A Shoebox of Baseball Cards: California/Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

To be honest, I wasn't sure whether to post this under California, Anaheim, or Los Angeles and so decided to post it under California, which is what the teams name was back when these cards were in production. These Angels teams finished solidly in the middle of the AL West pack from 1988 to 1995, though with two outstanding last place finishes in 1991 and 1994.

1988 Donruss: Mike Witt, Wally Joyner, Brian Downing
1988 Topps: Brian Downing, Gus Polidor
1989 Donruss: Brian Downing
1989 Score: DeWayne Buice
1989 Topps: Jim Eppard, Jack Lazorko
1989 Upper Deck: DeWayne Buice 1990 Fleer: Brian Downing
1990 Score: Kirk McCaskill TRADED, Brian Downing
1990 Topps: Greg Minton, Willie Fraser
1991 Donruss: Jack Howell (2), Dick Schofield (3)
1991 Fleer: Dick Schofield, Angels Team Logo Sticker
1991 Score: Dante Bichette, Devon White, Scott Lewis, Gary DiSarcina, Chili Davis, Jack Howell (2)

1993 Donruss: Reggie Williams
1993 Pinnacle: Julio Valera
1993 Score: Junior Felix TRADED
1993 Score Select: Bryan Harvey
1993 Upper Deck: Jim Abbott (Community Heroes)
1994 Fleer Ultra: Joe Grahe
1994 Score: Luis Polonia, Steve Frey (2)
1994 Upper Deck Collector's Choice: Hilly Hathaway
1995 Score: Chris Turner, Rex Hudler

I wonder if Bichette means "Little Bitch" or "Small Bitch"?

Like the other cards - a lot of nobodies in here but if anyone wants any of them let me know. I predict there will be more interest in that Fleer sticker than in any of the players.  Do you like these place-mats better than the solid red ones?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I should have looked through your lists.
    I see a couple McCaskill cards I need for my Canadians collection.

  2. I can use the 92 Triple Play Parish, and the 93 Select Harvey.

    1. Oh and the Fleer sticker. I collect those, so if you have any from other teams/years I'll take em!
