Cards from Johnny's Trading Spot

Got some cool cards in a trade with Johnny's Trading Spot. He hit a variety of my want lists but also was looking to get move some of the many 1996 Fleer Updates he got in his recent big deal. I was happy to take a bunch of them off his hands. It's fun getting cards from a mid-90's update set and see players in very unfamiliar uniforms.

Pat Borders played for the Blue Jays for the first seven years of his career, then bounced around eight teams over the next ten years, including 26 games for the Cardinals in 1996.
 Stanky the Expo? Though he is best known as a Yankee, the fan favorite actually played in more games as an Expo than a Yankee, though he was never a regular in Montreal.
 Best known as a Padre and a Red, Bip Roberts ended his career by playing with four AL teams over three years.
 Roger McDowell and Jesse Orosco were co-closers when the Mets won the World Series in 1986. Orosco was later a prominent member of the Orioles bullpen in the mid-1990s, but I didn't remember McDowell being there with him. He ended his career in Baltimore in 1996 and unlike Orosco did not pitch for them in the playoffs against the Yankees.
