Dave & Adams

I got my D & A order in last week, or was it the week before? I have CRS.. Anyways I ordered a bunch of stuff on Black Friday. Just enough to get the free shipping. What did I get? How about 4 boxes of 2013 Triple Play? No, didn't sway you, shucks. I already shown the Optic cards I pulled from that box. Let's see what else I got. A box of Home Town Heroes, promoting 3 autos in the box.

Only showing the inserts/parallels, etc....Only the Dykstra is definitely in the trade boxes, possibly Herzog gold parallel too.

Ryan, Ripken, and Reggie (black parallel) are keepers. As are the Jeter (Gold parallel) and Ryno.

A pair of Zipcodes.  Gwynn (gold parallel) & Goose are keepers.

State parallels. Probably keep the LaRussa, the others are in the trade boxes.

Two SPs (one a Braves card) and Four autos. Not 3 but 4.

And of course the Chips/discs. 3 of the 4 are keepers, although all 4 should be.

More from D & A another day.

Have a great weekend!

PC guy: Rod Carew

Taking a night off, spending wrapping presents for the coming Holiday.

Relying on the already scanned and already behind again PC binder guys.

These have been sitting in the scanned folder since summer began.

These were all new to the binder.

Since then, I put another 100+ Carew cards in the box to be checked against the list.

Have a good night.  Nice Cloth sticker there in the first scan.

Sure enough, I have a Pearl Harbor set of cards. So what better way to honor the day on a card blog than to show off the cards.

Unfortunately, this is another set that mixes the vertical and horizontal cards and that drives me nuts.
But, it isn't about me, it's about this day. So I find the backs of this set the best way to do that.

Good night.

The End Game and Post #700

Stealing (borrowing) a headline from BWTP recent post about the latest package from JBF.

Not that the last of the Jeters even comes close to that. Just marking the end of something long overdue. These are the last 7 scans from the Jacksonville Jeter pickups.

I didn't even realize I had got a relic card. I don't remember looking at it, let alone scanning it. I'll have to go dig it out.

Yes, I did already scan the Blue Oreo card before. Oops, but at least it looks good sitting next to the Red one.

Ahhhhh. Done. Perfect for post #700. So in the end I managed to beef up the Jeter binder (well once I put them in there). I still have put them in the excel list and then into the book. Many of the 585 cards were inserts so those are a no brainer for the PC, the rest will have to be checked against the set build needs eventually.

Have a fantastic tomorrow!

Home....Home at last.

HUH?  Well, as I mentioned in my last post I was heading to GA, and I made it there just fine, but 2 hours after I got there......Food poisoning set in. Not a good couple days for sure. And today was a scary ride home, but I made it.  So As you can see I didn't finish the Jeters while I was away. So I'll knock them out today and tomorrow.

7 scans left for tomorrow.
