It's been a while since I posted....what can I say, 2020 is all sorts of insanity. But there has finally been some semblance of normalcy with the greatest sports news I could possibly think of:


I will enjoy this moment for the rest of my life. It only took 31 years for me to experience this wonderful and amazing occurrence -- I was born in 1989, 10 months after they won in '88....and I'll let you do the math and figure out the importance of that 10 months -- and it was worth the wait! The feeling of seeing that final strike and knowing my absolute favorite team, my truest sports love, had accomplished the ultimate goal....well, it was exhilarating and emotional all at once.

But this blog despite my long absences is a card/collectibles blog for the last decade, so what would today's celebratory post be without a card of the 2020 World Series and NLCS MVP, Mr. Corey Drew Seager.

I have been after this 2016 Topps Transcendent auto for a long, long time. They were well out of my range 4 years ago but time and a few unfortunate injuries Seager had to deal with brought prices down to Earth. A wonderful birthday gift from my wonderful girlfriend covered over half the cost and I can finally enjoy this bad boy in-person.

This copy has been slabbed a BGS 9.5 with a 10 auto and is numbered 46/52. The case has some issues -- scratches and a small crack -- but the card is magnificent. An on-card auto, a simple portrait in the circle, and the gold border really shines and pops up close and personal.


  1. hey greg. nice seager and great news indeed! this is the third championship i've been around for, and have great memories of all three, thankfully. i have also mentally prepared myself for this to be the last one i get to see. i hope to be around for another 32 years, but that might be iffy.

  2. Awesome card... and congratulations. The A's have won 4 titles during my lifetime, but I only remember the Bay Bridge Series. I hope I get to see them win a World Series again in my lifetime.

  3. Am here to testify what this great spell caster done for me. i never believe in spell casting, until when i was was tempted to try it. i and my wife have been having a lot of problem living together, she will always not make me happy because she have fallen in love with another man outside our relationship, i tried my best to make sure that my wife leave this woman but the more i talk to her the more she makes me fell sad, so my marriage is now leading to divorce because she no longer gives me attention. so with all this pain and agony, i decided to contact this spell caster to see if things can work out between me and my wife again. this spell caster who was a man told me that my wife is really under a great spell that she have been charm by some magic, so he told me that he was going to make all things normal back. he did the spell on my wife and after 5 days my wife changed completely she even apologize with the way she treated me that she was not her self, i really thank this man his name is Dr ose he have bring back my wife back to me i want you all to contact him who are having any problem related to marriage issue and relationship problem he will solve it for you. his email is oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com  he is a man and his  great. wish you good time.
