I just finished up writing the 35th installment of Hall of Fame Binder series for this Wednesday. This project has been way more fun than any adult should probably have. First there was building a checklist of players, which involved a spreadsheet . . . and I love spreadsheets. Then there was hunt. Who doesn't love tracking down cards of Hall of fame players? I spent a couple of years building my binder before I finally decided to start crafting posts. The posts, themselves, have been fun to write and quite educational.
Then I started thinking . . . what is my favorite series to read? There are some very creative and talented bloggers out there. What series do you consistently look forward to reading?
I think one of my favorites is ARPSmith's "Just for the "F" of it" series. He doesn't add to the series all that often, but he's featured some interesting cards of Joey Chestnut, Lyle Alzado, Chris Mullin and most recently Rick Dempsey. I always like to see what other cool cards bloggers add to their collections even though they may not fit a specific collection.
ARPSmith, Adam showed off a Javy Baez on his blog awhile back and I reached out to check on it's availability.
Adam also included a three-fifths of the 1992 Topps Kids Cubs team set.
Warren G throwing out a first pitch is cool, but a sparkly Dexter Fowler from Topps Chrome takes the cake!
Here's a couple of early 90s Ryno cards to help bolster my Cubs boxes.
Here's my favorite card from the batch.
Cole Roederer was the Cubs' second round pick in 2018. He struggled a bit this past year in Low-A with South Bend, but I like his skill set and I look forward to seeing him take a step forward next year.
Thanks for the Baez and the extra Cubs, Adam!
