2009 Upper Deck Signature Stars #201 David Price

Man, this guy is on fire right now.  Just picked up this 2009 Upper Deck Signature Stars #201 David Price baseball card in a trade on  Just watched him pitch a complete game shutout the other day.  Hopefully, he continues to play great so this card and the other two autographs I have of him keep on going up.  This card right now is around $25 in book value.

Albert Pujols 2005 Zenith Spellbound Jerseys #14

Got this 2005 Albert Pujols jersey card in trade on  Actually got two of them.  In this set, you can collect every letter of his name with a jersey piece in it.  So I got the A and T.  Thinking of collecting them all now.  After Arod breaks the homerun record Albert will break it next.

B.J. Upton 2007 Exquisite Collection Rookie Signatures Signature Materials #BU

I saw this card and just had to have it.  B.J. Upton of the Tampa Bay Rays.  Don't really care for the signature though.  Can barely tell what the name says.  It's kind of disappointing when you get a auto card and the signature is really bad but hey I really like Upton so I guess I'll just deal with it.

1994 Fleer Update #86 Alex Rodriguez BGS 9.5

Another baseball card I got graded recently.  This time a rookie card of Alex Rodriguez with a 9.5 grade.  Almost GEM mint.  With the awesome grade I got on this card that puts the graded book value at about $100.  He will probably be the home run leader one day.  Of course, Albert Pujols will pass him up soon after.

Barry Bonds 1987 Fleer Hottest Stars #5 BGS 9.5

Got this baseball card graded recently by Beckett.  Couldn't believe it came back a 9.5.  That put its graded book value at about $150 so I'm really glad about that.  I hope this guy admits what he did someday.

Mike Cuellar, a crafty left-hander from Cuba whose darting screwball made him a World Series champion and Cy Young Award winner with the Baltimore Orioles, died Friday. He was 72.

Justin Verlander 2005 Bowman Sterling #JV BGS 9.5

Just got this great card back from Beckett grading services.  I really like Verlander.  Hopes he takes it to another level this year.  He should get plenty of run support again this year so I can see a 20 game season for him.
