Magenta Madness! Another “Josh Anderson 1/1 Post”

Josh Anderson 2008 Topps Co-signers Magenta Printing PlateWell after a long wait I was able to reel in my third Josh Anderson 1/1. This one a 2008 Topps Co-Signers Magenta plate. So I’m wondering… Does this make me a supercollector yet? I also have a game-used and autographed Anderson bat, plus around 15 other different certified autographs of him and 9 different base cards I’ve gotten signed by him. Am I there yet? I’ve collected Eric Davis for years, but never considered myself on the supercollector level. (more…)

2010 Consolidated List of Non-roster Invitees

Below you’ll find a comprehensive list of the 2010 MLB Spring Training Non-roster invitees for all Major League teams, as of February 8, 2010. This information is easy to obtain, but not as easy to compile and format, into one master list so I ask that if you want to take the entire list for whatever purpose you at least cite your source. I’ll cite mine. MLB.com To make things more interesting I also add links to unofficial team blogs for each of the Major League baseball teams and on some players I added links to random blogs pertaining to the player.

Reds Land Chapman; Plenty of Work Remains For Both

Well the Reds have been eerily quiet this off-season. In January they signed one player and that was Laynce Nix who they’re bringing back. It’s not a move that excites me as a Red’s fan, but it doesn’t bother me either. So far in January they added Josh Anderson, which for me is a very exciting acquisition. Now it appears they’ve landed another free agent. The vaunted, Aroldis Chapman. Whether or not this is a good signing is going to be widely debated for awhile. Even if he starts off with a great couple of years, we have no idea how quickly he’ll deteriorate. Because we really don’t know how old he is. Is he 22? Or is he 26 like some reports have indicated?

Eric Lands a White Whale

I won my first “true” 1/1 on eBay yesterday. The card is a 2008 Topps Triple Threads Josh Anderson with an autograph, 2 games used jersey swatches and a patch piece. Serial numbered 1/1 of course. I just recently started my Josh Anderson PC and it has been growing pretty quickly. I haven’t found a lot of competition and was surprised that I was forced to pay $32 for this card. (more…)
