to my surprise, i found that our set included the phil garner reverse negative
other errors, the set had the corrected version of alan trammell's diamond king card (last name spelled correctly), but the error version of his base card (his last name spelled "trammel" on the front). we had the correct shane rawley card but the error juan eichelberger card. our card of the chicken was the correct version with the "tm" next to its name, but it was also signed.
to finish with the errors, our set had the error randy lerch card (showing him on the braves rather than the brewers), and there was no diamond kings checklist. i did order one off of sportlots, so we'll see if i get the error or corrected version. i also ordered another chicken card, but the site didn't differentiate between the other errors so i passed.
i found a couple of other cards that i hadn't thought about for a long time. here's rod carew's card in the set
here is probably my favorite card in the set. i was a fan of billy ball in oakland.
tommy lasorda's managerial cards were always a disappointment (other than the golf cart shot on his 1988 topps card and the multi-player jog on his 1992 topps card). after seeing the card above, i always hoped to see a card of lasorda doing what billy is doing, or at the very least giving out one of his bear hugs. no dice.
there are very few dodger cards showing them in their home park (mike scioscia is the only one that comes to mind), but there are a few reds cards that show dodger stadium in the background, like joe nolan
my dodger stadium mini collection have list. it's larger than i had thought.
there was at least one double play card that i hadn't yet added to my other mini collection, and that was of the immortal luis aguayo
i added craig reynolds' card to my double play collection, too
it looks like a dp turn, although i don't know why frank taveras would try to break up a dp with a head first slide. i think the photo is from spring training as i could find no play at baseball reference that would shed light on what was going on there, so like i said - it looks like a dp turn and i will consider it that until proven otherwise.
finally, i give you 34-year old bill stein's card.a post nine (nine!) years ago.
