Let's Get Crackin'!

Julie from A Cracked Bat sent over an envelope recently with some very cool cards! This J.D. Durbin autograph is numbered to just 75 copies.

Julie had a few cards up for grabs recently, and I was happy to claim this Eddie Murray from Archives . . .

. . . and this 2020 Nelson Cruz insert from series 1. Julie also threw in the Durbin and a couple more extras!

Kennys! He was actually in minor league camp with the Tigers this spring, not sure what his fate will be now given the circumstances in which a season will or won't be played at this point. Maybe he'll get a chance to be a 1B / DH for Gardy at some point in 2020.

Last but not least was this neat patch card of Shannon Stewart - based on the design, I bet there is a bat relic version of this card as well! I miss these designs and products, even though Panini is still trying to get some portion of the market while they wait for a chance to once again have a license for MLB logos.

Thanks very much Julie! These are great!


  1. Mid-2000's Leaf/Donruss products were pretty nice. I can't really say the same about modern Donruss...

  2. Julie is awesome! I really like the look of that Tier One autograph.

  3. The real deal! There were high hopes for Durbin when he was a prospect. Great autos of him and Kennys

  4. I could see Kennys cracking that Tiger roster. Thanks for sharing!

  5. So glad you rec'd these in good condition! It was a PWE after all, though mailed with care. :)
