Chavez Ravining Trade

Today, we have the second of the trades from the tale end of 2014, this a much smaller swap with Chavez Ravining.  USPS ate my tracking code, but he assured me the cards I sent arrived.  So let us have a looksie at what came in return, shall we?

Yelich & Darvish GQ White Frames, Bowman Keenan Allen relic, Future Stars Nomah gold /99..

Yelich & Darvish GQ White Frames, Bowman Keenan Allen relic, Future Stars Nomah gold /99..

Like I said, just a small trade.  Sweet cards though.  I think this Yelich is good enough for my Single page collection of him.  Darvish is a full player collection now, so I just outright needed that one.  The Keenan Allen is meant for someone else, but heck if I can remember who it is at the moment.  Nomar is from the infamous disaster that is the 2007 UD Future Stars.  Shame it was so poorly conceived, because the parallels and inserts & stuff look fantastic.

Guess that’s it for this one.  Thanks for stopping by!

Play on, playa!

Flea Market Finds #4: Third Binder Page

Hello all.  Tis I… back once again with the third of a dozen binder pages full of goodies (and other things) I picked up from the card guy at the flea market over the past weekend.

2008 topps U&H Josh Hamilton, 2003 Josh Hamilton/Carl Crawford, 2010 topps Cole Hamels, 2007 topps Roy Halladay and Travis Hafner Own the Game, 1994 Post Tony Gwynn, 1979 topps '78 Bears Team Leaders x2, 2003 Bowman Franklin Gutierrez prospect

Why Purchased: The beat up Bears Team Leaders, Future Stars Hamilton/Crawford.

Keepers: At least one of the Bears Team Leaders.

Notes: The Hamilton/Crawford is the actual card, not the Yo Momma version, which I also have in original back form.

Also, the reprint is somehow apparently worth more?  Lolwut?

I like the design on the Post Tony Gwynn a lot.  Who says a promotional product tie-in cards can’t look nice?

Mind-Blowing Statistics: The reprint is worth more… Oh wait, I can do better than that.

James Scott’s 759 receiving yards in 1978 is the third highest single season total posted by a Bear in the 1970s.  Only his previous season’s 809, and Dick Gordon’s 1026 in 1970 are better.  On a related note, I’d like to nominate Bobby Douglass as the worst QB in the HISTORY of the NFL.  Ho.  Lee.  CRAP!  How can you be THAT bad and get significant playing time off & on for an entire decade?!  Yeesh… Andre Ware and Ryan Leaf, eat your hearts out.

Until we tweet again…

eBay Winnin’s 2: The Legend of Curly’s Gold

Here’s some more pretty pictures of stuff I won on eBay, and almost all of it is up for trade.

Oh yes, it’s time for trade bait.  A whole mess of Bowman Baseball up for the tradin’.

Game Used Goodies!

Game Used goodies...

Jesus Delgado, Brent Lillibridge, Max Ramirez, Jeff Niemann, Matt LaPorta, Ramiro Pena, Brian Bocock game-used base (#ed to /135-ish, don’t remember for certain off the top of me head), Andrew McCutchen

Contemplating keeping the last two, but make an offer if you want ’em.  I’m willing to deal, for the time being anyway.

Maybin Mania!

Maybin Mania!

Cueto’s going to JD’s Daddy, but the Maybins are available…

Random dudes are random

Longoria RC, Brian Barton, & Melky Cabrera and Scott Van Slyke Gold Parallels

Huzzah!

Bowman Baumgarner & Porcello

I guess I got case break leftovers or something...

A Porcello will also be going to JD’s Daddy, but everything else is available.

Shinies

Shinies

Gallardo is another one going to JD’s Daddy, but the rest are available. Zach Jevne is #ed to /500 and Michael Bourn & Hank Blalock are #ed to… something. /250 maybe?  Cannot remember, don’t have ’em handy to check.

Bowman Autos

Finally, the autos...

I think Pie is with the Orioles now (poor fella), so if there is an O’s fan that wants it, I can give it up.  And the Phillies dude is Jason Knapp.

There ya go.  Aside from the three (Gallardo, Cueto, & one of the Porcellos) going to JD’s Daddy over at JD’s Wild Cardz, all are available until further notice.  Peace.

Does it sound wrong when I say besos?
