Corona-chan has been in full force now for about 2 weeks here. No baseball, and I'm engaging in what I refer to as not just "social distancing", but "anti-social distancing". Basically maintaining about 6 miles between others. It has allowed me to go back through some of my boxes just to see what may be hidden in there.
I've found quite a few doubles of ones I had already pulled out, but figured I'd set them aside as duplicates in case others may need them. I did manage to find this 1993 SP Rod Beck with pic on the reverse. He is wearing the San Francisco Seals minor league jersey.
Latest mail pickups are these 2020 SP cards with Juan Soto, Anthony Rendon and Max Scherzer in these great Powder Blue Montreal Expos jerseys. The other 2020 SP is the Joey Votto in those sweet 1956 vests, sans sleeves.
Another mail addition was this stunning Nick Senzel 1984 design from 2019 Update Series. This uniform goes in my Top 10 for best Throwback Uniforms to appear on a card.
2020 Topps Opening Day also released and besides the Aristedes Aquino in the same pic as the flagship series, Freddie Freeman is rocking those amazing 1974 Atlanta Braves home white jerseys. Have some Gypsy Queen coming soon as the opening I have seen of those look like some excellent Throwback pics in there including a Mike Trout.
