I got 15 2003 Topps Tribute glossy cards. There were more in the box, but I skipped over the modern (1980s or more recent) and focused on the old timers. In retrospect, I probably should have grabbed them all because I really like these cards and wouldn't mind putting the set together. I chose this Fisk card, with it's iconic image, as the representative in recognition of the Red Sox seemingly inevitable march towards World Series victory.
Because I hate the Red Sox, I had to sooth my soul with this Upper Deck bat relic, also featuring an iconic image of Bucky Dent crossing the plate after hitting a clutch home run in the 1978 one game playoff for the AL East title .
2012 Panini Golden Age Rusty Staub bat relic. Lately, I like finding cheap relics of great players. There is no rhyme or reason to what I look for or get. Just a good player and a design that appeals to me.
2014 Panini Hindu back Joe Jackson Mini.
2015 Panini Royale Crown die cut Hack Wilson (43/75). Interestingly the surface of this card is actually a shiny silver even though it scanned blue.
This is from the 2004 Upper Deck Yankee Classics set. I built this set back when I first got into collecting. I had bought a box and got three autographs in the box, but no one to elicit a big reaction: Kevin Maas, Don Baylor, and Rick Cerone. It might be fun to add more autographed cards from this set, but it isn't something I am going to prioritize.
