Fuji, Fuji, Fuji Do You Love Me?

Guess you could say that title is a bit forward.  Perhaps to say 'he likes me, he really likes me' is more appropriate.  Fuji is one of the good guys.  He's just a downright decent fella.  There are several of you out there and I'm most fortunate to be in your hobby circle - but this post is about Fuji.

Back in November, he sent a package that Jeter'd, Cobbed and Berra'd me in cards.  He threw in some Posey, Piazza and Gehrig, and a little Munson.


Great additions to the PCs!  My collection continues to be more catcher focused.  We'll forgive Jeter for not wearing the tools of ignorance.


I thought Yogi would live forever.  His Aflac appearances showed him sharp and full of vigor.  He is one of my all-time favorite baseball personalities.  I miss Yogi.  The 72 style mini is sweet!


Lou - one of heaven's great ballplayers - and another Yank!  



Tiger materials!!  So many little jersey swatches.    Maybe when I am old, I can stitch my swatch collection into a quilt.  Hmmm, better get started now. 


The great and oft misunderstood Ty Cobb.  He's one of my absolute favorites to collect.  I love this postal stamp!  


Munson, yet another Yankee great!  I don't like the Yankees.  Looking through my collection,  you'd never know this.

Fuji is a man of many talents.  Teacher, blogger, collector, trader - his blog is worth your time.  He contributes more than sports knowledge.  With each post, Fuji leaves you with a bit of himself.  I like you Fuji.  I really like you.

  1. Fuji, Nick & Julie are my goto cardboard blogs. That '71 Munson is an icon.

    1. A great Oscar moment! I was in the early single digits in her Flying Nun days and also remember the Girl with Something Extra during its short run. She's one of my favorite actresses.
