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.
This image got released today. It's Masahiro Tanaka's Series 2 RC. It looks hilarious, honestly. The interlocking NY looks like it was just stamped on. It looks nothing like a part of the actual jersey.
There is a patch on Tanaka's left sleeve that is from Mariano Rivera Day at the Stadium last year.
