You see what I'm doing here? If you're like me, any number of songs may have popped into your head. ...the dream is over... and, if you're like me, you now have the horrible all star song in your head. I'm sorry, but that's just how it is.
Consummate Tiger fan and card blogger sixtyfeetsix (aka Jim) was digging through some boxes and found a bunch of extra cards from the 2005 All Star fanfest in Detroit. I happened to be in Detroit for all of the All Star festivities, but didn't make it out to fanfest and also wasn't collecting cards at the time. That's where Jim comes in.
The 2005 All Star Fanfest set had 9 cards, thanks to Jim, I now have 6 of them. I also happen to have a few extras if anyone is interested.
First, there are some great dual Tigers Hall of Famers/HOFer-to-be cards:
Next, a couple of Bronx Bombers:
I know that people are tired of relic cards, but you know what? I'm not. When someone sends me a card like this out of the blue, I can't help but become overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you so much for the cards, Jim. I am now officially on a mission to complete the rest of the 9-card set.
