Anyway, the first time I saw a 92 Donruss Mc Donald's MVP Blue jays card, I knew I needed to get the rest of the set. I picked one up for 50 cents (plus $5 shipping, which seems a little silly, but it's still worth it), and I have to admit that it's close to perfect. The lineup has no flaws, and the Blue Jays gold series is a great idea. Donruss knew how to go full bleed in 92. What a shocker. The backs of the cards are the same as the regular issue, save for the mac donald's logo and copyrights, but the fronts are different.
Jack's mustache looks so much better in a gold frame.
Also got that autograph for cheap. Accardo may have had a clear path to greatness, but he was stopped short by injuries. He did have a good year for Toronto though. I have mixed feelings about that card. It's acetate and transparent so it kind of has a nice look to it, but it's way too dark, and that sticker doesn't help its case. Ah well.
Those I bid on and I don't even know why. They look nice though, even if I have no idea who these players are.
Finally, to avoid looking at the Knicks play, I decided to look for autos. The good thing about a horrendous season is that you can pick them up for cheap. I had never heard of Toure Murry before, and those Shumpert cards sure are shiny. Panini really likes shiny stuff.
I can't help but wonder how Charlie Ward would have fared in the NFL. He was, after all, a Heisman Award winner (among others, and he's in the College Football hall of fame). He had a decent career as a point guard for the Knicks for ten years, so I'm happy I landed that card. Jordan Hill hardly played for the Knicks, on the other hand, and he's having some solid last couple of years in the league. The only very frustrating thing about that card is that I have no idea which L it is, in his name.
