Coot Veal Red Sox - Part Two - World Series Champions

Here are the contents of the second team set bag from the recent package of Red Sox cards sent by Dustin of Coot Veal and the Vealtones.  Here's where we start to pick up some steam, as this one was entirely packed with Red Sox stars.  There were 35 cards in this lot and only 9 of them were dupes for me.  Here are the 26 new ones...

This one's from National Baseball Card Day back in 2006.  I didn't start collecting again until 2007 so I hadn't even seen this card before.

A nice card from the 2009 O-Pee-Chee set that refers to Kevin Youkilis as a cheerleader.  I've always liked this set, I can see why there are at least a few collectors I know chasing it.

Here's one from the "way too busy" files, 2005 Upper Deck Pros and Prospects.

This one's a die-cut insert from Upper Deck X, with the negative space to the right and left of the X cut out.

Although I returned to collecting in 2007, I purchased just a single pack of the flagship Upper Deck set that year, so this one is appreciated for sure.


Is Miguel Tejada still clinging on with a roster spot somewhere?  I want to say no, but I'm too lazy to look it up...

I had the Xfractor version of this Chrome card, but not the base until now.


Quite a few Lesters included in this one.

Given how much 2010 Topps I purchased I was surprised I didn't have this one, until I found out it was from the Updates set which I bought very little of.

Here's a nice one from the 2008 Topps set, commemorating Pedroia's Rookie of the Year award.


A very shiny, very purple Daisuke.

This 2006 Topps David Ortiz is from the Red Sox team issue, and is numbered BOS1.



I never looked before, but after this post I ran a tally of my David Ortiz cards and realized I'm getting awfully close to crossing the 100 unique cards threshold.

Ah, Manny.  Talk about a fall from grace.


I remember the obnoxious blonde dreads phase.

Also thrown in this portion of the package were two great, oversized 1989 Bowmans.  Lee Smith in front of a bush...

...and Will Clark, the only non-Red Sox card in the package so far and a complete hit in terms of my collection.  Dustin not only recognized that I collect Clark but also managed to hit on one I did not own.

Sticking with the oversized cards, there were three from the 1990 Topps Big set.  Had a ton of these as a kid and gladly welcome these three back into my collection.


I'll have part three of this trade post up sometime this week...

Also, I love when you post random Red Sox cards because it brings back memories of long forgotten players, like Danny Heep.

Hah, same here! That's the reason I won't turn away any new Red Sox card, no matter how valuable or "worthless" it's deemed.

Thanks Dan, I had no idea.

Whoa, I had no idea I would get a series of posts. Dig it.

Yeah this was an amazing trade package, way too many cards to show at once. Thanks again!
