2008 Bowman Sterling (BS-NM) Nick MarkakisThe card above is a fast delivery surprise from ebay we received in the mail today in addition to the cards from the group break. It’s a 2008 Bowman Sterling authentic game-worn jersey card of Nick Markakis. According to the blurb on the back of the card, “Nick is a pure hitter whose overall reliability has been demonstrated by back-to-back seasons in 2007 and 2008 with more than 40 doubles. He also led the Orioles and ranked among the American League top 10 with 112 RBI in ’07, which was the highest total by a Baltimore outfielder since 1999.” That’s pretty remarkable. We are looking forward to watching Nick play in the upcoming season, just months away!

We will have the post about the group break cards posted tomorrow. My favorite is the Cal Ripken Jr. autograph card (2/8). Hope everyone enjoys looking at them as much as we do.
