Martinez Knoblauch Jeter Brosius
Got an awesome package of Yankees from Garvey Cey Russell Lopes this week - 800 cards of Yankee awesomeness. Most were in the Martinez-Knoblauch-Jeter-Brosius era, which was great for me since I wasn't collecting much in those days. Come October we'll see if Teixeira-Cano-Jeter-Rodriguez can match them.
A couple of highlights:
A Gary Sheffield bat card. My first every Yankee bat card - cool!
Shiny! I sure am a sucker for those Upper Deck holograms. Or any shiny card for that matter.
This is a pretty awesome card. In O'Neill's first couple of years as a Yankee, before Yankee Stadium was routinely sold out every night, you really did have fans holding those target signs for him. Maybe, given the smaller dimensions at the new Yankee Stadium, we can get fans in the first row with signs like damOn or pOsada. Maybe an arOd sign in left.
