UP FOR GRABS – Bob Feller 2001 Topps Archives!!!
I thought that this baseball card would make a nice holiday treat for the readers of this blog.
And since the response to my last giveaway of a Carl Yastrzemski card went so well, I thought I would try it again.
This time, up for grabs is a 2001 Topps Archives baseball card featuring Hall of Famer, and baseball legend, Mr. Bob Feller!!
Here is the card:
I resisted giving this one up, as I would love to have it in my collection. But a good home is better than no home so I am willing to part with it and pass it on to another collector that I know will cherish it.
To be eligible for the card, simply leave me a comment saying that you want it, and I will put your name into the hat. I’ll keep this post ‘sticky’ through Friday, and will announce the winner of the card Saturday morning. To make my selection, I will use one of the many web-based randomizer tools found on the web.
Get going – if you want in, let me hear it!!!

Andre Dawson 1989 Bowman – Tiffany!
Another gorgeous Tiffany baseball card for my Andre Dawson collection.
This one comes from the 1989 Bowman set – the return of a legend!!!
Just as shiny and nice as all of the other Tiffany cards I have scooped up, I am starting to wonder how these stack up against the Score and Fleer counterparts…

Eddie Murray 2011 Topps Lineage
Man, I am digging this set. Topps Lineage is exactly why I still keep an eye on the new releases – Thank You Topps!!!
I recently scooped up this card of Hall of Famer, Eddie Murray. And she is a beauty.
Have a look:
Brimming with team-themed colors, this card screams Baltimore Orioles – which happens to be my favorite Murray-era. And the uniform Murray is sporting in this photo is exactly the era that I prefer – the 1980s!!!
Oh, and don’t forget that cure little logo in the lower-right hand corner of the card – my favorite bird!!!
