Tony Gwynn 2009 SP Legendary Cuts Game-Used Jersey Card

Tony Gwynn 2009 SP Legendary Cuts Game-Used Jersey Card

Another Hall 0f Fame relic card for the collection – SWEET!!!

And who wouldn’t want to add a game-used relic card of one of the game’s greatest hitters to their collection?  I know I would, so I did…

Serial numbered 71/75, this card comes from the 2009 SP Legendary Cuts set.  The image of Gwynn is an older shot – I just wish that the relic featured the old Pardes’ colors too.

Still, it’s a pretty awesome looking baseball card!!

Hey, check it out.  Another vintage beauty for my growing collection – YES!!!

And while the card lacks quite a bit of personality and flare, the same cannot be said for Gibson’s 1973 season.

The numbers – 25 starts, 12-10 record, 13 complete games, 1 shutout, 2.77 ERA, 142 strikeouts, 57 walks, 60 runs surrendered.

Not too shabby for a 37-year old, 15-year veteran!!!

Great sideburns too!!!

Happy Anniversary Eddie Murray!!!

Happy Anniversary Eddie Murray!!!

On this day in 1995 Eddie Murray collected the 3,000th hit of his amazing baseball career!!!

In his 19th big league season while playing DH for the Cleveland Indians, Murray joined baseball’s elite group of hitters.

In the 6th inning, he smacked a single off of Mike Trombley of the Minnesota Twins and that moment became history!!!

Murray ended his baseball career with 3,225 hits which currently ranks him in 12th place in baseball history.

Congratulations Mr. Murray!!!
