1985 Topps Jay Bruce

I haven’t tried my luck at 1985 Topps yet, so here goes. 1985 Topps wwas when I bought my first full box of Topps. Walking home from the old Lakeside Market with 36 packs of cards, I felt like a king.

Topps Gallery with Jay Bruce

I haven’t done a custom card in about 2 weeks. I saw this on another website and don’t know if these are packed within Topps cards or bought directly from Topps.

Any info for this type of card from Topps would be great. I have done google but didn’t find anything that would identify this style card.


We’ve gone CHROME CRAZY!

Nope, not a Harley, not an 18 wheeler rig or Chevrolet bumper, Topps Chrome crazy!

That’s right, I’ve been on a 2013 Topps Chrome Jay Bruce buying binge. So far here’s what I’ve gotten for far less coin than you might imagine.

I still have to get the blue, purple, pink and regular refractors. Shouldn’t be too much of a problem picking those up.


Things are looking Up…..ton along with Jay Bruce.

Found this on eBay for less than $11.00.

Jay Bruce & BJ Upton autographed card.


It’s a 2009 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection Baseball ‘Ultimate Dual Signatures’ card. Numbered 03 of 37 and it looks great! Cant believe how well this card looks and the price makes it even better! The blue sharpie signatures looks great and you can tell who the signer is, unlike some cards I have.


What Happened?

What team showed up last night in Pittsburgh? What team played over the weekend vs Pittsburgh? I don’t have an answer. The Reds played so well against the Cardinals and Dodgers. They lost the series in Milwaukee and lost the series at home vs the Cubs. Then loose all three games vs the Pirates at home? Games that meant something. Games that could’ve put more of a spotlight on GABP and the REDS.

Seems like in the last 8 games, this was all we got from Jay Bruce.
