I was going to do a different set tonight for Monday mini's, but when I went to grab them these just stood right out. Appropriate for Halloween, however this is not a complete set. 1992 Topps Dracula.

The last five cards show what the card backs look like.

Trade Post

First inning of the game is in the books, try to make this quick.

Staying with the Vintage theme, this time these are from a trade with a buddy Bob (the vendor)

Trying to finish up this set build.

A couple of big names there.

And here too! This group probably equals the value of the rest.

New set build for me started with these four.

Enjoy the game.

Vintage Jacksonville

Let's put most of the vintage I picked up at this months' card show in this post.

Yes, I know I grabbed dupes. That Mays/Musial card was probably the most expensive card I picked up that day.

I did not know I had grabbed 3 of the McCoveys though. I now have an extra one, lol.

I did know I grabbed the 3 on the top row, as I needed a total of 4 of those. One for the set build and then one for each of those players as they are all PC guys.

A lot of these are not in the best of condition, but many of them are in dang good shape.

There were other vintage cards too mainly Braves which are in with those which still need to be sorted, checked against the spreadsheet, then scanned. I will clue you in on the majority of what I came home with that day were Derek Jeter cards. Pretty sure there were over 500 of them with the dupes. Those too will have be sorted, checked, and scanned.

Have a great weekend!

I'm back

I have been out of town for a couple of days and didn't get a chance to post while I was away. I need to get some trade stuff scanned too. For now though I have these to show that came in via the trade route.

Nate Mack an OCTer out in Texas fired back at me with some vintage goodness. This Redman is currently the only one in my collection.

This card is dilemma for me. Why? You ask? Simple.... Had to have one for the Team set, another one for the set build, and another one for Spahn binder, but I could easily see putting another copy in the shadows stack. Obviously three shadows here. Makes it cool from that standpoint.

Break them down one at a time.  Interesting shadow to say the least.

In the few years that I've posted the Shadow shots, I've never kept them in a binder. I see one, throw it in a stack let it build up, and when it the stack gets too tall, I scan them. Quite often, I run into a card that has appeared before. This could be resolved by starting a binder and keeping track of what in it.

But, I already "track" so much I don't know....maybe next year.

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.
