Shadow Shots

Another theme that has been resting.

I see a Gator going after a fish that jumped.

Could be a hook, but I really see an upside down reverse negative (lol) question mark.

I see that cartoon blonde girl from the cartoon with the boy genius. I can't think of the name right now, but you know the one.

 This one could be anything, you call it.

Nothing special "in" the shadows, just I like it with the 5 player shadows on one card.

More promos, inserts, and oddities

It has been quite awhile since I last posted from this theme. The "JERSEY NUMBERS" Franken-Set.

Here we have the first 2 pages for jersey Number 18.  For those unfamiliar with this theme: I tried to limit 1 card per team on a page although sometimes  it is not possible. I also tried to limit to different card sets on a page.

At first I thought I had a card fall out of the top middle slot on the back page, but it is clear that I need to slide 3 cards into the page.

Have a great weekend.

John Miller c/o McIntyre

Until further notice I will be here away from my collection, but should be able to get home for a couple of days a month to get to my cards and to get stuff sent out.

Some good stuff

I briefly mentioned some vintage I picked up recently, so my time is tight so let's get to it.

That first Leaders card (top left) is not in the greatest of shape with that crease and all, but these were all needed Braves for the team collection.

That put a huge dent in those needs. I even got a few for the set build which that wantlist is now showing needs, as I only had a dozen Haves listed previously.  You see I grabbed up a bunch, most of what I grabbed was 1964 Topps. Let's look at some more.

I do have a few more to check off the list and scan, but that is another post.

These are just some of the highlights. I probably knocked out half or more of the set with lots of doubles which came in handy for the PCs. One might think that was enough to call it a good day. But, it's not even close.

More Braves.

Nope, these don't do it either.

Mr. Cub wasn't the key for me either.

Kaline Rookie, nice but not it.

A little rough on the top corners, but I now own 1 of the 3 Hank Aaron rookies that I need.
I'm still crying or my pockets are. But this one is mine.

Something to see while I'm away.

I'm in GA right now, and it has been a horrible weekend. Spent the last 2 full days in the ER with my Uncle before they could get him a room/bed upstairs. To make that part short, he seems to be doing better for now.

I really wish that some promi collector would jump at all of these things, still have tons more.

Coors.  Should fit nicely for you folks that like Brewery stuff. Of course you can't drink these.

Vintage new to me

Last Friday i went to the flea market and came home with these new to me vintage for around a dime a piece.

They were sitting in a .50 cent box.

These too.

I hit the 1971 Topps hard.

I had a grabbed a handful of other odd balls and dropped a ten spot for all. Not a bad day.  I only wish that what I spent this day matched the upcoming posts of some vintage greatness I picked up, but alas I am dreaming and you'll see why soon.......
