Card Shop Purchase

Last Saturday I went to the card shop and picked up a few Brandon Webb cards for my collection, plus a couple other D-Backs cards. The cards were in a box marked 2 for $1.00, so for the 6 cards I spent $3.00.

My son's first autograph!

Yesterday I took my oldest son (he's almost 4) to an event sponsered by Camelback Ranck (Spring Training home of the Dodgers and White Sox) and Sports 620 KTAR (local Sports Talk radio station). They had a pitching station for the kids and you could sign up to win Spring Training tickets and have your child throw out the first pitch at a Spring Training game. Former Oakland Athletic and Los Angeles Dodger Mike Davis was there. I took a few cards and we got them signed. I handed my son the 1988 Fleer card to give to Mike and he sneezed on it. Oh well. I saw Mike's World Series Ring (1988) and asked him about it, he took it off and handed it to me to look at. Mike was really nice and my son had a great time. Thanks Mike!

Cards from a fellow D-Backs fan. Thanks Moe!

It's been a while since my last post. Things have been busy, but I'm excited to get back to the blog. Moe of the blog My 2008 Topps Set Blog was kind enough to send me some cards I needed for my 2010 Card Collecting Goals. He sent me some D-Backs that I needed, 2 Brandon Webb cards I didn't have and a card for my Multiple Bat collection. Here are some of my favorites. Thanks Moe!
