A place where Colorado Rockies baseball card collectors (all 3 of us) can waste some time reading about our favorite sport. The Rockies and their cards will be the primary focus, but I like to go off on tangents as well so anything and everything baseball related may be covered here.

There you have it.  I did break the 200 point barrier and got quite a few Rockies.  Overall (perhaps not surprisingly) I am not impressed with this set.  I am not surprised primarily because I have not liked any of the A&G sets in general.  It is mostly the non-baseball players that turns me off, but the colored gas cloud behind the players has always been too odd for me.  Everything from these packs is for trade excluding the Tulo and AOM inserts (the only ones I like this go around).

I will have a state of the blog post probably tomorrow explaining my absence and other things.  I thank those of you that have inquired about my sudden disappearance.  I guess that means I have made an impression on some people.  Thank you.
