I just ordered a bunch of Minor League Baseball Mascot cards from two Ebay seller's stores. I think most of them are team issued but a few are from DAV (Disabled American Veterans) issues. They will provide plenty of fodder for my regular card blog's Mascot Mondays posts.

Got a lone card (from the Lone Star State Ironically) from sportlots 1969 Topps 208 Donn Clendenon Houston. I also have the Expos variation of this card which I've had for so long I think it is one of my original '69s Not 100% sure on that one though.
