2) Please continue to note anything that you want, especially if you have any team/player requests for football or basketball. I am starting to hit some of those cards and have nothing to do with most of them at this point.
That being said...here comes Box 1, Layer 3!
Starting Lineups continue to be well-represented in this first box. 16 more of them here. I hope this guy still has all of these figurines on a shelf in his bedroom. Maybe I will text him back and ask him? :-) Looks like he had a penchant for running backs...
There were a few Team USA women's Stadium Club cards:
President #39 Habitating for Humanity:
1) Cards with Kids
2) A nice Ichiro insert. I suspect they developed this whole subset to give him another insert card.
3) That's not where the glove goes, Barry.
4) Flair Giants Rookie...#'d.
5) Another program for Night Owl
6) Food Issue: Ritz/Oreo "Red" Derek Jeter
7) This card is Swell!
8) Glavine with rotational symmetry
9) Young, Dodger-y Konerko
A few football cards of note:
1) This card is beautiful in person. It's lenticular, die-cut, and heavy. That's a keeper.
2) This Johnnie Morton has a VERY faint watermark irl, but the scanner makes it look like Morton is Hester Prynne. 1 of 499 (not SN#'d) -- It's from the 1996 Anaheim National. Wish they would bring the show back out here! (side note: "Devin Hester Prynne" might have to be my new Fantasy Football name if I decide to change from "Orange Julius Peppers.")
3) Another scanner fail...this is a refractor-y Faulk.
4) Hmmm.....what's this? Looks OLD. No date on the back. Googling.... It's a 1969! New record for the "vintagest" card so far, beating out 1981 Ron Cey by a full decade-plus.
Underneath the Roy Hilton, I pulled these three cards:
Huh?? What set is this? These look old, too. Must research...
Here's the backs.
This set is called "1970 Fleer Laughlin World Series", as the artwork was done by Robert Laughlin originally for a self-published set in 1968, which he revised in color for Fleer to sell in 1970. So Roy Hilton is still the elder statesman for this box. Now I have three 1970s, too. Those are for trade if anyone needs them.
Also in this box I picked up the last LEGO basketball card I needed, another Hawaii baseball player, a couple Barry Larkins and Cal Ripkens for folks who requested them, and a whole mess of 1990 Topps and other junk wax which I have spared you the agony of looking at. For the aforementioned football and basketball, I have big stacks of 1999-2000 Topps Basketball and 2001 Football (Fleer Focus, UD Legends).
Here's all the sets (with material memberships) that came in this 3rd level of the box -- 1,200 cards in this one!
