Bryce Harper 2014 Bowman – Nevada State Variation
Word on the street is that my buddy, #34, is working his way back into playing shape and getting ready to put in more ‘baseball activity’ in time for a return to the majors in July.
I cannot wait to see him come back. And I only hope that he comes back with the same level of ferocity that he has shown in his first few seasons as a big-leaguer – just maybe a tad sharper of a base runner.
Get back soon Bryce. We’re waiting for you!!
This is his ‘State’ card from the 2014 Bowman set. I have yet to grab his base card from the set, and I will do that in time, but I was able to snag this one for $0.25 during a shopping spree on Sportlots.com with one of my favorite sellers.

Giancarlo Stanton 2011 Topps Opening Day All-Star Rookie
I continue to peck away at ‘older’ cards of Giancarlo Stanton for my player collection.
And since he has only been in the league for five seasons, ‘older’ tends to mean baseball cards that are 3-5 years old.
My most recent score is this 2011 Topps Opening Day All-Star rookie card.
Have a look:
I am a big fan of the Opening Day set, and it is nice to add another Stanton from this brand into my collection.
I do wish that the Topps All-Star rookie cup was bigger and put in a more prominent spot on the card – if gets a little lost in the upper-right corner if you ask me…
Still, another great addition to my Stanton PC!!
