Two weeks ago, he shipped me a package of Oakland A's and San Jose Sharks cards for my collection. Here's a sampling of some of my favorites:
I love me some 90's inserts and oddballs. I've never seen that 1994 Ultra Firemen Dennis Eckersley before... that's a truly amazing card.
Another card that stood out was this 1969 Topps Ted Kubiak:
#1 In 1961, the Kansas City Athletics signed Kubiak as a free agent.
#2 On Friday, April 14th, 1967 Kubiak made his MLB debut when he pinch hit for Phil Roof.
#3 Kubiak shares the Milwaukee Brewers' single game RBI record (7) with two other players.
#4 He was part of the Oakland A's teams that won three consecutive World Series in a row ( 1972, 1973, and 1974).
#5 After his playing career, Kubiak went on to manage several minor league teams, including the Modesto A's.
Thank you for the cards Underdog Card Collector. I'll try to find some more Gwynns and fellow Padres players to add to your collection.
Happy Friday and sayonara!
