I picked up this 2007 Goudey Green Back Card of Dontrelle Willis on eBay for 6 cents shipped. Willis is one of those players that I have unintentionally collected over the past few years. I never set out to collect his cards. I sort of just wound up with a bunch of them over time. Willis had a pretty decent career until he forgot how to pitch. Willis is now with the independent Long Island Ducks. Their roster is like a garbage list of washed up big leaguers. I fear this may be the end of the end for this former 20 game winner.
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.
