Card of the Day: Buck Herzog ’02 Topps T206 Bat Relic

When I learned that Topps was bringing back its popular T206 brand that they made back in 2002, I was excited to see what unique relic cards they planned to include.  So far I haven’t seen anything too exciting.  They have Ruth, Foxx, Mantle and A-rod.  But I really enjoy the different relic cards that they included with the 2002 version like Jimmy Collins, Buck Herzog, and Johnny Evers.  The ’09 version just seems like it has the same old people.  Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to pull a a bat card of Ruth or Cobb, but I think the ’02 product has more of a selection of old players that you don’t see very often.

Card of the Day: Jack Buck ’04 UD SP Legendary Cuts Auto

Its been a long time since I’ve posted a “Card of the Day”, so I thought I would start it up again.  One of the greatest broadcasters in the history of baseball would have to be Jack Buck.  Buck won the Ford C. Frick Award in 1987 from the Baseball Hall of Fame for his many years of broadcasting St. Louis Cardinals games.  You probably have seen is son Joe Buck announcing the World Series this last week.  Jack Buck has a few cut signatures for collectors to find.  All can be found in Upper Deck products such as Sweet Spot and Legendary Cuts.  For me, the perfect broadcaster cut signature card would have to contain four autographs:  Harry Kalas, Richie Ashburn, Jack Buck, and Harry Carey.
