Let's look at some stuff from a couple years back.
Deck McGuire's Bowman Platinum card is an X-fractor, which unfortunately didn't scan very well. Deck's time may be running out as far as being considered a prospect; he's now 25 and in his 4th season at the AA level. The Casey Janssen was on my want list, and I wondered why that was the case. It turns out that I never updated the 2012 sets when I typed out the Blue Jays want list a few weeks back. That error has been corrected.
Since there were a few humorous comments when I posted my Opening Day Dickey a few days back, here's another one for you. This Dickey is in gold!! The tattooed Brett Cecil is now a fixture in the Jays pen, and thriving there. After struggling for a few years as a starter, Brett pitched well enough in 2013 to earn a trip to the All Star game.
Not sure how much Topps Tribute from 2014 I've seen out on the blogs, but these aren't too bad. I did a quick ebay search for the Tribute release, and the cards look really nice. Take a look at this ebay auction of a Steve Carlton auto for an example. Martyn sent me a couple of more Dickeys (I guess a guy can't have enough of those!), including the blue parallel #'d out of 99. Great stuff!!
Martyn also sent me a quick fix for the SNI set, knocking a few more numbers off of the want list. I'm saving those for another post.
Martyn, thank you for the envelope, it's very much appreciated!!
thanks for reading, Robert
