Mr. Scott collects Yankees cards (he’s working on his Phil Hughes wantlist), but as the virtual neighborhood of collectors knows, you never hold a person’s collection against them. So Mr. Scott has my condolences, but I am more than happy to swap some collectables with him.
clockwise, from top left: 2002 Upper Deck Victory #197 Denny Hocking, throwback uni from the looks of it; 2008 Topps Stadium Club Beam Team Autograph #BTA-MTO Matt Tolbert; 2006 Bowman Draft Picks Gold #BDP19 Jason Kubel; 2008 Upper Deck Documentary #1663 (MIN53) Joe Nathan – if someone tosses a complete game (Kevin Slowey, in this case), you KNOW Joe Nathan wasn’t in the game
Although a goodly percentage of the cards were duplicate base set cardboard (which was part of Mr. Scott’s master plan to clear out space for the 2010’s coming in), a nice chunk of my wantlist items were hit, including a nice Stadium Club Beam Team Tolbert auto and…2008 Upper Deck Documentary! Sixteen new home games (of which the Twins had a 10-6 record on them) all with photos and headlines as screwed up as the rest.
clockwise, from top left: 1996 Sportflix #12 Marty Cordova; 2003 Topps Gallery #107 A.J. Pierzynski; 2009 Topps Unique #98 Denard Span – DSPAN2!; 2006 Topps 52 #83 Willie Eyre – Groundskeeper Willie!
Now’s your chance — Mr. Scott is still looking to clear out space, so drop him a line. Meanwhile, I have a bunch of unusual Yankees collectibles to get to the post office. Not a cr@pload, but I know there’s some stuff he doesn’t have.
