Shadow Shots

Yeah getting closer to next Saturday (I'll miss next Saturday's post). Card Show back home and dinner with one of my daughters.

I see a sledge hammer.

A butterfly.

and a Tiger.

Have a great weekend!

Trade post

These cards have been claimed by Dion: trade pending.

Not a trade that recently came in. No not even a trade already made. This is a TUESDAY TRADE proposal.

I have a ton of misc. autograph and relic cards. Many of which are football and basketball. I got rid of the majority of my regular NFL cards (threw them in the trash- burned some too). Don't want anything to do with them. I still haven't done anything with that MASSIVE John Elway collection, but I will one day what matters to me is that I not adding to it.

Moving onto the proposal. I no longer want to KEEP the autos/relics from other sports, just baseball and preferably Braves. So here's the deal. Many of y'all (my southern twang...did you hear it?) love many/all sports. Many like autos, on card and stickers too. Many like relic cards. Why not trade the cards I have and DO NOT want for cards that I DO WANT.

Each Tuesday, at least I'll try. I will put up some cards for trade. What I'm looking for are Braves auto's and relics that I don't have, and if you can't come up with anything there baseball cards will get the job done.

If you see a card or whole post of cards that would make a better home at your place, comment and lmk (or e-mail) what autos/relics you have to offer in trade. Because most of these are "common" and not your super stars the weight will be on your side. I have no problem trading no-bodies (I don't like that term-----but you get my drift) for no-bodies or trading multiples of mine for a lesser return.

I tried this 5-6 years ago and it didn't work out so well. This time I hope will be different being they're all autos/relic cards. REMEMBER I'M TRADING IN YOUR FAVOR!

Here we go with tonight's offering: Football autos.

1st up is a dual auto patch card, serial #d 98/99. National Treasure is a high end set.   Who wants DJ Foster and whatcha got in return?

A whole lot of RC's. I don't follow FB so I have no idea who many of these guys are. But when you buy cards by the box you wind up with stuff you must trade away, so gander away and make some offers.

I have several hundred of these cards that I picked up at the Jax card show last year that haven't made it back home to Ocala. I'll be trading from these first, then I'll grab the FB & BKB auto/relics from the house when I run out of these.

Freaky Friday

No we're not watching a movie. The only freak going on here today is me and my mini collections.
I used to find ANY reason to hang on to a baseball card. Back when I started this blog I wound up having close to a hundred mini collections. I remember back in 2014 and 2015 in an effort to reduce those collections I'd give some of those collections away to commenter's. I remember a few of those like dirty uniforms or whatever I called it. High 5's, pointing up towards the Heavens, bunting, turning two's, and pitchers batting or on the base paths. I can't remember any of the others, but there were several more that was given away back in them thar days.

I still have a ton of MC's. Pretty sure I'm good with the ones I kept. My favorite has and probably will always be Bubble Gum, even though Topps attempt to thwart it (inserts) did turn me a little red in the face. It wasn't my first mini collection. No... my mini's got started from idea I stole from recent return to the blogs blogger Alex Markle. You see Alex had this thang for Dodgers in the background, and boy did I send him a ton. That closely looking over the cards got me started on all of those darn MC's, like My Braves in the Background. Man, that sounds so much better than Dodgers (LOL).

I haven't updated the scan folder with any of the ones I've added in the last 3 1/2 years. But is has been awhile since last showing these off.


Olson, another catcher.


I'm not thinking that catcher is a Brave right now. But at least Beltran is a PC guy.

Now that's a play at the plate.

That is a grimmace on the Braves players face, look close.

This one's a double hit for me cuz Omar is no recorded PC guy too.

Eddie Perez.  Smoltz must have been pitching.

The top card gets to PC guys with McCann and Delgado.

Yes, I see the dupe.

Great shot, which reminds of one of those forgotten MC's,  Superman!  Remember this shot......

Did Chipper get him?

See it... I did, and look another superman.

That McCann on top may have been the "newest" card when I last scanned these.


Back to the story.... Alex is the reason I started checking my cards a bit closer. Yep, even checking birthdays, fronts, and backs.

A littl4e everything going on with these three.

Loaded with star power.


A Little Inter-league action.

Talk about touch up, check out those eyes.

Another dupe in the book.

Sure do get a lot of catchers, and not just behind the plate.

Yep another dupe with the Berryhill, but it does show what I was just saying.

Another catcher on the base paths.

 That will do it until I get the next batch scanned (they are back home). So it will be awhile again. I used to do a Monday Mini theme. So maybe I'll do one of the others (MC) this coming Monday, we'll see.

Have a great night!
