2015 Leaf Heroes of Baseball

Year: 2015
Manufacturer: Leaf
Card Set: Heroes of Baseball
Card Number: 50
Card Type: Base

The lone Rollie card I picked up from my Black Friday haul from COMC.  I've been meaning to add this card to the collection for some time, but I just could see myself overpaying with shipping for this.  So it fits perfectly in my COMC order with free shipping.  Rollie hasn't been getting a lot of love that past few years with only a handful of cards featuring his likeness and most of those have been low numbered autograph cards from Panini.  Not that those can't and haven't been had for a decent price, but it's nice to have a good looking base card.

2005 Playoff Absolute Memorabilia

Year: 2005
Manufacturer: Donruss/Playoff
Set: Absolute Memorabilia
Card Number: 183
Card Type: Base

2005 is one of those years in card collecting that if you were in the Hall of Fame you had a ton of cards issued for you.  Rollie is no exception and he has some really nice cards in the 2005 Playoff Absolute Memorabilia set.  Just the plain old base card.  The card features a cropped Rollie in the middle of a throw.  As a Brewers fan it's always nice to see Rollie featured in his baby blues.
