Sweet cards!

Recommended Posts

y'all know I'm all about that hashtag umpfan lyfe. I ordered these (for an atrocious sum) last spring and forgot. Only when I went over to my old house a few days ago and my biological father hand me my mail did I remember. They're all in AWESOME condition. Well worth the money.

edit: some of them uploaded out of order but I have faith that you can figure it out

Well, these are hardly updated. I have a sneaking suspicion that Reagan is not still Dave Pallone's hero, and Brian Gorman is rather babyfaced. Unfortunately these don't have a publish date on them like normal baseball cards and I can't track down the receipt. 

edit: omg I need to update my lens prescription the first four do (2004) but the last four don't.

The top two cards (the ones using italic font) were printed in 1989. The bottom two cards using roman font (the upright font) were printed in 1988 by T&M Sports (complete set of 63 cards). I believe T&M also printed a set of umpire cards in 1990.

Your 2004 cards were printed by Topps and they called the set Bowman Heritage. That’s because the cards are using the same design as the 1955 Bowman cards which was the last year Bowman was in business. They were bought out by Topps after the 1955 print run.

The 1955 Bowman set (which your 2004 cards are based on) had 320 cards of which 30 cards were of umpires. The umpire subset of cards was a complete failure. They were the first cards kids would throw away thus making a complete set of 1955 Bowmans a rarity (and worth about $8500).

this is really cool information and I'm glad you added it but why is it so large that's what she said
