Card of the Day: Manny Trillo 1980 Topps #90

Manny Machado In A Padres Uniform – Baseball Authenticated Masterpieces Has It!

Two major MLB free agents have been on constant watch this winter to see which teams they decide to sign with.  Its no secret that I’m talking about Manny Machado and Bryce Harper.  Every single day the rumors would change as to who might be in the lead to land each superstar.

As of this writing, Bryce Harper is still up for grabs.  I hope he goes to the Phillies.  Manny Machado on the other hand has signed a 10-year deal with the Padres worth $300 million.  That’s a lot of cheddar.

One of his earliest Padres collectibles will come from Piece of the Game’s Baseball Authenticated Masterpieces.  Each player in the main set will have (3) game-used, hand-painted, and autographed baseballs.  The artist, Monty Sheldon, saved a few Manny Machado and Bryce Harper balls to paint until each player signed with their new team.

Baseball Authenticated Masterpieces is scheduled to be released this spring.

Collecting Manny Pacquiao

Last night in front of 40,000+ people, Manny Pacquiao defeated Antonio Margarito and obtained the WBC super-welterweight championship.  At one point during the fight, Pacquiao actually asked the referee if the fight should be stopped because he thought he might do permanent damage to Margarito.  Pacquiao is already going down as one of the greatest fighters in history.

As far as collecting goes, Pacquiao doesn’t have a ton of cards.  I’m surprised that Sportkings hasn’t included him in any of their products.  For you die hard Pacquiao fans, you’ll find his most valuable cards in Famous Fabrics.  He has a handful of boxing relics found in those sets.  Even though his image doesn’t appear on any of those cards, they still don’t come cheap.  It wouldn’t surprise me if you see more of his cards made.  I guess for now you’ll just have to stick with my own personal Sports Card Info custom Pacquiao card.
