Let's hope, right?   Adam (Arpsmith) you're up!

Oscar loses the bologna

Corky steals the Mirer.  Oscar time to pick again 2, 6, 9, 15, 16, or 20. Or you can steal anything but the Mirer and Kendrick.


Trade Post

A welcome surprise came in the the mailbox yesterday. A bubble mailer from the Owl.

Greg including a little note saying some stuff I need and probably some I don't. Well, I needed this buyback. Just my second from 2015.

Needed these two as I only had 1 other Brave from this set. Nice bat barrel.

Turns out I needed all of these Braves too. The Cepeda is the A&G back. I didn't even know I needed most of these as I have yet to update those want lists. Well, I just updated these sets.

This is another Brave I didn't know I needed, only because Beckett still lists this as a Reds card. Huh!

Technically I didn't need this one, because it is en-route to me from JC or should be soon that is. But Greg beat em' to the punch.

Big hit to the Braves team sets. Now just need 2 more. One for the set build and one for the Torre PC.

Greg managed to send cards for my PC's too. He also sent 2 1995 Topps Traded for my set builds, needed them too. he sent a handful of 2016 Topps as well, and I needed all but 3 of them too! He also sent the Bunt Programs Niekro which I already had, but who wouldn't like an extra Knucksie?

I say Greg sent the perfect package, vintage needs, new needs, Braves needs, PC needs, and set build needs. Thanks Greg!

My turn

Yes, My turn. By now, y'all should of expected something different, it is me we're talking about right. HA!  JK! It is my turn though to post about 2017 BUNT. BUT FIRST, a contest UPDATE
Some folks think that it is better to go last, I'm not one of those. However, if you are one of those folks, PLEASE don't wait until the 24 hour deadline to default (someone else is gonna do it too, so you won't be last, JUST go ahead and let us know your going to back of the line, that way the game won't take 6 months.  THANKS. We will all appreciate it.

Now some cards.

After reading a post and seeing BUNT for the first time this year, I decided to go find me some.

Besides, I had an itch to rip packs. Nothing at WalMart.  Found 4 boxes on the shelf at Target, and I grabbed 3 of  them.

The are the 3 Braves I pulled from Box 1. Not bad, I was happy.

Box 2: Braves?

Sweet, I was very happy.

Box 3:  Blanked on Braves though. Sort of.....

I did get a dupe, but hey it will go in the set build and I can live with that.

Next up are teh keepers for the PCs.

Box 1.

By now we all know each box has 3 of the coin cards.  BTW, is anyone out there doing this?

Box 2

Yes, 2 Kershaw inserts in one box. Again very happy with box 2.

Box 3:

Now on the the NON-Keeper inserts/parallels.

Box 1.

Box 2:

Nice serial numbered card to #/50.

Box 3:

A PURPLE! These according to the pack are limited to just 1 in 125 packs.

Have fun, don't forget to play the game. I want to see some steals,    (evil grin).
I am heading home (FL) just for tomorrow as my youngest daughter graduates high school. I still update the contest I will just be out of the loop for a few hours.
