This blog is about sports cards. I tend to only purchase cheap items so don't come hear expecting to see big money cards. My teams collections are Chicago White Sox and Michigan Wolverines. I also have a bunch of player collections.

Photo Cleansing #8

For those that are new around here, I save photo’s I like as I go through blogs and when I get a few, I’ll post them here for your enjoyment. And it takes less space storing them here then on my computer. I do the same thing on my other blog, only they are usually funny pics or toons. Here we go.

Today, we’ll start with a little Michigan football.  My Sox haven’t fared to well this year so I’m starting to get pumped about college football starting soon.  How soon you ask?  Take a look to your right and down a bit an there you go.  Now on to the pics.


Michigan’s leader, Denard Robinson.  Great kid, very likable.  Could lead us to a great record, maybe a Big Ten title.  I don’t know if we are that good yet, but the excitement out of Ann Arbor is such.  Hopefully the D has improved.  Speaking of D


Hopefully we see this a lot this year.  Our D will make or break us, like it did last year.

Now, off to the only sport playing now, and the best of them all.  Baseball


That’s to funny.  I think I remember seeing a sign like this at a White Sox game a few years ago.  Might have been a Yankees game, you know, back when we could at least beat them once.  Damn Yankees!  Speaking of the Sox


When I saved this picture, Edwin Jackson still pitched for us, then he became a Blue Jay for a few hours and is now a Cardinal.  I didn’t keep the photo for him anyways, I kept it because of the jersey.  I like the vintage jerseys, well, most of them.  The Sox had a few that were kinda hideous.

And the usual vintage baseball pics.



Both Stan “the Man” Musial.


Ernie Banks.  I know, weird seeing a Cub on a White Sox blog.  But I do love baseball and respect the game.


Bill Mazerowski.  Don’t know if this was taken on the home run we all know about or not, but still a cool photo.


He looks mad, or evil.  Don’t stare at it too long, you’ll run away to hide.  Why did I post it, well it’s Tom Seaver.

Now off to that other sports a few people watch.  Not a big fan of the game, or at least the pro game anymore so you know these are going to be more vintage.  Well, technically, the first 3 aren’t vintage photographs but have vintage players.

The 3 new covers of NBA2K12.  I love that they used those 3 players because those were the big 3 when I did watch the NBA.  I didn’t run across any vintage action shots of Jordan like I usually do but I did find a regular photo of him.  Or rather, a magazine cover.


Until next time, keep on collecting.


  1. Very cool photos! I don't recall ever seeing that one of Jordan. I can get lost for hours looking through vintage sports photos.

  2. I was a huge Jordan fan when he was playing and I know I've never seen that one either.
