Roy Oswalt 2008 SP Legendary Cuts Destined for History Memorabilia


Roy Oswalt 2008 SP Legendary Cuts Destined for History Memorabilia Jersey baseball card.  What the heck is going on with this guy?  Once so dominate and now it just seems like he's tanking this year.  I really like Roy but it's getting hard to stay loyal to him.  Hope he can turn it around this year.

In honor of Roy Halladay's Perfect Game



Phillies' Roy Halladay throws perfect game vs. Marlins, May 29th, 2010.  Here is my 1997 Bowman Chrome #212 Roy Halladay rookie card.  Right now it sits at a Beckett book value of $25.  Hopefully, that will change greatly in time.  Roy just doesn't get the respect he deserves in the baseball card world.  If you don't enjoy watching him pitch then you just don't get how baseball is played.  There is no doubt to me that one day Halladay will be in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Buy a Stephen Strasburg baseball card or a car?




Stephen Strasburg.  If you follow baseball you must have heard of this guy by now.  Right now there is a ebay auction going on and you won't beleive what one of his baseball cards are going for.  The card is a 2010 Bowman Chrome Superfractor 1/1.  71 bids so far for a grand total of $14,099. Oh yeah, and there's still 3 days left.  Did I mention he hasn't thrown one pitch yet for the Washington Nationals?  Better yet, he still in the minors.  This is too crazy for me.  I don't understand why someone would pay that much for an unproven player.  I don't think he'll be a bust but imagine if he gets hurt early in his career or if he just gets killed by MLB hitters.  So happy bidding on this one.

Former MLB pitcher Jose Lima found dead at home


Former MLB pitcher Jose Lima found dead at home.  He was only 37 years old.  I can remember watching him pitch for the Houston Astros.  He had so much energy.  Former teammates of his said he was the life of the clubhouse.  I really enjoyed watching him pitch.  Tragic and sad.  Hope nothing bad comes out about him.

Roy Halladay 2009 UD A Piece of History Franchise History Jersey Red


Roy got roughed up today but that's ok.  He's still a great pitcher and is destined for Cooperstown when it's all said and done.

How to Collect Baseball Cards | eHow.com

Here is a article about how to start collecting cards if you never have before.  You don't have to have expensive cards.  There are lots of economical baseball cards out there to collect.  You can collect sets or certain players.  When I started out it was just about collecting cards.  I didn't care who or what kind of card it was.  I just wanted as many cards as I could get my hands on.

Dale Murphy 2005 Zenith Z-Jerseys #91

My favorite player of all time is Dale Murphy.  Grew up watching him on WTBS, not TBS.  Yes that shows my age a little but thats ok.  Hope to see him in the Hall of Fame one day.
