19 Games Is Pretty Damn Good or The Top 5 Alex Gordon Base Cards

Alex Gordon's hitting streak came to an end yesterday at 19 games.  I think that's pretty darn impressive and it was enough to get some Gordon prospectors to get more than a little excited about the possibilities that this might be the real Alex Gordon finally arriving.  Like my Brandon Morrow post last year, it might be now or never to whip those Gordon cards out and show what you've got...

I really enjoy the purple background and really busy design.  I also like the "Professional Baseball Club" banner...if you don't follow American soccer then you might not know that the Kansas City Wizards became something called Sporting Kansas City this season to much sarcastic ridicule...

I've been working on the 2006 Bowman Heritage set for about three years now and it's still one of my favorites.  I really enjoy the pop art style colors used even though the original set was way before pop-art.

This one get a major boost for being one of the few horizontal Allen and Ginter cards.

Take any great card and add "O-Pee-Chee" to it and you've make it something special.  Although the color choice for the name lettering is a little weird on this card.

This would make a great "regular" card but make it a painting and you've got something special.

It's not a base card but it's my favorite Alex Gordon card for obvious reasons...This card is selling for about $16.00 but there are some sellers that are asking crazy prices from Alex's autographed cards.

I'm glad I grabbed that Heritage auto a couple months ago for $7. I love how all his autos are hitting the bay in droves right now... actually can help keep prices manageable! -Andy
