A Jedd Gyorko #Mailday

Since he’s from my hometown and played at my alma mater, I’ve been interested in picking up Jedd Gyorko cards.  It’s been difficult for a couple of reasons.  First, I don’t collect baseball anymore.  I don’t buy boxes or packs, so it’s not like I hit any Gyorkos, nor am I on baseball trading boards.  I’ve decided to limit my Gyorko collection and sell off (when I have time to organize) some of what I have.  Hopefully he will figure out his batting issues and they’ll have a bit more value by that time.

I’ve decided that all I want are cards in his WVU uniform, any of the Topps cards with the rookie trophy on them (loved those as a kid) and his cards from Heritage.  While this card does fit into those categories, I normally wouldn’t pick it up.


I don’t care about graded cards.  They are tough to store.  They really aren’t “worth” that much unless they are of the highest grade.  At that point I can’t afford them anyway.  I’ve never even sent an item off for grading, though that soon may change.

Nonetheless, I felt this card was a bargain for a 9.5/10 grade, so I decided to pick it up for my WVU collection.  I’m not sure what to do from here, though.  Do I keep as is?  Send to get slabbed?  Who knows.  All I know is that I am really happy to have it.

Hail, West Virginia!
