I picked up 2 2008 Bowman Chrome Rookie Cards on eBay for 12 cents shipped. The first card is David Purcey of the Blue Jays. Actually, Purcey’s true rookie cards were made in 2004 and include several autographs. The second card is Greg Smith of the Oakland Athletics. Smith had a few cards in 2007 though. Figuring out what was a rookie card was a heck of a lot easier before these logos came about. Can anyone dispute that 1989 was Ken Griffey’s rookie year? I don’t even need a logo to tell me that.
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.
