Baseball Card Show Purchase #1 – Lot Of 3 Billy Hamilton Rookie Cards!!

Baseball Card Show Purchase #1 – Lot Of 3 Billy Hamilton Rookie Cards!!

While not purposely seeking out these cards, there was no way that I was going to pass them up either.

Billy Hamilton is one of the most exciting young stars in the game and I have watched him become an even better player as the season has progressed.  His skills on offense always revolved around his ability to run, but now he has become a good hitter.  Not yet great, but definitely good.  And from there, he uses his wheels to make things happen and put runs on the board for the Reds.

I hope to see even more improvement from him in 2015 as he gets more comfortable at the plate and with his role as the leadoff hitter and offense generator.

I picked up each of these cards for just $0.25 each.

And if I can find more cards of Hamilton in that price range, I will do it again.

He’s got my vote for the NL ROY.  Does he have yours too?

Among The ‘Normal’ Guys I Will Be Watching During The 2014 Season, Here Are A Few More I Will Be Paying Attention To As Well…

Among The ‘Normal’ Guys I Will Be Watching During The 2014 Season, Here Are A Few More I Will Be Paying Attention To As Well…

We are right around 36 hours away from the official start to the 2014 baseball season.  You better believe that I will be starting my day by listening to some games on my IPhone and then ending my night watching my Marlins host the Colorado Rockies.

It is going to be a great season.

In addition to the standard crop of guys that I will be watching as the season progresses, here are a few more guys that I am going to be paying attention to.  Each of them offers a great level of skill and enthusiasm to the game, and I am eager to see how their seasons unfold.

Have I paid attention to these guys prior to this season?  Of course I have.  But, I believe that each of these guys will have some level of impact on the game this year – both minor and major.  It may be huge headlines, and it may be record-breaking performances, but I think that you will be hearing the names of these players a lot in 2014 – and I am ready!

I cannot wait to watch it all unfold!!

Is there anyone you think is ready to make a huge impact this season?  Are you paying special attention to someone new this year?

Let’s go!
