Before I begin, I’d like to mention I spent most of the day setting up new pages listing the cards that I have from my various player collections. They aren’t even close to finished yet, but you can see what they look like so far if you’d like. I’ve made one for baseball, basketball, and football, and may do up one for everything else later. Also, after I eat and do up this lil post right chere, I’ll be heading over to my trade bait page to add a little more stuff to it. This blog is finally starting to come together a little bit! Now on with the show!
Why Purchased: Mainly for the not-even-close-to-being-a-rookie-card of Adrian Gonzalez and the Shawn Green rookie which might actually be one. Also the Kraft Juan Gonzalez.
Keepers: Not a darn one of ’em.
Notes: Just three. 1.) I’m finding the Shawn Green picture very odd for some reason. 2.) I cannot figure out the Juan Gonzalez card. 3.) It was nice when endless single-subject sets didn’t consist entirely of Mickey Mantle.
Mind-Blowing Statistic: I have a feeling the Juan Gonzalez card might have something to offer, but I can’t make it work. Sorry.
Now for the basketball grab bag pack thing. 25 cards for $1. Lets see how we did!
Pretty much all downhill after the first couple cards. I’m keeping the Big Dog rookie though. That was a cool surprise, reminded me of better days. And if you didn’t already know, Deron is all mine as well. Starbury is in Offy’s stack unless he doesn’t want him. Pretty much errythang else in the entire pack is up for grabs to whoever wants it.
Bernard Robinson is set aside for quite possibly the only Bobcats collector in existence, Cardboard Collections. Sad the Brian Cook is super damaged, since I have a very minor PC (basically an offshoot of the Deron Williams collection) of Illinois alumni, because why not? Again, stake a claim if you likey anything.
And we’re done here. Guess Head stays with me too. Not as good as the football grab back pack of course, but certainly an interesting selection of cards nonetheless. That’s all for me tonight, gonna eat now.
All I can say about tomorrow’s post, is that will be epically odd. Till then, you’ve been teased. 😉
I’m even disturbed by the Gonzo card. The Juan one that is. I’m not sure if I have that Adrian card. We might need to start building another trade.
Damn that Stack is shiny!
Also, yes the Shawn Green is his RC.
And the Juan, I think, pops out, if it’s a 1994 at least. I had one and sent it to Too Many Grandersons, and he has photo evidence of the popping: http://toomanycg.blogspot.com/2011/04/last-trade-post-of-april-is-spastik.html
The side you show is the back – which is neat because when it slides up the batting record changes.
