Dime Boxes. Nick has a tendency of finding some great cardboard and I knew I had to add this 1995 SP Rod Beck card to my Album of Amazing. I don't think there's another baseball card out there with a ballplayer sporting some boxing gloves. I wonder who would have won in a fight between Rod Beck and Nolan Ryan.

drewscards posted on his blog about some free cards he was giving away. Needless to say, when I saw that the Reds were available I jumped at the chance to grab them. Yesterday the package arrived and I must say that I was very impressed and happy with Drew's generosity. There must have been close to 100 cards in the package. I was able to pull about 25 cards that I will be sending out for autographs. I've decided to pay it forward and send out the other cards I don't need (some Bench, Morgan, and Foster cards included in the mix) along with some other cards I've thrown into the mix, to the first person that comments. Thanks again Drew!

Here are the latest two cards to my Album of Amazing project: a 1991 Stadium Club Eric Show and a 1994 Upper Deck Chuck Finley. I like the fact that Finley is rocking out on a broken bat, a very nice touch. The Show card is special to me in so many ways. He was the pitcher that gave up Pete Rose's record breaking 4192 hit on September 11, 1985. Sadly, Show died at the age of 37 from acute morphine and cocaine intoxication at a drug rehab center.
