Braves Collection: 2009 Gwinnett Braves Team Set

I picked up a second one of these at a recent Gwinnett Braves game for just 2 bucks! Why a second? So I could put the Tom Glavine card in my Glavine binder of course. As for this set, the fronts look great and the backs are so bad that my scanner refused to take the image.
A lot of people think this guy has a Cy Young in his future. I'm one of them. Hopefully, he'll be more consistant down the stretch this year than he has been so far this year.
This guy is one of my favorite players and it was heartbreaking to see him get hurt. You don't think his arm troubles have anything to do with his stupid straight billed hat, do you?
This guy looks like a shoe-in to with the International League batting title. Sadly, he seems destined to be a AAA DH forever. I was glad he got his cup of coffee last year. I hope he gets another one ... unless that means Freeman goes on the DL. Then I don't want him in the big leagues.

Dude, if I had been thinking, I would have picked up a stack of them and sent them out. Now the f'n season is over. They had so many, maybe they'll still have some next year.

I had to pay $1 alone for the Brooks Conrad card for my wife! $2 bucks is a steal of a deal. Looking forward to catching them Sunday evening when they stroll into Charlotte (Fort Mill, SC actually) to take on the Knights.

I think I'm going to hit the road to see more of the Braves MiLB teams next year. Have fun at the game!
