Finleys For A Friend

I think I've made it abundantly clear that Marcus, the man behind all the way to the backstop... is one of my very favorite card bloggers. I almost said favorite but that wouldn't have been fair to Kevin of Orioles Card "O" The Day or Nick from Dime Boxes. Let's just call it a three-way tie for first since that's the trifecta of card blogs I absolutely check every day. Props-giving aside, the reason I mention that is because I usually try to keep an eye out for cards of players who people I know are collectors of and Marcus is a Finley guy. I got the three pictured at top with him in mind. If he doesn't have them, awesome. If he does, well, that's awesome too because then I'll have some sweet Steve Finley cards I didn't have before. It's about as win-win as any scenario could be. The '92 OPC is pretty much the same story. I just bid on it on Listia as part of a five card lot; none of the other cards are of any interest. I thought there was a chance he might not have it since O-Pee-Chee cards are a good bit more scarce than their Topps brethren down here south of the Great White North.  So, Marcus, just let me know which ones of these, if any, you don't have and I'll get 'em Texas-bound.

  1. Just when I think that I'm amassing a pretty good collection of Astro/Padre Finley's, here's four that I don't have! I'll take all of 'em off your hands!

    Thanks for the post as well. Feels good that somebody's checking out the blog regularly. I have a package all ready to go for you as well (along with a few other bloggers). I've been carrying them around in my school backpack, waiting for a day when I get off work early enough to make it to the post office before 4:30.

    Man, I wish more of Finley's cards were of him making catches at the wall. Speaking of which, did you see Maybin rob Kemp last night? I love it when the Pads beat LA.

    Props on the Cora keychain. Thought it was a card at first, then did a double take.

    I just moved, so I'll email you my new address. Thanks again compadre.
