My latest Listia purchase was a 2009 Upper Deck Starquest card of Kevin Youkilis. I couldn’t resist buying this Red Sox card at only 8 credits. It was a bit easier to make this purchase knowing that Youkilis is no longer on the Red Sox. In fact, he is a free agent this offseason. Last year, he managed only a .235 average with the Red Sox and White Sox. That’s a disappointing performance in a free agency year.
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.
