2010 Topps Peak Performance Chad Billingsley Auto

First off, I need to mention Chad Billingsley's performance from last night. He had an amazing outing, going seven inning, striking out seven Giants and only walking two. He also took the loss. He can thank the lack of Dodger offense behind him. It's the same story from this team. I know the season is over, but this is the type of play managers and coaches get fired over, unless your name's Joe Torre or Don Mattingly.

Watching Bills and Kershaw pitch back-to-back gems gave me hope for the future. I really can't wait for 2011.

Now for the card. I picked up this 2010 Topps Series 2 Peak Performance Chad Billingsley Autograph card on ebay last week for $1.00. Can't beat that. Chad's my favorite pitcher, so this was a nice pick-up for me.


  1. You kiddin me? 1 buck? That's insane! I bought a Zach Lee for 10! See my blog today :)

  2. Am I jealous? Yes. Yes I am.

    Sick card dude, absolutely sick!

  3. I hope the performances of Kershaw and Billingsley quiet all those people who were yelling for them to be traded so we can get "a big-name" pitcher. Barring injury, both of these guys will be good for a long time.

  4. Greg - thanks.

    Night Owl - Agreed. If these guys could just get some damn run support.

  5. That was pretty beat! He pitched well. I watched some of it. A dollar? You can't beat that with a stick! Did ya get nailed on S&H?

  6. Chad - Never thought I'd hear from you. Actually, I won that 99 cents.

    BTB - I only paid $3.00 for shipping. So in reality, $3.99...still not bad at all.

  7. How in god's name was there only your bid?
