It's been so long I didn't even bother to title the post.

I could being this post with a long preamble about how I haven't posted for the last week and I've been too busy, but we've been there done that.

I could admonish myself for being too busy, too tired or just plain apathetic, but we've been there, done that as well.

So, in order to get a post online, I found one page from the baseball serial numbered set that I scanned weeks ago, and had yet to post.  Page 30 it is!

Card 262:  Andy Laroche,  2007 Topps '52,  #'d 262/552.  Los Angeles Dodgers card #10
Card 263:  Alexei Ramirez, 2009 Topps Triple Threads #'d 263/1350.  Chicago White Sox card #6
Card 264:  Vladimir Guerrero, 2008 Topps Heritage Chrome #264/1959. Los Angeles Angels card #14

Card 265:  Bobby Cramer, 2011 Topps Heritage Chrome #265/1962.  Oakland card #14
Card 266:  Tony Wolters, 2011 Bowman Green #266/450.  Cleveland card #12
Card 267:  Lenny DiNardo, 2007 Topps gold #267/2007.  Oakland card #15

Card 268:  Edinson Volquez, 2007 Topps gold #268/2007.  Texas card #9
Card 269:  Asdrubal Cabrera, 2011 Topps Heritage Chrome #269/1962.  Cleveland card #13
Card 270:  Cole Hamels, 2011 Topps Gypsy Queen #270/999.  Philadelphia card #11 

Favorite card on the page:  Vlad Guerrero.  Love the orange background, that's something you really don't see often on cards.
I also like the Edinson Volquez card.  He's turned himself into a pretty decent journeyman pitcher; it'll be interesting to see how he fares with the Marlins this year.

Thanks to Max from Starting Nine, Johnny from Cards from the Quarry, and Dennis from Too Many Verlanders for helping contribute to this page.  A couple of cards also came from Roger from the long dormant Cool Breeze Baseball Buzz blog. 

That's how long this has been going on....

Thanks for reading, Robert


  1. I see a blog storm brewing for me in March. I'm hoping I can keep things rolling, but as of now it is not looking good. Too much work junk gets in my way that time of year.

  2. Even though there are two Athletics on this page... Vlad would be my favorite player on this page. However... my favorite card would be that Cole Hamels. There's just something about Gypsy Queen framed parallels. They're so awesome. Remind me of UD Masterpieces.
