Something for Everybody

But mostly some things for me. 

Brian of the Twins-centric Highly Subjective and Completely Arbitrary was kind enough to hit me up with a package (we'll call them Red Dilly) recently, and it was sure enough not to disappoint. (I can't say that I've ever been disappointed by cards people have sent me through this blog, except when the mailman decided to play hacky sack with the goods, but that's another story altogether.) This was another great one that ticked a lot of boxes in all corners of my collections.

Something for the fan of pink cards! I think this qualifies as pink? These are numbered to 250, so as so as I track down the other 249, I will have them all.

Something for fans of The Finest. Yes, I capitalized "The". It's that precious.

Something for the team collector who can't get enough journeymen relievers.

Something for the "Ooh, that's shiny!" crowd.

Something for the near-sighted. Or maybe he was far sighted. Or maybe he was way, way ahead of his time and wore non-prescription glasses to look cool.

And something for the set collectors. I am down to just around a dozen or so of these base cards left in my set quest, but I'll never be done with those dastardly short prints. Thanks again to Brian for helping me out with this set and other Cardinals needs!
