Daniel Hudson Collection - 2013 Topps Cyan Printing Plate Signed

You may remember this card from a post back in February 2013. It looks a little different now.

I was able to get tickets for the Daniel Hudson autograph table at the Diamondbacks Fan Fest earlier this year. I brought along a few nice cards with me including my 2013 Topps Cyan Printing Plate.

After a short wait in line, Daniel signed it nicely in blue.

Daniel Hudson Collection - 2008 Razor Letterman Plate

One of the benefits of not blogging for well over a year is I've got a few nice cards to show off. Now I didn't buy a ton of stuff during my absence but the few things I grabbed are pretty cool.

First up is this 2008 Razor Letterman Yellow Printing Plate for our Daniel Hudson collection. I got it earlier this year for a great price.

Luis Aparicio Collection - 2014 Panini National Treasures Game Used Bat Relic

Whoa. It's been a long time since I sat down to write a blog post. Don't worry I'm not dead or anything, I just haven't been buying many cards lately. I kind of found a new obsession to suck up my discretionary income. There have been a few cards that I've added to my collection but not many.

Last week, Daniel from one of my all-time favorite blogs, It's Like Having My Own Card Shop, contacted me about a few cards he found that he thought I might like. He was right.

Daniel sent over some nice Travis Lee cards, a 1972 Luis Aparicio In Action and an amazing relic card from the 2014 Panini National Treasures set. It's awesome and it's numbered to 99 on the front.

A funny thing happened after Daniel emailed me. I went on eBay and started looking at cards. I even bought a few things. More blog posts? Maybe. I'm not good at commitments. Remember this? My last triumphant return fizzled out after only three posts.

I'm not sure if anyone is going to reading this, but if you did leave a comment and say hello.

Thank you for the great cards, Daniel.

# 201 - Matt Capps

Former Pittsburgh Pirates closer, Matt Capps signed a card for our set. Matt was selected to play in the 2010 All-Star game while he was a member of the Washington Nationals. Matt's last big league appearance came in 2012 with the Twins.

I remember Matt best for being one of those cheap closers you could pick up in the late rounds for your fantasy baseball team.

# 468 - Gregor Blanco

Hey it's Gregor Blanco! You may remember him from the 2014 NL Champion San Francisco Giants. Gregor has been a staple in the Giants outfield for the past three seasons.

I picked up his signed 2008 Topps card from a friend on last year.

# 247 - Edgar Gonzalez

Edgar was with the Diamondbacks for parts of six seasons. This was during a time when I wasn't really following the team closely. He started 35 games and had an ERA just under 6.

I was surprised to see that Edgar is still playing. In 2013 he made 8 appearances while splitting time with the Astros and Blue Jays.

I bought this card from a friend on well over a year ago.

Return of Uncle Moe

Wow a lot has happened since my last blog post.

I went to 15 Diamondbacks games this year. The D-Backs lost in 13 of them.

Daniel Hudson came back from his second Tommy John surgery and looked pretty good out of the bullpen.

The Diamondbacks fired Kirk Gibson and hired Chip Hale.

The Royals made the World Series.

Over the past few months I haven't bought many baseball cards. Maybe a blaster of Topps Heritage and a few random singles off eBay but that's it. I think I just got burnt out.

Recently I started reading everyone's blogs again and I figured it was time for me to return. 

The posts might be sporadic but I'm back.
