I bought 2 2008 Upper Deck cards on eBay of two of the worst pitchers in New York: Daisuke Matsuzaka and Phil Hughes. Both pitchers have gone from the penthouse to the outhouse. The Red Sox paid over $100 million for Dice-K. He spent most of the year in the minors for the Indians and Mets. Hughes has been terrible this year. He has been relegated to the bullpen. I doubt that the Yankees will re-sign him this winter. So I figured that both cards couldn’t be worth less than they are right now.
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.
