2009 Upper Deck Cal Ripken Jr.- Goodwin Champions Preview (Week 6)

2009 Goodwin Cal Ripken Preview

Year: 2009

Manufacture: Upper Deck

Insert Series: Goodwin Preview

Card Number: GCP-11

How I got the card: Through a trade with Beardy from Beardy’s Baseball Blog

I got this card awhile back from Beardy, this just does not look anything like the 2009 Goodwin Champions. This card is very special to me. When I got this card, it started the interest and drive to start this blog. At the time I had a lot of random, unorganized Ripken cards every where. After the arrival of this card, I started to think about how incredible his career really was. I mean, who has not missed a single day of work/ school in  roughly 17 years!! So I figured why not put most of my collecting efforts to the pursuit of a majority of the 12,ooo+ cards of Ripken Jr.

So thank you again Beardy for helping me organize my collecting goals!

Trade with Beardy

Recently I have been very fortunate to have met so many generous bloggers since I have started back collecting. One blogger is a fellow Orioles fan, which would make you think trades would be next to impossible to complete. But Beardy always has awesome cards to trade and I have been very lucky to have a few that he would like as well.

To make things even better Beardy even sent me a Ripken Relic!

Trade with Beardy from Beardy’s Baseball Blog

Trade with Beardy

Year: 2009

Manufacture: Topps

Insert Series: Historical Commemorative Patch

Card Number: LPR-47

This card was shown already, but I wanted to archive it here.
At first I was not a big fan of the Manufactured Patch cards. But now that I have this awesome card, I have had a change of heart. I really like this card! It’s a simple concept, it is very refreshing to have something other then a small white swatch on a game-used card. I know the patch is not game-used… But I still get a lot of enjoyment in making this card #219 in my collection. Thank you so much Beardy for sending this card to me. I already have a few nice cards to send to you, when you are ready.
