Josh Johnson Collection Up For Grabs!!!

Josh Johnson Collection Up For Grabs!!!

Come one, come all – I am offering up my entire collection of Josh Johnson baseball cards to a good home.

I am a fan of Josh Johnson.  I cheer for Josh Johnson.  I just have no more interest in collecting Josh Johnson’s baseball cards. 

When I originally decided to start collecting cards of JJ, I was trying my best to seek enjoyment in collecting a modern player.  Well, just a few months later that excitement has fizzled, and here I am with a pretty solid 41-card collection that pays tribute to my favorite hurler that wears Black, Teal, and White.  Chock full of goodies, this small collection contains a very nice assortment of cards including several rookies.

What do I want in return, you ask?  Not much – not much at all.  Simply make me an offer and I will accept the best one thrown my way.  I am a vintage guy so if you want to get a head up on the other collectors that may be interested in these cards of JJ, offer me up a card or stack of cards that features old-school players.

Here is the JJ collection that you will get.

If interested, simply leave a comment on this post and if you’re chosen as my trade partner, I will be in touch with you!


‘My First Time’ – Carlos Beltran – September 14, 1998

‘My First Time’ – Carlos Beltran – September 14, 1998

The setting – Kaufman Stadium, Kansas City, MO

From Beltran – ‘Both my mom and dad made it to the game, because they had been in Wichita, where I had been playing Double-A.  We drove from Wichita to Kansas City together, and my dad looked very proud the whole way there, that his son was going to the big leagues.  That was his dream.  When I got that first hit, I gave him the ball, and he still has it as his home.’

The Boxscore – Royals 16, A’s 8.  Beltran was 1-for-1 with a single and a walk.  He also scored two runs in the Royals win.

Fergie Jenkins 2000 Fleer ‘Greats Of The Game’

Fergie Jenkins 2000 Fleer ‘Greats Of The Game’

Man, my new Fergie Jenkins collection has really started to take shape in 2011.

And this card from the 2000 Fleer ‘Greats Of The Game’ set is my latest and one of my greatest additions.

I love the card – I love the horizontal design – I love the colors – and I love that action photo of Fergie!!!

And those old wool Cubs uniforms are pretty sweet too, huh??

Gary Carter 1980 Topps

Gary Carter 1980 Topps

Now this is a great action photo!!

Here we have a young, and dirt covered, Gary Carter holding the baseball in his gloved hand high and proudly in the air.

The 1980 Topps baseball card design is a classic one.  And while this card of Carter is not the most popular one from the set, that title goes to Rickey Henderson’s rookie card, it is one of the best designed ones.

With a Blue frame that works perfectly with the color of Carter’s chest protector, the card is centered very well.  And the banners on both the top and bottom of the card’s picture work very well too. 

Surprisingly the Yellow and Brown don’t hurt the card’s look at all…
