What could possibly cheer me up? Sharing some 2014 Triple Threads with you! Literally. If you see a card you're interested in - leave a comment. I'll be posting more of these for trade later on. This edition of Cracked Bat offers some base, cardboard #/325 and a handful of patch.
I grabbed a couple of nice lots off eBay. After seeing new pricing, I'm thrilled for being able to pick these up inexpensively. My collection grew a bit with Tigers and retired players from my list. I like the look of 2014 Threads. The patch cards have a smooth matte finish. Really sharp! 96 Fleer was one of my fave issues in the 90s. Matte's not for everyone.
Prince Fielder eats like a King! Good grief! His future cards will be postcard size issues if he doesn't lay off the chips n dip! I'm sure this photo is cropped from a close-up. I apologize.
Bo Jackson. I never understood his popularity. Was it all hype? I borrowed this chart from the resource of geniuses -Wikipedia:
due to football interests. No, let's not be forced to choose. Perhaps we can make some bling by
playing both games at a mediocre level. Funny thing tho - Reggie Jackson hit .262 and struck out a LOT over 21 years time and hit on average, the same number of HRs a year as Good Ol' Bo in his three best years. Reggie is a true HOFer! We can only wonder about Bo. He may be the only one who knows.

To be honest, I don't know too much about these four men. Ok, I know NOTHING about them. But what great-looking cards! I could look up their stats etc but at this point in my post, the lazy bug has kicked in. It's past dinner time. I should take an evening walk, a shower and a nap before bedtime.
Lest I forget: THE TONY, Greg, Adam, Jared, Robert and Nick - little packages for each of you hitting the mail tomorrow.
Thanks for reading! I'm outta here!
