The 2016 Heritage with Guilder Rodriguez came from a 50/50 with Gerard that I was able to do.
I got everyone I set out to get during this series. I should be able to finish Myrtle Beach when they come back in mid-August.

I always enjoyed the 1992 Triple Play set. It was one of the first that I could afford a hobby box of, and I'm certain there are a ton of the cards still floating around my parent's attic. I liked this Little Hotshots card from that set, and can now add it to the album.
I mailed to Butler again on April 10 and got the cards back on April 21, for an 11-day TAT.
Clyde (b. 1955) played in the majors from 1973 to 1975, 1978 and 1979 for the Rangers and Indians. He had a record of 18-33 with 228 strike outs and an ERA of 4.63.

I got the above Don Baylor off of Ebay fairly cheaply, and compared it to other Baylors. It looks legit, and makes up for my failure to send to him before he passed.
So, here they are. I knocked off several cards for the set, and they are all in my album.

My goal, now, is to go on Sportlots and complete the thing, so I can get it out of my closet... into another closet where I keep my sets.
Thanks so much for the cards, P. A. Even better was meeting up with him and catching up after all these years!

Not too recently, Philip became a fan of the Yankees. I think it was to rib me at the start, but then he got really hooked. I have recently sent him cards of Gleyber Torres, since he is a really good young player. Philip even bought my Gleyber auto off of me; which I have since gotten graded for him.
He also has spent more time looking at the MLB draft, and younger prospects. He becamse a fan of Ronald Acuna and Juan Soto for that reason.
It turned out, he knew a relative of last year's A's first round pick, Austin Beck, since Beck was from Davidson County, NC. Philip heard about a signing Beck was doing, and went this past February. He was kind enough to pick up a ball for me and a card for Chris to get signed. I have been wanting to post the ball, but have been so far behind on my posts, it has just sat here in it's box. Since I have a case of ball cubes sitting here ready to be opened, I figured now would be a good time to show off the ball that my brother got done for me.
Beck (b. 1998) was drafted 6th overall by the A's in the 2017 June Amateur Draft. He is a center fielder out of Lexington, NC. In the two seasons he has played in the minors, he has reached Class A Full Season and has a total of 127 hits, 3 home runs and a .264 batting average. OOkland's full season Class A team is the Beloit Snappers.
Thanks for picking up the ball for me, Philip. I hate that it took me so long to get it posted, but I appreciate it nonetheless.
Steinbach (b. 1962) played in the majors from 1986 to 1999 for the A's and Twins. He had 1,453 hits, 162 home runs and a .271 batting average. He was an All Star 3 times (1988, 1989 and 1993) and won the World Series with the A's in 1989. He finished 21st in the 1996 AL MVP voting.
I mailed to Steinbach on October 16, 2017, and got the cards back on April 19, for a 185-day TAT. I paid his fee of $2/card.
