I currently have stacks of cards on my bedside mantle. The stacks have never been this big before. This is a good and bad thing. The good is that I have tons of baseball cards. The bad is that I have to take the time to catalog and put them in there own resting place.
The stacks are separated by trade bait, computer catalog, and straight to binder cards. I also have a growing stack of commons that I put in boxes based on year and set.
I also have a bunch of trade packages that I have to sift through. I have already opened all of them to see the awesome cardboard that people send me. Now, I just need to write a post about them.
Newly married Ryan "O" Another Orioles Blog, sent me a really grand trade package a few weeks ago. I sent him a Cal Ripken Jr. GU and he sent me a slew of cards that fit my PC. One of those cards that he sent me is a classic early 90s Upper Deck card of Fernando. I love the triple photograph displaying Fernando's wind-up.
Kinsler is repping the Texas Rangers in the World Series that is currently being played. Kinsler is one of the reasons that I am rooting for the Rangers to beat the Cardinals. Despite my last statement, I hope the Cardinals win the next game because Game 7s are the golden game of sports. I am pulling for a Game 7 Rangers victory because of the excitement that will bring to baseball.
This is the best Beltre GU that I have. I love the low serial number and the enlarged jersey piece that Upper Deck crammed in there.
Guzman never panned out in the big leagues. Guzman was given a big bonus by the Dodgers back in the time when the Dodgers actually tried to sign top teens from the Dominican.
This card has a piece of jersey from the Futures Game. Ryan was nice enough to send this to me because I may be the only guy to appreciate a Joel Guzman card. Except, maybe for Guzman's mother.
Thanks for the trade,Ryan!
