Collecting topics - awesome action

Even more cards from an 87-card mix I put together at a card show for $20 - I don't think I'll end up stretching out this one-time purchase, though maybe I'll be able to get at least several posts out of it.

While I'm not hunting for specific brands or sets digging through the dollar and under boxes - I'd like to believe that I'm building up a stash that makes some sort of sense, so I'd separated the cards I bought into some of the themes in my collections.  

Though not all cards are pictured, here are the cards I bought for my 'awesome action' mini-collection showing something unique - maybe a 'nice action shot' or maybe a 'personality shot' that captures the immortal qualities of mortal ballplayers.
