Loved by the fan base and the Mexican community, a combination of his desire to pursue...
It's time to take a look back at my 2012 Collecting Goals and see how I did.Goal 1: Focus primarily on my Kemp, Kershaw, Martin, Getzlaf, Rosen, and Campanella collections. I'm particularly interested in picking up rarer cards of Matt, Clayton, and Russ, as well as filling in simple base needs through trades. I'd also love to further bulk up my Getzlaf PC and add a printing...

Just one for me in the Matt Kemp department. Way back in 2010 I pulled this beaut from my first box of Allen & Ginter.It's still one of my favorite cards. So, I ask you, how many hits of your favorite player have you personally pulled?
