not just baseball “cards”

Sometimes there are players that you don’t have a card of. For example, until recently it was very hard to find a card of Uggla of the Marlins and Mike Napoli of the Angels still has almost no cards. And then there are times when a former player that you weren’t expecting to see is at the game. Yes, most of the time they are announcers or work in the front office for the team but during spring training you never know who’s going to show up. That is why index cards are very important to have a few of. Years ago I got an Alfonso Soriano autograph on one, long before he was ever known and he was still with the Yankees. There are also sometimes cards for baseball players that are not baseball cards. We all know that Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders were two-sport athletes but there are some lesser-known ones. For example, I got a basketball card of the now Dodger and former Devil Ray pitcher Mark Hedrickson. If you get a non-baseball card signed it increases the story behind it.
I’m out of town until Sunday so good luck to all who read this.
