So, on Saturday, I visited a sports card shop to purchase some cards of a former MLB player that I intend to send off to him for him to sign. I selected two cards, some sleeves, a hard card protector and a 4-up page for some strange sized police cards. Then I noticed the sign that the shop did not take debit cards for purchases less than $10. I had about $6 worth of stuff. Not enough. So I strolled over to their cabinet of $5 Autographed (Auto) and Game Used (GU) cards. Some nice Allen and Ginter Auto cards. Modern players. They were nice, but nothing really caught my eye. Then I found a 2005 Upper Deck Legendary Lineage of Jim Palmer (LL-JP). How often can one get a part of a uniform of a Hall of Famer? Well, for me, not that often. So I bought it.
And sorry I didn't crop the photo. Maybe later. Maybe not.
I've stumbled on a few ball card blogs that I'm very taken with. Here are some of them:
and a nice collection of baseball card blogs: Baseball Card Blogs
Go and enjoy them.
