There are two things that I can really geek out about; baseball cards and science fiction. You know about my passion for baseball cards, but I've never talked about sci fi on the blog before. I love both Star Wars and Star Trek. I have a couple hundred cards of each from back in the day, nothing special. I don't actively collect anything from either. But I do keep watching. I'm currently working my way through the entire collection of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine on Amazon Prime (for the second time). My favorite series was Star Trek Voyager. Star Trek: Next Generation was pretty good, as was the original series. Enterprise was not so good. I've seen the new incarnations of Star Trek movies, but am not really a fan.
As far as the Star Wars movies, they are all phenomenal. That includes Rogue One. I can't wait for episode eight in December!
If I could choose the best way to blend both of these passions, sci fi and baseball cards, it would be to have a baseball card of my favorite sci fi actor in my favorite team's uniform. Well lo and behold that's exactly what Topps did with the First Pitch series!
There might be a few other Red Sox First Pitch cards I go after, but this will be by far the best! This was #8 on my most wanted list. I picked it up on COMC along with some other cards I hope to share soon.
