And, as is quite common practice for the great collectors I've met out 'here' in the Internet ether - he knew I was a Yankees fan and sent along a great smattering of bonus Yanks! Here were my two favorites, sticky mini's of Rickey and Rags!

The Henderson is '88 Topps and the Righetti is '84 Fleer, if I remember correctly. So very cool. Here are the rest of the Yankees and the very helpful singles from my Sets NEEDS lists.
The Gardner that you can barely make out was one of a few 2010 Heritage that Steve sent that are my first, since I had only gotten back into the hobby last spring. I instantly loved them, of course - but I am a Heritage lush and it's probably for the best that I just.....leave that set......alone......

Not sure why the last caption went right-to-left. Martin and Strawberry are both Yankeedodgers and they are both in my VERY small collection of certified autograph cards (neither of which show them as Yankees). What's up with that? A good idea for a post. Love that All-Star game photo of Straw Man's leg-kick! OH, what might have been for Mattingly's fellow "Slugger from the Left Side".....
The Set NEEDS lists are updated, folks. Thanks for the great trade, Steve! I look forward to our next opportunity.
Thanks for reading!
