Long-lost treasure II: More Major League minor league cards

The off-season is like watching Major League: Back To The Minors — you just can’t wait for it to end.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not the worst baseball movie I have ever seen — even if it takes the Major League name created by my boys, my Cleveland Indians, and stomps it into the ground complete with a bee sting in the ass.

From the mascot? We could only be so lucky — that’s one big bee. (And he’s got an attitude as you can see at left.)

It’s worth watching once, OK maybe twice, just so you can get the full impact of computer-generated baseballs — from the pitcher’s hand to the plate and off the bat and into the outfield — along with Ted McGinley.

The Ted McGinley.

(Can’t hate Scott Bakula, err Gus Cantrell … he’s all this movie’s got.)

If it had nothing to do with the Major League franchise, then some of the players might be acceptable, funny, characters. But what they did to Pedro Cerrano once again?

And how did Roger Dorn find all that money to buy the Minnesota Twins when “that bitch” Rachel Phelps took him to the cleaners when he owned the Tribe? And when did Harry Doyle lose his job in Cleveland?

Painful.

But at least there are baseball cards.

See them all below.

Lou Brown hates the off-season

Things have been slow around here not because there’s not plenty of Major League goodness, but because I hate the off-season. While Major League is always in season, it’s just tougher to get into baseball mode when there’s, well, no baseball.

That said, I do have something in the works coming soon…

Until then, poke around on youhitlikeshit.com and you might find some cool stuff.



Is that you, Tolbert?

tolbertSure, Major League was 20 years ago, but this Tolbert is the only Tolbert in MLB history.

Collectors tell me that the Rookie Card logo has resulted in some old rookies appearing on baseball cards these days, but this just might take the cake.

Maybe Jake Taylor was talking to his daddy… I just don’t know.

At least he’s not a Yankee.

Hey, Topps … how long do we have to wait for Pedro?

I’d like to think that this card would be in the forthcoming 2009 Topps Heritage high-number baseball card set, but 20 years of waiting for a Pedro Cerrano card makes me think it’s just ain’t happening.

Hey, Rovell … this is a fist pump!

CNBC’s Darren Rovell has Twittered that tennis star Rafael Nadal has the best fist pump in sports. I — and Ricky Vaughn — care to differ.



My defining moment

Good thing we got Wild Thing some glasses…

Sometimes it’s the little things that remind you of key moments — like when we finally got Ricky Vaughn some glasses.

Here’s what his 1989 Topps Record Breaker card would have looked like had they not decided to play nice and pull it from the set. After he started giving ’em the heater and was much more successful, the powers that be apparently opted to not pick on my rookie.
