Tigers Card Tuesday/ 2013 Bowamn Chrome Harold Castro Auto

Hey, its another Tigers Card Tuesday, a look into the small, but much loved vault of Tigers baseball cards that I've accumulated over the past 50+ years.

Before I get to today's card, a reminder that October is here, and our friend CUTCH has officially kicked off his Annual Save Second Base contest.

Make sure to head over and support CUTCH in this very important cause.

Harold Castro most certainly wasn't on most Tigers fans radar at the start of the 2019 season, myself included.

The 25 year old Venezuelan certainly made us take notice, batting .291 in 97 games this year.

I suppose Castro will be a valuable player next year, as he played every position except catcher, posting a pretty good .990 fielding percentage in the outfield.

Some time ago, probably in a blog contest, I was sent this card, and promptly put it away, not knowing who Harold Castro was.

This card definitely hit my eye this morning as I was looking for today's entry.

It's amazing the cards you come across when your going through your stuff, and there's more cards that I have in boxes and albums that have been in storage the past 10 months that I continue to go through.

Have a great day, and, as always,  thanks for taking time out of your day to read my blog.

Play Ball! ⚾️💗💙


  1. Hes had a good start to his career. Jayne Mansfield sure is alluring. I was trying to figure out a way to get a more vintage actress in this month's activities. I think I came up with one.

      There were some beautiful women back in the day!

  2. The Mansfield/Loren photo is a classic.
