A few Akron Aeros cards

I have eight sets of Akron Aeros cards. All were printed by Multi-Ad Sports. Starting in 1998 with Russell Branyan, I have shown one card from each set. I picked Dustan Mohr from the 1999 set, not because he ever played for the Tribe, but because he played for the Crimson Tide while my daughter was getting her accounting degree at the University of Alabama. CC was at Akron in 2000 and Jason Stanford in 2001. Jared Wright was in the 5th Anniversary set also in 2001. Then Victor for 2002, Grady in 2003 and Kevin Kouzmanoff in 2006. I think it's a shame when a guy is the first player in history to hit a grand slam on his first major league pitch and then gets traded. Especially when Barfield has been such a disappointment.


  1. Nice. Do you have any duplicate team sets for trade?


  2. Kris,
    I don't have any duplicates, but I have found that a good way to get sets is to call directly to the minor league teams' offices and ask for any sets they have from past years. I had a nice young lady in Kinston, NC go into their warehouse and find 10 different Indians sets from previous years and sell them to me for $5 each.

  3. That's a great deal KH! I do deal with a number of different organizations in that manner, but I'm also constantly searching for new trading partners.
