Reggie Jackson 2001 Upper Deck UD Decades ‘Disco Era Dandies’
My friends, sometimes a card company just gets it right.
The card theme is matched perfectly by the card’s design. And you get a work of art.
Upper Deck was excellent at doing this. And this card of Reggie Jackson from their 2001 UD Decades ‘Disco Era Dandies’ is an awesome baseball card.

Andrew McCutchen 2014 Topps – Base
When I was putting away cards the other night, I got to my Andrew McCutchen collection and realized that while I had shown off the 2014 Topps Opening Day card of ‘Cutch’ that I picked up at my local baseball card show, I never showed off the base card from the 2014 issue that I picked up prior.
So, here it is:
The card is the same as the Opening Day card that was issued a few months after. The lone difference is that the Opening Day card has a very classic ‘Opening Day’ logo on the front as well.
I love that swing!

1965 HEADLINE: Orioles’ Jim Palmer Makes Major League Debut
On this day in 1965, Jim Palmer made his major league debut.
The appearance came in a relief effort as starting pitcher Robin Roberts got battered by the Red Sox in the first two innings of the game. Palmer entered the game in the third inning and pitched the 3rd and 4th for the O’s. In the two innings of work, Palmer allowed just 1 hit while striking out 1 batter and walking 2.
The Orioles lost the game 9-12. Palmer did not factor in the decision.

Andre Dawson 2005 Upper Deck Artifacts Game-Used Jersey Relic Card
I’m not sure how I overlooked this card for as long as I did, but I always thought that I had it in my collection.
Yes, my Andre Dawson relic collection has more than 100 cards in it, but I maintain a pretty well-organized checklist of the cards I own, but I must have just missed this one altogether.
It wasn’t until the card you see below came across Ebay that I checked my list of cards to see if I did. The reason I went back? I was not sure the one I owned was serial numbered – and if it was not, than this would be another unique card for my collection. So, I checked, and the card was not listed. Then I went to the box that holds my Dawson relic cards (in order by year and brand, of course) and it was not there either.
So, I bought it! Plain and simple. And now I have a new relic card of Andre Dawson in my collection. And it is serial numbered as 133/325.
