Balancing Act 2

 When I play Tennis, I balance the ball on my fingers similar to the ballplayers shown.  I used to do the same thing with the baseball a lot of years ago.   I'm pretty sure I never balanced my helmet.

In The Stands

 Here's a theme I recently came across:  Fan Interaction.

This is what makes a great baseball card.










On cue,  "open wide"


Everybody duck


It's a bird, a plane   Who's coming?


Did you get that ESPN.


Just resting.




A glove, a hat and a hand.

Updates

 Here are some update cards from 2 of my earlier posts.


Hammers










Bubbles

I've been looking for a bubble in a non sport card.
Then on a single day, I find two cards.


Even though I've seen Goonies, I don't remember the bubble.


Guiness World Record Bubble.

Marlboro Man

 My last post involved cards with beer ads in the background.  Today deals with the Marlboro Man.

You've probably already seen the Randy Johnson Marlboro variation, but here are some of my 

Marlboro Man stand alone signs.






















You'll notice a minor league theme to most of these cards.

Beer ads at the ballpark.

As I look at cards, I'm probably more interested in the background or action taking place than in the specific player.  My latest backdrop search is for different beer ads.  Here are my brands so far.



Busch Beer


Miller High Life


Coors Light


Coors


Lite Beer


Budweiser King of Beers


Bud


Not a card, but was mixed in


Football 
Working on other sports


Budweiser, Coke and Marlboro


HOF'er Bobby Doerr and just the Beer Bottle.

I've got a feeling this is just the "tip of the iceberg"
Next is finding the oldest card with a beer on it.
