Fergie Jenkins 2011 Topps Triple Threads Game-Used Jersey Card w/Pinstripe!!!
For some reason the Jenkins cards from this year’s Triple Threads release are selling like wild-fire. And while I like the cards (I am partial to all cards that feature Fergie), I just don’t know why this one is the one that attracting all of the extra loot.
Still, I was able to manage my emotions and I waited until one fell into the price range that I prefer.
And here it is:
I am liking the card and it’s design. But I am loving that pinstripe!!!
Oh, and the card is XX/XX.

Dave Winfield 2004 Upper Deck Legends ‘Timeless Teams’
When I think of Dave Winfield, I think Yankees and Padres. And I don’t believe that I am alone with that thought process.
But, when it comes to championships, it was the Toronto Blue Jays with which Winfield tasted his lone success.
And this card celebrates that. The headline reads, ‘Key Double Gives Blue Jays First Title’. Winfield’s hit in the 11th inning of Game 6 is the one that clinched the championship for the Jays. And to this day, I remember being so happy watching him celebrate – I am certain that he played that exact moment out on his head thousands of times as a kid!!

Kirby Puckett 1986 Donruss Highlights
What d0 you think about this beauty?
Ok, so maybe she is not that foxy of a baseball card, but what the card represents is solid!!
During the first month of the 1986 baseball season, Kirby Puckett dominated the American League – and he rightfully won the ‘Player of the Month’ award for his efforts.
What I like most about this little factoid, and baseball card, is that he started off the season with a bang. Coming off of his rookie season, I love that you can see that he continued to work – not just satisfied to have made it in the big leagues, but always working on staying and making an impact.
Atta Boy Kirby!!!

The starting pitcher with the most wins in the post-1900 era to not have appeared in a World Series is Phil Niekro. The Hall of Famer won 318 games during his career, but never reached the ‘Fall Classic’.
