The Winter Meetings Have Got Me Thinking Baseball

Here's an item I picked up well over a year ago that I was waiting for just the right time to post. With the Baseball Winter Meetings finishing up, I thought it was as good of a time as any to finally post this 36 card set. Plus, I like how the larger images look on the site.

I pride myself on having a solid knowledge base on the sports memorabilia and trading card hobby, but to be honest, I really don't know very much about this set. Sure, I know all about the Star Co. and their regional releases from the 80's and very early 90's. I'm also well aware of Mr. October's exploits. However, I'm not really sure why these cards were produced as perforated threesomes. If anyone has any info to shed some light on the set, that would be great. I paid just under $5.00 including shipping for the set and am happy to add it to my collection. Here's an eBay listing that shows all twelve sheets from an open set.

As for the Winter Meetings, news is coming out that the Yanks are talking with Cliff Lee as you read about a seven year deal. With the Red Sox coming in late last night and signing Carl Crawford, the signing of Lee is imperative for the Yankees.

- Question: I'm sure there will be more moves and signings to come during the remainder of the MLB off-season, but how did your team do during the Winter Meetings/off-season thusfar?


  1. Sweet cards! I think it's gonna be hard for Lee to turn down what the Yanks offer. The Red Sox look like they are for real though.

    I like what my Dodgers did as far as the starting pitching, signing Ted Lilly, Hiroki Kuroda, Jon Garland and Vicente Padilla to go along with Chad Billingsley and Clayton Kershaw.

    I'm not so happy about the offensive moves the Dodgers made, signing Jay Gibbons, Juan Uribe, Rod Barajas and Dioner Navaro.

  2. I def think this is a pitchers game, so it's good to see the Dodgers improve in that area. I would love to see a Dodgers-Yankee World Series!!!
