John Kruk: 1994 Stadium Clug Dugout Dirt Members Only

This is the 1994 Stadium Club, Dugout Dirt, Members Only parallel card for John Kruk. Such a caricature nowadays might be frowned upon. There are twelve cards in this set. Do you have any of these?

This is a card I thought I had TWICE until I realized I didn't have it at all. I guess that makes me a dumbass? But actually what it came down to is sometimes buying cards on Sportlots burns you. Especially when an image doesn't accompany a listing. I got this last November-ish and cannot remember where from; but I do know I saw a picture of it before buying. Fool me once. Fool me twice. Etc. But actually, in my defense, there are 13 different Stadium Club cards for Kruk so it's a bit much to keep track of all of them! 


Thoughts on the trading deadline? It was pretty intense from my point of view. Lots of "big" name players changing uniforms. I'm particularly stung by the Scherzer & Turner trade from the Nationals to the Dodgers. I get it, it's business. But Scherzer's to good of a person for the Dodgers. And, well, at least now with Turner there the best shortstop (who'll move to second base) in the National League is finally on the West Coast. 

 Thanks for stopping by!

  1. It seems a lot of teams got better, but only one can win it in the end. It'll be fun watching it all unfold.
    One thing is certain: it will not be the Cubs. Yesterday was a tough day.

    1. It must have been a brutal day for you; and then to see Rizzo hit that homer. Sorry.

  2. I've probably seen or even held a few of these inserts before... without realizing it was an insert. Looked them up on COMC to see if I recognized any cards and found it interesting that some of these inserts like Bonds and Griffey have the words Dugout Dirt on the front of the card, while guys like Kruk and Ripken don't.

    1. Well, shit! I hadn't noticed that. Looks like cards 1-4 don't have it and 5-12 do. I don't know what to think or believe anymore.

  3. I have a few of the Dugout Dirt base cards but definitely none of the Members Only flavor.
