More Pictures From The Fergie Jenkins & Greg Maddux Jersey Retirement Ceremony…

These pictures are courtesy of Chirs from ‘Project ’62’.  His seats were along the first base side, and YES I am extremely jealous!!!

Thanks for the great pics Chris!!!

I paid $0.99 for 225 Andre Dawson Baseball Cards!!!

What can I say, I had to jump all over this auction.  I brought home 225 Andre Dawson cards and paid $5.99 for the lot including shipping.

Talk about a ‘No-Brainer’!!!

I am working on a new way to organize my Dawson collection and should have some more information about how this collection has grown for you soon.  Stay tuned.

In the meantime, enjoy the bounty!!
