John Kruk: 1991 O-Pee-Chee

Sacre bleu! 1991 OPC, like 1990 before it, is somewhat hard to distinguish the OPC name didn't appear on the front of the card? No, instead you have to look at the copyright line on the card back. Or, possibly, French. Or both.

This was a re-do as I realized I was missing the OPC version of the card. I am sure I had it at one point, but likely got ride of it thinking it was a dupe. Because I'm a dope.

And, finally, the AL West players that I like:  (just wish he was healthy)
Anaheim Angels of Los Angeles Anaheim California: Anthony Rendon
Houston Assholes: I guess Michael Brantley? But, really, no one.
Oakland Athletics: Mike Fiers, I guess, but really no one. 
Seattle Mariners: Kyle Seager, I guess
Texas Rangers: Nate Lowe (we share a birthday)

Ugh, sorry for the above. It's a largely bleh division. 

Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. Now that Vogelbach left the AL West they could stop playing baseball and I don't know if I would notice.

    1. I don't like feeling the division is blah, but I can't help it. Which is a shame as the Astros are still so hate-able and the Angels just serial under-performers.

  2. Love this set... but would have loved it more had they used the OPC logo on the front.

    Anaheim Angels of Los Angeles Anaheim California: Shohei Ohtani
    Houston Assholes: Jose Altuve
    Oakland Athletics: Ramon Laureano
    Seattle Mariners: Yusei Kikuchi
    Texas Rangers: Khris Davis

    1. Thanks for these players. Wonder if Davis leaving Oakland freed you up for Laureano, or if he'd've been your guy regardless!

    2. It's kinda hard choosing favorite players as an A's fan, because you never know how long they'll be with the team. Ramon Laureano is really the first guy who stood out to me in years, because of some of his defensive highlights. As for Davis, I liked him with the A's, but he wasn't my favorite. Probably would have even put Chapman ahead of him. But now that he's with the Rangers, he doesn't have any competition. ;D
