An Orlando Sentinel reporter recently discovered some new 1988 Donruss baseball cards.
Chris Olds has found cards of Rick Vaughn, Willie Mays Hayes, Pedro Cerrano, Jake Taylor, Lou Brown, Roger Dorn, Harry Doyle, Ed Harris, and Jobu. Names sound familiar?
That’s right, they are the guys from the Major League movies.
Olds used the photo editing program at the Sentinel to make these customs cards to use in the paper and on their website.
Olds does want collectors to know that these cards are “100% fake baseball cards” but he does believe if a company were to get licensing to produce cards of these More >
Released on April 30, Topps Co-Signers baseball is now the talk of the baseball market.
Each pack contains five cards and one parallel or autograph card so collectors should have a decent chance of finding this Chamberlain/Hughes card or another card like it.
As two of the most promising pitchers in baseball, this card and all other combos of these two are just as hot as the newly released product.

Has anyone else had the feeling lately that something within Topps may be different than usual? They may be not doing the greatest lately or something along those lines? How do I figure this? Well I’m about to list a few good reasons.
First off, notice that they have been doing misprints in the last few years, maybe trying to get off more exposure than they already have been getting. You had the Derek Jeter misprint with Mickey Mantle and George W. Bush. Now, this year it’s the Red Sox team card with Rudy Giuliani misprint for this year. Coincidence or More >
With the passing of National Baseball Card, many collectors have a new set of cards, including Yankees prospect Ian Kennedy.
The Yanks are heavily relying on their young rotation to help them to their first World Series since 2003.
However, Kennedy’s first outing of 2008 didn’t look so stellar. He allowed six earned runs on four hits and four walks over 2 1/3 innings in a 13-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.
This is just one game though and collectors aren’t going to stop demanding his stuff just because he had one bad day.
Back in February, Topps Series 1 was causing quite a stir when Rudy Giuliani was found on a Red Sox card and a mystery Japanese high schooler was found on card FS1.
The Giuliani card was obviously a marketing ploy for the set, but the Uzuki card was initially thought of a mistake like the Alex Gordon card of 2006.
However, as time rolled along, some collectors began to realize that there was more to this phenom than originally thought.
The card said that Uzuki was invited to World Baseball Classic tryouts at 14, struck out 17 batters in a tryout game, but More >
