Recent pickup

Picked this up in a trade over the weekend. It is a coffee table type book of mostly pictures by Ronald Modra. The pictures are all baseball with comments by Modra throughout the book. There is only one Ranger pictured in the book but Pudge is on the cover. The same picture is inside along with the story of how it was obtained. Neat story. While it appears that Ivan just threw out a runner in a close game he is actually standing in the bullpen in Arlington before the game even started. I don't know about you but I really like these non-card memorabilia items.

Check out that intensity for a bullpen session. Thats one of the reasons I am a Pudge fan.

Same here. His playing style is one of the reasons I got back into following the game after the strikes.
