I bought 5 2012 Topps cards of Aubrey Huff on eBay. Why did I do this? I can’t say. Maybe it’s because the purchase only set me back a grand total of 11 cents shipped. Maybe it’s because Huff recently retired to become an announcer. Maybe it’s both. Actually, Huff didn’t play last year, so he really was retired after 2012. Aubrey just didn’t realize it. I wonder if Bernie Williams has retired yet.
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.
