The Talk Like a Pirate Version of My Last Entry

Note: I be forgettin' 'twas International Speak Like A Pirate Day! Here be t' translated version for ye scurvy seadogs t' understand.

T'is part six o' me attempt t' document me initial booty o' cards ordered from COMC. This batch be havin' four cards o' three ole school Australian players - Mark Hutton, Dave Nilsson an' Glenn Williams.

Mark Hutton pitched 5 seasons in t' Majors between 1993 and 1998. He was totalin' 84 games 'tween t' Yankees, Marlins, Rockies an' Reds. Glenn Williams, well, he be signed as a 16 year ole by t' Braves aft in 1993, but tookst until 2005 before makin' his MLB debut.  His debut be wit' t' Twins. He be managin' 13 games before injury robbed 'im o' t' rest o' his season and future MLB games. T' injury be a shame as Williams debuted quite nicely, hittin' .425. He was being a maker o' history - makin' a hit in every MLB game he played. T' final Aussie he be needin' no introduction - former MLB All Star David Nilsson.

T' Card o' t' Buy™ she be a tough choice. T' Nilsson Startin' Lineup card - a card nigh impossible t' get in Australia in it's day, or perhaps she bein' t' Hutton or Williams Autos? In t' end, it goes t' t' Glenn Williams 1994 Signature Rookies Auto. I b'lieve this may ben t' first ere American baseball card featurin' t' autograph o' an Aussie.
