Merry Kinsmas

Kin, the indefatigable man behind Bean's Ballcard Blog and Twitter, send me a Kinsmas present the other day chock full of Darryl Strawberry and John Kruk cards which have gratefully been incorporated into my collection. There was more, though than just Kruk and Strawberry. Here's a full list:

Darryl Strawberry, 1987 Fleer Star Stickers, Card #114
Darryl Strawberry, 2018 Topps Silver Pack, Card #71
George Brett, 2018 Stadium Club, Card #242
Francisco Mejia, 2018 Stadium Club, Card #155
Paul Blackburn, 2018 Stadium Club, Card #77
Niko Goodrum, 2018 Stadium Club, Card #26
Darryl Strawberry, 2012 Topps Archives, Card #129
John Kruk, 1994 Donruss, Card #7 (3)
Darryl Strawberry, 1989 Topps, Card #300
John Kruk, 1990 Score, Card #467
John Kruk, 1989 Donruss, Card #86
Darryl Strawberry, 1989 Donruss Bonus MVP's, Card #BC-6
John Kruk, 2016 Topps Archives, Card # 240
Jedd Gyorko, 2016 Topps, Card #40
John Kruk, 1994, Leaf Limited, Card #138
John Kruk, 1994 SP, Card #138 (3)

That's how they came out of the packet and in my scans, of course, I reversed them so they look a bit backwards and all over the place; and some even went askew because of air. Stupid air. What does air even do anyway? Right, anyway... A few of these were missing from my collection so they are very most welcome new additions!!  Here they are:

Thank you so much Kin for thinking of me with these cards. You're the bestest!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. No idea how the Gyorko got in there! LOL

    1. Ha ha. If it was meant for someone else DM me on Twitter and I can forward it on!

  2. I really like that 1994 Leaf Limited set... although I can't explain why. Everything about my collecting history points towards me disliking that design (if you can call foil with holographic foil a design).
