I collected baseball cards from the late '80s through 2002. Then I went to college and when I came out, I was lost. There were too many brands, sets, choices, relics, autos, parallels, variations. It was a turn off. However, I slowly made my way back.
So here is my attempt to venture back into the hobby. I'll buy a few packs of cards here and there, comment on some cards I have, send out some TTMs, and follow the progress of my Topps Yankees Project.
Before 2013 closes, here is the last Michael Pineda card I acquired. It's a
2012 Topps Golden Moments autograph. The auto is a sticker which sucks, but it
only put me back $3.
It would be a damn good golden moment if Big Mike actually pitches for the
Yankees this season. I have a feeling we'll see him on the bump in 2014, and I
hope he regains some of that 2011 All-Star form. Even 150 league-average
innings would be something to build on. He’s still just 24, after all.
