Ogle That Vogel: Gold Ink Mojo

Because Daniel Vogelbach has been largely omitted from 2019 checklists I've been spending my free-time picking up his cards from earlier in his career with some moderate success. I believe there are some sellers out there who had ideas of cashing in on Vogelbach's hot start and All-Star nod, but they have probably been disappointed by the market.

I've filled some gaps in my player collection of The Vogelmonster at very reasonable prices and I couldn't be happier.

Here's my latest find from Ebay. 
Hey, look at that!  "Go Cubs"

Even without the logos this is one of my favorite pictures of The Vogelmonster. Shades, dog tags, stubble under the chin... Vogelbach is one bad dude!

 Here's the back and you can see it's numbered to 5.
There's a little extra gold ink to the right of the picture on the back, but I'm cool with it. Heck, maybe the other four have small imperfections, too?

Regardless, that is one awesome card to add to my collection!


  1. Great card. He looks straight out of the sandlot.

  2. Onyx can put out a nice looking card.

  3. Wow. Very cool addition to your Vogelbach collection. eBay 1 of 1 :)

  4. Thta's a pretty one! Onyx is a weird brand, but good for some of these early rookie oddballs.

  5. After the insanely tough year that was 2017 I was hoping that there'd be a cooling off period for you/your Vogelmonster collection. I'm glad to see that that's the case. Congrats on the great get.
