Yankee Stadium Legacy HELP!

I'm looking for Babe Ruth card #6 from the Yankee Stadium Legacy set. That card has eluded me and it currently goes for way too much money on eBay. I'm trying to stay strong and not try to buy it.

I'd rather trade for the card. Especially if someone really doesn't want the card.

Contact me and we'll work something out.

Thanks blogosphere!

Mark Buehrle just pitched a perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Centerfielder Dewayne Wise, who replaced Quentin in the outfield, made a spectacular catch that will probably be the defensive play of the year.

Through the marvel of modern technology that is the MLB.TV package, I was able to watch the 9th inning and enjoy a few minutes of perfection.

Happily, Mark is on my fantasy team and helped me out in what looks to be another week where I get pummeled by my head-to-head competitor.

A big congrats to Mark on his perfect game.

FYI My primary computer is dead so I don't have my scanner which is usually the tool I use to blog. I had a whole lot of cool things I got from fellow card shop visitors that I wanted to show off. When I fix it I should be back up to blogging on a fairly infrequent basis yet again.

Evan Longoria gets DIRRRTY

I pulled this relic card from a box of A&G this past weekend.

That dirt was on the card when I pulled it. I remarked to Kim (who was helping break our two boxes) that it had dirt on it but it doesn't look quite like dirt to me if you catch my drift. But I'll take it.

I also pulled the Unstoppable Upton brothers:

Two batty Camerons, no relation:
And all well that ends...Wells:

6 relics in two boxes. We got a bunch of minis but nothing overly exciting. The hoodwinks are good fun. And Kim went squee when she pulled the Milky Way. And we're both big fans of the Pi hoax.

I've seen a lot of heat on 2009 A&G. This is Kim's second year collecting these cards and my first. This is a set Kim and I can do together because it appeals to us both. It has baseball players, parallel inserts, autos, relics. For Kim it has art, history, science and cultural appeal. It's fun discovering this set with Kim. And when the blasters hit Target and Walmart, we'll get those too and build our set.

We'll be working together to complete the set as well as most of the blogosphere. Just some good old fashioned set building fun.

2009 UD Icons is live

And I really couldn't care less....

Nick the Stick Relic

Nick the Stick Auto

I think this is one of those products whose price will drop dramatically when little interest is shown in the product itself. Don't know if there are any Phil Hughes, Phil Coke or Nick Swisher cards in there but those are all I would interested in.

Good luck to anyone who breaks that stuff.

Well that didn't take long....

2009 Allen and Ginter cards are out on eBay...we all know that.

Apparently there's a Phil Hughes auto in the set. And three of them have shown up on eBay

I have two boxes coming. But my odds of pulling the Hughes auto are next to zero because I'm a Yankee fan and we aren't supposed to get our own kind from packs. So I think I'll try to pick this one up off eBay.

Oh, if someone comes across a OPC Nick Swisher black mini card let me know. I'm looking for one.

The Greatest Don Mattingly Card EVER?

This card could possibly be the greatest Don Mattingly card to ever exist...

Don Mattingly 1/1

When I win the lottery, I'm buying that card.
