    Hey J.R.,
    Thank you for the comment! I know that I didn't add much in October, & November isn't looking much better actually as far as quantity. Any time that I can add a Venezuelan issue to my PC is always a plus for me. They are so hard to find anyway, & even harder to stay within my budget. I think next month is going to feature more memorabilia than cards!

    Take care,
    Kelly

    Boston drafted him and he opted for Vanderbilt. Fair enough. A lot of players will go through the draft at least twice, from what I've seen. I was at the game on Saturday, and I could've sworn he'd had 5 plate appearances.

I'd say the odds are pretty good that if the Orioles hang onto him, he'll be up in Baltimore in a year or two, unless ownership gets stupid (Hey, it's Baltimore!), and trades him to Boston, which would go ca-razee with a legacy player they should've drafted in the first place!

    My bro's been to Fenway (twice) and Qualcomm, but won't do a minor league game with me. Philistine!
    Yeah, playoff games this year haven't gone his way. Vandy got knocked out before making it to Omaha after putting up the best record in school history. Now, Aberdeen falls after winning their first division title in team history. The HBP actually put Mike at 0-3 for the night, & he did get a SB as well.

    As far as him playing for Boston, I believe he'd be under way too much pressure there. They actually drafted him back in 2009 straight out of High School.

    Hope you make it to Fenway one day. I lived in Boston for two years and walked to Fenway. I was fortunate to be able to buy a game 1 04 World Series ticket and sat in the left field grandstand. And after Steve Tyler sang the national anthem, guess who walked out of the left field wall - Yaz. It was a magical moment one never forgets!!!

    It's gotten easier since the internet, that's for sure! I couldn't imagine the difficulty trying to get things being in the UK. Especially now that postage has gone through the roof. And sadly, no, I have never been to Fenway.

    I would've loved to have grown up around Boston, it would've made finding stuff of his a lot easier than being in the Midwest my entire life! Thank you so much for your comment! I was beginning to wonder if anyone was going to post anything at all after it hit 800+ views!

    Nice card to have Rob! I've had the 1960 Topps #148 in my PC since 1976. It was the card that started my PC. I actually submitted mine for grading at the end of 2011. It only got a 6.5 from BVG, but I didn't care. I did it more for the protection value of Beckett's cases than anything. I was so nervous about submitting it, it was kinda like the feeling I got when any of my kids leave home! Good luck with it, if you end up sending it in to get graded!

    I have a 1960 Yaz, and it is in pretty good condition, am considering getting is graded and puting up for auction considering someone paid 83k for one last year. Am interested to find out just what kind of grade mine will get. I traded a Ricky Henderson rookie for it straight up in 1990. Kind of been holding on to it as a special have. Wish I could tell ya am interested in selling but............Rob

    Thank you for the response jrlebert! I was beginning to wonder if anyone was reading these at all or if I was just boring people to death!
