I purchased a 2011 Topps Update card of Henry Blanco on eBay for 6 cents shipped. I wasn’t really looking to buy a card of a career backup catcher. I bought this card for the photography. The Topps base set isn’t usually known for great photos. Blanco is about to make a play at the plate and photo was taken almost directly overhead. Safe or out? Also, can anyone make out the Cincinnati runner? Also, shameless plug for Play at the Plate.
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.
