Serial Insanity cards 891-895

Full speed ahead with the insanity.   5 more cards brings the total to 895, with plenty more on the horizon to show.

1100 by the end of the year may be a possibility...

Card # 891:  Scott Diamond

Serial Number:  737
Team:  Minnesota Twins, card # 25 out of 50.

The Twins become the 25th team out of 30 to reach the halfway point.  By the way, is there a better name for a baseball player than "Diamond"?   Other than Rusty Kuntz of course...

Card # 892:  Brett Wallace

Serial Number:  468
Team:  Houston Astros, card # 20 out of 50

Mr. Wallace's card confirms that the Baltimore Orioles are the last team that will reach the 20 card mark.  This former 1st rounder is already on his 4th team, and at the age of 26 that means trouble.  The Astros, in a complete rebuild, felt the need to sign Carlos Pena to play first base.  Speaks volumes....

Card # 893:  Josh Hamilton

Serial Number:  225
Team:  Texas Rangers, card # 35 out of 50

I will never get tired of the GQ framed cards when it comes to the SNI project.  They look great (to me) and there still seems to be an abundance of them out there to be had for cheap. 

Card # 894:  Johnny Giavotella

Serial Number:  384
Team:  Kansas City Royals, card # 28 out of 50

Johnny might be part of the lightest hitting trio of 2nd basemen a team has ever had.  Starter Chris Getz (.211), Elliot Johnson (.201) and Giavotella (.206) are all flirting with the dreaded Mendoza line.  Thankfully, the defense is good, the 3 of them have combined for 4 errors.

Card # 895:  Eric Thames:

Serial Number:  274
Team:  Toronto Blue Jays, card # 41 out of 50.

The Jays are now tied with LA Angels, both teams having 41 cards towards the 50 card limit.  In case you were wondering, the Jays traded him to Seattle, and all they acquired was this years AL write in all-star, Steve Delabar.  Well done, AA. 

Next up, SNI reaches 60%...

Thanks for reading, Robert
