Howdy ya'll. It's been awhile since I last posted cards. With the work load now down to a slow simmer, my mom should be coming home from the hospital today, and the first wave of the card dump completed I just might be able to write something or at least show off some great cards. Saturday i was able to run over to my house and found these beauties waiting for me in the mailbox.
1972 Kellogg's came courtesy of David Ballew from the OCT trading group I belong to. They aren't Braves, but so what! Love em' .
1967 Planet of the Apes, again not Braves, but I do collect these vintage cards. Jim Craig from OCT send this one.
Fellow OCTer Kevin Martens send these two 2014 parallels from my want list. (BTW, I should have most of the WANTED/NEEDED series 2 base cards in the mailbox in the next day or so.
This next "group" comes courtesy of sister blogger Julie from the "A Cracked Bat"
One word, SWEET!
Love the Red,White, and Blue design of this set so much that it was the inspiration for the mini collection.
Like the base set this design fits nicely into the red,white, and blue mini collection as well. I will be looking to get this complete insert set in addition to doubles/triples of the Braves and any potential HOFers.
Plus, I am sure these inserts will fit nicely into Dimebox Nicks mini collection too!
If I stopped here, I feel like I showed some pretty cool cards, but Julie didn't stop so neither will I.
And yet Julie packed even more.
A very nice Bronze Diamond Sparkle. And that Pinnacle completed the team set.
An awesome Gold version from Archives of the Braves closer Kimbrel. With the loss of some of our best players recently, thank goodness this guy is locked in for awhile.
I've got to put this on record, that Smoltz is about as good as it gets. I want two more of those cards for sure.
Thanks Julie for the awesome cards, it is very obvious that you took the time to sprawl over my want list. I appreciate each and everyone of these chunks of cardboard.
I would have to say Saturday's mail run was a good one, would you agree?
