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.
The Big Sexy, Bartolo Colon, signed this card for me via the mail.
You know, the Yankees might be responsible that this guy is still out there entertaining baseball fans around the world. His career looked pretty done after 2009 and not being in baseball in 2010. The Yankees gave him a shot in 2011, and while it was his only season with the team, he showed he still had something left in the tank. Seven years later, he's still out there doing what he does. Pretty cool.
Glad to have his autograph, especially on a Yankees card. Thanks, you sexy beast.
