I purchased this 2011 Topps Update card of Corey Patterson for 6 cents on eBay. Patterson used to be the next big thing for the Chicago Cubs. I actually own a rookie card graded by BGS. Fortunately, I bought it after everyone realized that Patterson was not the next big thing. After leaving the Cubs, Patterson became a journeyman for several teams. He is still bouncing between AAA and the Majors. Although he is in a Cardinals uniform on this card, he only played 44 games for the team. Did I overpay or underpay?
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.
