I purchased this 2012 Topps card of Chris Davis recently. It cost a dime on eBay. Davis was just named as a starter in the All-Star game. I was shocked that Davis was named a starter. But I was even more shocked to see that Davis is batting .324 at present. Davis is well known for his home runs. However, I expected to a batting average closer to .250. In past years, Davis has batted in the .260-.270 range. This year his stats have really gone crazy. It appears that Davis is indeed worthy of his All-Star start.
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.
