 1970 Topps Carl Yastrzemski 

Carl Yaztremski was one of the coolest players in the game and played every season of his career for the Boston Red Sox! His career landed him into the HOF! His bat is available here on the Around the Horn online store! It's JSA authenticated and a true beauty!

One of the Most Interesting Cards Ever

This 2006 Topps Alex Gordon card might be one of the most interesting cards on the planet! Where is he? Where are his stats? How could Topps have possibly gotten away with printing blank Alex Gordon cards? Either way, these gaffed babies are jumping in value-white and gold, and playerless! Are we to assume of this were 1957, some kid would have simply drawn Gordon in? Are collectors in 2006 privy enough to not mess with imperfection? So many questions. Such a fabulous card! 

***Reggie's Rookie!!!***

Reggie is a legend. Growing up, I remember fetching some Reggie's bars for my dad up the block! A clutch HOFer, this card is must for any collection as it only gains in value over time! Check out the brilliant corners of this gem! A marvel!

***1982 Fleer Cello Packs Box SEALED!!!

This is the 1982 Fleer cello-pack box, which is loaded with big hits and treasures inside! The best part mainly, of opening boxes like these, are the cards are basically all going to be in mint condition! From pack to the protective case! A simple boarder, these 1982 Fleer have simple backs and were a hit at the comic book store back in the day!
 Johnny Bench towards the end of his career...
 Graded 10 Ripken Jr rookie cards go for $500 and up!
 Fastest man alive to ever step on a baseball field!
 A signed Carter '82 Fleer--amazing!
 Carter with Parker AKA The Cobra!
The back-flipping shortstop, Hall of Famer, Ozzie Smith!

A box full of memories--many of the cards feature straight-up portraits as well, with little to no action! Cello packs are the see-through wrapped packs, which have more cards than your usual wax-packs which wrap the cards in wax paper.

Lloyd "Little Poison" Waner's Rookie Card!

It's true! I presently have this HOFer's rookie card from 1933 Goudey, online HERE!

The card is in Good condition with rounded corners and mild stains on the top of the front. Waner, at 5'9 tall, was considered "little". A great hitter, he and his brother, Paul, set the MLB record for most collected hits by a brother team! Lloyd also managed to hit over .300 in ten different seasons--quite an accomplished feat and just one of many reasons why he made it into the Hall of Fame.

This Waner rookie will certainly gain in value over time.

Around the Horn Cards: A Digital Store with More

Getting everything up online is taking a while, but it is happening! We have a fairly large inventory over here, but it's all getting up and out! I'm a huge fan of Mercari and hope to see y'all there! It's a great platform and am presently utilizing it more than EBay.
