It has photos of several Rockies stars including Matt Holliday, Todd Helton, Troy Tulowitzki, Manny Corpas, Kaz Matsui, Jeff Francis, Garrett Atkins and others.
The second collectible envelope, colored in yellow, shows photos of several of these Rockies stars along with photos of Red Sox stars Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz and other players.
It also includes images of the World Series trophy and insignia, the logos of the Colorado Rockies and Boston Red Sox.
Both envelopes are postmarked “Oct 27, 2007, Denver, CO” to highlight the first World Series playoff game ever played in Colorado.
