#5-1999 Ben Grieve Extended
I worte about this and J.D. Drew piece earlier in one of my SLU Blog posts, but seriously in the middle of a HURRICANE, I went to HEB to BUY THIS FIGURE (Along with J.D. Drew). Ben Grieve, you will live in infamy.
#4-1999 Jaret Wright Extended
Remember when Hasbro made a Jaret Wright SLU 2 seasons too late? Remember when I bought it anyway??? Yet another infamous HEB find (this time in Flour Bluff, which is a good 20-25 minutes away from my house).
#3-1998 Tony Womack Extended
In 1998 I asked myself one question....who the HELL is Tony Womack and why did they make a figure of him. Well he's in a cool sliding pose so he must good thus I'll buy him. Womack wasn't THAT bad of a player, but he's one of those sit on the shelfs at Wal Mart type guys, yet I STILL bought it. Had I waited, I could have bought it on clearance. I wouldn't be surprised if Wal Mart just threw out the remaining pieces, hell they got one sucker to buy one, and that was good enough!
#2-1998 Hideki Irabu Extended
Maybe it's those little stickers, but man I got hammered on Extended Series pieces, all 4 so far have been Extended Series. I bought into the Irabu hype and thought he'd be the next Nomo like ace for the Yankees. He never really panned out unfortunately and in a sad turn of events, he committed suicide last year.
#1-1997 Ismael Valdes
WHO???? (Yet I bought it anyway)
