A little of this, a little of that.

Hey, I hope that everyone out there in the sports card blog universe is doing well. Not much going on over in my part of the world, just been busy with everyday life, but enjoying it all.
As of late, I have not been motivated to mess with my cards, football season is upon us and I am ready for it to kick in full tilt. I did pick up some packs over the weekend, a mix mash of this and that, I won't post all the cards I got, just the one's that I consider a little bit more special than the others. It always feels great to bust open some packs, new or old. From left to right are,

2008 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes 127 Joe DiMaggio

Well there you have it, not great, but not bad I guess. I plan on picking up some packs this weekend, hopefully I'll find something good.....take care.

80's Astros

Hey, I hope that everyone is well out there in the baseball blogging universe. Yesterday I received a package from blog reader Tim in Ohio. He sent me some Bagwell's, Biggio's, Ryno and Pudge cards to add to my collection of those players, but I wanted to focus on the cards I have pictured here.
They are all of Houston Astros, my late father's favorite team. I am putting together a binder of cards of the players on the 1976-1987 time frame Astros. These are the players that I remember on those teams and that I remember watching on TV with my father.
A lot of these guys are not big name players, a few are, but for the most part they are just forgotten names, but to me they are reminders of those times when my father was still alive and cheering on his Astros. In a way this is just a small tribute to him and to those players that made up the team that he so loved very much.
Pictured here are Jose Cruz, Enos Cabell, Joe Niekro, Terry Puhl, Bob Knepper, Alan Ashby, Ray Knight, Mike Scott and Dickie Thon.
