Better get these posted up, since my ginormo 123 card order got here a few days ago and will be scanned soon. Plus there’s another good-sized order I’ll be having shipped before Christmas! I’ll see about getting the trade bait added onto it’s proper page after I finish (this could mean tomorrow or 2018, I don’t know).
In other news, I have at least three packages going out over the weekend as well, possibly more. Now then, onto the pretty pretty card pictures. Huzzah!
None of these are for trade. The Kenn/Cat is a red parallel #’ed /50, the Fusion is to /150. The 1980-81 style Arenas is part of a booklety-type thing, except his was missing. I have a Chris Paul that’s all together though, so I’ll go into more detail whenever I get CP3 scanned and posted. The COMC pics don’t adequately describe it. Kosuke and Tuffy aren’t too exciting to look at, but I didn’t even know there were stickers like that made in Japan. Finally, Selma Blair completes my PopCardz relic set, but that too is another post for another time.
Only The Sarge is for trade. Ed is my second ’60 high number, which is pretty good considering I’m just barely into double digits overall. I say maybe die-cut on Antoine Walker because the five tiny squares at the bottom and the three near the top are holes that go clear through the card, which is patch card thick. Love that tire swatch; trying to at least one of every single type of relic card in existence. The Vlad is from the golden age of shiny cards. In fact it doesn’t so much shine as glow. It’s a lost art. Topps just doesn’t have it, and every attempt I’ve seen Panini make at shiny is downright atrocious. Papi’s patch really is lame. It’s hard to say for sure that it’s even a patch. Vitters only set me back about $.75, if I recall correctly. And Gale Sayers… well, it’s GALE SAYERS, what more need be said?
All of these are for trade. I think the theme here is underrated. If you keep offering up any of these guys for as little as this, I suppose I will feel compelled to take them every time. There’s just a certain price point for some guys. The Hawks are probably all going to Dayf unless someone else wants to make an offer on them. I’ve got a mess of stuff for him already, so if he doesn’t come over and outright demand them, it’s probably not a big deal. Anyway, have at thee.
Have at these too. They are all for trade, or were. Pettitte was claimed by zee Dimwit, I think Baseball Dad got V-Mart, and I want to say Buchholz was claimed too, but I don’t know for sure. If you claimed it, speak up, otherwise I’m listening to offers again. Cardinals, bleh. But we Cubs fans need to have some around for our Missouriable rivals. It’s a symbiotic thing. Better to send ’em to someone who will inexplicably cherish them than make kindling out of them I guess.
Reyes is bound for Wicked Ortega country, Amar’e was claimed by Plaschke ages ago, but the other four are available. I despise all that the Kardashians stand for, but that Odom is just a good looking card. It’s also hilarious. Listed as a Laker, pictured with the Heat, and the back says the jersey swatch is from his time with the Clippers. I’d like to believe the floor came from his high school, lol. Does Vince Young still have fans or collectors? Do the Colts? Also, there’s the back of the Antoine Walker card. Yup.
That’s it. No more pretty pictures and even more incoherent than usual babble for tonight. Feel free to stake your claim on any of the available cards you like. And as always, thanks for stopping by. 🙂
