My latest eBay purchase as a 2012 Gypsy Queen
card of John Axford.I paid 6 cents
shipped for the card.This is my first
card of Axford and my first Gypsy Queen card.I like the overall card design and the fact that the card lacks a glossy
finish.Gypsy Queen seems to have plenty
of parallels which is a plus.However,
I’m not sure that I would shell out the $100-$110 that hobby boxes go for on
eBay.The cards are nice but they are
not that nice.I would prefer to just
buy and trade individual cards.Axford
has a bloated ERA so far, but he has saved 6 games.In fact, he just blew his first save in 50
tries.I have a warm spot in my heart
for closers.I have won at least one
fantasy league because of my closers.
I have been a New York Yankees fan for my entire life. I have collected baseball cards for over 20 years. I did take a brief hiatus from 1996 to 2004. Nine years is brief, right? I prefer cards made after 2004. I also prefer cards that measure 2.5 in. by 3.5 in. I also have a thing against baseball cards that don't feature a baseball player. I collect all teams and players, even the Red Sox.
