Fun Cards: 1938 Goudey “Heads Up” Joey Votto sketch

Joey Votto Heads Up

All-Star voting has begun, and Joey Votto is so far having a season worthy of midsummer glory. So is Adrian Gonzalez, but Joey has the edge in my mind since he plays for Cincinnati. Seven home runs, 16 RBI, .312 batting average…it’s almost like it’s 2010 all over again. Who are you voting for?

Don’t get a big head

The Junior Junkie just posted a 1990 Topps “Heads Up” he received featuring Ken Griffey Jr. I have a few as well, and they’re actually hanging on the wall in my basement…

Topps Heads Up

That is, from left to right, Craig Biggio, Tony Gwynn, John Franco (the only Red in the set), Bo Jackson, and Junior. I also had Dennis Eckersley and Mark McGwire at one point, but they weren’t worthy of inclusion on my Wall of Awesomeness.

This was a neat little set, and I wouldn’t mind picking up a few more for my wall if I found them on the cheap at a card show. Looking at the checklist the Junkie posted, I probably also wanted Gregg Olson and Jerome Walton back in the day. But alas, I never got them.
