Last month I posted (with the help of Katy Perry and her bouncing boobs) about how I wanted to complete a nameplate of my last name using players from the Pirates from those Letter cards that UD, Finest, Razor has done in the past. It was a fun idea and I am getting closer to completing the goal. Really really close actually.
Today I got the Bill Mazeroski I won on ebay. Maz cards never go cheap on ebay. Maybe because he's the greatest defensive 2nd baseman of all time. Maybe because a lot of people love him for defeating the Yankees with a single swing of the bat in 1960. Maybe because he's a very humble and kind man. Whatever the reason, it's tough to get steals on ebay when it comes to Maz cards. This "K" was no different as it cost me $19.99 shipped. There's not too many Pirates with Ks in their names though so I had to pull the trigger since the card is limited to 15.
I also managed to grab the letter Y from Jason Bay. This makes my 4th manufactured letter auto by Bay
Here's the layout so far
Extra letters for my future nameplate projects that I haven't determined yet.
