November Card Show Part 2

As noted in my previous post, this past weekend was the monthly Urbandale American Legion Card Show. As always, I almost always find some really nice Padres cards.

For starters, here's a 1998 Skybox Dugout Access Dishwashers Kevin Brown, 1992 Ultra All-Stars Gary Sheffield, 1993 Topps Gold Jose Melendez, 1996 Bowman Ken Caminiti, 1996 Select Ken Caminiti, 1995 Ultra Second Year Standouts Joey Hamilton.
You have to love the back of that Select Caminiti card and the fact Pinnacle included this particular picture on the card. You have to wonder, though,  whose hand that is...
November's show also provided me the opportunity to load up on 2014 San Diego Padres cards.
Here's 2014 Bowman Chrome cards of Austin Hedges, Huston Street, Andrew Cashner, Ian Kennedy and Everth Cabrera. I know San Diego gave up Street to the Angels clear back in July, but all the same, it's a bit weird seeing Street in this team set, wearing Padres colors;

I've always enjoyed the Bowman Platinum product, and here's four cards from the 2014 set, including Austin Hedges, Max Fried, Nelson Liriano, and Hunter Renfroe.

2014 Donruss Everth Cabrera, Ian Kennedy, Tommy Medica RC,  Jedd Gyorko, Andrew Cashner and Chase Headley.

2014 Topps Rene Rivera, Joaquin Benoit, Troy Patton, Jeff Francoeur, Seth Smith and Alexei Amarista. Francoueur and Rivera, who I've always liked behind the plate, we saw play in Des Moines when the Chihuahua's were in town. Patton, a left-handed reliever the Padres picked up from Baltimore in the Nick Hundley trade, was recently suspended 80 games for amphetamines. He was also suspended for the first 25 games of the 2014 season after taking Adderall just four days before the end of the 2013 season. In September, San Diego outrighted him to Triple-A El Paso. and Patton refused the assignment becoming a free agent. Lots of luck with that, Troy.
And finally, how about a 2014 Panini Prizm Reymond Fuentes RC, 2014 Bowman Chrome Fire Diecut Refractors Austin Hedges and a 2014 Topps Chrome Tommy Medica RC. I really like those Bowman Chrome fire diecuts.

There will be yet another card show December 21 and I hope to be there yet again. Hopefully, there'll be a full complement of dealers in attendance that close to Christmas.
