Ichiro and Pujols!

Ichiro officially retired this year. No doubt he will be elected into the Hall of Fame in five years. Pujols is still trucking along (I would be too for the money he's making) but clearly is not nearly as dominant as he was with the Cardinals. They will both be no doubter Hall of Famers.

I've been trying to grab some rookies of them since most aren't outlandishly priced and it fits into one of my side PCs. The same seller had both of these at the card show.

The back of this card also has Hideo Nomo which is pretty cool too. Graded GEM or whatever. I didn't buy them for the grades but I do like the protection of the cards.

This card is pretty sweet. Two future Hall of Famers on one card. I do like a good vintage rookie with 2 guys on it and besides the Trammell and Molitor on one card you'd be hard pressed to find 2 better players on a rookie card (maybe Nolan Ryan/Jerry Koosman?)

Thanks for responding on the puzzle debate. Most of the puzzles aren't worth framing. We did glue together a Disney one that's 2000 pieces but to get a custom frame is going to cost too much at this time. Just started playing a new (to us) game called Sequence. It's fun lots of strategy involved. I always enjoy those types of games.

Fantasy Football playoffs start this week for most leagues. Good luck to you if you're in it. I made playoffs in 2 out of 5 leagues. I was hoping for 3 but the game didn't break right last week oh well. Hoping to win at least 1 Championship that would be a successful season!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Congrats on the Ichiro and Pujols! Last year at my LCS I won a 50% off any card coupon. My first thought was to find a Pujols or Ichro RC, but then I came across the Griffey Jr RC from 89 Upper Deck and decided to get it for $20. Maybe one day...

  2. Ichiro will definitely be a Hall of Famer, but the Mariners are saying he'll play in their Japan series to open the 2019 season. He might have to wait another year.
