And while the mileage is good, I would not recommend a Prius for mountain climbing. There isn't a lot of power in the engine, and I was really straining heading up to Nederland and Estes Park.

Fleer made minis? What sorcery is this? It shows how out of the loop I was with card collecting in the early 80's that I have never known about these minis (compared in size to a recent Topps insert). Kerry sent 5 of these bad boys over. Not sure if that is the whole Sox set, but I know I now have more research to do.

Late 90's and early 00's cards are welcome here. As I have mentioned in the past, in the Sox box, the years from 1998-2005 are surprisingly light considering the number of sets released in that time frame. And I'm just going to say it: I think Fleer Tradition did a better job with the '56 set than 2005 Heritage.
Shiny! Tatis is a purple parallel from this year's Bowman numbered to 250. The Shark is an Opening Day parallel. And while Eaton looks normal on the front, the back is a Sabermetrics variation. A fine addition to the Eaton collection.
