I bought a 2013 Allen & Ginter insert card of Ian Kinsler on eBay recently. It’s kind of a pointless insert set, but whatever. A lifelong Ranger, Kinsler was traded to Detroit for Prince Fielder. I have to think Texas got the better part of that deal in terms of talent and production. But second basemen are hard to come by and Prince Fielder will have to be paid a zillion dollars over the next few years.
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.
