This box was McAuliffe heavy, as you will see coming up.

A Lot of Tigers: 1961 Topps

Getting back in the swing of things, back to some semi-irregular posting.  The Hot Corner presents the latest installment of A Lot of Tigers, the 1,500 count shoebox I purchased during the holiday season.  This time 1961 gets a boost.  

Overall, I really like the simple design.

How Did You Know?

Winter slows me down, we have had a few "cold" days in mid-Michigan, no school last Thursday or Friday with -20 degrees on the dial.  I also get busy from late October to March with high school wrestling, maintaining my work commitments and family time.  So, for the loyal Hot Corner community, you get left behind, sorry, not sorry.

That doesn't mean I am not active on the collecting scene, my trade buddy Kerry of Cards on Cards sent me a load of Tigers over the weekend and did he ever crush my team set needs!

For some reason this is my first 2013 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects cards, send me your Tigers!

These two "odd-ball" cards finished the 1990 Kay Bee Topps of three and the Shining Star Gibson is awesome!

Here comes a complete team set of 1998 Fleer Tradition Update

This may be the best card of the bunch as Granderson XRC!

This SportFlick of Fruit Loops knocked off yet another team set!!!

Look at all that goodness, thanks Kerry!

Tiger Tribute: Dave Bergman

It was announced today that former Tiger Dave Bergman passed away over the weekend.

Tigers acquired Bergman in the 1984 season, which worked out for everybody and stuck around through 1992.

My wife took batting practice with Dave Bergman prior to the All-Star game in Detroit.

Unfortunatley, Bergman died too young at age 61.
