The Leadoff Post

     Hello Everyone! I am a teenager who has been collecting baseball cards since 2009. My favorite team is the Phillies, as it has been since 2003. I went to my first game that year, and it happened to be Kevin Millwood's no-hitter against the Giants. As you can see from the name of the blog, my three favorite players are Hunter Pence, Laynce Nix, and Juan Pierre, but I also collect Roy Oswalt, Erik Kratz, and Andrew Bailey. I was inspired to blog by guys like Nick at Dime Box Heroes and the first blog I ever saw, Night Owl. When I just started collecting, I thought that a "sick" card was a triple patch auto of Derek Jeter, A-Rod, and Albert Pujols. While that would be an awesome card to have, those guys showed me that a card with a cool picture or a base card of your favorite player is just as sick. I will try to post everyday, but with school and all, I might not be able to.
