Fleer. Again all lists have been updated. I want to say thank you again to Night Owl and let him know that I have some more 2008 Topps Heritage that he needs and they will be out to him shortly.
