I do not remember those so orange. Anyone remember the contest? Grand prize was $10k and a trip for 4, with hotel, to the 1991 All-Star game. Frist prize: $500 and a trip for 4 to Cooperstown. 2nd was a Rawlings baseball glove. 3rd, an official 1991 All Star cap. 4th netted you a baseball and 5th was 5 packs of Donruss. Value of those 5 packs? $2.50. Ahhhhh, the good ol' days. But I am getting off tracks. 16 cards and the famous Donruss puzzle piece, with Yaz being the star this year.
Mike Bielecki, Pat Shields, Bob Kipper and Boever. The lighting on the Sheridan and the Kipper is pretty poor. Boever looks WAY too happy.
Jeff Reed, Bip Roberts, Tom Brunansky and Randy Ready. Wow.....someone wake me up.
Joey Belle, Greg Hibbard, Jamie Moyer and Bryan Harvey. A pre-Albert, a nice White Sox, a 5th year Moyer (which would make him like 42 or 43 years old on the card) and a nobody.
Rex Hudler, Mike Gallego, Steve Farr and Brad Komminsk. By the way - the font totally sucks on these cards. The names are tough to read. The Hudler is nice in that I seem to see just the blue road Expos unis on cards. The whites looked much nicer.
Bryan Harvey had a handful of good seasons with the Angels. He led the league in saves one year. Then again any reliever not named Rivera has a decent chance of being a 'nobody'. ;-)
I agree about Harvey. He was also the first "star" pitcher for the expansion Marlins. Oddly enough in 1990 I guarantee you more people thought Bryan Harvey would be a more memorable star than Jamie Moyer who seemed like he was not long for the big leagues.
I miss seing those Expos uniforms.
As an Angel fan I was all set to jump on the comments and defend Harvey. You guys beat me to it.
Who knows how long Harvey would go if he didn't hurt his arm. He was one premier closers in the early 90s.
That Belle is a rookie.
The only reason I bust those packs from repack boxes is for the Tom Glavine card with a picture of John Smoltz (or is it the other way around?). Anyway, I want one.
I might still have one of those Glavine/Smoltz cards. I'll have to check.
