Serial Numbered Goods From The Sports Card Forum

The Sports Card Forum is a great site for trading, buying and selling cards.  I find some great deals every now and again.  I also see more people posting some cards that aren't considered to be the "biggest hits."  This means that more people sell some random serial numbered cards or some cool inserts.

Being able to find some cards that I have never even seen in person is wonderful.  This may be the greatest era to be a card collector.  There are so many options and ways to obtain cardboard, thanks to the internet.

Cheers to computers!

A very nice seller on the Sports Card Forum sent me some really awesome Dodgers cards.  These are two Paul Lo Duca cards.  The 2004 Topps Gold is #ed/2004 and the 2007 Topps '52 is #ed/552.

I really like the look of retro cards when they are chromed out.  When retro meets new school on cardboard it is the perfect blend of different eras.

This card is one of my favorite in my Steve Garvey collection.  This card has a sweet holographic touch with a nice background photo of Dodger Stadium.  This card comes from the 2004 Donruss Timelines set.  Also, just to show even more class, the serial number out of 100 is also shiny.  Donruss baseball cards equals high quality.

Garvey has been mentioned for sometime now as a potential partner in an ownership group to purchase the Dodgers.  I know that Garvey was a really good ball player.  I still don't want him to be in a position of power in the Dodgers organization.  Garvey can get back with the team as a community relations guy and do some appearences on behalf of the team.  But, he just seems to slimy to be a shot caller in the Dodgers front office.  He has had too many indescretions off the field to be fully trusted.

  One of the great things about the internet is that it enabled me to find this random card of Kaz Ishii.  There was no other way that I would have been able to find this card anywhere else but, online. 

This card features one of the dullest photos of Kaz Ishii.  Ishii never looked comfortable as a Dodger.  He had no control on the mound and seemed to have bland facial expressions.  So, he probably took a lot of dull photos during his Dodger career.  This photo is the dullest of them all though.

This card is from a set called 2002 Upper Deck Diamond Collection and is serial #ed/1500.  I am not even sure if 1500 packs were opened of this product.  This set came out during a dead period in my collecting life.  I don't remember ever seeing a card from this set before. 

One more thing:
The Oakland Raiders are in first place in the AFC West!
