I picked up a lot of 5 2012 Topps Update cards of Matt Cain on eBay. Somehow, I only paid 16 cents shipped for the entire lot. This is a checklist card that features Cain’s perfect game. I typically don’t like checklist cards. Checklists have a segregated binder away from my “real” cards. However, these cards are only half-checklists, so they will earn a spot in my Giants binder.
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.
