Home Sports MLB just my Eddie Rosario and Yordan Álvarez cards

just my Eddie Rosario and Yordan Álvarez cards


I haven’t posted much lately, though I’ve actually been working on a very long post that probably won’t be published until 2023 or 2024 (It’s a “time capsule” post that tells a pretty epic tale regarding a heck of a hobby happening here at Baseball Card Breakdown HQ).

For a quick and easy post today, though, I figured I’d see what cards I have from the recent League Championship Series MVPs.

Eddie Rosario helped the Braves take down the Dodgers for the NL pennant by batting .560 with 3 big home runs. He hadn’t been a guy-I-collect, but I dug through my Twins tradeables to see what I had of his, figuring I’ll at least put together a page for my 9-Pocket PC binder.

Happy to find this shiny pair: a 2nd Bowman Chrome refractor (/ 500) and a Topps Chrome Update Mega Box RC I pulled back in 2015.

He was also in the hobby boxes I opened of Topps Pro Debut in 2014 and 2015, along with a few other more-recent cards that made their way to me, probably mostly from Rod’s drop-offs.

-o-

In the AL, Yordan Álvarez single-handedly out hit the entire Red Sox lineup over the last 2 games of the ALCS to lead the Astros back to the fall classic. After missing most of 2020 to injury, seemed like collectors kinda gave up on the ’19 ROY– (oh yeah, and of course there was the whole cheating scandal that sunk the prices of all modern Astros cards) – but he’s had quite the comeback. I’ve been building a little PC of him for a while, though I do not have anything too exciting.

A couple shiny early Bowman inserts.

A couple more Bowmans with some Topps RCs. (Opening Day rookie dupe if anyone wants to make a trade offer.)

And a few more.

Hopefully it’s an exciting World Series.

Gotta go. Thanks for reading!
