Collecting Cleveland Indians Since 1982

Collecting Cleveland Indians Topps team sets from 1952-present, as well as post-war minor and major league autographs.

New Arrival: Carlos Pena, if, Oakland Athletics

Carlos Pena is well known to anyone who saw Moneyball¬†as the player that the A’s coach kept playing instead of Scott Hatteberg, despite the objections of Billy Beane. I remember him since the A’s traded away some of my favorite¬†Oakland players to acquire him from the Rangers back in 2002.[…]

New Arrival: Buster Posey, c, San Francisco Giants

Buster Posey spent a season playing out here in Hawaii during the now-defunct Hawaiian Winter League. Since then I have been kind of a fan, watching his career progress. He was not…super friendly out here…but nice enough. It’s not every day that I have been able to get a future[…]

New Arrival: Jose Abreu, if, Chicago White Sox

I don’t have a problem rooting for the White Sox. And so I certainly don’t have a problem rooting for their best hitter, Jose Abreu. Especially when the autograph was only like $5. I am not sure what caught my attention, but I have been a fan of his since[…]

New Arrival: Sonny Gray, sp, New York Yankees

In 2015 Sonny Gray went 14-7 with the A’s, with a 2.73 ERA/1.082 WHIP / 143 ERA+. As an Oakland fan, I was pretty thrilled with him and was sure he was the next Tim Hudson. Well, it did not really work out. He struggled in 2016, with an ERA[…]

New Arrival: Dee Gordon, if, Seattle Mariners

I got this autograph for like $5, which I think is a pretty good deal for a guy who has led the league in stolen bases three times and was the 2015 NL hits leader. Gordon was traded from the Marlins to the Mariners a couple months back. Should be[…]

New Arrival: Willie Mays, of, San Francisco Giants

I have been following a couple Willie Mays autographs, but hesitant to pull the trigger since they were all ~$200. Then this one popped up for half the price, so I jumped. I really dig it. It’s in blue ballpoint pen, and bold. The best thing is that its old–it[…]

New Arrival! Randy Johnson, sp, Montreal Expos

There is nothing that I can say about Randy Johnson‘s career that you don’t already know. He was really, really good: 10 All-star game selections 5 x Cy Young Awards 2001 World Series Champion and World Series MVP 4 x ERA titles 303-166 career record Inducted into the Hall of[…]

New Arrival! Matt Lawton, of, Cleveland Indians

I have been trying to get this card–from the 2001 Topps Heritage set–for a while. There are a couple on eBay, but the BINs are (shock!) too hight. I knew if I waited it out I could get it for half what they are offering. And I was right. I[…]
