Happy New Year. My first post of 2014 goes to ... Alex Presley. Who? Presley was acquired by the Twins in the Justin Morneau deal. This is my first card of Presley. I picked up this 2013 Topps base card for just a few cents on eBay. He may be competing for a starting outfielder job this season. So far, he has just been a spare part for the Pirates. He will have competition in spring training, but maybe this is his big break.
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.
