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!
2003 topps Ken Griffey Jr., 199x topps Shawn Green RC, Kraft Juan Gonzalez, 2003 topps Chrome Adrian Gonzalez Prospect, 2007 topps Trading Places Marcus Giles, topps Josh Gibson Home Run History, 1992 Pinnacle Chad Curtis Team 2000, topps Joe DiMaggio The Streak, 2009 Upper Deck Prince Fielder
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!
2009-10 topps Deronfractor /500, Marbury gold /2009, UD First Edition Darnell Jackson & Jerryd Bayless RCs, 1994-95 Glenn Robinson RC(!), Press Pass Okafor, early-aughts Chrome KG, gorgeous but laughably easy-to-pull Sebastian Telfair Press Pass insert, and a Travis Outlaw rookie..
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.
Another one of those pretty and shallow Press Pass inserts, Vince Carter in better times, a young Shaq, Boris Diaw rookie, Bernard Robinson, radioactively shiny Stackhouse insert, Amare with radioactive lightning in the background, and a couple more rookies..
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.
Emerald parallel of the first ever Division III player drafted in the first round, the best pure scorer since Allen Iverson, an old-timey looking card of a guy that is the king of old-timey fundamentals, the GoAT, another Celtic for Mr. Travers, more Head (heh), CJ Miles..
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. 😉
