Andrew McCutchen card #122 2010 Topps Attax NNO


  • Found a whole bunch of these Topps Attax cards in one of my trade boxes.   These are kind of fun.
  • Been almost 11 years now since the code on the front expired.
  • Good to see Andrew healthy for most of the season (131 G played as of this writing).  Sad to see the average in the 220s.  Not the Andrew we all remember for sure...

Jim Thome card #296 1992 Score Impact Players #36


  • Noticeable on this card?  Jim much thinner as a 3rd baseman than when he moved over to 1st base.
  • Collection for Jim is up to 639 cards now.  Still about 200 behind my Sakic collection
  • Ranked 2nd on the TCDB website among Thome collectors.  I'm about 1500 behind the leader and likely never to catch them.   No worries

T.Y. Hilton card #1 2012 Leaf Draft # 46


  • First card of Hilton to be featured on the blog.  I've started collecting him since the last time I was writing regularly here at the beginning of 2019.
  • Just 79 cards added to this collection so far.  His cards don't come in as fast via trades as my other player collections do.
  • Full name is Eugene Marquis Hilton.  Will have to find out one day where the "T.Y." moniker came from.

Andrew McCutchen card #121 2009 Topps Ticket to Stardom #75


  • If I had waited 8 more days, we would have hit the 1000 day mark between posts.  Feels good to get started on this blog again
  • Card #120 for McCutchen on the blog, I have 294 listed on the TCDB website on this collection.  Lots of writing material
  • That is one baggy uniform; that and the photo make it somewhat difficult to tell that it's Cutch making solid connection with the ball.
