My Paul Molitor Collection Is Complete!!! YES!!!!

My Paul Molitor Collection Is Complete!!!  YES!!!!

I am thrilled to announce that I have completed my Paul Molitor collection. 

It took quite a bit longer than what I had expected or wanted, but I finally landed that pesky 1979 Topps 2nd year card, and now I have each and every major brand release of Molitor’s baseball cards from his playing days with the Milwaukee Brewers.

So, now I will do what I always do when a player collection gets finished.  Starting next Monday, I will provide to you my ‘Paul Molitor Fab 5’.

Stay tuned and enjoy!!

Thanks.

Vince Coleman 1985 Fleer Update – ROOKIE CARD!!!

Vince Coleman 1985 Fleer Update – ROOKIE CARD!!!

I am very excited to add another Vince Coleman rookie card to my collection.

Vince was one hell of a player during his early days as  a member of the Cardinals.  His speed and skill on the base paths set him apart from almost everyone else in the sport.  And had it not been for a very special player named Rickey Henderson, Vince Coleman could possibly be the best runner from the 1980’s.

It’s just too bad that Fleer did not capture the essence of Vince in the same manner that Topps did in 1985.

Looks like Wade Boggs broke out his ‘Home Run Trot’ for this 1991 Bowman baseball cards…

Do you agree??

Happy Thanksgiving From ’30-Year Old Cardboard’

Happy Thanksgiving From ’30-Year Old Cardboard’

Enjoy whatever you may have planned for the day.  Thanksgiving means different things to different people.  For me, it’s a nice afternoon with my family and some extra time to hang out with my wife and play with my 2 sons during a time that I would normally be at work and them at school. 

And maybe I’ll get to sneak in a little football too…

Have a great day!!!!  Happy Thanksgiving!!!
