Today's subject is former Tigers/Dodgers (and Royals and Pirates, but that's just weird) OF/DH Kirk Gibson. I had a few things scanned for him in the past, mainly his hits and a few interesting inserts, and to those I added another hundred or so, about a third of which hailed from sets I'd completed.
As of this post his collection comprises 126 cards including three autographs and two each of jersey and bat relics, plus a pair of RCs. There's no need for me to show off every single card in one post, and I've already covered the hits in previous ones, so here's a few highlights I decided were worth showing off:
my significant Baseball RC collection, but rest assured I've already rectified that.
The Diamond Kings:
The "That homer he hit that one time":
I did a quick bit of sleuthing on this 1994 Collector's Choice base of Gibson and I believe the player he's so helpfully carrying on his back is none other than former Reds star Eric Davis, who appeared in 60 games with the Tigers over the 1993 and '94 seasons. This is a fun moment to have captured on a card for sure!
I do believe that's former Indian Jim Thome that Gibby is attempting to barrel over in this card from 1995 Pinnacle. It hails from the year of his final MLB season and includes his stats from his penultimate year in the bigs in which he put up a resurgent 23 HR for his best total since '88.
There's just a little sampling of what's there, but please make sure to head over to the album for lots more! Hopefully I'll keep adding to this as I find more of his stuff.
I'll get to other players soon enough, but for now I'd like to point out that I now have individual links for each guy in the project on the right side of the page above my blogroll and beneath my other collections. You can also follow along with my Michigan-centric baseball and hockey PCs (including Barry Larkin!) at the Michigan Player Collections link at the very top to the right of my other pages.
