Chris from Nachos Grande is back at it again as he sent me a nice envelope a few weeks after gifting me a nice little haul in January. Part of that package was a couple Barry Larkin needs from '93 Topps, and then I happened to comment that I didn't have their base versions. Generous guy that he is, Chris sent those to me and much, much more!
I've posted the Larkins over on TMM for your perusal while highlighting the plethora of Tigers he sent my way right here:
Willie Blair, who inexplicably won 16 games in '97, the awesomely named Raul Casanova and Frank Catalanotto, slick-fielding Deivi Cruz, Bob "How the hell was this guy a Rookie of the Year" Hamelin, and once-promising pitcher Justin Thompson, who was sent to Texas in the ill-fated Juan Gonzalez deal.
Also in this group is a '90 Topps of "Ken Williams," and OF/3B with Detroit for parts of 1989 and 1990. Why did I include him? You probably know him better as the GM and Executive VP for the White Sox!
Verlander and Sweet Lou are new. Well, technically I already had the Pudge/Verlander by way of owning the 2008 Topps set, but thanks to Chris I don't have to scan it!
Thanks again, Chris! I've somewhat started building a new package to send back your way and I'll keep working at it until I have something worthy of mailing to you.
