Early this morning I took the time to clean up my card desk. I had one trade that I cannot remember when it came in, but know it was from a Trading Card Database member.
The big prize in the trade for me was the final 2 cards I needed to complete the 1994 Topps Archives set. Virdon is better know as a Pirate, but he did win Rookie of the Year in 1955 as a Cardinal. Deal was a relief pitcher in 1950 and 1954.
I was surprised to see I still need a 1997 Topps base card, but this Benes finished my set. The Wagner finished my 1994 Stadium Club Draft Picks set, while the Sanders took my 2004 Bazooka set down to 2 cards.
These 3 inserts are from 2014 Topps Allen & Ginter. You would think Topps could be a little more creative with the name. Reminds me of Topps Total Total Topps inserts.
I miss the Sportscenter days of Keith Olberman and Dan Patrick. The show is almost hard to watch. I tune in for sports highlights and some related stories, not to see anchors fighting with guests or expressing their political views. If I wanted to see that I would watch Jerry Springer.
