2016-17 & 2018, 2019 San Francisco Giants Fan Fest photo cards

(Updates at the bottom)

     eBay saved search comes through again!  It appears that the Giants updated their Fan Fest photo card design a tad for the 2018 event, and I just picked up a lot of cards on eBay that included a previously unknown Hensley Meulens card.

     In this new design, the team logo is now in a square that fits within the edges of the name and team bars, the player name is slightly wider, and the team name and position are now italicized.

2018 design

For comparison, below is the design that was used from 2013-2015.

2013-2015 design
The other cards I have found with this new, square 2018 design are as follows:

Jose Alguacil
Tyler Beede
Travis Bergen
Ty Blach
Steven Duggar
Aramis Garcia
Matt Herges
Nick Hundley
Ryder Jones
Evan Longoria
Andrew McCutchen

Hensley Meulens CO
Alyssa Nakken CO
Buster Posey
Pablo Sandoval
Rick Schu CO

Andrew Suarez
Breyvic Valera
Pat Venditte
Tony Watson
Mac Williamson
Curt Young CO

I'll update the list as I find more.


     Slight update here, as I just dicovered that there was another design change that I missed.  Between the 2013 design and the 2018 design, there was subtle change that I am now calling 2016-2017.  Swiped from an eBay listing, the Ehire Adrianza features the newly discovered design, and the Jeremy Affeldt the earlier design.  The two differences being on the 2016-17 design the team/position banner features the larger, italicized text, and the banner does not extend beyond the end of the logo circle.

For this 2016-17 design, I have identified the following players, so far:

Ehire Adrianza
Ray Black
Matt Cain
Brandon Crawford
Matt Duffy
Gorkys Hernandez
Chris Heston
Nick Hundley
Steven Okert
Josh Osich
Jarrett Parker
Hunter Pence
Buster Posey (crouching)
Buster Posey (throwing)
Jeff Samardzija
Chris Stratton
Albert Suarez
Kelby Tomlinson
Mac Williamson
Ron Wotus


Another design has surfaces for the 2019 Fan Fest cards.  So far, this Dereck Rodriguez is the only card I have seen on eBay:

--UPDATE 3/10/2024--

A recent eBay listing has added several more cards to all of these sets, including more from 2019, so that now stands at:

Craig Albernaz
Andrew Bailey CO
Brian Bannster CO
Tyler Beede
Kai Correa CO
Jaylin Davis
Alex Dickerson
Mauricio Dubon
Mark Hallberg CO
Dustin Lind
Andoan Richardson CO
Dereck Rodriguez
Drew Smyly


  1. If you're willing to trade the McCutchen please let me know.

    1. Oh, I don't have the McCutchen, I saw it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cueTYXqAib0

  2. I wonder if Collecting Cutch has that McCutchen.

  3. And now it has only just occurred to me that there is likely another Meulens from that 2016-17 set....
