2015 Oregon Ducks Baseball

Last week while down in Eugene getting the car worked on I headed across the street for a great breakfast. While walking in I spotted this schedule sitting there, and took it when I left.

An odd sized 4X5 in size, and only showing the teams home games. Schedules of various sizes like this one have started popping up at all levels of baseball, and all sports.

These are tough schedules for collectors to add for two reasons. First is most times they are folded to fit into the smaller return envelope. Some collectors use manilla envelopes, and thus are able to get good versions. The second is sometimes they aren't mailed out, and unless there is a local collector to find them they are lost. So if you collect local team schedules, posters, brochures, etc. Stay on the lookout for tough to find stuff like these that can take your collection to the next level.

2007 Texas Collegiate League

Being the only schedule of this type in my collection I thought it would be fun to show off.

For those who aren't familiar with the Texas Collegiate League. The league is one of the many college wood bat leagues that run around the country. These teams consist of either high school players, and/or college players. They play for very little money, but get a chance to showcase their abilities with the wood bat. It's a great way for them to let the scouts see what they can accomplish without the aluminum bat used in college play.

We have a local team, and watch them play quite often. If you are looking for some good baseball these leagues don't disappoint.

Texas Motor Speedway

With the NASCAR race for this weekend ending not long ago. I thought why not show off the business card from Texas Motor Speedway.

2005 Colorado Rockies Magnet

As a fan of the Colorado Rockies I have quite a collection of various Rockies schedules. Not very many of which are magnet schedules. Currently only three have made it into the collection as I've chosen to focus on the pocket sized, and the other tough to find schedules.

Magnets that are shaped like this one are some of my favorites to come across. If they were only easier to either display, or to put in pages odds are I'd pursue more for the collection. Maybe one day I will spend the time to figure out a better way, but until then the collection will remain at three. That is unless another one of more just fall in my lap one day.

2015 Boston Red Sox version 1

With today being opening day in baseball. Why not show off the 2015 Boston Red Sox version 1

The Sox usually put out anywhere from two to four versions of their schedules. Most teams will do various players, and not label their covers. The Red Sox though are one of the few teams that label each version.

Most years one of the versions will feature Big Papi, and odds are 2015 will feature one as well.
