Tyler Goeddel My New Prospect To Collect.

Meet my new Rays prospect to collect, Mr Tyler Goeddel. Picked 41st in the 2011 draft, Goeddel is a third baseman from California who gave up the chance to go to UCLA to sign with the Rays. Tyler is still only nineteen years old, standing at six foot four he only weighs in at 175lbs. The Rays will be hoping he puts some muscle on his rangy frame.

Rated the 7th best 3rd base prospect in 2011 by Baseball America. Seen here on last years coolest design,the Leaf Valiant card. This is my first but not my last Goeddel auto. As with all the prospects I collect it's not really for profit just for the fun of collecting a young guy and seeing how he pans out. The Rays will be hoping for a good progression from him, this is so he will take over from Evan Longoria when the Rays have to trade him away due to his salary becoming unmanageable or the partying finally gets him.

My First 2012 Card.

Hurrah!!!! My first card from a 2012 set. A James Shields Golden Moments card from series one. For the life of me I can't remember what the golden moment was, something to do with Randy Johnson. Always nice to have pc cards, but I'm getting a bit pissed off with the Topps overkill on themes. Last year it was diamonds which was fair enough given it was the Diamond Anniversary of the company. This year it's gold, which does seem to have brought out some rather spectacular vomit style inserts. I can't wait to get all those added to the ole pc.

On the bright side it's good to see James Shields on an insert that celebrates goodness, after a lacklustre/crap 2010, 2011 was certainly a golden year for him.
