Because I can't stand to be left on the sidelines, I picked up some Lineage last night at the local Wal-Mart while buying coloring supplies for my daughter. Or is it that I picked up coloring supplies for my daughter while at the local Wal-Mart buying baseball cards? I can never remember.
I have mixed feelings about these cards.
I love the mini-75s and managed to snag a whopping one in two rack packs.
For now, I'm thinking I'll just pick up some Reds and Tigers, other players I collect, various cards of the legends and then call it a day. Hope to eventually land Andre Dawson, Joey Votto, Frank Thomas - probably some other PCs I'm missing.
As for last night's purchases, no Tigers in the two rack packs but a few Reds!
Here are some of my favorites:
A Shiny Guy That I Collect
Cal Ripken Jr. (The trophy does it for me.)
Walter Johnson (Big Train! Still love that nick.)
Jackie Robinson (always nice, although I'm about to send him away in a deal for the beloved Al Kaline)
Mickey Mantle (yeah, overkill, but I truly love this card!)
