The trade package I got in return had gems like these:
|2004 Topps Opening Day #130 Larry Walker|
|2000 Topps Opening Day #85 Chipper Jones|
|2007 Topps Opening Day #131 Orlando Cabrera|
|2004 UD Diamond All-Star #30 Preston Wilson|
Preston's swing has quite the follow-through, doesn't it?
Those were some of the newer cards he sent over, though there was a 2005 Opening Day (with blue foil) and a card from 2014 Update. There was a good bit of 1990s shininess as well.
|1996 Metal Universe #158 Bill Swift|
|1996 Fleer Tiffany # 373 Bruce Ruffin|
Couldn't hurt to show the matte base card of recent Hall of Fame inductee Craig Biggio, who holds the MLB record for most hit-by-pitches, surpassing Don Baylor shortly before his retirement.
|1996 Fleer #402 Craig Biggio|
|1995 Collector's Choice Silver Signature #443 Walt Weiss|
On the earliest Rockies and Marlins cards, it's common to find a player listed as a Rockie but shown in a previous uniform, like submariner Steve Reed as a Giant.
|1993 Fleer #414 Steve Reed (RC)|
|1993 Fleer Final Edition #F-40 Steve Reed|
|1993 Triple Play #154 Dante Bichette|
|1998 Fleer Ultra #145 Dante Bichette|
On the topic of well-attended stadiums, this last card shows Mile High Stadium packed to the gills with Rockies fans, where they played in 1993 and 1994 while Coors Field was under construction.
|1994 Score #650 Checklist / Colorado Rockies|
As usual, I had trouble narrowing this down to just a few cards, made more difficult by the few non-Rockies cards that snuck in here for illustrative purposes. Thanks for reading as I continue to catch up on trade posts from many new trading partners!
