Max Venable's son, Will Venable, is an outfielder for the San Diego Padres? I'm sure you knew that one! But, did you know that Max's actual name is William McKinley Venable? Now I bet you didn't know that.

Jeff Shaw was selected to the 1998 All Star Game as a member of the Cincinnati Reds, but was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers at the beginning of the All Star break, thus his first game he pitched as a Dodger was in the 1998 All Star Game? Now you do!

here. The 2012 Bowman Chrome printing plate that you see here rounds out the trio. Now I just need to pick up an ultra pro 3 card screw down to display them all together.

I hope everyone had a Happy New Year. My family and I had a decent New Year's day here in Northeast Ohio. However, with the amount of snow we've received over the past week let's just say that I'm sick of winter and anxiously awaiting the start of Spring Training! I was very happy with sticking mostly to my collecting goals last year and was only one goal short on the year (completing my 1953 Topps Cincinnati Reds Team Set). So, due to my previous year's success I'll take another stab at creating some goals for 2014. One objective I have in mind this year will be to concentrate more on my sets and less on vintage Reds cards since I've always enjoyed putting sets together and it's getting more and more difficult to find affordable vintage that's in great shape at a reasonable price. It gets a little discouraging when my monthly card budget is spent on just a few cards. Feel free to check out my goals this year on the right sidebar of this here blog :) Here's to pursuing some card sets this year and wrapping up a few more vintage Reds sets!
