Shoutouts #6

Shoutout to the ladies of Dinged Corners.  After getting the box to send your cards in, I’ve decided to make it beautiful.  I’m gonna draw a bunch of cool stuff on it.  Hope you approve.

Shoutout to the one and only Shane Diaz of Shoebox Legends.  The reason I haven’t sent your stuff yet is because… well, I’m broke at the moment.  I have about $5 to my name until tomorrow.  I’ll get it to you shortly though.

And sometime in April, I will get around to properly documenting the awesome lot of cards you sent.  I actually got some of them scanned!  w00t! 🙂

Shoutouts to Peter and Chris (but not Peter Criss, wokka wokka) of Dropped Third Strike and Nachos Grande, respectively.  With the maneuvering I did with Yankee Stadium Legacies, I can move the Reds up to 3rd in the Great Cardening of 2009.  I can’t guarantee anything close to an exact time when I’ll have them posted though.  As for the 8 or so remaining YSLs, they will be up with the rest of the Yankees as soon as I get them posted.

Finally, thanks to Marie from A Cardboard Problem for the linkage that popped normal daily viewer count of like 6-10 when I’m posting regularly, to over 60!  The least read sports card-centric blog going today humbly thanks you.

I recognize that annoyed look on Babe’s face.  At least I can say I give it as much as I get I guess.  Straws are being grasped at.  Anyway…

That’s all for now.  Back to Pokemon!  Seeyas.

Yankees by Friday

It looks like I’m going to be able to trade some of my Phillies after all, so I’m shooting for having the Yankees up by Friday afternoon, at the latest.  I will be including the handful of Yankee Stadium Legacies that weren’t claimed by Marie in a behind the scenes trade.

Watch out for low flying Jeters when The Great Cardening of 2009 rolls on.

The Great Cardening of 2009 #1: Philadelphia Phillies

It’s time for the first team in The Great Cardening of 2009.  Can you feel the excitement?  The losingest team in professional sports history, but the defending World Series champions, the Philadelphia Phillies!!!!!

We’ll divide ’em up by superstars first.  So Ryan Howard, Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley, Cole Hamels, and legends like Mike Schmidt and Steve Carlton will be in their own categories.  Then we’ll do hits and numbered cards.  Then inserts and finally base, by year on each I guess.  To make it easier to tell where one card ends and another begins, I’ll alternate between regular and italic as well.  Sound good?  We’ll see how it turns out. I’m pretty much doing this on the fly tonight since I forgot to set it up last night, so if you have any suggestions to improve things for later teams, please do leave a comment.

Onward!

I’ve read the blues had a print run of only 25 and I did get the same number of them as red parallels that are #’ed /50 (2 of each) in the box I bought last year while getting way more of the higher numbered greens and purples.  I don’t know for sure though.  Not that it matters much, just thought it was worth mentioning.

And we are done!  Hit me up in the comments section if you want some Phillies.

Once the Phils are whittled down by half or more, the Yankee Stadium Legacy cards will be up for the taking, followed by a very ridiculous number of Yankees themselves.
