An overdue thank you

About a month ago Adam from Infield Fly Rule was celebrating his 100th post with a contest. And I was fortunate enough to win said contest. The prize was a team bag full of checklists and a few extra non checklist cards that you will see at the end of this post. I know some of you might be wondering about the tie-in between one's 100th post and checklists. Well, you can read the logic behind it here.

So let's get this scanshow on the way:
These didn't scan particularly well, but I figure most people will recognize them. But on the off chance you don't, there is 1 from 1987 Topps, 1 from 1989 Donruss, 6 from 1989 Upper Deck, and 1 rookie checklist from 1990 Upper Deck.

Here's another batch from 1990 Upper Deck:
I really miss these art card checklists that Upper Deck did for all their sports products in the early 90's. This was an idea that really should come back, especially since the card companies are now reusing older designs on a regular basis.

On to the next group:
In here we have 6 from 1992 Upper Deck and 2 from 1993 Stadium Club.

Here's three from 1993 Leaf:
These were rather different, as far as checklists go, for their time. I wouldn't mind if they brought this style back as wel

The last batch here are the more contemporary of the bunch:
In here there are various Topps sets between 2010-14, the mini being from 2014. The real treat of the whole package for me was the three checklists from 2011 Topps Lineage that are going across the middle of the picture. I really like that set and didn't have those checklists, and as I mentioned a couple of posts ago, I hardly ever come across cards from this set so these were really neat to get.

The last two scans here are the extras that were added from 2005 Topps Update:

It took me a little while to get them shown, but it wasn't because of a lack of appreciation (just procrastination). So thank you again, Adam. These cards really made for a nice contest to win!

  1. You're welcome! I figured there were at least a few people out there that would be stoked to get some checklists. And especially from something like Topps Lineage.

    Speaking of Lineage, I am down to needing four cards. I just haven't figured out which four yet.
