Grand Cards: Birdie and Hoot

Birdie and Hoot

A very quick post as I attempt to get back into the swing of things

We live in an information society. There is tons of information out there, available, for free, to anyone. The problem is sifting through it to find what is valuable. I've tried to do the sifting on behalf of Tigers card collectors and fans, but even I am only one person. That's why it's so great when I get emails like this:
I recently purchased 2 cards for my PC that you may want to add to the pictures for 2009 Legendary Cuts. You don't have a picture for the Birdie Tebbetts or Hoot Evers. I attached a picture of the Birdie Tebbetts I have coming in and the Hoot Evers is different than the one I am getting, but this one in on eBay right now. Just thought I would let you know in case you hadn't seen them.

That's from blog-reader Mike who also happens to have a mean collection of Tigers autograph cards. He is the embodiment of my dream-reader: "I read your blog and have some information that can help make it better. Here's some pictures." All blog writers should be so lucky.

Thanks to Mike, not only do I have two more cards to show anybody who is interested, but they are for players named "Birdie" and "Hoot," and really, who could ask for anything more?

2009 SP Legendary Cuts #LC236 Hoot Evers (#/20)

2009 SP Legendary Cuts #LC267 Birdie Tebbetts (#/20)

You can now find these cards conveniently added to the 2009 SP Legendary Cuts gallery (where there are many, many more holes to fill).


  1. AWESOME!!! 2 great looking sigs of 2 great players with great names... You DO have great readers...

  2. Very nice! I love seeing the old Tigers involved in the card sets.

  3. I'm famous!!! Lol! It's funny, I didn't even notice the similarity in the names. I'm just glad to help a fellow Tigers fan with a great Tigers blog. I am always on the lookout so I will let you know if I find more!
