Andre Dawson 2001 Upper Deck Minor League Centennial Game-Used Jersey Card

Andre Dawson 2001 Upper Deck Minor League Centennial Game-Used Jersey Card

Kind of a fun game-used relic card of Dawson for the collection…

This one, issued by Upper Deck in 2001, honors Andre’s time in the minor leagues as a member of the Denver Zephyrs.  Serial numbered as 12/25, I already had the base version of this card from the set so it is nice to add its partner.

And while the card’s relic does not come from a minor league jersey of Dawson’s, it is still from a jersey that was used during his professional career(as the back states).

Enjoy!

Joe Morgan 1968 Topps

Joe Morgan 1968 Topps

Time for another great vintage addition to my Joe Morgan collection.  This time around, it is the 1968 Topps base card that I was able to pick up.

Very boring in design, and a terribly photo choice on top of that, the ’68 set offered up some very memorable cards – but this is definitely not one of them.

Check for yourself…

Told Ya!!!

Happy Birthday Albert Pujols!!!

Albert Pujols turns 31 years old today.

Arguably the best player in baseball this decade, Pujols has amassed some incredible numbers prior to his 31st birthday.  Already a 3-time MVP winner and World Series champion, Pujols is quickly racking up statistics that mirror or surpass some of baseball’s greatest players.  With a career batting average of .331, and with 1,900 hits in just 10 seasons, the sky is the limit for this talented hitter.  And don’t forget about the 408 home runs and 1,230 RBI Albert has already accumulated too.

We may be looking at the new Home Run King!!!

Happy Birthday to ‘The Machine’.
