A blog about the cards I get awesome deals on, cards that I have available to trade, trades and our hobby in general. I collect Braves cards (all of them) and T206 White Borders. I also collect anything John Elway see my Elway blog for that.
FRED CLARKE: ZERO JOHN CLARKSON: ZERO (SUCKS TOO, CAUSE HE WAS A BRAVE) ROGER CLEMENS: 431 different.
Have 15 scans, but cutting to the new format for these posts. just showing the oldest card for each player (FROM THE NEW ADDITIONS). Of course, that begins with G's.
ROBERTO CLEMENTE: 46 DIFFERENT TY COBB: 49 DIFFERENT MICKEY COCHRANE: 6 DIFFERENT EDDIE COLLINS: ZERO JIMMY COLLINS: ZERO BARTOLO COLON: 50 DIFFERENT EARL COMBS: ZERO CHARLES COMISKEY: ZERO JOCKO CONLAN: ZERO TOM CONNOLLY: ZERO That's it for part 3 of the Cees. Will wrap them up next go. One thing I've noticed and I'm sure you have too is that I certainly have a ton of players in my PC that have ZERO cards. I will have to work on that next year.
We left off with Joe Carter and his laughter. I'll pick up there in a minute. I got caught up in the UPDATE so much that I've redesigned how I have my off-line list as well as how you look on-line at my Player Collections. I hadn't intended on a redesign, but I once I got going I couldn't stop. Now as I progress the update I take care of those others as well. Check them out, it's a lot better now. I'll also be switching up how I post these updates too a little bit, especially once the E's are done.
ALEXANDER CARTWRIGHT: ZERO CARDS RICO CARTY: 15 DIFFERENT ORLANDO CEPEDA: 29 DIFFERENT YOENIS CEPEDES: 36 DIFFERENT HENRY CHADWICK: ZERO CARDS FRANK CHANCE: ZERO CARDS HAPPY CHANDLER: ZERO CARDS AROLDIS CHAPMAN: 24 DIFFERENT OSCAR CHARLESTON: ZERO CARDS JACK CHESBRO: ZERO CARDS NESTOR CHYLAK: ZERO CARDS. That's it for part 2. Sorry for no scans, but in my rushing about (redesigning) I deleted all of the C's except Clemens.
Newest to my collection that is. This really being a Braves blog (sort of), I'm saddened that I haven't posted any new Braves cards in awhile. So here some I ordered from Just Commons, I mean CardBarrel before Christmas, and they showed up today.
2017 Bowman Chrome Draft, still need 4 of them.
I picked up the same base Bowman Draft cards as the Chrome plus the Maitan above. No sense scanning them right now.
My first taste of the Panini Chronicles. I don't like them (just need them). I dislike them so much I didn't even bother to scan the back so y'all could finish reading the card. LOL.
The last time I updated rather attempted to update my PC's was mid 2015. I made it to the E's but only posted the A's and B's. So my scan folder still has those original scans from the C's, and instead of adding hundreds of more scans I will JUST be showing those already in the folder with the occasional single. This should get me to a manageable position.
Without saying anymore.....
There were 3 hundred to scan, so I just did this one, sorry Fuji.
Jose Canseco: 356 different (the player collections link will have the complete list of haves)
Rod Carew: 98 different Max Carey: zero cards Steve Carlton: 106 different Gary Carter: 189 different
Gary Carter: 189 different
These yearbook mini stickers back are all different.
Joe Carter: 247 different
One of the things that I noticed about Joe Carter while I was updating his PC is that his card backs OFTEN have him laughing.
I really believe this man truly enjoyed and loved playing this game.
That is part 1 of the C's. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas/Holiday!
When reviewing my 2017 collecting goals as associated with this blog and my website, I did pretty well. But you can decide for yourself.
1) Try to finish some more sets this year. I did complete 16 sets, so that is definitely worth an A. I did however have hopes of knocking out my 80's & 90's base set builds which didn't happen.
2) Try to add at least 4 T206 cards to the collection. DONE A+.
These are the last 4 that came in.
Different backs on the McIntyre.
Yes, that ONE is a reprint, lol. I have 4-5 more that I got this year that was sent down to Ocala and didn't make it into this binder yet.
3) Try to find a monster deal like I did in 2015. Or at least some super good deals like I did in 2016. I knew this one was going to be tough. I don't really think I stumbled into any super deals. I guess the best deal of 2016 was the almost half set in NM condition 1972 Topps for $40.00. That was a GREAT deal, but not enough to warrant an A, probably a B- at best.
4) Make some headway cleaning up my Braves want lists. A here, not perfect but I can live with it.
5) This one was an easy one, get out those Super Trader packages I had laying around for ever. Done, A+.
There you have it. Successful....yes. Perfect.....no.
My goals for 2018 are shorter and simpler and I'll list them around the new year.
