I Now Have 211 Different Andre Dawson Cards

I have spent quite a bit of time sorting through and reorganizing my Andre Dawson cards.  Once my collecting goal of obtaining all of Andre’s cards from 1977-89 was achieved, I knew I wanted to expand and go after more.  I quickly realized that the only way for me to do this was by building my own checklist and keeping it as detailed as possible so I could quickly review it when a new Dawson card surfaced.

Below is the result of my work.

I am proud to say that as of today, I own 211 different Andre Dawson baseball cards.  Lucky for me that there is still quite a bit more out there to be had!!!!

1983 Topps Super Veteran Set Update

30 down and just 5 to go. 

This set has been a blast to collect and I have learned quite a bit about these guys as I have shown them off to you.  I am eager to obtain the last 5 cards of this set so I can mark off another piece to my collection as being complete.  And I am sure that I will learn more about Tug McGraw, Nolan Ryan, Tony Perez, Kent Tekulve, and Sparky Lyle in the process.

Stay tuned – the final 5 cards should be all mine in the coming weeks!!!

Happy Birthday Roy Halladay!!!

Roy Halladay turns 32 years old today!!

Halladay is my favorite pitcher in today’s game that has never been affiliated with the Florida Marlins.  His style and approach on the mound reminds me of Fergie Jenkins and I believe that the 2 of these guys were and are very under-appreciated in comparison to their peers.

This 12-year veteran is a 5-time All-star that has already won 1 Cy Young Award and placed in the Top 5 three more times.  ‘Doc’ has been the picture of consistency for the Toronto Blue Jays for more than a decade now and he continues to deliver impressive numbers year after year.

Halladay has never made a post-season appearance so that is what I would like to give him for his birthday.  His Blue Jays team is in first place in the American League East and it would be great to see Halladay lead the Jays past the powerhouses in their division.  As we all know, with the playoffs comes recognition and respect.  And it’s about time that the baseball world recognized and respected Mr. Roy Halladay!!!

Happy Birthday Roy!!!
