The Ryan Express... !

I mentioned in my pre show post that I was willing to make one large purchase.. and I did exactly that. I am super excited to get my hands on this card been searching for one that I could grab at a decent price for a while!

Check it out.. the strikeout king, Nolan Ryan!!!

This card is so close to perfect. Just the top left corner is messed up but besides that everything else is clean. It fits right into my Hall of Fame Rookie card semi collection! (I should probably get some sort of list together but that hasn't happened yet)

I have quite a few posts I need to write. Thanks for all the trades everyone, I'm really enjoying sending and getting cards in the mail! Let's keep it rolling.

Stay tuned for the next installment of my card show purchases.. the most ridiculous awesome patch I've ever seen... so I bought it!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Great looking card. I know Nolan is beloved but everyone always calls it the Nolan Ryan rookie card. What about the guy on the left. He played for 19 seasons, won 222 games and had over 2500 strikeouts of his own.

    1. Good point, Jerry Koosman was a good player in his own right.. Its not like he is Fritz Ackley.

    2. I just checked baseball reference, he finished his career on the Phillies, fits perfectly into my collection!

  2. The Nolan Ryan Rookie Card is my Holy Grail. I wanted it since I was a 6 year old kid. I spent some extra cash and got a PSA Certified one for passing the CPA exam. Nice addition to the collection.
