AI wrote up a blog about how Ken Griffey Jr's career may have looked had he been able to stay healthy.

Here's a quick prediction from the SwapBOT3000 on Bo Jackson's baseball stats if he only played baseball. What do you think? I think his average could have snuck up a bit higher and maybe even steals.

Had Bo Jackson not sustained his career-ending hip injury and had focused solely on baseball, it is difficult to predict with certainty what his career stats would have been. However, we can look at his performance during the four full seasons he played in the Major Leagues (1987-1990) and make some estimates based on that.

During those four seasons, Bo Jackson had a career batting average of .250 with 141 runs scored, 141 RBI, and 82 home runs in 515 games played. If we assume that he would have continued to improve and play at a similar level for another 8-10 seasons, it is reasonable to estimate that his career stats could have looked something like this:

  • Batting average: .250-.260

  • Steals: 300-375

  • RBI: 1,500-1,750

  • Home runs: 450-525


Here's some stuff I've been checking for on eBay. Photos take you to current listings.

Chrome Sonic had a sweet case hit called Expose that we missed. I found this one during a hunt for more Manny Machado cards. The Witt is an Orange refractor, but there is a base as well. Pretty cool non-auto card to add to a PC.


There are more cool Super Rare Red Foil from the 2023 Big League set. Not just Corbin Carroll. Rookies including Harris and Greene and Stars like Judge and Pujols. This was a cool addition to Big League.


I'm still really liking the 2023 Topps Golden Mirror Variations. The concept, rarity, and photos. Nice change to how variations are normally done. More have surfaced and hit eBay, so hopefully prices are regulating a bit.


I think we can all agree, Fleer Pro Vision was one of most fun inserts from the 90's. Across all sports, these were always nice and stood the test of time.


Wanna grab the oversized box topper from the 2023 Topps Super Boxes?

Here's some highlights from 2 Big League breaks and Friday Night Mixer



Jomboy with the Weekly Dumb series is just great content.


A glimpse of how Rickey Henderson could make so much happen from a walk.


Not Baseball, but I think we can all enjoy a good staredown! How about from the world of MMA.

This past weekend I spent some time condensing 4 binders into one of the UltraPro Eclipse Portfolios. These have been become my choice for binders. It saves space and forces me to narrow down the collection to only stuff I really like. It's been a fun project and this about finishes it up! Here are some pages to share from the new binder, I probably could have picked better pages to show so maybe I'll do another entry with more. I thought about going live to show everyone but I'm worried it wouldn't go well on camera.


Thanks everyone for reading and continuing to support the newsletter, website, and channel!

I like the idea of condensing down to binders and may do the same. Displays nicely and forces you to not let the PC get too big.
