News and Notes and Billy Goats?

Oh my, I hope there are no Billy Goats…

Anyway, I officially added Adrian Beltre and Shin-Soo Choo to my Want List.  I explained about Beltre in the last post, and as for Choo, have you seen him this year?!  Alexei Ramirez is under consideration to officially add as well.  Dunno if Fred Lewis will remain or not.

Should I add the guys I’m not actively collecting that I keep any cards I pull of (Hanley Ramirez, Ken Griffey Jr., Chien-Ming Wang… yeah, seriously reconsidering that last one), to the want list?

Three people have shown interest in the potential box break.  Shane, Thomas, and Baseball Dad would like to play.  Now, we need at least another 9 people to commit (or enough spots to be taken to equal 12 or more) before we can proceed further, however.  Baseball Dad gave me an idea how to divvy up the teams, should it actually get that far, though.  More on that as it develops.

In non-related news I started experimenting with making my own sketch cards.  I don’t have the markers to color most of them though.  If you want a B&W sketch card sent along with your trade, tell me what or who you’d like and I’ll whip one up for ya.  Can be pretty much anything your lil’ heart desires.  Sky’s pretty much the limit.

I’d like to actually be able to make a few bucks off them someday, so uhh… Get ’em while they’re free.

I’m done shamelessly pimpin’ my wares now.  Thank you.

The reason I’ve yet to put up my remaining Yankee Stadium Legacys is because… I don’t know where they are.  I thought I just missed them in the empty SP Blaster Yankee box, but they aren’t there, or in any of the piles and piles of random cards I checked awhile ago.  So yeah… >_>

Next on the agenda is a question for Shane of Shoebox Legends.  Did my end of the trade make it to you yet?  And if so, was it acceptable?  I’m a little worried.

And then a question for Cliff of Capewood’s Collections.  Did you ever come to a conclusion on what, if any, of the Phillies you needed/wanted?  Please shoot me an e-mail and I’ll do my best to get them to you before I run out of moneys this month.

To the ladies of Dinged Corners, I’m still workin’ on the box.  I’m planning to do at least two sides as soon as I finish this post.  Also, I can only fit 176 cards in the box not the 200+ I intended.  Will send the other 30 or so as I normally send out my trades.  I think I’ve managed to get everything you asked for in there, with the possible exception of a couple of minis that are nowhere to be found.  However they’ve been more than replaced with other minis.

I wonder if they’ve ever even been to my blog…

I’m probably forgetting something, but I guess I’m done for now.

See you, Space Cowboy
