The Legend

I love patch cards of the older players.  You usually have to pay a premium so I only own a handful, but I'm always looking to add more.  The card pictured is from 2004 SP Game Used Patch and it showcases a beautiful game used patch and auto of Bill Mazeroski.  I bought this card way back around the time this set came out so I have no idea what the heck I paid for it.  At the time I would have been in college so I'm assuming I got a good deal or used some Christmas money to pay for it.

I've mentioned before that one of the luxuries of collecting to Pirates is that a majority of the retired/legend players are easy on the budget.  It allows you to splurge every once in a while on a premium card such as this one.  Does anybody else have any cards from SP Game Used Patch?  I would love to see some other patch autos from this set.  Hard to believe that set is 10 years old.

*Really appreciate everybody linking up my page on their own blogs.  I'm so glad I decided to start the blog as it has paid dividends in a lot of different ways.  First and foremost it is refreshing to talk to people who are not interested in the financial aspects of collecting.  It is fun to have a connection to every team in the blog world.  When I open a pack of cards I instantly start thinking who might like what I pulled. Always feel free to shoot me an email if you are interested in trading.  I have many more cards that are not listed on the trade bait link.


  1. Wow... awesome patch! I'm pretty sure I don't have any patches from this set. In fact... I probably have less than 5 patches in my PC.

  2. Your site has now been added to the Sports Card Blogroll.
