A few Hershiser cards that I wanted. Some collectors only want their player wearing the uniform of a specific team. Orel played with the Dodgers, the Mets, the Indians, the Giants and back to the Dodgers. I'll take any of them.
Orel Hershiser (card # 96)
The following Donruss card, also from 1996, appears to be the same photo as the Score card. Probably the same game and same photographer, but look at the writing on the ball. Different position. But I'm amazed at the consistency of Orel's pitching form.
Orel Hershiser (card #149)
I like the clean look of the back of the Donruss cards. You can actually read the stats. Speaking of clean, I have to clean my scanner glass.
Orel Hershiser (card #266)
And now the Rickey relic. A very thick card with a nice slice of Rickey bat. What? Rickey played for Seattle? When? 2000. Who else did he play for? Oakland. Yeah, I know that. New York. Both teams. San Diego? Really? Toronto? Boston? The Dodgers of Los Angeles? Yep. Yep. Yep. Anaheim? Yep. Back to Oakland? Really? Yep, a few times.

Rickey Henderson (card # 158)
Brad also sent along another Hershiser and some Diamondback cards for my dad.
