I found a few good deals in a dollar bin at the White Plains Card Show. First, I picked up a 2008 UDx Autograph of Marlon Byrd. It’s a sticker autograph and certainly not a star player. But I couldn’t pass this up for a buck. Second, I bought a 2012 Topps Jersey Card of Sergio Santos. The neat thing about this card is the jersey swatch. It is blue with a white pinstripe. I believe this is from a throwback uniform. The funny thing is I lost an auction for this very card about a month ago. Finally, I purchased a 2012 Gypsy Queen Jersey Card of Nelson Cruz. This is my first Gypsy Queen Relic Card. I now have regret about some of the cards I did not pick up out of this box, including a few Jesus Montero cards. Oh well.
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.
