Link Exchange with The Golden Age of Baseball Cards

Wow!! I haven't did a link exchange in a long time. But today we have one with The Golden Age of Baseball Cards
This is a great site I like the The Greatest Baseball Card Ever part of this site. The manger of this site says: "How can anyone classify a baseball card as the greatest ever? I don’t know, but I’d like to try. Who is the greatest player? Babe Ruth? Mickey Mantle? Ted Williams? Hank Aaron? Barry Bonds? Many others come to mind. However, in trying to determine the “Greatest Baseball Card Ever”, we will examine more than the particular player’s ability, the scarcity of the card or its worth today. Certain criteria will constrain the choices to a reasonable number of cards. The cards eligible for this honor will be limited to those that were most popular with boys growing up, when cards were purchased throughout the summer as each series became available, before factory sets could be obtained, and when collecting cards was something that kids did for fun, not for investment purposes. Other considerations are listed in theGreatest Baseball Card Ever section of this website."
Right now the 1956 Mickey Mantle is listed on his sight. It is also one of my favorite cards eventhough I do not own one. The Mantle card definitely is one to see. click on the above link and view it for yourself!

Times are Hard

Times are hard as everybody already knows. Thankfully my wife and I still have our jobs. It is always good to let people know that you are a baseball card collector. You never know what may happen. This is my blog for tonight. A friend of mine came upon a whole binder of baseball, football, & basketball cards. Well, he just gave it to me because he new I loved the cards!
Below are some of the cards that were added to my collection from this find and my friend.
I am really happy with this Ken Griffey All- Star card that I didn't have. I remember in 1990 this card was really a "hot" item.

This 1991 Nolan Ryan Golden Arm card was my next great find in the album. I had several of these Pacific Trading Cards of Nolan Ryan but this is baby picture card is a happy edition to my collection!

This Willie Mays Baseball Heroes is another card I didn't have, I am really happy with this card. I always liked to say "Hey Kid!"

This Ken Griffey Sportflics yet, another great find for me. I have only purchased 2 packs of Sportflics in my whole life. However, I have traded for quite a few and this card really helps my Sportflics collection.

Last but not least this 1993 Topps Gold Card of Dave Winfield is my favorite of the five cards posted from my lucky friend find.
