eBay Wins #146

Today I've got a half dozen 1991 Leafs (Leaves? No, I checked. Pluralizing proper nouns doesn't work that way), picked up for a penny each on eBay.

I always like to look up information on the more obscure Cardinals among my somewhat random eBay wins, and Jamie Quirk played just 48 games for the Cardinals, in 1983. He had an 18-year career, but only played 984 games. Over his career, he played every position but Center Field and Pitcher at least once. It seems like you don't see a lot of that anymore, backup catchers playing fielding positions. Occasionally a big hitting starter like Yadier Molina or Buster Posey will get a "day off" - at least for their knees - at first base, or a promising hitter will be outright moved for a new promising catcher, like Joe Torre or Todd Zeile's move to Third Base.

I now have 121 unique cards from the 1991 Leaf set. I already had a copy of Chris Nabholz's card, but the other 5 were new. With only 528 cards in the set, I'm over 22.9% of the way to completion.
