My first gold version. Can't tell you how happy I was to finally get this in the mail today. I've got a couple more coming too. I'm still on the lookout for all versions from this set so if you have any for trade please let me know. 2012 Topps Golden Moments Die Cuts Gold #GMDC21 Nolan Ryan /99.

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.

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.

Great looking card. I love the way the blue just pops. 2009 Bowman Chrome Blue Refractors #10 Ichiro Suzuki /150.

This dude has been fairly hot lately. I hope he continues on that trend. 2010 Bowman Sterling Refractors #50 Brett Wallace /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 sapproducer 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.

This guy has been picking up the pace lately. He's always been a pretty solid pitcher. 2001 Bowman Draft Autographs #BDPAJL John Lackey. It is for trade if anyone is interested.

Picked up a bunch of his cards at a card show a few months ago. He's in the bigs now and just jacked his first homer already. So far it's looking good for him but you just never know. 2011 Bowman Platinum Prospects X-Fractors #BPP34 Jurickson Profar.

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.

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.
