    fingers crossed this ST is business as usual & we see some Kershaws come back.

  7. #7
    I bought 80 stamps and a bunch of Heritage and Archives recently to gear up.

    Currently gunning for Beltre, Luebke, Holland, Hurdle, Showalter, Yost, Headley, Segura, Hill, Seager, Ian Kennedy, Dempster, Wacha, Masterson, Latos, Rosenthal, Dozier, Cingrano, Buxton, Mark Buehrle, and a bunch of Twins prospects.

    Riggs, I'm with you on Kershaw.

    I'm going to start sending ST to players during the first week of February, if not the last day of January. Some will report during the first week. Minor league guys will report around the 21st.
