1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Jayson Werth

Since it is Father’s Day I thought that I would put out some of my Famous Lineage cards where the player is featured with his father. Part of the cool thing about this set is finding out some things that I did not know. Until I saw it on the Baseball Almanac I never knew that Jayson’s father played in the majors. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Brad Lidge

Brad has gone from being the Big East player of the year while at Notre Dame to getting the last out in the 2008 World Series as the Phillies closer. He is a veteran closer that now has over 200 saves. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Jimmy Rollins

Jimmy is a fun player to watch. He is very good at what he does for one. When he has a microphone on him for TV you realize that after he is done playing he could end up in a studio. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Ryan Howard

Ryan is one of the more feared hitters in baseball. He really can hit the ball a ton. He came to Philly and quickly made Jim Thome expendable. That is saying a lot. He is can hit the ball a ton.

A lot of people brought their gloves to catch one of his homers. I think the people on the street had a better chance though. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Ben Francisco

Ben makes the set based on a night that I spent watching him get heckled last July. The fans were really rough on him all game. He did get some payback as he hit a home run in the ninth inning, but it was too little too late as the Phillies lost 11-6. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Shane Victorino

Shane is a player that has an interesting story. He was selected in the Rule 5 draft twice. It took him a while to crack the bigs, but once he did he became a fan favorite. He got a little playing time when Aaron Rowand was injured, then more when Bobby Abreu was traded, and has been a fixture ever since. (more…)
