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.
I'd like to think I'm a pretty realistic Yankees fan. I know it'll take a minor
miracle for the Yanks to make the playoffs this year. The season started with an
aging roster to begin with, and the injuries haven't helped. The pitching staff
has been ok, and is really the only reason the Yanks are currently above .500.
They don't have a ton of talent, and this is likely the start of a few down
an effort to land a bat with a little pop, the Yankees reacquired OFer Alfonso
Soriano. I know this isn't the same Soriano that was traded for A-Rod in 2004,
but it'll be nice to see him back in pinstripes. He did hit over 30 HRs last
year, and has 17 so far this year, so he will certainly help the anemic
ironic that he's rejoining the Yanks, and A-Rod may never suit up for them
