I saw the sign!

And it opened up my eyes!  Here's the latest purchase for the man cave. This Louisville Slugger tin sign is fantastic on so many levels. It's the same color as my baseball team, it looks old, and it's a representation of the true American pastime (I still don't acknowledge football as holding that title). With this addition, there are only a few more items left to purchase and I'll be ready to show off the room. Just bear with me as I wrap it up and have it ready to show in the coming weeks.

My latest, and possibly last, eTopps card

I finally found the 2005 eTopps Piazza card that had eluded me the past couple of months. While I would have preferred to see Piazza in his catcher's gear (similar to Pudge), I can't complain and I'm content with the fact that Topps released an eTopps card of Piazza in 2005. This marks my 12th 2005 eTopps card and though I'm content with what players I have in my collection, I'm still mulling over the idea of picking up David Ortiz, Miguel Cabrerra, and Adiran Beltre since I think those three will eventually make their way into Cooperstown.
