Posters

Hello everyone.
This is not a new item. It is one I had from last year. 2019 Eastern League All-Star Game, The Diamond in Richmond, Virginia. The Diamond is home to The Richmond Flying Squirrels. What an event it was!! A four day event! Kicked off the Sunday before with a celebration on Browns Island, Monday in Downtown Richmonds 

Business District with prizes and giveaways, and later that night a Country Music Jam at Richmond Raceway (my friend and I did not go to that event), and Tuesday night was the Home Run Derby with an event at The Diamond around noon to have some prizes and giveaways, finally The 
Eastern League All Star Game at The Diamond, it was an outstanding weekend!

Before the All Star Game, fans were invited to get autographs. I had won the poster in the image and had the entire Western Division autograph that poster. 

Unfortunately, due to the amount of people and time, many had time for one All Star Team. I was fortunate enough to get the division I wanted.

The other item, is a poster I designed last year of Long Island Ducks manager, Wally Backman, who was nice enough to sign it for me prior to a Sunday afternoon game.

Baseball trading cards?

With the unsure start of the baseball season, some might wonder about trading cards in 2020.
I am kidding of course. No one can possibly predict what will happen, even though it seems a bit gloomy.
I was feeling a little creative. I came up with these cards.

Making use of time with a hobby.

I made some use of my time to take my mind off of this recent pandemic and the stress that goes with it.
Aside from other useful time situations (chores and other life things), I organized some of my collectables.

I set up a little memorabilia section in my room.

Hobbies, Activities and Other Interests Discussion

Hello everyone,
I wanted to make this post, being curious as to what people are doing during this recent pandemic. Most folks are pretty much staying home, working from home or heading out to work if that is the case.

This post is basically to see what hobbies or other interests people are involved with. Its understandable about folks being stressed or more stressed then usual.
Recently, I have been (other then normal life activities) taking walks, reading and enjoying adding to my baseball collection/memorabilia, creating art.

During the course of about a month or two, I acquired some Long Island Ducks [members of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, Liberty Division 2019 Atlantic League Champions] memorabilia and a Brooklyn Cyclones item [NY-Penn League A-Short Season – McNamara Division affiliated with the New York Mets, 2019 NY-Penn League Champions]. Its a fun activity to be involved with.

The recent collectables are:
Wally Backman Las Vegas Bobblehead SGA
One Brooklyn Cyclones promotional baseball bat
Two Long Island Ducks promotional giveaway lunch boxes
Two promotional baseballs with Long Island Ducks logos on them
Two baseball bats [one with no logos/markings about 30 inches and one 24 inch]
Four imitation baseball batting helmets (served with soft ice cream at the games, LOL no there was no ice cream in the helmets I received)
One 2015 Justin Davies Bobblehead [Long Island Ducks promotional giveaway]
One 2005 Buddy Harrelson Bobblehead [Long Island Ducks promotional giveaway]
One 2019 “The Face of Steeple Chase” Bobblehead [a Brooklyn Cyclones giveaway/promotional item. Look it up, there is an interesting amount of history about Coney Island, NY]
A beverage cup from the very first season of The Long Island Ducks [inaugural season 2000] with logos-season schedule on it
Two authentic Beaver Baseball bats from The Beaver Bat company [that was a wonderful purchase, my friend and I were able to tour the small shop and see where the bats were made and how they were made]
Six Ellie Rodriguez baseball cards [former major league catcher, recently signed manager of The Road Warriors, a team in The Atlantic League of Professional Baseball]
One Joe Pepitone autographed baseball card

I am invite you to partake in this discussion. I would love to here what people are doing during this pandemic. I look forward to hearing from everyone.

I wish everyone well and I hope they do well during this crisis.
