I got this a few months ago. I thought I posted it here because I was pretty excited about getting it but apparently I didn’t. It’s probably my favorite Joey card but that’s hard to say… definitely top five.
The only reason I got that Karros card was because it was part of a lot on Listia that included this one. I do quite a bit of that- bidding on a bunch because I want just one of the cards- and it results in a lot of unwanted cards. I usually just rebundle them and repost them on Listia, from whence they came.
I just got these off of Listia a few days ago and they arrived yesterday. I used to have the Pinnacle but the Pacific was brand new to me. An interesting thing about those ’97 Pinnacles is the small, embossed print in the foil at the bottom. They include a bunch of words about the city that player’s team is based in so this one has stuff like “Space Needle”, “Junior”, “Sleepless…” and “Starbucks”.
I always liked Jay Buhner. I followed the mid-90s Mariners to a certain degree since that’s where Joey Cora was so I came to appreciate a few of their players. Randy Johnson and I share a birthday (along with Roger Maris and Arnold Palmer), Edgar Martinez was basically their Tony Gwynn and I don’t know if I’ve ever heard of anyone disliking Junior.
