Welcome to the Hall, Boys.
January 6th, 2011 by slangon

I’m sure nobody’s heard about this yet, but yesterday, a group known as the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, or BBWAA for short, announced that they have elected to include Roberto Alomar and Bert Blyleven as members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame in a place called Cooperstown, New York. I happen to pay attention to super trivial events like that, so I’d thought I’d share it with you.

I was super psyched to hear that another player is going into the Hall of Fame as a Met. What’s that? He’s not going in a Met? Oh, yeah. That’s right. He was terrible when he was on the Mets. Oh well. Congrats anyway, Roberto.

I’m sure I’m not the first person to say this, but I’m generally not a huge fan of early 90’s baseball cards. I understand the place that these early Upper Deck sets have in the history of the hobby, and I understand that they’re a product of their times and blah, blah, blah, but when it comes down to it, I never get the hankerin’ to break them out and thumb through them just for fun. All that being said, for me to a like a card from this era of cardboard, there must be something really special about it. Such is the case with this 1990 Upper Deck Bert Blyleven. I always thought it would be awesome if someone put out a whole set of cards that somehow incorporated motion into the card design. What’s that? Sportflics? 1986? Really? Oh well. Congrats anyway to you too, Bert.
