1991 Score All-Star #395

Cecil made the first of his three MLB All-Star appearances in 1990...


It's no Dick Perez, but then again, it's Score.

1994 Bowman #69

Back in the mid-90's, full-bleed/borderless baseball cards were all the rage...


I could make a "Cecil likes donuts (or doughnuts, if you prefer)" joke... but I won't.

1991 Leaf #106

Not to be confused with 1991 Leaf Preview #18.


That was close, but I think he got back in time. My research came up with #39 on the Angels in '91 as being Dave Parker... but that doesn't look like "The Cobra" to me.


*Edit - The Angel making a "card cameo" with Cecil is Mr. Devon White.

1998 Topps #372, "Minted In Cooperstown" Parallel

It's safe to assume Cecil Fielder will never end up in the HOF, though his .255 lifetime batting average and 319 career home runs came at the dawn of an era marred by performance-enhancing drugs. As far as we know (oh yes, we know), Big Daddy was clean...


Ah, Cess' "Golden Year(s)" in Southern California. I hear it never rains...

1995 Upper Deck Collector's Choice: Special Edition, Blue #220

Boy, wasn't that a mouthfull! A classic pose for Big Daddy. Longball...


Upper Deck has always been known for it's full-color, quality photography on the backs of their cards...

1989 Donruss #442

"...Feelin' oh so silky smooth!"...


Donruss had my favorite back of all-time growing up...

2005 Topps Fan Favorites #FFR-CF

That Mr. Turkey card was pretty, pretty ugly (good luck to Upper Deck next year... no logos, no prob!). A "Fan Favorite" indeed...


074/200. Congratulations!


Probably not from Cecil's actual bat but a good lookin' card nonetheless.

1992 Mr. Turkey Superstars #8 of 26

Back in the 90's, the MLBPA gave out licenses to just about anyone who wanted to make baseball cards. The end result was a slew of quirky oddballs...

1990 Score Traded #9T

Cecil's cards from the year 1990 were some of my favorite to collect. Probably because there wasn't alot of them...


Mugshot...

2008 Tristar Signa Cuts #02/50 "Bronx Edition"

No picture, no problem. Cecil's got a great lookin' sig...
