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.
TTM Success: Eric Jagielo (Yankees '13 First Rounder)
The Yankees selected 3B Eric Jagielo (Notre Dame) with the 26th overall pick in this month's draft. Jagielo is a polished 3B who will hopefully move through the Yanks system quickly. He's playing just down the road in Staten Island, so I figured I'd shoot him a TTM request. He doesn't have any cards yet, so I send this Yankee Stadium card. I don't like those "Signature" cards, so felt like this was a pretty good alternative.
