Shadow Shots

Venting first.  The new hire didn't show up today (or call) Day 1. Not how a weekend is supposed to start. But, after the last year I have become accustomed to it. Thank GOD for our other 2 aides. They've been with us 2 1/2 years.

Now on to a few Shadows:

I see Santa Claus.

A camouflaged frog.

I see a dog with a saddle on it.

That's all folks.

More return fire

Chris from OCT (he sent the Hostess last week) sent another PWE. This time with........

a pair of mid high number 72's. #538 and 583.  Seems like there is a whole lot of us trying to build this set (slowly for me) as I need several high numbers but even more mid high numbers.  These 2 came in handy.

A bonus card tonight.

Somehow I missed this autographed card the first time through.

Have a great weekend folks. Behave, eh never mind that.

A Trade Post

This week I pulled a PWE from Bob D (OCT) with the Snider from 2019 Stadium Club. I have a short list of needs. Yesterday, I pulled 10 more PWE's from Bob. Tonight, I'll post the best from each envelope which were marked x/10.


1998 Rookies & Stars SAMPLE. Kerry Wood is a PC guy, so this works.


A Braves card that I didn't know I needed, but I knew that I hadn't seen it before. Love that bent bat.


The third envelope had a pair of these 1993 baseball Card Monthly cut out cards.


This very poorly cut Murphy was the best (or me) in #4.


The 5th had a BCM from 1992.


Another poorly cut 1992 BCM, and......

this poorly cut 1993 BCM.


Collections SAMPLE.   and a really close 2nd place was this Ultra boo boo.

Mark, you will see this one again.


#8 offered up this Teddy ballgame.

#9 offered me nothing, it was all non baseball. Thus, no scan.


The Babe. Ted doesn't look well there.  Most of the cards from the 10 PWE's were from the 1993 Ted Williams set with a good mix of SAMPLES, and BCM cut outs.

Wacky Wednesday

It's been a wacky week. had to let the newest girl go and begin with interviews again. Another new one is supposed to start Saturday, we'll see.

A trip back to NOT this year's Stadium Club. 

Here let me help with that.

Right in the face.

What's next?

Let's check the scan folder. Oh yeah, with tomorrow being the Apollo 11 launch anniversary we can throw out a card in honor of the landing and walking on the moon 4 days later (July 20th).

So, when will we colonize the moon? You tell me.

Shadow Shots

It's Saturday, wake up everybody.

One of the ghosts from the Christina Ricci Casper movie.

One of those snauzer dogs.

I see a girl with a pony tail firing a rifle.

Have a great weekend.

Just 1 card.

Chris from (OCT) sent over 3 more PWE's. Some 2003 Topps Traded set build needs in one, and some 1993 Score in another.

But, this 1976 SSPC (copyright 1975) George Brett was the Key among the 3 envelopes. You see I do have this card already. But it has been on my main website page since I started this blog. I needed to upgrade the one I have in the set build. The only SSPC set build I have.  Finally, six years later it is now removed from the 1 card needs section.  I will place the flawed card in the Brett PC.

See y'all!
