Bleeding Blue & White

I received an unexpected Christmas card in the mail today.  It took the long way here because it was sent to my old address by the curator of the Bleedin' Brown & Gold blog, Duff.

Duff knows my love of anything Blue Jay related, and this is a welcome addition to the collection.

Serial #'d 369/499

I hadn't heard of Juan Meza before, so the first thing I did was take a look at the back of his card.

Born: 2/4/98 in Venezuela.   Born in 1998!  He's not even old enough to vote yet, and here he is on a certified autograph baseball card.

It had been quite a while since I had updated the Blue Jays hits page, since last June as a matter of fact, so this was a welcome sight.

Thank you very much Duff, my Christmas gift is very much appreciated!

thanks for reading, Robert


  1. Yikes, he was born the same year as my daughter.

    That's it, I'm quitting collecting Bowman.

  2. Good looking card, the refractor goes with the Blue Jays colors. I recently picked up an auto of a 17 year old and realized how ridiculous that is when I looked at the back too.
