Reds card or not?

I read a funny post today at I Heart Halos.

Seems Bip Roberts is the Babe Ruth of baseball cards. The post got me to wondering if I am the only collector that adds guest appearance cards and wearing uniform but with another team cards to the team sets.

Case in point:
1996 Topps
Freakin Braves player Jeff Blauser's card.

But it has Ron Gant in a Reds uni on it. So I have it at the end of my 1996 Reds team set in the binder. This is clearly a Braves card. Am I a bit too possessive when it comes to Reds?

Or this:

Card one from 2000 Fleer Tradition clearly belongs in the Reds team set. But what about Greg? He is a Devil Ray. Not a Reds player. But he is in a Reds uniform. Therefore I have him at the end of the team set.

Are there any other collectors out there who do this or have any of you even thought about doing this? Just wondering if I am the only one.

Also. Does Wax Heaven consider this
a Canseco card?
1991 Score
Steve Sax - Yankees
If so there are two more in the set showing Canseco sliding.

You are definitely not the only one. I'm a huge fan of guest appearance cards. One of the parts of the 1991 Scioscia card that I love is Larkin looking on from the background.

As many times as I have seen that card I did not realize that was Larkin. And that is my main man!

A lot of Canseco collectors do but I don't know why.

Whaddyu talking bout. Ron Gant is a Brave. As for random braves on other people's cards, I can't keep up with all that so i usually ignore it. I totally forgot Bichette and Vaughn were Reds at one point. Are those from the update set?

Bay Rat North West said...

No. The cards of Bichette and Vaughn are from the base set. There are about 75 players in different unis with traded or signed by new team and no effort at airbrushing.

Jeff Kent's 199...um, 3? Topps card shows Chris Sabo. And Sabo is in the background on Pat Pacillo's 1988 Topps card. But that's already a Reds card.

Funny thing, someone sent me that card a week after your post.

Twilight Zone, man...
