Back from Cooperstown!

Cooperstown, NY has to be one of the best towns in the country if you are a baseball fan.  I walked around and looked at every single HOF plaque.  I had no idea that there were so many writers in the Hall of Fame.  While I was there I picked up a “Goose” Gossage 2008 HOF inductee bat that is limited to 500.  That may seem like a lot of baseball bats, but 500 isn’t very many.  I also picked up a bat that is modeled after the type Napoleon Lajoie used.  Right down the street from the HOF there is a wax museum which has about 30 different wax figures on display.  Below are a few pictures that I took.  The rest of the pictures can be found in the Photostream to your right.  Enjoy!!!

  1. Great Photos! I had the pleasure of going to Cooperstown last year as my wife took me there for my birthday. I must say it’s a great little town and the HOF is a trip that every baseball fan must make. If your interested, here is my collection of photos: http://flickr.com/photos/cooper-pics/sets/72157600591690953/

  2. Awesome photos!!

  3. Do you know where I could purchase large quantities of Ernie Grunfeld basketball cards.

    Thanks……………….

  4. Larry,

    The Beckett Marketplace seems to be the best place to find cards of Ernie Grunfeld. eBay, Sportslots, and a few other places don’t have very much. Here is a link to the site:

    I’m not sure how many you plan to buy, but they do have some sellers with 50+ and 70+ cards of Grunfeld. I hope that was able to help. Thanks.

  5. Again the snaps are shoot well through the sports and sports cards concerns. To buy a right sports card, there has to have an authentic shop or resource.
