Jim Thome – 2009 Upper Deck Spectrum swatches relic #SS-JT

Jim Thome is an all around great guy and he is now working in the front office so I expect that eventually he’ll end up as a hitting coach or something.  I like these spectrum cards, although you can’t see it in the scan, they are very shiny and with this card you get a hint of a pinstripe in there.

Paul Konerko – 2011 Topps Attax #169

I never played the Attax game, just picked up cards that I needed here or there.  I would assume most, if not all, came from trades.  I don’t think I’ve ever gotten any packs of them.

Tom Seaver – 1985 Fleer Star Sticker #70

You can tell by the scan that these stickers are smaller than an actual card.  I don’t remember what the books looked liked but I have 6 of these stickers that when put together, show his pitching motion a sticker at a time.  This is the 3rd of the 6.
