Links Exchange

It has been a long time since I have had a link exchange but now I have two good ones. The first is Babe Ruth Cards, the writer is Andrew, he e-mailed and said that "Since I can't afford many of his old cards I thought I'd at least try to build a site that profiles them. " I can relate to Andrew and his affordability.

The second link exchange is baseballcardref its writer is Cliff. Cliff has been one of my biggest supporters/ commenter's since I have begun posting. Cliff states,"My collecting goal is to own as many different cards as I can find. Base cards, inserts, subsets, auto cards, relic cards and odd-ball cards. I love them all. I have an extensive database of cards with scans and as much set information as I can find. So this blog will present my baseball card collection from 1980 to present." thanks Andrew and Cliff!

1990 topps

I haven't had much of a chance to do much blogging! I haven't had much time, with poltics, work and my sixteen year old daughter wrecking my car. I thought I would use my namesake Bart Giamatti as much as I like Pete Rose, I thought Bart was a great commissioner. The reason I always liked him is that he was tough and he thought more of the fans then he thought of the players and the owners.
Born in Boston, MA on April 4, 1938, Giamatti attended Yale University where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree, magna cum laude, in English in 1960. Giamatti went on to receive a Ph.D. from Yale in Comparative Literature in 1964
The Back of the card say's
"It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer ,filling the afternoons and evenings and leaves you to face the fall alone. You count on it, rely on it, buffer the pasesage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high shies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most it goes...... And summer {is}gone"
A. Bartlett Giamatti

Steve Carlton

Cliff at said he was interested in post career Steve Carlton cards (as a Phillie). Cliff, I found this Playoff Portraits 2003 #119 of Steve Carlton.
Back of Card says:"Lefty" paved his path to the Hall of Fame by staying in top condition and staying on top of hitters with laser-guided control of his lethel slider. The four-time Cy Young winner collected 329 wins, 4,136 Ks and two Worlds Series rings in a career that spanned three decades.
Cliff, I am also still looking for other cards too.
