Day 2 of the 30-Day Baseball Card Challenge

Today I tackle the second topic of the 30-Day Baseball Card Challenge.

I had to think for a while on this one. There are many types of cards that feature more than one player. After some careful consideration, my mind kept going back to the following:

This is the 2001 Fleer Tradition New York Yankees Team Leaders card. There are a few reasons I ultimately chose this card. First, it's the Yankees. Less predictably, 2001 is the first year I really went all in on collecting. Sure, I collected as a kid, but back then, my funds were limited to allowance, Birthday, and Christmas money. In 2001, I had already entered the workforce and was drawing a steady paycheck. Couple that with the fact that I was working about 500 yards from a pretty great LCS and I was picking up cardboard several days a week. That year was also the dawning of the retro themed sets. Fleer Tradition, Topps Heritage and Bowman Heritage all come to mind and I loved them all. I love that this card features the 'floating heads' that were often found in the '60's. Lastly, if you're going to have a modern Yankee card that features multiple players, it doesn't hurt to have 3/4 of the Core Four and Bernie Wiliams for good measure. Thank you for reading.


  1. Maybe it's just me, but I find the "floating head" cards super creepy!

  2. it's not just you Colbey. ;) good choice for Card 2 though!
