Gleyber's cards don't get a whole lot of respect or value in that matter, despite a kid who has put up decent numbers in his short career so far.
Yes, 2020 was a way down year for him but who didn't have a bit of an off year? Also the injury bug hit him some as well. But, his first two years in the league he put up 24 and 38 home runs respectively and I expect big things in 2021 barring no set backs from injuries or Covid getting in the way of a full season again.
I have collected Gleyber since his rookie year, mainly because he was the one guy I kept pulling so it only made sense.
I don't have an updated number on him yet, but hopefully soon I will have it ready on the blog.
Power Producers with Judge and Torres. Both Players I collect so had to pick which one to give the card to and I chose Torres.
Aficionado from Diamond Kings. I don't care for their base design but these inserts and subsets are sharp.
Me without coffee, me with coffee
Golden Gleyber Of Fire
Power Zone is exactly what Gleyber has.
Only one more player to feature in this short series of mail days from my loaded box of goodies. The final player has the biggest amount of cards in my collection and if that doesn't give it away, it's Ken Griffey Jr. Sorry for the lack of surprise element there.

The Giants season as I am typing this is 1-7 and the ship and chances for playoffs is sailing away. Though, they are not completely out. It really depends on their game vs Washington today. Yes, this is a week in advance.
Despite the Giants seemingly depressing record, it all hasn't been that bad. It appears the Giants have the right coaches in place for the future. The defense this year hasn't been the embarassement it had been the last few years. The Oline is very slowly coming together and it appears give this team a year or two and a new GM they will finally turn things around.
If I was to sum up the season til now I would say heartbreaking. Outside of the loss to the 49ers, the Giants have been in every game and they have come down to the last quarter for most where the Giants either get penalized, turnover or get calls against them as this year the refs have it out for them. Either way, I am feeling good about the future. Just hoping that Daniel Jones can grasp the playbook a little more and stop turning the ball over. TUCK THE BALL IN WHEN A SACK IS COMING AND TAKE THE SACK. Or if you are going to throw it away before you get sacked, THROW THE BALL OUT OF BOUNDS. He has so many similarities to Eli, as that was something he used to do, but the right coach/scheme can get a lot out of Jones if you look at last year.
I still have faith in him.
Since today the Giants face the first place Eagles, a team they should have beaten the first time, I thought I would show off my latest adds in this new segment. This will be a filler segment until new Rodney Hamptons come in.
My first Giants mail day comes from @NCSportcards when he sent me a RAK.
My first Giants cards out of 2020 Absolute.
If you don't see a common trend here I will point it out, I didn't see a single pack of Mosaic whether it was football or basketball. Didn't even see it in Chronicles baseball.
