I have been doing some major scouring over the complete Sandy Alomar Jr. checklist trying to figure out what is still out there for the lesser teams in his career. Not really much, but there are some things. That lead me to look into my most-desired card for each franchise. I stuck to the Top 10 Most Wanted list for a few teams, though the temptation to deviate a little bit was strong. I tried to find scans but only ended up with one. If anyone has any of these cards, I would love to work out a trade.
1991 Rock's Dugout Wichita Wranglers #NNO1
SAN DIEGO PADRES:
2003 Donruss Rookies Recollection Autographs #1 1989 Donruss Rookies /2
have no scan of this card because it is incredibly rare. There are
just two copies of this card out there. It is the buyback of the 1989
Donruss Rookies card foil-stamped and autographed and is currently the
last of three certified autos of Alomar with the Padres.
Topps Tek #27 Patterns 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 23, 25, 27,
34, 40, 41, 51, 53, 54, 55, 66, 70, 71, 78, 83, 84, 86, 87, 88
are a bunch of Indians cards on my Top Ten Most Wanted. Since the 1998
Topps Tek set is my current biggest goal, I figured it would be easiest
to simply enter all of the needed patterns.
CHICAGO WHITE SOX:
2001 Tops Traded Relics #SA
actually seems to have as many White Sox relics as he does with the
Indians. This is mostly due to the fact that relics became a lot more
common in the early 2000's. For some reason though, his relics are kind
of hard to find. Including this one.
2002 Topps Chrome Traded Black Refractor #T68
appears to be the only remaining Rockies card I do not have. I have
the Cliff Floyd card for this parallel set, but no Sandy Alomar Jr.
2005 Topps Total Press Plates (any color)
the time Alomar was with the Rangers, he was barely a backup catcher.
Also, there were very few sets making large team sets. So Alomar only
appears in a couple of sets with the Rangers and I have all but the
rarest cards. Though there is a Rangers exclusive set that I suspect is
more of a postcard size set.
LOS ANGELES DODGERS:
2006 Upper Deck Special F/X Blue #677
to the Rangers, there are not many Dodgers cards of Alomar. The blue
version of this set is the rarest besides the printing plates. I also
need the red and purple versions.
NEW YORK METS:
To my knowledge, there are NO New York Mets cards. Maybe some day he will manage the team. Who knows?
1997 Pacific Baerga Softball #4
do not think there is a team designation on this card, it was part of a
set produced for Carlos Baerga's softball tournament featuring other
Puerto Rican players. There is also a Puerto Rican Winter League card I
