I recently won 5 individual baseball cards in 5 different eBay auctions from the same seller. The total damage was 9 cents shipped. There is really no common theme to these cards. The first card is an Upper Deck X base card of Randy Johnson. The next is an Upper Deck card of Alex Rodriguez showing off his quarter billion dollar Rangers jersey. Then, there is an Allen & Ginter of Dan Haren. I would rather have the base card. I don’t care what his middle name is. I can about wins and ERA and the like. Next is a Upper Deck Spectrum card of Scott Kazmir. Remember him? The former All-Star was last seen playing independent ball in Sugarland, Texas. Finally, there is Evan Longoria featured on a simple Upper Deck base card which is really a checklist. Not a bad haul for the money. This is better than some packs that run 5 bucks each.
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.
