A Giant Housecleaning

Chris from  was doing a housecleaning of  his cards. I claimed the Giants cards that he had. He sent these to me a few months ago but I was having scanner problems and didn't get these posted. Thanks a lot for the cards Chris!

  • This is  my favorite card from this shipment. I grew up watching "Tomorrow's Major Leaguers Today" at Phoenix Municipal Stadium. I have a lot of good memories from going to Phoenix Giants games with my father, with my little league teams, and with my friends.

  • Here is a 2009 Topps Christy Mathewson card. Those are some great stat lines on the back of the card!

  •  Lots of 2010 Topps Heritage Giants cards

  •  Some other goodies

  • The whole stack of cards.
  • Looks like the lens needs to be cleaned on my cell phone :).
  • Thanks again Chris!

1977 Topps Stickers

  • I haven't posted on this blog in a few months. I'll be posting a few trades and pickups in the next few days. Sorry it took a while to get to the posts!
  • I was going through the commons bin at  my favorite baseball card score (Batter's Box in Phoenix, AZ) and managed to find both of the Giants that were included in the 1977 Topps Stickers set.
  • The Montefusco is supposed to be a short print, but I got it for 50 cents.
  • It looks like the "N" on Ferguson's jersey is backwards. Is it really backwards or is it just the way the jersey is folding in this picture?
  • By the way, the Montefusco sticker was on my "Top 9" list on the right side. One card knocked off the list! :)
