76 AJ Styles (Champions subset)- Keeper!

Now for the main event…
2009 TriStar Obak retail!

60 Joe Wilhoit- 69 game hitting streak in 1919.
54 George H. Rawlings Mini- Of Rawlings Sporting Goods fame.
23 Buster Posey- 2008 Gold Spikes Award winner. Rich SOB, lol.
88 Patrick T. Powers- First Presidente of Minor League Baseball.
The info is from the card backs.
74 Alexander Cartwright- US Congress-credited inventor of baseball.
89 George H. Rawlings- Same guy as the mini, but different #… Umm, what?
27 Ted Williams Mini!- Began his pro career with the San Diego Padres of the Pacific Coast League. Ironic that the 2009 Padres are once again a minor league-caliber team.
Thank you, I’ll be here all week.
57 Grover Lowdermilk- Set the single season strikeout record of 465, between the Eastern Illinois and Three-I League, in 1906.

These cards are FLIMSY.
41 Ted Williams- Hmm… same as mini, but with different number again.
33 Stan Musial- Was in the minors from 1938-1941? Even the great ones had to start somewhere I guess.
60 John W. Heisman Mini- Atlanta Crackers President; the guy that college football trophy is named after.
4 Eric Hosmer- Has at least four of the mythical tools apparently.
20 Jesus Montero- Sooz-jo! Hopefully Hip-Hip-Jorge’s eventual replacement.
I’m forever replacing the word mojo with Sooz-jo. Sorry Mr. Hand.
Let me know if ya require any of the above that isn’t being kept or being sent to Sooz.
I have a couple more fat packs of American Heritage for another post. Still no pictures though. I’m really backed up when I get to the scanner too, so I dunno when I’ll be doing what. Sorry.
One other item of note, I received cards from Wicked Ortega today. Let’s just say after that, the number of scans I’ve gotta do went up by 10-15.
Finally, an impromptu prize (and maddest of props if you don’t have to look it up) to the first person to get the reference I made on the Cliff Lee card.
Until our next…
