San Jose Fuji's parents, despite being native Hawaiians, met in college in Wisconsin, and Fuji wisely chose to cheer for the Green Bay Packers as a result. So, when I told him I had a police set from 1984 with BUCKY SCRIBNER in it, Fuji couldn't resist trading for it.
The Brewers cards that came from San Jose to the ATL were well worth the Packers set.
Let's start with the card that has the most value of any in this package:
There were Brewers cards in the package too which, after getting an autographed Fuji, were a bit of a let down. Yeah, they go into the player collections or the Brewers binders (still in progress), but they are not Fujis.
Let's start with the Younts:
|2002 Topps Gallery Heritage GH-RY|
|1992 Topps Gold Winner|
Some Prince Fielder:
Big Richie Sexson:
Ben Sheets, with whom the question always was "What if he could have stayed healthy?"
|With Richie Sexson|
Jeff Cirillo -- including an Upper Deck Black Diamond numbered 538/1500 and a Bowman Chrome!
A few guys whom I never remembered playing or whom I simply forgot played with Milwaukee:
|Michael Brantley. Don't remember him|
|Dionys Cesar, who never made the big leagues and probably got this card to underscore the|
pathetic drafts that Bud Selig oversaw in the late 1990s
|Devon White. I certainly remember him, but I did not remember his roaming around the|
outfield in 2001 for Milwaukee in his final Major League season
Okay, three more guys I definitely remember, all on cards I definitely needed:
|Tony Gwynn Jr.|
Finally, the climax. Other than the Fuji insert, the two most excellent cards in the package were these two -- a relic and an on-card autograph:
|Big goofy looking Corey Hart on a little, tiny 2012 Allen & Ginter Relic|
