In honor of the balloting about to take place for the Baseball Hall of Fame (the same place we are supposed to go on an adventure soon), I thought I might showcase a card or two from the candidates. I would probably be willing to trade this card, but it would have to be for something pretty sweet, and very Pujols. (I would settle for Cano.)
The first card is a 2005 Fleer Classic Clippings Don Mattingly Game Used Jersey Card
The funny thing about the older game used jersey cards is they were a heck of a lot thinner back then, they are only slightly bigger than a regular card.
Donnie Baseball was a long time Yankee favorite, team captain, and a gritty first basemen. Most people my age idolized him (even Mark Teixeira), and if you ask most of those people who their favorite Yankee all time is, some will still say Donnie. For whatever reason, I don't share in this affection for him. I liked him, don't get me wrong, but he just wasn't my guy. I hope he gets in the HOF so Yankee fans can stop debating why he isn't in, and why he does or doesn't deserve to be. Not just that, but I like to see Yankees get in especially one that I grew up watching.
