For some reason, I decided that it would be a good idea to bust open a pack of Panini Americana. This isn’t really a sports set. But it was a nice change of pace. There were only 5 cards. In the grand scheme of things, I didn’t do too bad. I think the Jackie O card is the best card of the pack. I got two Presidents in Fillmore and Wilson. The two athletes in the pack were softball player Lisa Fernandez and gymnast Carly Patterson. I was pleasantly surprised with this pack. However, my one complaint is that the photos are in black and white. It can makes the photos kinds of boring.
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.
