Mo' Hot Cards


Some Ducks, a Frenchman and a Yadi. 

Here's a quick one for a Wednesday night. Trevor of Bump and Run sent over a handful of cards back in June that I'm just getting around to now.


More additions to my Ducks collection included a trio of Kenjon Barner cards. I really like this throwback Bowman style insert. This is something that Topps unfortunately can't make anymore.


The best Barner, though, was this very limited orange autograph from the 2013 Bowman Chrome set. Barner has managed to hang around the NFL since he left Oregon, mostly serving as a return specialist. He's with the Falcons for the 2019 season.


The Blazers never really properly replaced Nicolas Batum after he left for Charlotte, making the wing a position of some vulnerability in the Dame + CJ era. The Blazers made a number changes this summer to finally address this, at least for the coming season. It'll be interesting to see how it works out. Anyway, this is a great looking card. It's a sticker auto, but the sticker is not very intrusive. Hey, sometimes the clear tape thing actually works!


I'm grumpy with baseball at the moment as the Cards suffered two excruciating losses in less than 24 hours, and the Brewers are basically invincible since they ditched that deadweight Yelich guy. Here's hoping this Yadi can cheer me up a bit.

Nice cards. At first I was thinking that was a scratch and sniff Yadi. Really glad I was wrong.

Nic looks like such a baby on that card! It's too bad that he never did reach the full potential that certain folks saw in him.

Seeing that Batum reminded me of a fellow blogger who was a big collector of him. But G Moses hasn't written anything in years.
