Card-ography #9 – Jason Hammel

Welcome to Part 9. For a series that should be pretty easy to put together, it sure does take a while for me to get them out the digital door. I’m lucky enough to have autographs for several of the 2016 Cubs players at this point, so I have to show them off. Today’s example […]

Card-ography #8 – Carl Edwards Jr.

Today’s subject has had some ups and downs with the Cubs. There are a lot of stretches where he is dominant and then some longer than expected stretches where he can’t get a dang out. No matter what, it is safe to say that he’s cemented his role in the major leagues as a reliever […]

Card-ography #7 – Jorge Soler

Welcome to Part 7. I’m doing a terrible job of showing off all of my autograph cards with any sort of regularity. People like the flashy stuff, right? Well, it’s not going to get much flashier than the example we have today. Jorge Soler has been suffering injuries since his transition into the Royals staff, […]

If I Were To Collect: San Diego Padres Edition

[The twenty-ninth in a series: I’m picking one player that I associate with a team (whether they spent the majority of their career there or not) that I would strongly consider adding to my official want lists. They may not always be superstars, or the most popular, and honestly they may not always be my […]

Card-ography #6 – Mike Montgomery

It’s been a little more than a month since I’ve added to this series, and I have quite a few autographs from my player collections to show off. I don’t have an autograph of everyone (looking at you Bryant and Rizzo, among others), and I think a couple of the relievers have no certified autos […]

If I Were To Collect: Oakland Athletics Edition

[The twenty-eighth in a series: I’m picking one player that I associate with a team (whether they spent the majority of their career there or not) that I would strongly consider adding to my official want lists. They may not always be superstars, or the most popular, and honestly they may not always be my […]

Card-ography #5 – Tony Gwynn

Welcome to Part 5. I missed the recent Blog Bat Around focusing on autographs and building a team with the signatures in their collection. I honestly don’t have enough autographs to make that workable anyway (unless I were to draw from pack pulled stuff I have sitting around that I haven’t sold or traded yet). […]

If I Were To Collect: Minnesota Twins Edition

[The twenty-seventh in a series: I’m picking one player that I associate with a team (whether they spent the majority of their career there or not) that I would strongly consider adding to my official want lists. They may not always be superstars, or the most popular, and honestly they may not always be my […]

Card-ography #4 – Carlos Marmol

How about this blast from the past? Part 3 of this feature came 4 years after the first two. Now, #4 comes back into the fold over two years after that. Crazy how time flies when you have insufficient time to blog. I have quite a few autographs in my collection now, so I hope […]

If I Were To Collect: Kansas City Royals Edition

[The twenty-sixth in a series: I’m picking one player that I associate with a team (whether they spent the majority of their career there or not) that I would strongly consider adding to my official want lists. They may not always be superstars, or the most popular, and honestly they may not always be my […]
