When I have some spare funds in my account, I scour Ebay for some of cards that will fit into my collection. I type in some of my favorite players names and see what goods I could purchase. Sadly, this doesn't happen too often because I rarely have much disposable income.
I got my federal tax return a couple weeks ago. This gave me a little extra cash to spend on my cardboard addiction. I decided to search Ebay and find one card that is a little pricier than I usually spend on one card.
I have been looking at posts from Zakwin from the Plaschke, Thy Sweater is Argyle blog. Zakwin has been building up a nice Al Rosen collection. I was starting to get jealous and every time he would post an Al Rosen card, it made me search even harder for one of his cards.
Zakwin also mentioned to me that he had bid on this same auction but, I beat him out!! Sorry, Zakwin, your Al Rosen collection has already been started. My Rosen collection is just beginning with a bang.
Beltre and Rosen are grouped together on this card because they are both third baseman and they are both power hitters. Rosen hit 43 bombs in his MVP year of '53. He also had a 10 year career with a career OPS+ of 136.
While, looking at this card, I am digging the wool jersey that Rosen is wearing. I like the big patch of the Indians logo on his sleeve. Do they make Al Rosen throwback jerseys?
I don't think I have seen one worn by a rapper in a music video.
