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.  


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.                  


Mixed: football, baseball, basketball, hockey.

The Clean-Up


-  So the madre visited.  We had lunch in the park and went to the art museum.  I gave her a book that had been sitting on my shelf for years.  Seemed interesting , but I never got around to it.  Anyway, she brought 3 more boxes of cards down.  So I'll do a post on those soon. 

-  I scored another free card from the Diamond King.

-  I made a TCDB trade with Tom Brady.  Sent a few baseball cards to Florida and got 3 cards for my team pages in return. 


-  Saw on Twitter that if Tony Gwynn had gone hitless in his last 1,099 ABs he would still have hit .300 for his career.  

-  Tried one of Fuji's apples.  Was not impressed.
