An early 2019 goal is to finish of 2015 Gypsy Queen, my most recent Sportlots mailday brings me down to three cards.

RLC Custom Card Project: Ken Roberts

The Player: Ken Roberts was drafted by the Rockies in 2010, worked his way up the system and eventually made his MLB debut in May of 2015. He pitched 13 2/3 innings over 15 games with a 7.24 ERA. In August of the same year he was selected off waivers by the Phillies and would pitch in 6 games with Philadelphia earning his first and only MLB win.

The Card: 2007 Fleer is not the most memorable set, but it fit well with the purple background and actually kind of a nice design when you really look at it.

The Project: Rockies Legacy Collection custom project to make digital cards of Rockies players who never had one issued.https://condition-sensitive.blogspot.com/2018/03/rlc-custom-card-project-main-page.html

First Mailday of 2019

A card that I was watching online for a while and decide to buy before missing out. Canada often gets snubbed on WBC cards (Freddie Freeman was the only player to get a card the last time), but in 2009 Konami made a 253 card set with quite a few players including this Pete Orr, who has been a part of a few Team Canadas but this is his only international card. This pickup only leaves me with Mike Johnson, Russell Martin and Jason Bay to finish the team set.

Last Package of 2018 (TCDB Trade #34)

This trade snuck in on the 31st marking the last package of 2018. Some Gems and some awfulness. The awfulness is the above 1999 Skybox Thunder. The front looks like regular over-production era cardboard, but the backs what this set is about.
