All the news that's fit to print(ing plate)

pfew, I'm finally all moved in. We ended up moving under rain and snow, but all in all, it went well, and, most important of all, no cards were lost in the process ! I'll now try and be more consistent in my blogging and organize the trade packages I receive a little better.

That said, Brian sent me a bunch of very cool 90s cards a few months back that I meant to show, but they kinda got lost in a 300 card box, and I just can't seem to remember which was which. I'm awfully sorry (especially considering how much I love showing off 90s cards and trades in general), but I'll only be showing one card that particularly stood out. Brian actually pulled it from a pack (oldschool style !), and that makes it even more special !


Tadah ! Brett Cecil yellow printing plate. Can't get much better. I used to pest against one of ones 20 years ago, but now that they're affordable and that there are plenty out there, I find them incredibly cool. I'm just very glad I'm not a super collector, those must drive them crazy. But printing plates make for great trade bait and are always fun to pull from packs.

I'll  now prepare mentally for the new season ahead by watching utterly meaningless spring training baseball (well, unless you're curious to see Tebow play, that is).

  1. Awesome! Glad to hear you are able to tune in to Spring Training. Are you watching the World Baseball Classic at all?

    1. not really, as it's not available on my MLBTV ap. To watch it, I need to be in front of my computer, on the internet and the mlb.com website, and it's really not convenient. But I'll probably watch the last rounds !
