Got a free pack of 1990 Donruss cards yesterday, just for printing out a coupon and going to a local card shop (Bullseye Collectibles in Merrick, Long Island) and signing up for the mailing list. (For any readers on Long Island who are interested, here's a link to the coupon.) While I was there, I also picked up some .50 packs of common cards from 1994 Donruss and Score and 1995 Pinnacle and Classic Draft Pick.

I was pleasantly suprised that five of the sixteen cards in the 1990 Donruss pack were ones I didn't have, since I have more than two-thirds of the set. My favorite from the pack is Kal Daniels, with some random rope barriers behind home plate at Jack Murphy Stadium.

Recently I posted a Donruss card of light-hitting Oriole Brady Anderson posing with six bats. Here's a Donruss card of light-hitting Oriole Damon Buford posing with six bats.

The Pinnacle pack had a lot of Yankees, which is surprising because usually places like this will pull out all the Yankees and Mets. Here's a great picture of Yankee catcher Mike Stanley.

The 1994 Scores included a bunch of checklist cards with very nice stadium shots. Here's one of Montreal. It's a little hard to tell from the small picture, but it's an exciting moment in the game with two runners going on contact. Which must make it very irritating to the fans that two idiots in the front can't wait until after the pitch to get up.

The Classic pack, interestingly, was the only which was mostly dupes, if anyone is interested in a trade - I now have two dupes of the Garciaparra rookie in his Georgia Tech uniform.
