COMC Haul - Day 19 - A Biggio!!!!

So we are out of the Berkman phase... and onto what will be the VERY short lived Biggio phase. Somehow I only managed to buy one Biggio GU card during this binge... so here it is!

So that's a 2005 Leaf Certified Materials Blue Mirror Game Used Jersey /100!!!! Wow that's a long card title to type out! This card is awesome, from the foil board front to the numbering on the back. I love it.

I am still on the "First Ballot HOF" bandwagon for Biggio. If Larkin is in, with a similar if not slightly less impressive resume, then Biggio is a cinch to get in. With 3,000 hits, the NL HBP record, 291 career HR and an All-Star at 2 positions, well I'm just scratching the surface of his accomplishments. Yes, I'm a homer, but I really think Biggio was one of the best of all time. Alomar is the player most comparable in my opinion. In the "similarity scores" on, he is ranked against 10 similar players, (8) of which are HOF'ers. Anyways, I've got my fingers crossed.
