My First Post

Welcome to my blog. I have been collecting cards since 1978. My passion for collecting was rekindled in 2008. Inspired by Wax Heaven, Cardboard Junkie, Sports Cards Uncensored, and others, this is my contribution to the blogosphere. I hope it doesn't suck.

1982 Fleer and 1982 Donruss...Shooty Babitt. Of all the cards to blog about for my first post, I have settled on these two. For some reason, probably the cool name, I have had these two cards in a binder with my star cards. Playing in only 54 major league games, there is no reason for me to hold these cards in high esteem. But, what a cool name! So cool in fact, that Fleer spelled his last name with one "B" and Donruss with 2 "B's". Fleer got the spelling right. The colors of the cards are perfect too. Yellow and green name plates with the A's yellow and green uniforms works perfectly.


  1. Good luck with the blog. I like the page layout. I know you'll end up with great insights into one of your passions.

  2. Welcome! I have an '82 Topps Shooty Babbitt, if you are in need.
