If you’re a devout reader of the blogs, like many of us are, then you probably caught that this post title is a nod to our pal Bo Rosny’s blog, Baseball Cards Come To Life. Well, Bo hit me with a great package last year and I’m a terrible person who’s just now writing about it.
Bo sent over a nice chunk of cards last July, mainly hitting holes in the late 90s through 2010. This Mike Scott from 2001 Topps Archives was one of my favorites from the bunch, but there was plenty more to be excited about. Let’s have a look at some of the highlights I scanned, shall we?
It’s Lima Time Time! The Meluskey is a real nice card too – I rather like 2001 Ultra.
Added a couple more Wade Miller cards to binders, including these shiny offerings from Leaf Certified and Bowman Chrome.
More young studs from the mid-aughts. I think the Burke is a rookie.
Of course, someone has to man the keystone, and these guys were pretty good at it. That Fleer Rookies and Greats design is really nice – simple and elegant.
Some Bowman prospect cards from close to a decade ago now. Both of these guys had pretty good seasons last year, too.
Recent minor league cards! Well, recent as in the past decade, but these are always fun. Folty looks like he’s found a groove out in Atlanta. I’m happy for that dude.
Finally, let’s close out with this pair – of minis! The Garner is a mini sticker from the 05 Cracker Jack edition, while the Keuchel is from the Topps Mini set in 2013. More fine additions to the collection.
Thanks again for the cards, Bo! I’ve got a little something to send back your way before long.
