2002 Sweet Spot USA Jerseys Roy Oswalt

You all know I love me some Oswalt.  Picked this up for $3 shipped off of eBay.  A third year card and a piece of jersey from when he played on the Olympic team.  I think they won gold that year but I may be wrong and I probably am.  2002 Sweet Spot USA Jerseys Roy Oswalt.  And no this is not for trade.

Annual study released: Less than 10 percent of players black in MLB. Who cares?

Do we really need to hear this bullshit?  Who cares!  If you can play you get hired.  Wanna diversify?  Hire some women to play.  What about Asians?  Why are we still talking about this???  Just seems dumb to bring up anymore.  Are my eyes closed?  Someone please explain it to me.

2007 Bowman Chrome Prospects #BC190 Gorkys Hernandez

Got this a year or two ago when I thought he was giving a serious push for the bigs.  Haven't really heard anything about him this year yet.  Maybe in the future he'll pan out.  2007 Bowman Chrome Prospects #BC190 Gorkys Hernandez.

1996 Bowman's Best Previews Atomic Refractors #BBP16 Jeff Bagwell

Just in.  1996 Bowman's Best Previews Atomic Refractors #BBP16 Jeff Bagwell.  Thought is was the regular version, not the preview version.  Oh well, that was my fault, seller listed it correctly.  Still a great looking card though.  I say it almost everyday.....I love the 90's inserts cards.

Derrek Lee on Orioles?

I must be way out of it.  I had no idea Derrek Lee was on the Baltimore Orioles.  Just too many players switching teams these days.

BGS Graded Mailday - Pujols Howard Halladay Longoria

Sent these 4 in a group submission on  If you haven't gotten in on this deal and you are into grading you need to try this.  Great price and a fast turnaround.  I'll never submit directly to Beckett again.  I'm really proud of this set.  Nothing under a 9 is great as far as I'm concerned.  Pujols is for trade for the right card.

2010 Stephen Strasburg rookie cards

The hobby can hate him all they want but he was great before he got hurt.  I am so glad I didn't invest in him though when his cards were skyrocketing.  I'm fine buying them on the keep these days.  Remember when his items on eBay would never not sell.  Happens all the time now.  I was the only bidder for the 2 cards.  Got them for $3 each shipped.  Not too shabby.  2010 Topps 206 #55 Stephen Strasburg & 2010 Topps Chrome Target Exclusive Refractors #BC1 Stephen Strasburg.

2003 Bowman Uncirculated Silver #63 Roy Oswalt

With Beckett being so out of wack, I am just now getting stuff entered and posted.  Still not buying Beckett online price guide until everything is fixed.  How dare they give us a unfinished product and then raise the price.  What a crock!   Anyway, here is a card I got off eBay from a while back.  2003 Bowman Uncirculated Silver #63 Roy Oswalt.  Numbered to 250.  Picked this one up for $3 shipped.  I like these uncirculated cards.  Trying to pickup a few of him like this from different years but I'm holding off on buying stuff right now, just mostly trading.
