Pete Rose & ’30-Year Old Cardboard’
This post marks #4,192 of the blog.
4,192 is a baseball number that will last for the lifetime of the sport.
So, I am now firmly affixed in second place behind Pete Rose. Something tells me that if I play my cards right, I will be catching up to ‘Charlie Hustle’ in about 3-4 weeks.
Stay tuned to find out. And THANK YOU all for the tremendous support!!!

Ryne Sandberg 2004 Fleer Greats
I wouldn’t call myself a Ryne Sandberg fan, but I do respect what he did on the field at Wrigley.
But I don’t consider myself a Ryne Sandberg collector either. In fact, I probably have less than five cards of Ryno, and I am fine with that.
And one of those five cards is this one – from the 2004 Fleer Greats set.
The card looks pretty good, huh? Yeah, I know. No matter who Fleer threw into this set, the cards all look fantastic. From the colors to the pictures used to the great frame that holds it all together – Fleer did a fantastic job with this issue!!
