Bring it on.

 I still have a ton of cards incoming, but I have a lot here and scanned already too.

These are my 2020 Heritage High number Braves and a Chipper and Acuna. (I couldn't remember if I had posted these and too lazy to go back and check).

I am going to combine several sellers into this post to get some scans knocked out.

Here we have a trio of Nestle cards from 1984 & 87' (the Aaron) who we lost yesterday. The Private Stock are from 2001 and are the Silver retail versions.

The UK Braves, I think I posted them too, but brain is in a major fart right now.

Trying to clear up the scans and I am getting it done.

I'll close this post out with some non Braves cards.  This takes me down to a couple of scans left, 1 from 1 seller and 1 with 2 sellers. 

I am now ready for the bountiful packages headed my way......bring it on. 

On a personal note: I was going home and back (Ocala, FL) today but decided against that until next weekend. I am tired, my uncle woke up last night with chest pain, and next weekend is a daughter's birthday, so I postponed that trip.

This just in. RIP Hank Aaron.

 The greatest Home Run King, may he RIP.

I'll let the papers speak.

Goodbye Hammerin' Hank. RIP

More goodies for me

 Rolling with some more cards from SportLots, but before I do I wanted to say that I got my first dose of vaccine yesterday. I got it here in GA which is supposedly last as far as distribution goes. I signed my uncle up through the health dept here a month ago (still haven't heard from them yet) and yesterday they shut it down period. I am glad I don't trust anyone. 2 Weeks ago I signed my Uncle and myself up at the hospital, and was scheduled for yesterday immediately. Got there early, no waiting was done including the 15 minute watch time before the actual appointment was to be. Sore arm that's it. Now I already know that it is the 2nd dose that typically makes you feel like shit for a day, but I'm okay with that. Feel bad for a matter of hours or so much worse, yeah, I'll take that.

Okay, on to some baseball cards, that is after all why we do this thing. I did say goodies for me, so that means Braves.

See how easy it is to find Braves cards that I need?

Keep in mind that I am a cheapskate, so I really only try to pick out the .18 cards, but do frquently grab .25 and .50 cards too.

I've even been know to pay a buck even two on occasion. (just not often).

I do have an issue that I am just figuring out, with the Bowman Mega box cards, with the Mojo ish appearance. I will proably have to go through my Braves Bowman cards one day and weed out the errors I've made in recent years. But, I'll have to be home on a permanent basis for that.

Here is a bitch for you (lol). Bowman calls that green card Camo, the green parallel that they have are numbered to 99. ??????? That is not camo, I've worn enough of it in my day, (back when camo's were green, now they are brown/beige). 

All of these came from 1 seller.  Still have a couple of dozen or more seller's to get through. Some are in hand already and 20 enroute.

The Last Wacky Wednesday (for Wacky Packages).

 This is the last of the 2020 Topps Wacky packages. Weeks 3 & 4 for December. On a side note, Topps is back at for 2021, although for this year they are doing "monthly sets" 20 cards plus 2/3 of the chase cards ($60.00). I won't be playing their game. My run of Wacky Packages is officially ended with 2020.

With that said, here they are.

Puzzle two.

Checklist and instead of a 4th Guest Artist, a Thank you card.

There you go, it was fun while it lasted.

Green, cool, sample, and shiny.

 I pulled in this 

These three fantastic cards came via Padrographs. Rod had reached out after I had commented, and I totally blew a blank. In the end I remembered and he sent them. The green Braves card was an actual team set need too.  Thanks Rod.

I picked up this Hawaii sample from 2001 off of Sportlots for a $1.49. Sweet. The only diference betwee the "sample promo" and the actual "promo" is the word Hawaii on the front.

And a nice shiny icy Acuna.

 Moving right into the cards from the next seller I got in this week. 

I really like these A & G Chrome cards. Now I have never really got past the 2nd release of A & G and the regular card design, it was old that fast for me. 

Aren't these Braves just beautiful?

On top there are two 2020 Topps mini's, which reminds me of just how pissed off I am at Topps.

They were selling team sets, mini's. I ordered two sets. Regular team sets came in. I notified them, no reply beyond the auto reply. I've since reached out 4 more times (I'll do it again today). I have yet to to get a reply, answer, or refund. Let's just say my patience if 100% gone here.. I want my friggin money or the mini's NOW!   One more thing to to add to the list of things I hate about TOPPS.

Now, The last 3 cards are Super 70's. I grabbed Dusty not knowing he wouldn't be a Braves card. I bought them from this same seller on SportLots (SCastrol). I took a chance at less than a buck. 

Good thing he is a PC guy.
