2007 Donruss Elite Extra Edition Aspirations #118 Matt Domiguez /100



I don't know why I collect Astros sometimes.  I always seem to buy high and then they just fade away.  Really like watching this guy so hopefully that doesn't happen this time.  2007 Donruss Elite Extra Edition Aspirations #118 Matt Domiguez /100.

2013 Topps Archives Gold #165 Stephen Strasburg /199



I had no idea what this card looked liked before I traded for it on Beckett but I am really diggin' it.  The original 1990 set is pretty much worthless but this set really looks good now and it helps bring back the past as well.  2013 Topps Archives Gold #165 Stephen Strasburg /199.

This is really bad.  Shame on ESPN for this.  Article directly from Yahoo website.

Yes, that ESPN screenshot really does list Nagiru Hiramatsu's favorite singer as "Wandai Wrection." If you've never heard of Mr. Wrection, well, it's because he actually doesn't exist.
On the other hand, One Direction is an actual band made up of actual English and Irish boys. You may have also never heard of it, but rest assured that it does exist and it was presumably the group that Hiramatsu named in a heavy accent to some poor sap ESPN producer who then took a guess at his or her own spelling without asking the Japanese teenager to clarify.
Why would the producer do that? Well, my best guess is that said producer never imagined that his or her career would entail asking Little League baseball players about their favorite music and so he or she just scribbled something down without any further questions because who watches ESPN's endless coverage of Little League baseball anyway?
Turns out a lot of people do. "Wandai Wrection" zoomed across Twitter on Monday night, landing on sites like Deadspin and Awful Announcing while reminding people of the recent pilot names snafu on KTVU. While it may not have been as woefully ignorant as reporting that a pilot was named "Sum Ting Wong," this lost in translation moment is still worth a forehead slap or two.

Here is a new set I am collecting some of my players from.  Wasn't sure what to think since this set was not cut by the manufacture but by a third party.  This card is super clean.  1984 Nestle 792 #30 Wade Boggs.

2011 Bowman Platinum Prospects X-Fractors #BPP34 Jurickson Profar

2010 Bowman Platinum #1 Stephen Strasburg


Got this in a recent trade on Beckett.  Gave up a 1997 Bowman Chrome R.A. Dickey rookie card.  I'd do that trade any day.  It is nice being able to afford his cards now instead of how high they were a few years ago.  2010 Bowman Platinum #1 Stephen Strasburg RC.

2012 Topps Golden Moments Die Cuts #GMDC74 Pablo Sandoval


Watched him play on TV a couple of days ago.  He hit a homerun and it just looked really hard for him to round the bases.  Almost looked like Cecil Fielder right before he retired if you know what I mean.  2012 Topps Golden Moments Die Cuts #GMDC74 Pablo Sandoval.  I'm collecting these if you have any for trade by the way.
