Questions for Team Collectors
Rockies or D-Backs?
I have been planning on doing this post for a while, but finally just got around to it, a few months ago the kind individual behind Cards from the Quarry let me see his "One of every Rockies" master list to compare with mine, while we had the players the same, our definition of what constitutes a Rockies card differed slightly. Among the differences were Jeff Fassero and Bruce Hurst, both have one card in a Rockies uniform, but are listed as D-Backs and Rangers. The reverse happened with Jose Mesa, who has cards listing him with the Rockies, but only shown in a Pirates uniform. Multi-player cards also came into question, Mark Strittmatter appears on two multi-player cards, not one of his own, but both feature only Rockies players, Thomas Field has his first card in the new heritage, but it has a Giant and a Cardinal on it. So a question to team collectors, what are your opinions on what constitutes a team card, I am curious to see how other people define team cards (and if anyone actually reads this)
