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.

2014 Quarry Unlimited - #15 Toronto Blue Jays Part 1



Ending the first half of my countdown is the Toronto Blue Jays.  I can't believe we are halfway finished with this year's set.  It seems to be rolling by.  Anyway, the Blue Jays are the perfect team to be right in the middle because I couldn't possibly care less about them.  I don't dislike them, but I don't like them and probably never will.  To be honest if they moved tomorrow, unless they moved pretty close to me, it wouldn't affect me one bit.  They are just the picture of apathy.  The only way I could see liking the Blue Jays would be if both Orioles and Rays were bad and the Jays were in direct competition with the Yankees and/or Red Sox for the title.  And even then it wouldn't be so much me rooting for the Jays, but rooting against their opponents.  But it's okay for me to be apathetic toward the Jays, because I am sure many fans of other teams are completely apathetic toward my Colorado Rockies.  With 30 teams in the league, there are always going to be teams that you don't care about one way or the other.  For me it is currently the Jays.  I wish I had more to say about them, but the best I can come up with is this funny as hell video.

Who knows?  If they keep coming up with cool stuff like this, maybe I will start to like them one day.

I know this sounds obvious, but I really like how well the blue borders worked for the Jays. That Jeffress card is fantastic as well.

The Diaz card is my favorite here, and the double play card with Goins looks great, like the ball is ready to fly off the card. Ditto with Nick, the blue looks great with the Jays, especially with Dickey's long socks.
