Just Some Random Cards to Pass the Time Until Another Post.

Vote on the poll to the right of your screen, it's anonymous. You have 14 days left! I want to see what everyone thinks of the candidates.

Here's the first post I have made since last April. With the process of getting everything transferred over to a new computer and not having time, I don't have any pictures of cards or anything. Here's some that I found lying around in some folder on my computer.

Here is a Jackie Robinson card I bought at the old Yankee Stadium. Don't know why I bought a Jackie Robinson card in a Yankee store when I could have bought any other Yankee item. It came in a "bullet-proof case", not really but that's what it looks like, haha. It's one of the clear plastic cases with the screw, but it is really thick. I think this card looks pretty cool.

Here is a Timeless Talents 2012 insert card of Roger Maris and Curtis Granderson. I wish the title of this card was true for the Yankees' postseason this year. At least they made it to the ALCS, I really don't know how they got that far.

And lastly here is another insert card of the original and famous "Honus Wagner card". Even if it is a reprint and not even the same dimensions as the original, I still think it is pretty awesome.

and that's it for now, come back in 4 months and, maybe and hopefully you will see another post. Hope everyone has a good rest of October!

More 2012 Topps!

After taking a longer than short but not long spring break, I'm back to post more! With baseball season starting, I have been more on the field then in the wonderful world of collecting. But alas, I'm back! Well at least for a few posts. As a quick side note, Thanks William for the cards, I can't keep up with the posts. Haha. Back to the post, these 2012 Topps I picked up about a month ago and I must say, either they put in a lot of really awesome inserts or I got really lucky. I opened at least three Mickey Mantle cards and a whole lot of more awesome ones as well. Here's a few:

Here is an Eli Whiteside gold card. Dustin Eli Whiteside made his debut in 2005 for the Orioles and played a whopping 9 games. After that he was in the minors until he came back up in 2009 for the Giants. He has done decent in a 196 games and 478 ABs hitting .218 and accumulating 10 HRs in that span. In the middle is Miguel Olivo. I'm sure you have heard of him. The one on the right is good ole Nyjer Morgan, who has been all over the place from Pittsburgh to the Nats to Milwaukee. 

These are Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio "Golden Great" cards. Nothing much else to say other than these guys were Legends!

Here is a "Timeless Talents" of Andre Dawson and Justin Upton.

These two are "Classic Walk-offs" of Jim Thome and the other of Magglio Ordonez.

Here are "Gold Futures" of Jose Tabata and Jason Kipnis.

And finally, these are the "Golden Moments" of Tom Seaver, Roy Halladay and Jered Weaver. As much as I don't like the Mets, I do agree that Tom Seaver was no doubtingly a Hall of Famer. As for Roy Halladay and Jered Weaver, they are both on the road there as well.

Nice New 2012 Topps

I'm back after about a month break and I have quite a lot to post, so hopefully everyone will come back to see my next few posts. 
Recently I opened one of those $19.99 boxes of the new 2012 Topps. (I can never really remember what there are called, hobby boxes?) I must say all the inserts they put in are really awesome. I still have to crop the pictures of the other cards. This post will be kind of short since they are not cropped but I did get one cropped so far and it was the special Historical Patch inserts. I pulled a Ryne Sandberg one which was pretty awesome!
 If you didn't know he played for the Cubs for his whole career except for his rookie year in which he played for the Phillies, he was drafted by the Phillies in 1978. There is plenty more about him if you don't know, for the majority I'd say most people know a lot about him.

Brandon Belt...

Have you heard of him? Giants fans should have because he played 63 games for them last year.
I found this bio on MLB.com of him and found it pretty interesting, but it's kind of long and I'm a little short on time so I'll just paste it:

Married (Haylee)...Attended University of Texas...led Longhorns to College World Series in 2009 after pacing team in batting avg. (.319)...earned All-Big 12 Honorable Mention in 2008...overall, batted .321 (152-for-473) with 14 HRs and 108 RBI in 124 games in his 2 seasons at Texas...Before going to Texas, played one year for San Jacinto College in Houston and was pitcher and designated hitter...batted .441 with 10 HRs to receive All-Conference designated hitter honors and 2007 Juco World Series Big Stick Award for 3rd ranked Gators as freshman...Was selected by Atlanta Braves in 11th round of 2007 First-Year Player Draft, but did not sign...Graduated from Hudson High School in Lufkin, Texas...as senior, garnered district MVP, All-State and All-America honors...Was selected by Boston Red Sox in 11th round of 2006 First-Year Player Draft, but did not sign.

The reason I'm writing about him, or pasting other people's writings about him, is because I find him to be one of this year's good fantasy draft picks. I have done little to no research for my fantasy team this year, but none the less if you hadn't picked a decent first baseman early like Pujols, Teixeira, Fielder, just to name a few; this guy is your guy to pick...maybe. He will definitively be my pick if I can't get any of the top names! 

I learned of Brandon Belt from getting some of his cards in one of my recent packs. Here's one card:

I found a liking in him, just as I did with Ryan Freel and Michael Bourn. I guess it just the players that if you aren't a fan of the team and don't follow baseball as closely as others do, then you won't know about them. Those kind of players.

And I wish good luck to all the fantasy players and team owners out there for a productive season!

Some Cards From a Couple Weeks Ago That I was Not able to Post.

Hi everybody! Hope everyone's having a good weekend so far. 
More cards come in the mail from William. Thanks William!
I haven't been able to get them posted for a while, but here they are!
A Casey McGreen and a Jeffrey Hammonds - USA cards.
The Jeffrey Hammonds card is from 1991, I didn't know there was a USA team than!
The Casey McGreen card is more recent.

I don't really know what else to say other than Thanks to William and more cards to add to my USA Collection!

I looked up Casey McGreen on Google and nothing for him came up. And for Jeffrey Hammonds, he played on 6 different teams in the MLB and got drafted in the 1st round in the 1992 amateur draft. He Debut in 1993 and played until 2005. In that time span he had 110 home runs and a lifetime average of  .272.

Super Bowl Anyone?

Who's ready for one of the biggest games on television this year? You know, the Super Bowl. The game that's on every year and cost about a million or more for a thirty second commercial time slot. As much as I am looking forward to the commercials, my favorite team is playing; the New York Giants. So I'm pretty excited for the big game! GO Giants!

And for a picture to go with this post...a card I got yesterday...an Eli Manning card!

GO Giants!!!!!!

A One of a Kind Card, Literally

        Another post in January! Last weekend there was this card show down in White Plains like I think there is every month. A guy named Mason Williams was going to be signing there and since I recently opened a card of him, I wanted to get it signed! Unfortunately, I could not go, so I got my good friend Drew, from Drewscards to get it signed. THANKS Drew!

Thanks Mason Williams!
  Even if you spelled my name wrong. It's ok though because "y" and "i" sound similar.

And Thanks Drew, again!

I hope everybody has a great week!
