Last weekend I went through my modest collection of 1993 Donruss – a set I realized I’m never going to get around to completing – and purged a bunch of cards which didn’t fit into any of my various collections.
What I’m sharing today are a bunch of cards which fit into a relatively new collection: “Too Cool To Purge”.
For the most part, I’ll let the cards do the talking.
This next card is an OK action shot, but I hung on to it for other reasons….
Lance Parrish… With the Mariners? Playing – I’m guessing – first base? This just looks so ODD.
The transaction listings from the last few years of Lance Parrish’s career are an interesting sight to see… After playing with the M’s in 1992, he went to the Dodgers (but didn’t play for them) to the Indians (10 games) to the Tigers (didn’t play for them this time around) to the Pirates (40 games) to the Royals (didn’t play for them) to the Blue Jays (110 games over two seasons) to the Pirates (didn’t play for them) to retirement.
OK, back to “letting the cards speak for themselves”…
Carlos Hernadez gets double-duty because I like the front…
…and the back.
…and the last card I’m sharing doesn’t really fall into the “Too cool to purge” category; I would’ve saved it just because it’s Bip.
I’m finding that the more sets I purge from my collection, the more I look at other sets and think “If I got rid of most of those cards, would I really miss them?”
…In other words, there will be more posts like this one in the future.
