The Binder Capers...

I went to my local shops around town, and scored some old Bo's, Frank's, and Jeter's recently. Digging through a bunch of boxes for base card and insert gold!!! I always love taking the time to blow through stacks of cards, especially random stacks of football too. Always finding oddball cards of my favorite players brings me much joy to this hobby I love as well.  I really hope to keep finding mint cards to replace the old ones I kept from my early days of collecting. So here are some recent pages of cards added....

Japanese Baseball cards!!!

So I really want to start a small collection of Japanese baseball cards. I see some online for sale, but I'm doing my research first. I think the main guy to get is named Sadaharu Oh. He is the Home Run King with 868 dingers and a lifetime batting average of .301 from a span of years from 1959-1980.  Menko and Bromides are the most popular types of cards produced it seems. Here are a few photos I found that looked awesome enough to me. See link below pics for info on Rob 's great website on Japanese past releases.

The Binder Capers...

So, yesterday I went to two of my shops in Cincinnati at Ideal Cards and Coins and Shoeless Joe's, and was able to pick up and add to my Bo Jackson and Don Mattingly collection.  I m really excited to own a numbered Gold Leaf Mattingly and Starburst Pinnacle cards I found. Along with broken bat cards of Bo and him standing next to a Jet as well. I never had these before. So here are the pics!!!......

Here is a 1939 Playball John Knott, and a 1964 Topps Stand up Jim Maloney I just picked up.  Cool cards to get the vintage juices flowing. Always good to have low key older cards to flip or sweeten a deal when needed.

I got my first fully intact 1934-36 Batter Up Card, Jim Bottomly or Bottomley. Red tinted card with a great action shot of him. Very cool in my opinion. A survivor card if you will, with rounded corners and all. I am now on the hunt for more, for cheap.
