New Page

I’ve added a new section to the site.  It’s the new page Random Cards.  I will update this semi-regularly with two new cards.  These will be random cards that I have scanned to my computer.  All of my cards are always up for trade so this is a good way to show you the goods.  Some may not be good at all, remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  Also some low valued cards carry a high personal trade value to me, and some high valued cards carry a low trade value too.  So don’t be scared to make an offer.  Here are the first two….

Contest, Polls, And Prizes

It seems like every blog I visit is having a contest, taking a poll, or giving away prizes. So I decided to do all three.  I was thinking of what the worst card in my collection is and I came to the conclusion that I own way more than one.  I want some sort of definitive answer to this question.  What I’ve done is went through some of my boxes and picked a few cards that are less than desirable.  They are all bad for their own reasons but I want to put them head to head and see which one really is the worst.  I’m going to post the first six in two groups of three.  Those winners, if you will, will go head to head.  That card will be crowned Worst Card In My Collection.  I will dedicate a page to the title holder, there his card will be showcased and random facts about this person will remain until six more will go toe to toe and a new challenger is born.  You will decide the winners, and by “you” I mean all four of you.  That estimate may even be too high!  After the showdown I will post a question.  The first to answer this question correctly will receive the 5 runner ups and my 4 yr old daughter’s interpretation of the Worst Card In My Collection.  That’s right, 5 horrible cards and an original piece of art.

Here are the first three…..

This is a nominee simply because this guy looks goofy as hell.  It’s also the stereotypical ’80’s card.  Let’s see,    rockin’ mustache……Check,     beer league softball uniforms…….Check,     funny glasses……..Check,    and last but not least,  worth less than a penny………Absolutely.  I think we found Screech’s Dad!!

OK, I understand it is Mr. Hill’s Rookie Card but before you make the bigs you should know how to bunt right?  And why is he shown bunting, this is the guy who hit a ball out of Wrigley and onto the rooftop across the street.

Taylor looks like he enjoys being assaulted by the team mascot.  He just shrugs his shoulders and takes it like a man.  You go Taylor!!

There are the first three.  I’ll post the next three tomorrow.

As for the question, All you have to do is tell me what these current and former major league players have in common.
