Collecting Yastrzemski - June, 2013

Rate this Entry
Well, June sure had it's share of ups & downs to end Michael's college career. It started off really nice with him not only winning Vanderbilt's Student/Athlete of the Month award, but he was also named MVP of the Nashville Regionals! It continued to improve when he was selected by the Orioles in the 14th round of the 2013 MLB draft. As they say, "All good things must come to an end" though, & the Commodores were knocked out of the Super-Regionals by Louisville, which ended their record-setting season, preventing them from going to Omaha for a chance to win the CWS. Hopefully it will be a little easier for me to get items of his now that he is playing for the Aberdeen Ironbirds!

This month was actually the exact opposite from May when it came to acquiring new pieces fro my PC, as everything came from deals here on SCF & Father's Day gifts rather than eBay. It started off with a quick trade for a 2007 SP Legendary Cuts When It Was A Game Memorabilia card.



The second week rolled around & I made another trade on here for a 2012 Panini Prizm Refractor of Carl & ended with Father's Day gifts from my wife & kids. I must have been a great dad this past year as I was extremely happy to receive a 2013 Vanderbilt Baseball Fact Book that features Michael on the cover.



I had tried picking one of these up a few months back, but hesitated to hit the "Buy It Now" option & it ended up getting away from me for over 3 times the amount of the BIN price. I was so excited to see this, as I thought I wouldn't get another chance at one since they are printed in rather small quantities.

I was then knocked out to see my next gift for Father's Day, which they really went above & beyond....



A 1968 Topps Deckle Proof Blue Ink version. This was definitely the icing on the cake as these are rather hard to come by & it is in absolutely beautiful condition!

One week later I made my final deal here on SCF for a 1968 Topps AL RBI Leaders card with Yaz, Killebrew & Frank Robinson.

All in all it was a great month for the PC!
