John Kruk: 1993 Inaugural Marlins and Rockies

I have to say, having these "Inaugural" cards for the Marlins and Rockies, for Strawberry and Kruk, feels really cool. I think I like the Marlins one better. Which might be the first time in history someone's said "I think I like the Marlins one better". What about you? Have you got any of these for your PCs?


The front of the 1993 card is lovely. Sometimes I think it's divine. I really do love it. The back of the Topps card is, I feel, at best, a train wreck. 

I wonder if there are collector's out there who collect baseball cards with visible tobacco containers in the players back pockets?

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I've got a handful of the Marlins ones, including the Trevor Hoffman rookie-if-you-don't-count-Bowman and David Cone. Never see the Rockies ones at shows, which I'm guessing has to do with the fact that I live in the East.

    1. Nice that you have the Hoffman. I never knew these kinds of cards existed before I saw them on Trading Card Database. And my collecting of Strawberry and Kruk means I have to online shop. Mostly because I'm also not, at this time, comfortable going to shops & shows to sift through boxes.

  3. Nice! These have actually been tough Tinos for me to track down.
