Finally sucked it up and bought one:

matsuihideki21fivestarauto.jpgHideki Matsui - Spent one season with the A's, 2011. The only A's cards he got were in the Topps Attax set so I assume Topps didn't have a regular card deal with him that year but they had a different deal for "game" cards like Attax that they could include him in. He wasn't good that year but it was fun to have a legit star on a bad team.

Now at 712/719 - need 4 players from this year and 3 very obscure guys from 20+ years ago.

One upgrade today, and I fell behind a little with the recent debuts of JP Sears and Cal Stevenson...haven't found anything for them yet.

jonesdougreligiouscard.jpgDoug Jones - I had him on a non-A's card and upgraded to this homemade religious testimony card that I guess he sent out with TTM requests. The shadow effect reminds me of 1992 Upper Deck a little.

Down to 712/721 now. At least my needs are still in the single digits.

Looooooosiana!
I can confirm that these were obtained by sending him an autograph request. I'm sure it is obvious, but I can never decipher what the PTL means.

The A's continue to say screw it and call up guys. In the last ten days we've had the debuts of top prospect Shea Langeliers plus David MacKinnon and Norge Ruiz. Luckily I had something for two of them, MacKinnon is tougher.

langeliersshea19contauto99.jpgShea Langeliers - Was doing great in the minors after the A's picked him up in the Matt Olson trade, and it was time to come up. I guess this means Sean Murphy will for sure be traded this winter.

ruiznorge17leafmetal.jpgNorge Ruiz - I had given up on him a long time ago because I hadn't heard much about him, but he was promoted last week (and got absolutely wrecked in one relief appearance). I've had this Leaf Metal signature sitting around for 5 years.

So that increases my needs to 10, 714/724.

Four debuts since my last update as the A's just keep throwing new guys out there. I don't have anything of Ken Waldichuk (expensive) and Tyler Cyr (obscure) but I do have these two:

payampsjoel13elite.jpgJoel Payamps - Reliever has already made 7 appearances and is pitching well.

thomascody20elite.jpgCody Thomas - Hitting .438 through his first 5 games. Brother-in-law of Bobby Witt Jr.

2 new hits and 2 new misses means I am at 716/728 now.

One new one:

wilescollin13bowman.jpgCollin Wiles - Made his MLB debut today, ten years after being drafted by the Rangers. Got knocked around for 2 runs in one and a third innings.

Staying at 12 needed, 717/729.

A surprise call-up:

diazjordan21bc.jpgJordan Diaz - A bit of an actual prospect this time rather than a middle reliever or somebody picked up on waivers. Went 1 for 3 in his debut.

Now at 718/730.
