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! 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[…]

New Arrival: Brett Butler, of, Cleveland Indians

Brett Butler was only with the Indians from 1984-1987. During that run he was pretty great, hitting .288/.373/.369. He averaged 5 HR and 41 SB a year, all while playing a very solid center field. He was the kind of center fielder that any team in the league would fall[…]

New Arrival: Grady Sizemore, of, Cleveland Indians

I bought this card as part of a lot from a collector who was clearing out some cards. When I saw he had a Sizemore I jumped. He was always tough to get in person, and despite being retired his autograph is still sought after by collectors. Grady Sizemore will always[…]

New Arrival: Will Benson, of, Cleveland Indians

Will Benson was the 14th overall pick in the 2016 draft. He was a high school pick out of Atlanta, Georgia. Power is his game. He has a ton of it. The biggest issue is that he has problems making contact…and you can’t hit for power unless you can hit[…]

New Arrival: Tyler Olson, rp, Cleveland Indians

It always sucks when a player on your favorite team is having a breakout season and you don’t have an autograph. Tyler Olson is one of those. Luckily, after 4 months of trying, I finally was able to snag my first one. Tyler Olson was drafted in the 7th round out of[…]

New Arrival: Will Benson, of, Cleveland Indians

I was not really thrilled when the Indians drafted Benson, since some scouts questioned his hitting tool and he would be a project. I am risk averse. But…I guess that is silly. If the Indians would have taken a polished college bat I would have been complaining about how we[…]
