I recently purchased a 2008 Bowman Gold card of Hunter Pence on eBay for 10 cents. The card was listed as a regular Bowman card rather than as a Gold card. That might explain the price. Pence has become a bit of a journeyman over the past couple of years. He signed a new deal with the Giants, so maybe he has found a new home.
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.
