 Even though Bo Jackson is my favorite Bo, I did have a card of Bo Belinsky first.   Since by initials

are also BO, as a kid some of my friends called me "B" "O" but they soon shorted it to Bo.  I grew out 

of Bo but when Bo Jackson was hot in the 80 and 90's he was my favorite player.  It's amazing how 

much he has retained his star status and it seems to be growing.  When I started collecting Bubbles, Bo 

also has over a dozen different Bubble cards.

Bo's rookie

Mark do you have this one?

Bo has a large amount of unlicensed cards

stadium club 2022

 I finally got my hobby boxes of 2022 Stadium Club and will show a couple of my favorite photos.

Sets of stadium club from the 2000's are the only sets I'm working to finish.  The collation from my two 

boxes of 2022 were very good.  I'm short 42 from making a set.   The auto's were also pretty good.

This card will probably pay for both boxes with a little left over.  9/10

Smallest printing i've seen on a card.  Since I live 45 miles from Detroit, this card
will also sell well.

This was also a great auto, but since it's full of bubble gum, I'll keep this one

I can add this one to my american flag collection

Here's a recycled Ted photo

This is the first time i've seen this Babe photo.

Baseball Movies

 While watching the Sandlot for probably the 100th time, I decided to see if was ranked on a list of best 

baseball movies.  I've used Baseball Almanac as my main reference for the rest of this post.

The first Baseball Movie was titled "the Ball Game" and came out in 1898 and was made by

Thomas Edison.  There are over 300 titles on their list which includes Naked Gun, City Slickers,

Space Jam and Ferris Bueller.  Everyone has their favorite baseball movie.  On Baseball Almanac,

my favorite The Sandlot, is ranked #9.

2018 Topps Archives

I'm trying to build this set and still need these 4 cards.  Wendy, Smalls, 
Kenny Denunez and Tommy Timmons
I have an extra Hercules to trade and would consider trading some good cards
for any one of my 4 missing cards.

This card not only started my love of Bubble cards but also cements my love 
of the "sandlot".

Babe Ruth has had his share of baseball movies

Jackie's first movie debuted in 1952.

Kelly could ride a mean motorcycle, 1976.

My favorite baseball bit.

If you build it, he will come.

Just a bit outside.

My favorite card from this movie, My granddaughter is named Millie.

There are many movies for MLB teams

Some movies I had never heard of

I have no cards for the movie "The Rookie" but here are one of my many
Jim Morris rookie cards.

I also could not find any cards from the movie "Trouble with the Curve"
My daughter was living in Decatur, Ga. and they shot some scenes from
this movie on her street.  She said they blocked here street for a few days
when filming.  She reported no sightings of Clint Eastwood.

What is your favorite Baseball Movie?
