Very few bloggers out there have the ability to see my collection and fill in the gaps for me, without ever actually seeing my baseball card collection. Night Owl is the Godfather of the Blog World and deserves royal treatment for being a trader with special powers. Well, that is how he gets treated at the Platter. He probably gets rougher treatment at many other establishments.
Since, I have picked up a new laptop, my haves lists have been getting updated more frequently. I still have a big stack of Dodgers to go through and catalog on Microsoft Excell. One day I will hire a secretary to catalog my collection. Just a person that will type out the cards I have and let me know what cards I am looking for. I still enjoy putting new Dodgers in binders. I will never give my secretary that job.
Oh wait, I probably will never even have a secretary that tends to my cataloging needs.
Seeing modern cards with past players got me to thinking. The card companies will always put past players in there recent releases. Collectors for the most part like seeing the past stars of there team on new cardboard with touched up photos. So, this trend will never end in the collecting world. Since, I am a big collector of Clayton Kershaw and Matt Kemp, I will have an endless supply of there cards to collect.
My Kemp and Kershaw collection will go on forever.
What exactly is he doing? His legs seem to be in an awkward position. Is he dancing? Maybe the snapshot caught him doing the Ickey Shuffle.
I hope that Dee Gordon does well on the field. Of course, I do because I am a Doyer fan. But, I also hope that Gordon's career on baseball cards is superb as well. He is a high energy, speedster that makes spectacular fielding plays. Gordon is destined for cardboard glory!
