Newest Addition to the Griffey Collection

I always appreciate quality photography, like on my newest Griffey card - a 1997 Topps Photo Gallery insert:

A perfect shot capturing the classic Griffey home run follow through!  The camera frame corners in gold foil are a nice touch as well.

A Return With Rockin' Robin

2013 was an....interesting...year.  I had several unexpected events come up, some of which pretty much eliminated my card budget, and so I dropped off the blogging map.  The good news is I made it through all the stress of last year, and I'm hoping to pick up where I left off here at the blog (at least on a limited basis).

To that end, I made my first eBay purchase in quite a while and added this cool Robin Yount card to my Brewers collection:

I've really grown to like these patch cards, even if they are "manufactured relics" - I just think a lot of them look cool!  Too bad there isn't a Paul Molitor card to go with it...

I also lucked out on price - I saw most of these listed for $12-$15, but I managed to snag mine for just $7 including shipping.
