A Lot More Tek Progress

A lot of stuff came in the past two days and here I am to show it all off:
This is only my third variation of the 2005 Topps Rookie Cup base card.  There is still a green, blue, and orange version out there that should be relatively easy to get.

Up next is four more patterns for the Topps Tek set.  There are two more in the second scan putting me at 17 different variations.  Only 73 to go.  If anyone has any I have a list of what I have on my Sandy Alomar Collection page.  I really want to complete this set.

The Beisbol Amigos card is kind of odd.  A number of Latin Indians show up on this card, including Felix Fermin, Carlos Martinez, Jose Mesa, and Carlos Baerga.  There are some others as well, but I can't remember them all and one player is not even named on the card.  Annoying.
Here is another Beisbol Amigos card with just Alomar and Baerga.  

The Leaf buyback is the card I bought for myself for my birthday.  It is numbered 5/5 and even though the buyback thing is kind of dumb, I still like it.  

The Bowman card is the Tiffany version.

The Tristar is a cut autograph card.  I decided not to break the case open to put the card in my binder.  Tough decision to make.  Now I have a separate card floating around from the rest of my Alomars.
These are two parallels from Pacific sets in 1998.  I always liked the Platinum Blue parallels and Invincible was a favorite set of mine anyway.  Nice to add the Alomars.


  1. Nice blog...I also collect Sandy Alomar Jr. cards...off and on for the last 20+ years...I see you have outbid me on a couple cards recently! (tristar cut auto, topps total printing plate and bought the topps rookie cup #'d/3 before i even seen it available)...I don't have a lot of duplicates but can send you a list if you'd like.

  2. Thanks for the comment. Yes, please email me a list and I can see if there is something there I need. My complete list of cards I have is on the right side of the page if you would prefer to consult that. Thank you.

  3. Your list made it easier.
    I have the following 3 duplicates:
    1999 Topps Gallery Private Players Issue #50 #'d/250
    2003 Fleer Update Glossy #U194 #'d/100
    2012 Leaf Memories Buyback (1990 Leaf) Gold #232 #'d 2/5

    1. I could definitely use all of those. Let me know what I can send in exchange. I have a trade list posted on my Red Sox blog which is linked on this page as well. I have some Alomar duplicates but not many.

  4. Matt, please email me about those cards. Thanks.
