Time Traveling


Only two this month.

-  One of the best defensive shortstops ever.  Obviously.  

-  Led the NFL in receiving yards in 1976.

Unfortunately, the Carr is damaged; probably happened when I was opening the package.  So it will be headed to the Bay Area.

Scoring from My Dealer


-  A trio of vintage singles for my team pages.

And I bought a pack of 2022 Topps baseball series 2. 

-  Yeah, if these are the guys I'm showing, it was not a good pack.

The Clean-Up


-  Followed somebody then had to unfollow him a couple weeks later because he's a group breaker. 

-  Did some volunteering for the March of Dimes.

-  Decided to expand my frankensets.  So more binder cards and less box cards.  

-  The madre's coming down in July.  Always a mystery what she brings cards-wise, but hopefully she'll get them all down here before one of us dies. 

-  Got home the other day and cops were talking to a neighbor in the hall.  

-  My House district was the only one in the state to get eliminated.  Ha.  It just means I'll have to put up with a different Democrat though.

-  The squirrels are out of control. 

-  A young lady broke the glass on the fire extinguisher next to my door so she could use it to break my next-door neighbor's door down, because according to her she lives there but she lost her key.

-  Another trade flurry on TCDB:

Sent deadhead11 6 Saints cards and got 6 early 1990s football cards in return:


Sent 27 cards to cory79 and got 9 better ones in return.

Sent buck1buck 5 football RCs and a baseball RC.  Got 7 football cards and a basketball card in return.
