And the best thing of it all... the contents were baseball cards!
Also included was a late 1989 Peoria Chiefs set, which went 80 and 59. The Peoria Chiefs at the time were the Single-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs 1988 #1 draft pick, Ty Griffin, has a card in the set. Other notable names in the set include Matt Walbeck, Matt Franco and Alex Arias, but the cream of the crop was the Heathcliff Slocumb autograph!
There was plenty more '91 Upper Deck, which is a set that I absolutely love because of it's clean white borders and fantastic photography.
Bert Blyleven apparently collects baseball cards when he's not on the beach.
Brett Butler is flashing him the "loser" sign because he thinks The Cobra is silly for using a sledge.
Brian Downing didn't have nearly as much success with their respective attempts at-bat.
Who is Joe Slusarski?
Hey a Jeff Bagwell rookie! Nice!
Lastly, the metal box contained a slew of '91 Donruss, first and second series. There was about three hundred duplicates, and it was only about forty cards from being complete. A couple quick trades and a visit from Sportlots.com fixed that.
The set is now complete!
Thanks for the cards, Jeff! They have found a good home for sure!
