Bloger decided since I edited a post from 5 months ago that I went back in time. -_- Anyways.... Today my Senior League\ Middle School Baseball Team has a game. Now living in the middle of nowhere in New Mexico means you have to leave town to find teams. Well, I'm going 45 minutes away to play a double header game in Texas. In the middle of spring.... When it's like a billion degrees outside. I play first base, pitcher, and outfield. I'm left handed so they took me out of shortstop, 2nd base, 3rd base, and catcher. I like playing catcher.... I enjoy getting the ball every single pitch. But because I'm left handed I can't really throw to third. So I don't get to play catcher.

Anyways I like said I am a fun of the Yankees. I have been corrupted I know. I went with my mom when she had a dentist appointment one day and afterwards we went to K-Mart. Th redneck version of Wal-Mart.... I'm just kidding but still.... That place kinda scares me. Anyways every time I see a K-Mart I get a book. Back in Feburary I got the book Act of Valor by Tom Clancy, George Galdorsi and Dick Couch. It's a book based off the movie. I'm not here to review the book because that's for a day when I can't think of anything to post.

Looking in the bargain books bin I found two books that caught my eye, Mike and Mike's Rules for Sports and Life by the Mike's of ESPN and Andrew Chaikivsky and Steinbrenner- The Last Lion of Baseball by Bill Madden. It has some language in it which caused me to quit reading for about 2 minutes. I haven't finished so I can't review it yet.

Also at K-Mart I picked up a blaster of Topps Flagship for 22 bucks. Slightly overpriced but oh well. One card fixed that. Sadly being 13 I don't have a scanner so you'll have to trust me on this.

First off:

1987 Topps Minis:

David Wright-Mets
Eric Hosmer-Royals
Roy Halladay-Phillies
Michael Young-Rangers

Everybody's already seen the Golden Inserts for the hundreth billionth time so that's not getting on here.

My "hit" was a Nolan Ryan Historical Stitches Card. Books for 20 bucks. Made my money back right there.

I don't really feel like selling it for a bit so it'll stay unless I get some trade offers.

Also any and all want lists and trade bait pages will (hopefully) be up by next Saturday.

Friend of the Evil Empire, Youngest Person to have a baseball card blog (I think).
