A few new ones

 Just a small handful of cards I got yesterday.




I've been working on the set for 20 years. I am now down to just 3 more of the variations.

Bonds #476: 400/400
Arod #479: $1M, 96 Batting leader.




I'll close out with some new Braves. The Longball cards look great. There won't be a Wacky post tomorrow. Next post should be the BINGO checkin on Friday.

How many dingers are they going to hit tonight?

 Dodgers are having a party on my Braves tonight. 11 run 1st inning, and already another dinger in the 2nd. OUCHY!

Wacky Wednesday: 1980 series 3 (partial)

 Going to put up some of the remakes. In 1979 & 1980 Topps produces 4 series 66 stickers each.


This one is from 1980 series 3. I do not have the complete set, but I do have enough to show you tonight.





I am 1 puzzle piece short.

Delayed

 Oh, back on Sept. 3 I placed an order on Sportlots. There were a total of 5 sellers. The largest order ($63.00) was from a seller I buy from all of the time. Always pleased. This go around, that package hadn't showed up after I had received all of the others so I checked mid month. The tracking shows it was delivered on 9/15. Nope, it was not. After my previous experience as you all know I figured I was just out my $63.00. Well, to my surprise it showed up in a 3 Day priority box ship dated 9/8. Problem, it showed up and was actually delivered on Oct. 1st. I am not even going to bother checking to see if they "updated" the tracking # to reflect when it was actually delivered to me. We are talking over 300 cards here, probably closer to 350 of which most were for set builds. I was relieved for sure, and I won't burden you with the set builds, but there were some that were other needs or just wants. I always try to maximize my shipping and with this case it was free shipping.




Why not grab so Dick Perez and Perez Sketch parallels.





Finished off the 2017 Independence Day set.






Gallery of Stars.... 2020 Diamond Kings version and the original 1992 Triple Play versions.




I scooped up these too. My favorite is the Green Linen parallel Nixon.


Have fun folks. Probably not going to post tomorrow.

ComC: The Final Edition

 

Getting the sad news out of the way first. RIP Eddie Van Halen.


This is the last of the nearly yearlong wait to get my ComC order. And just might be the last ComC order period. Obvious reasons that really existed way before Covid.



Way back in the beginning of the year January and February, I started adding some toughies for my Braves team sets. Super stars, Stars, and high numbers.




Yes, I doubled up on the Aaron as I needed 3 in total. Done.









I still need several Aaron's, but I am a heck of a lot closer to having the vintage Braves team sets done. Well...as far as Topps goes.


Be safe, and have some fun. Braves win.....Braves win... Braves win. :)
