I only claimed one card and Wes quickly replied that it was mine. I believe that I was a few hours late to the party and I'm glad there aren't too many Indians card collectors. I snagged this...
Baseball bores me and I don't watch it anymore. However, it was the first sport that I loved. After being a Braves fan (because of Dale Murphy) and then Giants fan (Will Clark), I settled in the early 1990s on the Indians. My parents bought me a stereo and I could get WKNR out of Cleveland. I spent many evenings listening to Tom Hamilton and Herb Score call Tribe games. I have a few autographs of mid-90s Indians, but I need to get more. I'm thrilled to add this to my collection.
After all was said and done, I asked Wes if anyone had claimed one other card I was interested in. The answer was no and I was also able to acquire this one...
I understand the reasons why, but I feel that Gary Sheffield is one of the most underrated players of my generation. I won't say he's a favorite of mine or anything. Picking up this card was about the set and not the player. I have a few cards from this set (Gwynn, Will Clark, and Kenny Lofton) and if I ever see them cheap, I pick them up. If I ever acquire enough, it might be worth making a project.
Wes also included three other cards...and they are some goodies! Obviously he reads my blog (or Twitter) and knows that I'm a West Virginia alumnus.

There is a very loud group of people out there that complain about companies without logo licenses producing cards. You're allowed your opinion, but you know what they say about opinions. I think this is a beautiful card. The blue version of the cards makes it that much better with a Mountaineer.
Oh, and it's numbered out of 50.
The Mountaineer trend continues with the second card added.

So, yeah, I dig this card. I dig it to the point that I may look into getting as much of the rainbow as I can. I'll never have that Superfractor, but what can you do?
Competing the Mountaineer trifecta is one that I really like because of the color. Anything Mountaineer related in blue is good and this one looks great combined with the Bears color scheme.
