Andre Dawson 2004 Donruss Playoff Honors “CREDITS” #8/25
When you are a player collector that cannot get enough, you have to start maximizing your searches. You have to go where no man has gone before. You have to search and hunt and wait and wait some more.
And if you do all of that, you will be rewarded.
Just like I was when I picked up this low-serial numbered card, numbered as 8/25. Issued in 2004 by Donruss as part of their Playoff brand, I already owned this base card.
It’s nice to grab its harder-to-find brother!!

Juan Marichal 2000 Topps – ’50 Years Of Topps’
If you’re going to issue a re-print, make it a good one!
And that is exactly what Topps did when they issued this card of Hall of Famer, Juan Marichal with their ’50 Years Of Topps’ set issued in 2000.
The card, a re-print of the 1962 Topps set, looks fantastic.
And that Gold logo commemorating Topps’ 50 years sets the card off is grand style…

Happy Birthday Kirk Gibson!!!
Kirk Gibson turns 54 years old today.
Images of Kirk Gibson’s fist-pumping, leg-limping jog around the bases during Game 1 of the World Series is undoubtedly the first thing that baseball fans remember when Gibson’s name is mentioned. That night turned Gibson from a very good everyday player into a baseball legend!! Very few people remember that this was Gibson’s lone appearance in that ’88 title match-up. It’s amazing how with 1 swing of the bat, Gibson etched his place in baseball history and created a moment that none of us will soon forget!!!
Few recall that just 4 years prior as a member of the Detroit Tigers Gibson won his first championship. In that ’84 series, Gibson hit .333 in 6 games while collecting 6 hits, 2 home runs, 7 RBI, and 3 stolen bases. Some players just have a knack for making their presence felt during the most necessary times, and Gibson is certainly that player.
Happy Birthday Mr. Gibson!!!
