Serial Saturday #15: Slacker

I haven't posted since Monday, largely because I've been so tired every evening that I didn't have the energy to sit and think about a worthy post.  Even having a 1/2 day vacation on Thursday and a full day on Friday didn't help, as I found enough things around the house to take care of that by the time the evenings rolled around I just didn't feel like getting behind the computer to write a post.

Also, it's been almost a month since I've posted any pages from the SNI baseball set.  So I guess you could say that I've been slacking in more than one area.  These SNI posts don't take a lot of thought, so it's probably time that I spent an hour or two and put a few of these in the drafts folder. 

OK, enough of that, let's get pages 42 & 43 out there for everyone to see...

Card 370:  Ronald Guzman, 2013 Bowman blue parallel #370/500.  Texas card #14
Card 371:  Trevor Hoffman, 2010 Topps copper parallel #371/399.  Milwaukee card #8
Card 372:  Victor Martinez, 2009 Topps Unique #372/1199.  Boston card #11

Card 373:  Derrick Penilla, 2013 Bowman blue parallel #373/500.  Minnesota card #12
Card 374:  John Buck, 2012 Topps gold parallel #374/2012.  Miami card #14
Card 375:  Troy Glaus, 2006 Topps update gold parallel #375/2006.  Toronto card #19

Card 376:  B.J. Upton, 2008 Topps Heritage chrome #376/1960.  Tampa Bay card #15
Card 377:  Andrew McCutchen, 2009 Bowman blue parallel #377/500.  Pittsburgh card #5
Card 378:  Julian Javier, 2002 Topps super teams #378/1967.  St. Louis card #18

Victor Martinez has been with the Tigers for so long that I've forgotten him as a member of the Red Sox.  I'd also forgotten that the Pirates wore a sleeveless jersey for a time about a decade ago.  Would love to see more catchers use and paint the hockey style masks as John Buck did a few years back.

Card 379:  Magglio Ordonez, 2010 Topps gold parallel #379/2010.  Detroit card #6
Card 380:  Adam Laroche, 2007 Topps gold parallel #380/2007.  Pittsburgh card #6
Card 381:  Tony Sanchez, 2010 Bowman chrome #381/999.  Pittsburgh card #7

Card 382:  Yovani Gallardo, 2012 Topps Heritage #382/1963.  Milwaukee card #9
Card 383:  Matt Cain, 2012 Topps gold parallel #383/2012.  San Francisco card #8
Card 384:  Johnny Giavotella, 2013 Topps gold parallel #384/2013.  Kansas City card #14

Card 385:  Johnny Stolz, 2013 Bowman blue #385/500.  Colorado card #13
Card 386:  Mike Wright, 2012 Bowman blue #386/500.  Washington card #17
Card 387:  Cody Eppley, 2011 Bowman blue #387/500.  Texas card #15

3 straight cards were all Bowman blue parallels, each going back one year (13, 12, 11).  After having just 4 cards in the first 41 pages, Pittsburgh has 3 cards in the past 2.  I remember when Tony Sanchez was the next big thing at the catching position for the Pirates.  He got stuck behind ex-Yankee catchers (Martin, Cervelli) and is now in the Anaheim system. 

7 out of the 18 cards on these 2 pages were bought by myself, many of the others were from bloggers who are no longer blogging.  Yep, it's been a while since this started.

Thanks for reading, Robert
