Wes"fully" Wednesday

Another week and more to show from Wes.

I did have most of the Braves base cards Wes sent.

But, many did go over to the set builds.

These on the other hand were new to me except the Klesko TSC. Then again, I have a Braves auto binder AND an all inclusive auto binder. Now let's talk that Bragan Braves manager card where he's wearing a Dodgers uniform, never mind let's not.

Instead let's shake out the card back. Texas Rangers?  You'd think being a custom card they at least get either the front or back right.  Oh well, it's new to me.

Now that is vintage!

So are these.  I had to put them in the set build.

This card WAS once vintage, but alas it is now "un-vintage", lol. Still new to me though.

Wes sent several Police cards, this one I needed. Getting close to finishing that team set. I was able to use some of the others for one of my Franken-Sets.

Good place to stop here for the night. I'll be back with more from Wes next week.
Have a great night!

The Other Guy

The other blogger buddy who sent a huge package recently was none other than Brian over at HSCA. I scanned a few.

A gold and a black, both needed Braves.

How about this beaut? No stub, but who cares. This is just my 2nd Braves Rad Man. pafko also figures into the birthday binders, so I still need another one, lol.

Top row, I needed the sparkle/glittery Inciarte, the other two turns out I had them and the Freeman Holiday card, but I still need several Braves from that set.  I needed all of the autos.

I also needed all of these Braves too.  Thanks Brian.

Have a great night folks!

I'm feeling better, no longer "broke down"

I haven't touched my cards in two weeks. I feel pretty good today, whew. I have been sandbagging a couple of trade packages that came in and need to post them, but first is a something I want to know.

I want to know why these backs are different in color. Beckett doesn't show variations so why black and gray with no discernible reason? With that vent off my chest (and all of the phlegm and who knows what) let's breakdown what graced my mailbox from DefGav.

These are the highlights from a package Gavin mailed me which included a couple of customs. Thanks Gavin.

Have a great night!

Wes-fully Wednesday

I've been sick guys. Still sick. Hopefully better soon. We'll see.

I've been meaning to start these Wes posts for awhile now.

Wes dropped a Braves bomb on me. It will take months to show them all.


Some vintage.

Can't ever go wrong with vintage Aaron.

Some newer stuff.

Some minor leaguer's and a great place to stop.  I hope to be back posting regular soon.

Thanks Wes!

Happy 4th!

I haven't posted in a week or so. My uncle has been sick and I've been wiped out. Good news he's getting better. I threw together some cards to honor Independence Day. Most are Flag related and a few are just Patriotic of sorts.

Be safe!

Shadow Shots

Been a while since we've done one these.

I see a cartoon dog, one of those mean junkyard dogs and he's growling.


The Mad bear makes another appearance.

Too lean to be another bear, so how about a sprinter just before the gun starts the race.

Have a great night!

Just when you thought you had everything from 1990

Hmm....1990 and Topps. I thought I had it all, but nope. More in a minute.

I still need addresses for Once a Cub, Wilson, and Matt Pederson.

Back to 1990 Topps. Do you have it all? I thought I did until fellow OCTer Bob D'Angelo sent me this.

The back view.

The first pages inside were Dodgers. They throw some trivia out and then you're supposed to get the correct sticker and place it in the book/album.

Of course I'll show the Braves pages.

There is even trivia for the logos and equipment.

Lots and lots of pages of stickers. As a team collector, this posed a problem.

A nice cheat sheet too.

To remedy the team problem, I took a scrapbook page cutter and cut the stickers down the horizontal lines, then individually as needed. I also grabbed my PC guys too. Many of you team collectors will wind up with "your" stickers eventually.

Have a great weekend!
