Visiting the Mendoza Line


A recent package from defgav of Baseball Card Breakdown inspired me to go out looking for new Mario Mendoza cardboard to add to my player collection. I didn't find a lot out there outside of minor league cards advertised at $12 a pop (no thanks!), but a realistic seller had this 1992 Cal League Cards California League All Star card at a reasonable price. It was good enough to scratch my Mendoza itch, so I placed an order and got it in the mail a few days later. I think I have most of the cards made of Mendoza during his playing days, so I'm glad he made a nice career as a  minor league coach/manager to give me more Mario-related cardboard to chase.

    1. It does look about how you'd expect a minor league card to look.

    1. I like them, too, but I don't gather many of them into my collection.
