Wes' Big Ol' Cube o' Cardboard - Part 2

Aloha, everybody, 

Yesterday we saw the first part of highlights from the cardboard pummeling I received from good ol' Wes. We now commence with Part 2 - RELICS, SWATCHES and AUTOGRAPHS...


First up is a beautiful patch card numbered 1379/1430 (14-30?). I love everything about this card, including the no-name scrub who lends his likeness to it. 


This is because our scrub pitcher bookends two big trades that I remember as a Dodgers fan. First, he came to the Dodgers (along with Brian Jordan) in the trade that sent Gary Sheffield to the Braves. Second, he was quickly shipped off to Oakland for Milton Bradley. 

Speaking of ex-Dodgers who've been shipped off to obscurity...


Here's a very low edition, low numbered (7/36), well-designed, Triple Threads...


 In a bizarro reverse situation, here comes Carl Crawford, who came to LA, and THEN found obscurity...


And now, the big boys...

My first swatch from Yasiel Puig, and it's super low numbered 3/99...



I showed this one off on Twitter earlier. Number 52/99, World Series relief pitching hero, Kenta Maeda...


I absolutely love this next one. Gonzo's career may or not be over, and the haters are biting around the edges, still claiming his arrival from the Red Sox paid no dividends. Philistines! 

A-Gon was the iron man, with ironclad offensive numbers throughout most of his Dodgers career.



 Good stuff from Wes, and we're a long ways from done. Next time: Autographs. 

Aloha!
