|Jeffrey Leonard and Eddie Murray General Mills sticker.|
Included in my Black Friday purchases are a handful of oversized cards, so I'll feature them here, on my Saturday series on oversized cards. Either COMC doesn't indicate the size of cards, or at least I don't know where to find such information, so when a card I buy from them is oversized, it's a surprise to me.
The first one here, the Leonard-Murray sticker pictured above, isn't really a card at all, but a pair of album stickers. I don't usually buy such things, but I'm a sucker for food-issue cards, and I couldn't resist the General Mills logo on this. I bought it for my Murray player collection, but it won't end up in the binder because of the dimensions -- this is 3-5/8" high, a full 1/8 of an inch taller then a standard card. Unlike other album stickers, this won't fit neatly and safely into my binder pages, so it will be stored with my other oversized cards.
With these, plus the two Candelarias and one Pena mentioned above, I appear to have started forming a nice oversized sub-collection for my player collections. Any future oversized acquisitions will be incidental, though, as I'm not developing this on purpose.
