1993 Marvel Masterpieces

Lots of comic book goodness here.

These cards may have been made in 1993, but they sure take me back to my childhood (the 70s) and comic books!

The view of the card backs.

Captain America looks too cool there.

I have lots of different Marvel sets and as time progresses will get to some of the others.

Now who is feeling like reading a comic book?

Silly Saturday

It has been a while since I last posted one from this theme.

Just flat out cool.

I see a slight resemblance.

Probably better suited with the Shadows, but the Wild Thang is sporting a Lucky #7, but why this one made it to the Wacky/Silly pages..... is his glove on the ground looks like a third foot.

Not your everyday baseball card for sure.

Speaks for itself.

Is he blushing or did he forget to use his sunblock?

BB made the file because I really don't recall ever seeing him wearing the Cardinals Red.

Nice throwback, but his face has that weird hue to it.

That's it..I'm done... Throwing in the towel.......for today anyways.

Jax Card Show part 1

Last Saturday I made the nearly 3 hour ride (1 way) to a card show at a dealer's card shop, I know him. He actually opened his 4,000 sq. ft. brick & mortar store earlier this year. BIG store, show wasn't impressive, in fact if it wasn't for (the show from vendors view) would have been a bust. I will break up what I brought home into groups with the Braves being the last in this series.

We'll start off with the "odd's & ends"

A Pair of 69 Deckle Edge.

This is the only Kellogg's I seen, at least it was from the first series.  There may have been more I just couldn't or didn't look through every box.

I actually pulled this beautiful Leaf card out of a quarter box.

Can't see it here, but this is the White border parallel.

In the end this set ran me $4.

This one too.

Actually grabbed almost 3 complete sets of these discs, short maybe 2 on the 3rd set.

Grabbed 2 of these which is perfect for my collecting needs. One to stay as a set and the other to be broken up.

There was only 1 of these update sets, oh well at least it is done.

I did get both NL & the AL boxed sets, but I grabbed a 2nd NL to bust up.

I also grabbed 3 boxed sets of the 1989 Donruss The Rookies. I even opened up 2 of them at the show to make the Jr was in them, and after seeing the first two being there I didn't check the third. Murphy's Law, when I got home  3rd box  no Griffey.

Have a great weekend!

Trade Post

Got a few cards in via the return fire for some cards I SENT BLIND to a few people (would I do that, dang straight I would). It's the best!  They will each need their own post, so I will be rotating them with a card or two I picked up in Jacksonville, FL at a card show.

First, I must apologize for mixing a SUPERTRADERS package of Braves from P-Town in with the Jax Braves before I scanned them. Tom sent about 200 Braves my way, thanks Tom.

Today we have cards from Mark Hoyle. Mark always sends great stuff.

These are from a team set (there are 13 in all). I'm not sure what year they are from so I will need to research them so I can mark them off of my list.

This is the back of the cards.

Love this, can't believe they put that in the commentary.

Uncut Drakes from 1986. I have the Murphy cut, so I guess I'll leave this one as is.

The back view.

Mark also sent another bag of what appears to be a team issued set.

There were a total of 52 cards in this bag. 26 each of what I believe are 2 different sets.

This one has the Braves 84 in the lower right corner. Funny thing is one of the sets (not 84) has 2 different Rick Mahlers' in it and go figure one of them is the exact photo as on the 84 set.


Here we have the Manager card for the 84 set.

My favorite card from the lot.  I grew up going to games a lot and always looked forward to seeing Noc-A-Homa coming out of his teepee and doing his dance. usually after a Home run by Horner, Murphy, or Burroughs. Back in those days I used to keep my track of Braves Home Runs and RBI's in a composition book. Silly I know.   Thanks Mark for the great cards and memories.


Update: While doing a tad of research I ran across 2 blog posts from "The Card Chop"  1 highlighting the 1982 team issue 20 card set, but I have 26 of them so more research I must do cuz' I ain't thankin thisn the set. (Georgia slang). The second post cleared up the first set scanned at the top. 1978 Coca-Cola Braves set, and I am missing Rowland Office.

Funny note I am missing 1 Brave from the 1978 Pepsi set too (Burroughs).



It is a 32 card set: I am missing six: Chambliss, Jorgensen, Appling, Pignatano,  Maxville, and Watson.

3rd UPDATE:  This site helped me with the remaining cards sort of.

1984 Braves 55 card Police Set

It isn't a complete list, but it matches up enough so that I am convinced these cards are from the 55 card Police set of 1984.

I am missing the 'KNOWN' FOLLOWING

#8 Watson, 9 Torre, 10 Chambliss, 11 Jorgensen, 15 Washington, 20 Benedict, 25 Trevino, 27 Perez,
#28 Gerald Perry, 31 Moore, 39 Barker, 45 Bob Gibson, 51 Forster, 55 Appling.

The cards are un-numbered except for on the checklist.

There are 25 others of which I DO HAVE 10 of, just don't know what numbers.

Have these (and the 16 others) T. Aaron, Behenna, T. Boggs, Butler, Linares, Niekro, Owen, Pocoroba,  Runge, Ken Smith.

There are probably 2 checklists, 1 is definitely the Torre, and the cards are not in alphabetical order according to the checklist on Torre's card. So in all I am missing 29 cards  half the set. This should be a fun chase for one of next year's goals (if I can remember).

Wacky Wednesday

ANS part 4, the second half.

Yep, used it.

 Yep, used it especially DM.

 Tried em.

don't like them.

Good but pricey, I'm good with the regular Hersheys bar.

Tried it, rather have Mountain Dew.

Pretty sure I've had one.


Yep, My second wife use to make her own, those were great.

I haven't tried it, but I'm pretty sure I've bought it before.

See ya!
