Oddball Mailday: Sandy Alomar, Jr. Danbury Mint
A weird impulse buy from eBay. A 2003 Danbury mint 22K gold Sandy Alomar, Jr. card. This is my first Alomar with Colorado and my first gold card. There looks to be this card issued in 2003 and the original from 2000 with the Indians as the team. The Rockies card is a little different in that the jersey is changed with the shoulder patch and pinstripes, and the should pad on his chest protector has been removed although both cards are number 95 in the set. This is about all I can find on this card, no idea on print run or anything else, just something different to add to the collection.
