I have to collect Andy since we went to the same high school. He's signed some cards and a poster for me. I know he's hurt now but he will bounce back. I will be great to have gone to school with a Hall of Famer. Just got this in a trade. 2010 Topps Peak Performance Jersey Relics #AP Andy Pettitte.

Donnie baseball. I remember pulling this card when the set came out. I only bought a few backs. Maybe six packs. I didn't know what it was worth but I thought it was just the coolest card. One of the first numbered cards too. This gold one is numbered to 5000 and the silver's were numbered to 10,000. Funny thing is I bought some packs about 10 years later in a junk box at a show and pulled another one. If he just would of played one more year he could have gotten his World Series ring. 1994 Studio Series Stars Gold #10 Don Mattingly.

In honor of Frank Thomas getting his jersey number retired today by the Chicago White Sox. I have so many cards of him. Another guy like Ken Griffey Jr that I really followed when I was younger. Frank Thomas 2002 Upper Deck Diamond Connection #563 bat piece.

Still liking this guy. Here's a pitcher that really deserves some praise. He's showing everyone he's a good pitcher. Why are his cards not skyrocketing right now? This card looks so nice and clean in person. 2010 Bowman Futures Game Triple Jersey Relic #ML Mat Latos. Numbered to 99.

Yes I know he's not a popular guy but you can't argue the numbers he consistantly puts up. He will probably break Barry Bonds homerun record but we all know that Albert Pujols will pass him over for that anyway. 2002 Upper Deck Peoples Choice Game Jersey #PJAR Alex Rodriguez.

Just got this auto of Adam Dunn in today. If you have ever seen him hit a home run you know how far he can hit a ball. It just looks so effortlessly when he swings the bat and yet he just crushes it. 2010 Topps Tribute Autograph Bat Relics #ADU3 Adam Dunn baseball card.

Got this in today. I have 4 in this set now. I think Longoria will continue to be a great player for a long time. 2010 Topps Allen and Ginter Mini Celestial Stars #CS7 Evan Longoria. Did I mention these cards come 1 per case???

He seems like he's starting to hit again. He was great last year. I hope he keeps it up. 2009 Bowman Chrome Refractors #185 Gordon Beckham and 2009 Topps Chrome Refractors #214 Gordon Beckham.

Here's some stuff I have thats a little older. These cards in pretty good condition too for being kinda used. 1973 Topps #190 Bob Gibson and 1974 Topps #350 Bob Gibson.

One of the early very cool inserts. Remember when inserts didn't include game used or auto cards? What ever happend to creativity? Say what you want to about the 90's overproduction, I love 90's inserts. The design of these cards is just appealing to me. Several great players in this set. 1996 Ultra Hitting Machines #4 Ken Griffey Jr.

Once Carl gets out of Tampa Bay and signs with a big market team he should get more recognized. This guy can do everything. Steal bases, get on base a lot, and rome the outfield with the best of them. He's also a local Houston guy too so that makes me like him even more. 2006 Artifacts AL/NL Artifacts Printing Plates Cyan #CCA Carl Crawford.

Wasn't sure whether I wanted to get this card right now with all the hype going on. In ten years if Strasburg is still pitching I'll consider this a great trade. His stuff is so awesome now it's hard not to like this guy. His cards are just so expensive I wasn't going to buy any so I traded for it. 2010 Bowman Chrome Prospects #BCP1 Stephen Strasburg rookie card.

Chipper will definitely be in the Baseball Hall of Fame one day. This is the first player I really started collecting as a young man. Until then I had really only collected sets, not caring who was in them. What a great player for kids to look up to. 2004 Leaf Certified Materials Mirror Fabric White #41 Chipper Jones jersey piece. Numbered to 200.
