Theme Week: Better Know a Blogger (William from Foul Bunt)

on January 30th, 2015 by Nachos Grande

Welcome back to another Better Know a Blogger post.  The series is almost over – though there are still a few outstanding questionnaires that people owe me.  Today’s blogger is William who completed the questionnaire back on January 14.  I believe that everyone that completed the questionnaire prior to January 14, 2015 has already had their Better Know a Blogger post published (check my archives).  In case I’m incorrect, please shoot me an email – it’s always possible your email got caught in a spam filter or something.
Now, without any further delay, let’s get to the newest entry in our series!

1. Your name (or alias):  William Regenthal
2. Your blog website:  Foul Bunt
3. What kind of collector do you consider yourself (team collector, player collector, set collector, etc.). Why do you collect that way?

I kind of try to do it all.  I build sets, mainly vintage.  I collect Orioles and I have PCs of Chris Davis, Cal Ripken, Brooks Robinson, Virgil Trucks, Jimmie Foxx and many others.  I also collect memorabilia and am sitting on 108 baseballs signed by Hall of Famers.  I collect this way, because things tend to come in cycles for my collection.  I’ll go through phases throughout the year.  One month, I’ll get an itch to find HOF baseballs, so I’ll put my sets on the back burner.  Then other times, I’ll get an itch to knock numbers off of my set needs and I will spend some time working on those.  I feel like keeping the cycling of phases going, it keeps me from getting burnt out with certain parts of my collection.

4. In your opinion, what could the major card companies (Topps, Panini, etc.) do to make your style of collecting better for you?

I wish it were easier to be a player collector.  It’s kind of hypocritical for me to say, but I’d be alright with less parallels.  If you read my blog regularly, you’ll know that I have said on more than one occasion that I love color parallels. I do.  However, completing a true rainbow of a player is impossible.  You have to have the 1/1 platinum, the printing plate, the blank back (which is a joke in itself), the camo, the pink, the mauve, the razzmatazz… and so on and so forth.  Just slim the parallels down and put that technology to use elsewhere, like creating better auto/relic cards or something.

5. What is your favorite part of your collection?  This could be one specific item, or a binder of cards, etc.

My Hall of Fame baseballs.  I feel like that part of my collection has begun to define me.  I have people who aren’t even collectors who see my ball collection and are amazed.  I’ve also put a lot of work into it, so there’s that factor as well.

6. Most of us have a favorite song that we like for no good reason – heck, it might even be embarrassing.  Do you have a favorite baseball card that might fit that bill?  

Sounds like a guilty pleasure card.  Well, I still have the first relic card I ever pulled.  2005 Donruss Threads Junior Spivey.  Who all remembers that guy?  I’ll never forget him, because the card is a two-piece, three color patch card (so 6 colors in all) and every time I see it in my box, I have to pull it out, and look at it for a while.  It’s a great card from a pretty much forgotten set of a forgotten player.

7. If you were forced to part with your entire collection except for one card, which card would you keep?

My answer to this question popped in my head immediately when I read it.  I’m sure other folks had a tough time answering this, but the one card that popped in my head, ahead of my Clemente rookie, ahead of my Brooks Robinson cards was my 1948 Leaf Virgil Trucks rookie card.  Mr. Trucks meant a lot to me, and I never even met the guy.  The card is beautiful, red and blue.  The red really pops.  His photo on the card is blurry, but it’s still an amazing card from a beautiful set.

8. Many of the blogs (including my own at times) seem to decry Topps’ lack of vision and creativity.  Can you think of something creative that could be done for an upcoming card set?  

I might be one of the few bloggers that is usually optimistic about Topps products.  I usually am one who likes it when Topps shakes things up a bit.  I liked 2007 Topps, with the black borders.  I feel like I’m in the minority with that.  I also like 1990 and 1975, as well.  I get tired of the white borders.  The problem is, you can’t please everyone.  I loved the acetate cards that they played with this year, first as a parallel in Topps Flagship, and then Topps Hi Tek.  I think those would be nice as inserts again.  Let’s do away with the bland inserts and reduce the pack seeding of them, and make it fun to get an insert again.  Make them better quality and harder to find.  Folks might bust more packs that way.

9. What is your profession?  How did you end up there?  If you are in school, what do you plan to major in and/or what job do you hope to get after graduating?  

I’m a licensed geologist.  I’m licensed in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.  I work for an environmental consulting company; we collect soil and ground water samples in relation to leaking underground storage tanks.  It actually is interesting, if you can believe that.  I work for a great company and have good people around me, so that makes it a lot easier.  I am a graduate of UNC-Charlotte, class of 2004.  I started with my current company in 2007.  Before that, I was a customer service manager for a grocery store and had been there 10.5 years.

10. What is your favorite place that you’ve ever visited?  Why?  

Cooperstown!  I have been there twice.  The last trip I took there was 2013 with my son, my brother and my good friend, Drew (and his dad).  That was a great trip.  The memorabilia shops are a collector’s dream.  I love going up there and finding stuff that I can blog about.  I’d live there, if I could.

11. Many of us have favorite foods or customs that are somewhat local to where we live.  Do you have any such things that you particularly love?  A website link to specific products would be spectacular.  

I live in eastern NC.  BBQ is very popular out here, and I love it.  My boss cooks it for work once a year, and it’s better than any restaurant BBQ, in my opinion.

12. Do you have any other hobbies besides card collecting?  

When I was at the grocery store, I collected coins because I was always finding them in the accounting office.  I collected coins before I collected cards (when I was 8), and I still have remnants of that here.  I collect old things that I find while working, mainly old soda bottles.  I’d never go out and buy any, but finding them is a lot of fun.  I also enjoy photography, on a very limited basis.  I also handle my familiy’s history and genealogy.  I just took delivery of three boxes of photos, newspaper clippings, letters and documents that were my grandfather’s.  I have to sort through them and put things together for the rest of the family.

13. Tell me something interesting about yourself (that we haven’t covered in the first twelve questions).

I’m one of 9 kids.  I always get funny looks when I tell people that, but it is something I have always enjoyed.  My boss even remarked one day (when I was complaining about all of the group text messages that my brothers and sisters involve me in) “Man, your family is close.”  Out of the 8 of us that are living, only one other collects cards.  My mom does, too, though, and she is the one who always encouraged me to have a hobby.  She would always surprise me with stuff and I feel like that is something I have carried over to how I do things.  I try to surprise people all of the time (especially kids) with care packages and things like that.  Going back to the large family thing, though, we are all very close, and all very similar, but we are all so very different as well.  They all ask me about my cards and blog, which makes it rewarding that they (seemingly) care.

As always, a big thank you to our latest Better Know a Blogger volunteer!  William had a lot of great answers but I think my favorite was his answer to the final question.  It’s awesome that he’s part of such a large family that is so close knit.  I’m the oldest of four kids in my family (which is less than 50% the size of William’s family) but even I know the value of being close to your siblings.

In fact, my younger brother and I probably talk more about baseball cards (and LEGO) than pretty much anything else – it’s a fun bond to have despite us living very different lives (and in different states).  My youngest brother also likes baseball cards though he rarely reads my blog as far as I know.  Then again, most people barely read my blog ;)

Thanks for participating William – and with that entry we are nearing the end of this long-running theme week.  I still have a few more entries to go before mine – and as I said, once I post my entry the theme will be officially closed.  If you still want in, you better email me in a hurry in order to get the questionnaire!

Blog Kiosk: 1/29/2015 – Dodger Links – Some Odds and Ends

on January 29th, 2015 by Ernest Reyes

Featured above, Kenny Landreaux, Justin Tuner and another volunteer visited the Long Beach Rescue Mission to serve and prepare meals as a part of the Dodgers’ Community Caravan yesterday.  Photo above via Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2015Go here to check out more photos from Jon from the event.

Below are some more links to check out:

  • I had failed to note this down on my calendar until today, so I apologize in advance.  Three Kings players will be signing free autographs later today at the Staples Store in Long Beach from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM.  They are Anze Kopitar, Jake Muzzin and Martin Jones.  Go here for information.
  • Via Harold Uhlman at Think Blue LA, “Major League Scouting Bureau has Dodgers linage.”
  • With the TWC/Dodgers TV deal hanging in the balance, this story by Meg James at the LA Times is important; “Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger is no longer viewed as inevitable.”  It has been widely speculated that if they do not merge then the TWC deal falls apart and forces SportsNetLA into bankruptcy.  I am uncertain as to how they chose to structure everything, but you shouldn’t be too worried about the team if this is the outcome.
  • Via JP Hoornstra at Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, “Dodgers’ Justin Turner aiming for a healthier 2015.”
“I think the key to anything is obviously being on the field and staying healthy,” Turner said. “That was my emphasis this offseason, was to focus on that. Get stronger, get leaner, do some running stuff and prevent any breakdowns.”

JP also notes that thirdbase is where Turner is likely to play more:

“I haven’t talked to Donnie. I don’t know how he’s going to approach it, but I think they’d like to keep Uribe healthy throughout the year,” Turner said. “They might have built-in days off for him but I haven’t talked to Donnie or Wallie (bench coach Tim Wallach).”

    This 1998 Pinnacle Snapshot of Darren Oliver isn’t exactly a card but I count it anyway. Got it signed in person last Saturday at the Rangers 2015 FanFest. It was the second FanFest for me and Spiff Jr.We were running behind and got to the ballpark aro…

    Random Cards From My Collectin #70

    on January 29th, 2015 by capewood

    Card #22932
    2007 Bowman #50 Ryan Howard

    Comments on the card/player: In 2007, Ryan was in the middle of a 4-year stretch when he was one of the most dominant offensive players in the game. Now the Phillies are hoping that some team in the American League will see some value in him as a DH so they can make room for some younger players.
    How/When acquired: Paid $0.30/card in March 2007 for loose packs of Bowman.

    Card #2163
    2002 Topps 206 Team 206 Series 3 #8 Mike Piazza

    Comments on the card/player: 2002 Topps 206 remains one of my favorite sets of that decade.
    How/When acquired: Don’t know.

    Card #41666
    1993 Donruss #547 Brian Harper

    Comments on the card/player: 1993 was a nice year for Donruss. The front photography was good, without a lot of distractions. The cards also featured a large photo on the back, with the same 5-year career stats they always had.
    How/When acquired: Paid $0.04/card for a Fairfield 250-card cube August 2013.

    Card #32780
    1992 Topps Traded #11 Todd Benzinger

    Comments on the card/player: It looks like Todd really got fooled on a pitch.
    How/When acquired: Paid $0.05/card for 100-card Fairfield rack pack repack in May 2012.

    Card #45106
    2014 Topps Opening Day #214 Travis D’Arnaud

    Comments on the card/player: D’Arnaud, the Phillies #1 pick in 2007, was traded to the Blue Jays in 2009 as part of the Roy Halladay deal. Now with the Mets, he had a decent 2014 rookie year.
    How/When acquired: Paid $0.14/card for a blaster of Topps Opening Day in March 2014 at Target.

    Card #8654
    2003 Topps #86 Terry Adams

    Comments on the card/player: I always liked the blue borders of 2003 Topps. I also like the little head shot insert on the front.
    How/When acquired: Paid $0.16/card for a hobby box in 2003.

    Card #15248
    2008 Topps Opening Day #198 Rich Thompson

    Comments on the card/player: The team name placement on 2008 Topps was kind of fun, but the horrible tabs at the top and bottom of the photos pretty near ruined the set.
    How/When acquired: Don’t know.

    Card #39942
    1994 Donruss #362 Jeff Montgomery

    Comments on the card/player: Donruss went full bleed printing in 1994 for the first time. It was also their first use of gold foil.
    How/When acquired: Don’t know.

    Card #47038
    2014 Panini Golden Age #48 Baseball Hall of Fame

    Comments on the card/player: Panini had some disappointments last year (2014 Donruss, anyone?) but Golden Age was a great set. In a ranking of similar sets, I’d rank Golden Age just behind Allen & Ginter and way ahead of Goodwin Champions.
    How/When acquired: Paid $0.44/card for 144-card hobby box of Panini Golden Age on eBay in July 2014.

    Card #46146
    1992 Panini Stickers #244 Charlie Hayes

    Comments on the card/player: From new Panini to old Panini. Back in 1992, I don’t remember these at all. I’m not sure I would have bought any even if I was aware of them.
    How/When acquired: Paid $0.06/card for a 54-card lot of odd Phillies cards on eBay in June 2014.

    Player Profile: Terry Bradshaw

    on January 29th, 2015 by Bo
    I have seven cards of Terry Bradshaw. This one is from 1996 Collector’s Choice.
    Playing career: Outfielder Terry Bradshaw played in 34 games for the Cardinals in 1995 and 1996. He hit .262 with 0 HR and 5 RBI.
    Where he is now: Minor league hitting coordinator for the Kansas City Royals.
    Interesting stories: When Dmitri Young was posing for his 1993 Upper Deck card, he “was trying to look hard instead of smiling”. However, Bradshaw and Keith Jones were making jokes causing him to laugh, and his picture shows Young with a big smile. He refuses to sign that card today.
    My memories: I remember being surprised to see a baseball player having the not-very-common name of a football star.
    Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Terr, ahead of Terry Crews, a former NFL player who later was an actor in movies like Starsky & Hutch, Get Smart and the Expendables trilogy. There are no references to the baseball player in the first page of Google results; all refer to the NFL star.
    Coming up next: The next profile will be Brian Brady.
