C.J. Wilson on David Letterman’s Top Ten.
Vladimir Guerrero notches his 2,587th career hit to establish a new hits record for players born in the Dominican Republic.
Remember my post last week about my extra cards from the Jim Gilliam / Frank Howard lot? Well here they are, and they are all available for trade!
1969 Topps “Bird Hill Aces” “Aces” might be a bit of a stretch. A great card for an Orioles fan, doesn’t do much for me though.
1961 Topps Red Shoendienst. There’s no room for cartoons with all those stats on the back. I’m not really a fan of players not wearing hats on their cards.
1953 Bowman Gil Coan This card is well loved. It has rounded corners, scuffs, and creases. I love vintage cards but there is just no creativity to the fronts of 1953 Bowman. I’m sure it was impressive to reproduce a color photo back in 1953 but these cards can’t even come close to competing with the hand painted beauty that was ‘53 Topps. The back of the card is wonderful though. I think I’d be pretty upset of my baseball card pointed out my previous year’s slump.
1964 Topps Angels Rookie Stars I love the ‘64 Rookies design and Bob Lee’s menacing face on this card. But it’s the Angels, and two unspectacular players. The card is in great condition though, maybe someone needs it for their set?
