Paul Konerko – 2009 Topps #506

Great action shot considering Paulie isn’t know for his defense.  Well, he is, but just not really outside of Chicago.  But it’s a cool shot all the same.

Octavio Dotel – 2009 Topps Career Best jersey #’d 98/99 #CBR-OD

I had a love/hate relationship with Dotel.  He was either on or off, there was no in between with him.  I like this card because of the gray background.  I like White Sox cards that use gray or black because they always look good with the black uniforms.

Tom Seaver – 1986 Topps glossy #22

I used to love these little All-Star sets back in the day.  All kinds of all-stars and hall of famers in them.  Topps put out a couple a year for a little while.  I think you had to mail something in to get these but I’m not positive about that.

Billy Williams – 1973 Topps #200

My first random PC card of Billy Williams and it’s of my birth year set.  Nothing exciting as it’s a head shot but like I said before, it’s a special set for myself.

Paul Konerko – 2001 Topps Chrome #96

2001 was the last full year I collected the second time I collected (there’s been a few times).  I remember buying packs of these.  Nothing too flashy, never cared for the green border but it is chrome and it is Konerko so it has that going for it.

Tom Seaver – 1992 Pacific Tom Terrific #79

Like I said the last time I posted one of these Pacific cards, there’s a bunch.  This one celebrates his 8 national league selections.  I’m not sure why it specifies national league since he only made the all-star game as a national league player.  He was in the american league for the last 3 years of his career but didn’t make the all-star game.

Tom Seaver – 1984 Donruss #116

I believe half of my Random PC card posts have been Tom Seaver so far.  This one is a the base card from Donruss in 1984.  Action shot is a plus, not an overly impressive design.  I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it either.

Greg Mathews – 2010 Sage HIT autographs silver #A23

What?  A Michigan Wolverines card here?  I know, I know but I think Dennis would forgive me since it’s for my random card posts.  For those that don’t know, my Michigan stuff is usually posted at “Too Many Manninghams” so check that blog out for a few of my cards and a lot of Dennis’ awesome Maize and Blue cards.

I like getting cards of players that I watched at Michigan and Greg Mathews falls into that category.  He wasn’t the most spectacular receiver in Wolverines history but he was pretty consistent when the ball was thrown his way.  I like the Sage and Press Pass autographs, but that’s mainly because they are always in college uniforms.

Tom Seaver – 1992 Pacific Tom Terrific #78

I don’t remember who, I believe it was a reader and not a blogger sent me this whole set in a trade.  I believe it’s a 110 card set, all of Seaver.  It obviously boosted my Tom Seaver Collection when I got it but I really like a lot of these cards.
