The Buffet Menu had Tribe Cards

Usually, when you go to a buffet, you don't worry too much. There's bound to be something there that you like. BA Benny's Baseball Card Buffet was no different. Mike saw a card of mine that he liked and after several emails we came to terms on a trade that satisfied both of us.

First the appetizers. There was a nice assortment of older Tribe cards.

Well, maybe the gold Shoppach isn't so old but it's a nice card. I like the 1992 Studio with the B/W background action shot.Also the 1991 Fleer Sandy Alomar.

Chuck Finley had most of his best years with the Angels before he came to the Tribe (although he did win 16 games in 2000). Joe Carter, on the other hand, made his biggest contributions after he left the wigwam.Do you see a pattern here!?

Something old, something new. Something borrowed, some..... (getting a little carried away there.Our 30th wedding anniversary is coming up!) Pete's BA took a hit when he played here, but many of his other stats were much better, go figure. And, if Jhonny P gets traded, will he become a superstar? Probably!

Maybe some shiny will make it all better. Wood, Martinez and Hafner in gleaming chrome.

Time for desert or is it dessert? Yeah, I think so. 2006 Ultra Fine Fabrics Travis Hafner.
Pronk has to get his game back this year.He will get his game back this year.I know he will get...

Two courses of dessert!! Good old Grady. Grady will stay in Cleveland forever. Won't he? Won't he? Say it's so, Grady. You are a superstar in our eyes Grady, even though you don't get the top billing you deserve.

Well, that's all for tonight. Thank you very much for the trade and I probably will return for seconds !
