Set: 1982 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #383 Terry Crowley

“ A huge improvement over the 81 set. Those palm trees behind Terry indicate they aren't in Baltimore, ah the beauty of spring training ” -addysdaddy

“ In late 1982-early 1983, the local candy wholesaler was begging me to buy boxes of 1982 Donruss from him for $3 a piece. I bought as many as I thought could sell at the time, probably a case's worth. Who knew that Cal Ripken mania would strike in the mid-1990's, causing boxes to sell for $100-$200? ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Was this guy really a player, or an attendee at an Orioles fantasy camp?! ” -wamk

“ you never see that these days on a card 1st base and outfield ” -Gregg

“ Mister Crowley .... DUH NUH NUHH!!! If only he stepped up to the plate with that song. ” -DanD

Set: 2000 Topps (Rate)

Card: #413 Vernon Wells

“ Vernon is apparently trying to lean the ball foul. ” - Scott Sawyer

“ The 2000 Topps set was better than its previous 2 or 3 predecessors. If not for the gray borders, it could have been even better. ” - PlayerPCCollector

“ Another Jay already? Not complaining. The back of the card shows V. Wells on his jersey since pitcher David Wells was on his second stint with Toronto. ” - DanD

Saturday, March 24, 2012

Set: 1996 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #435 Paul Quantrill

“ I like this card. Pretty simple, though the foil lettering probably looks better live. Seem to remember Quantrill being a reasonable pitcher, too. ” - wmcduff

“ If you ever needed proof that pitching is not a natural motion just look at what Paul is doing to his arm. ” - Scott Sawyer

“ A Canadian and a Jay!! What's not to like? ” - DanD
