Sorting Through The Commons: C. J. Wilson

I've written before about the fun in diving head first into boxes of commons to find the treasures hidden inside that weren't really treasures just a little bit ago. I posted about his a few months ago digging out my Ubaldo Jimenez cards that didn't mean much to me at the start of the 2010 season but are now getting their own penny sleeves.

This year's playoffs have offered several players that you might want to dig out of your commons boxes. Matt Cain, Madison Bumgarner, C. J. Wilson to name a few. After sorting through 80's Twins I think I might qualify as a Ron Washington super collector...but that is for another post.

Here are a few C. J. Wilson cards that I have a new found appreciation for.

2003 Topps #313 C. J. Wilson [1st Year Card]

2006 Topps Opening Day #161 C. J. Wilson 1305/2006 [Rookie Card]
