RIP Ryan

 Hello everyone, I'm posting here in one of my infrequent times. I'm kept pretty busy with the cat rescue my wife and I run. I'm still buying and selling on a smaller scale.By the end of the day, I just want to relax and chill out. That's when I start checking out some of my favourite blogs. I don't leave a lot of comments but just enjoy keeping up with things. In late September, Chris of Nacho Grande: A Baseball Card Blog shared some sad news. Ryan R (roddster" in blog comments) passed away. You can read about his work and relationship with Chris in the above link. I had been a recipient in the past of some of Ryan's custom A & G minis. To honour his memory, Chris was sending out some of the cards to commenters. I just love the look and feel of them and wished to dd a few more to my collection.

And here they are in all their glory. Mostly baseball, but a superhero and golfer thrown into the mix. And I received one of the variant backs. I don't know if Chris did this on purpose or not, but it was a Blue Jays Jose Bautista 8/25 Bazooka back. (Jays are my team.) Thanks Chris for these and remembering Ryan at the same time. 


  1. I never had any contact with him, but it sounds like he'll be fondly remembered by many.

  2. I did not hear about this before. Too bad the only comments on this blog are from bloggers.

  3. This is an okay blog. Too bad though that the National Hockey League has to have the majority of their teams in North America instead of in Canada since ice hockey is Canada's national pastime. That is what they got wrong when they created the National Hockey League, and the devils and Belial wanted them to do that.
