Something blew in from the West

Western New York that is. More specifically Watertown.



1991 Baseball Cards Presents cut out.





Zipcode.




Pink.






Greg also sent along some set build needs mainly Upper Deck cards but this Fleer topped the pile.


And the main return was this card.



Metallic snowflake Acuna.


Thanks Greg!

Caught stealing!

Yes, I'm talking about me. You see......Julie over at A Cracked Bat:Baseball cards and a Hotdog was offering up some cards via her pick her pockets theme. I did. Thank you Julie!



The top row of Braves were all NEEDED Braves, and the rest were just gravy. I didn't even know I needed that Jethroe in my Braves team builds. Must have been the Browns uniform that through me off when building that set. I have no idea how any Dodgers collectors' could let that Kershaw just sit there. Like Clayton, the rest of the above are all PC guys. Truth be told I could pick those pockets another 5/6 times and get me some great cards for my PCs.  You should really go check out what is in her pockets.  Julie's Blog




These two I grabbed and turns out I didn't need them, sorry.

R.I.P Kobe!

Tragedy strikes today with the helicopter crash that took the lives of Kobe Bryant and 8 others including his 13 year old daughter.  Rest in Peace all of them.

The LAST of the Last Dealer

Fiest off I'm throwing this post out in the morning as I am on my way home for the night and I'm not taking the laptop. I will back tomorrow night.


One of the dumbest things I've done was decide to build the complete Chronicles runs. Not the parallels (but I'll take them especially when they are this cheap), just the base of each of the sets is my goal on the set builds.  Oh MY! This is a very hard task. I still plan on doing it and I made one heck of a dent in the sets.



The Judge on top is a red parallel.




HUGE dent in the Score set from 2019. What is great about MOST of these sets is that they are short sets, like 30 card sets.











These are Prizm parallels.





These are from the base set.





Spectra is one of those HUGE sets (100 cards). Top 2 are obviously parallels and very shiny/sparkly.











Obsidian is another BIG set.


These 3 are parallels.












Status is a set that I'm not a fan of.





Green parallels.











More green parallels.















The Baez is the Diamond parallel and this is the first one I've seen. Other than is says Diamond on the back it looks just like the Astral (gold) on the front like the cards below.










I had to put Acuna for the last card. That is a TOTAL wrap from the Jacksonville card show.
Even though I felt a little buyerws remorse on the box of cards I bought from this guy, I know that I got a good deal. But.......the test is on you.......DEAL  or NO Deal?



The Last Dealer: post 4

This is the fourth installment of twenty cent cards.





I didn't know there was a blue version of these.




Refractors.




More refractors.




















Parallels.








































Purple and Black look pretty good.




More Silver pack cards.




and more......



and more.




Ending with this card.  Great card!  The next round will be the Chronicles brands/sets that I picked up.
