The Clean-Up

 


-  Volunteered for the Komen More Than Pink Walk.  Other than getting up at 4:30, it wasn't very strenuous.   

-  Won the suicide contest on an Eagles fan site.  

-  My reading has really taken a hit now that I'm not hanging out at the coffee place.  But I worked my way through Bangkok 8, by John Burdett.  Murder investigation told from the perspective of a Thai cop.  Now I'm reading Wicked - the Wizard of Oz spin-off.       

-  I've updated my Want List tabs.

-  No longer reading comments made after the deadline.  It's set at 3 days, so that should be plenty of time. 

-  No cards today, but here's this:

Another Blogger Trade

Portrait of an Artist - David Hockney

So I traded a few cards to Jay a while back, and he sent me a large quantity of Giants cards.  I was hoping for some team page help, as my Giants page was oddly weak.  I got 4 cards for the team page plus plenty of bonus content.

He re-posted his offer recently, and I chose the Rangers.  Less slots to fill in the team page, and I sent him a bit less.  But he still sent me a lot, so let's see how I did.  






And some Jeff Russells, a few more Will Clarks, a couple Nolan Ryans and Ruben Sierras.  A Cole Hamels, a Tom Henke, and a Julio Franco.  So a good batch.  The Juan Gone is an upgrade over the Juan Gone I had in the team page.  The Al Oliver is a place holder, as his Rangers stint was short but productive.

Small TCDB Trade

 

The Human Condition - Rene Magritte

Sent two football cards (plus two throw-ins for protection) to Florida and Tim sent me three cards I like more:





 







-  Legend who had his career diminished by injury.

-  Second best goalie of all-time.

-  Not his rookie card, but I needed a Chipper for my Braves page.

A Couple Blogger Trades

 


First up, is another Time Travel trade with Matt.  I sent him some cards.  He sent me this pair of  shortstop cards. 



The other one was with Jay.  I sent him some cards on his Want List and he sent me a plethora of Giants cards.






A lot of Sandoval, Will Clark, and Brandon Belt.  A few different Joey Bart RCs.  Greg Minton, Atlee Hammaker, and Kevin Mitchell.  Bud Black and Bob Brenly as players.    A couple Berman guys:  John Count of Montefusco and Kirt What Is that Manwaring.  So a good haul.

Three Boxes from Home

 


Okay. So the three boxes my mother brought down.  Mostly OPE because that's when I was collecting.  

BOX ONE

1989 Star Baseball

This was a prospects set, so most of the cards are of minor leaguers.  In fact, all the cards in this batch are minor leaguers.  Not sure if I never got any major leaguers or if I put them in a different box.  Anyway, it seems to be the first year of this product and the collation is worse than horrible.  Dupes out the wazoo.  So if you want some from this set, you can have 'em for cheap.  Looks like a 200-card set, and I have 54 of them.                  


BOX TWO

Mixed: football, baseball, basketball, hockey.





BOX THREE

Hockey
