Ready, Set, Bo!

Bo (Baseball Cards Come To Life) recently had a tradeathon/Little Fun Game and I ended up with a big batch of cards graciously sent my way from his abode in the Big Apple.

Vlad! One more lot like this and I'll reach the 100-card mark with this future HOFer, whom, I should mention, was a beast in his prime.

Carlos Delgado! The greatest player to ever fall off the HOF ballot on his first try. I'm probably close to 100 cards of him, too.

Brian Giles! I'm pretty sure I've already passed 100 different cards of his, but still happy to add more of the all-time greatest baseball player from my high school. I really need to sort my B. Giles PC one of these days. But who has the time for that?

And Bo didn't forget Brian's lil bro Marcus, either.

Ron Gant! A fav of mine from back in the day. Gotta love those 30/30 guys. Forgot he was ever an Angel.

Another power/speed guy from the 90s, Reggie Sanders is represented on a nice mix of cards here.

Great lot of Adam Jones.


I've been pranked! Too Many Gavins!

Fan favorites Rod Beck, Pat Neshek, and Eric Owens.

Just one each of these guys, but good stuff. Vide Blue from the blurry '82 Fleer set. Great Dave Henderson card. Early Francisco Lindor card. A Brent Gretzky for my Black Sheep minicollection. And a Molitor. Very cool.

And the prize I came away with in Bo's contest game was a 100-card set of 2007 UD Future Stars. Lots of big names in here. I'll probably break up this set for my PCs.

Big thanks, Bo! I'll try to round up a respectable return for you soon!


  1. I really need to take the time and write off your player lists for when I am going through cards. Just today I found a bunch of Vladimir Guerrero and Marwuis Grissom cards, and I was wondering if any of my trade partners would want them. If you are interested, I will get them out and put them aside for you.

  2. WOW! Bo hit your collections biggly! I'd forgotten Reggie was a D'Back, seems an odd uniform on him.

  3. I'm with you...I have no recollection of Gant playing with the Angels.

  4. Glad you like them! No rush on the return.
