Mail Day: Piazza Party!
This time around a raided the .18¢ bin on Sportlots. It can take a couple of tries, but I’m usually able to find a seller on Sportlots with a decent amount of Piazza cards for the minimum price. This guy even had a quantity discount and very good shipping prices. Look at all of these beautiful Piazzas that cost less than a quarter a piece.
I’m not quite sure why, but the second Leaf Piazza card on the top row has his 1993 Leaf card on the back. When Topps combined the unpopular 2008 design with bright red, you ended up with one of the worst card designs ever.
Here’s some more cards that use the same design in two different sets. I’m really liking the Bazooka comic and the Cracker Jack card. I already had the Cracker Jack mini, but I needed the regular sized card.
It’s become the popular thing to rally against these days, but Topps has been doing variants for a while now. Those are both 2004 Bazooka cards numbered 198, but you can find the card with two different pictures.
Here’s the last few cards. There’s some great sliding shots here as well as a picture of Piazza throwing the ball, something he wasn’t all that great at doing. 51 more Piazzas added to the collection.
