My Cole Hamels Collection

Cole Hamels is my favorite non-Dodger pitcher and second favorite non-Dodger overall, behind only David Wright. If you've got any relics or autographs (or Hamels' true RC) that you're willing to trade, hit me up. I'm down to deal and will find something to make it worth your while. I'm especially interested in an auto of the southpaw, as one has eluded me for quite some time. The fact that Hamels is a Southern California native is an added and awesome bonus.

The centerpiece of this collection, a sweet Yellow Printing Plate I acquired in a trade for some vintage Red Sox way back when. I was and am stoked to have this card in my collection.

The best relic I have, an eight-way swatch numbered out of 200 that most prominently also features Brian McCann, Jose Reyes, and Hanley Ramirez. I chose not to scan the other four guys because they're middling players. This was another trade acquisition.

Next up, three more pinstripe jersey swatches. I'm a sucker for a pinstripe.

And finally, two more jersey pieces of the Phillies lefty.

I'm mulling over including a tab at the top of the blog for my Hamels and David Wright PCs, though that's a future possibility, and nothing that I foresee occurring anytime soon.
