Wacky Wednesday

At this particular time I am considering making a 4 hour (each way) trek to a card show this Saturday. I know I'm nuts. Nuts enough to probably go, we'll see.

For now, some colorful for you.

Hanger bust

I mentioned a few days ago about a hanger box I picked up with a coupon. I got a $1.50 off of Topps Chrome. Came with 3 regular packs and a pink refractor pack.

2 PC keepers.

3 PC Keepers, and the 4th goes into my "real card" boxes.

Got my Acuna 84'.


My pink pack. I'm on a pink kick. I'm trying to get as many of them as I can these days.

Special post on Thursday. See ya.

My Hall of Fame binder(s)

Way back at the beginning of the year when I posted my collecting goals for this year, I stated that I wanted to get a handle on some of the HOFer's that I didn't have a card of.  There were a lot. I commissioned Gavin with some of them, and I went on the hunt for all I could get. I did get a bunch, but a few weeks ago I still was not where I wanted to be. So, I ordered a couple of sets online (well, Ebay).

Here is one of those sets:

I grabbed up this complete HOF postcard lot of all of the Negro League Players.

Not idealistically sound as they are not regular trading card size, but they will in deed fit in the 4 and probably the 6 pocket pages.

I didn't give up on finding regular sized cards. I bought another set of cards that are regular size and will post them later in the week.

I did BIN on both sets on the same night and this one showed up before I left for Florida, the other came the day I got back.

I keep separate binders for my HOF'ers and include the members as PC people. Notice the female above. I also have a Colgan's chips from Hometown Heroes of her too. I also include the executives, and other members of the HOF.

I will get the other set I bought posted probably tomorrow.

It's my birthday

Happy birthday to me.....Happy birthday to me.... Happy birthday to me. Knowing what I did at the last card show I am going to rationalize it as an early birthday present to myself.

Meanwhile, here are some Miller time birthday cards.

My birth year.

No, Dante's birthday isn't today. Next year, I'll have all of my birthday binder guys scanned up.

Shadow Shots

Weekend round up.

Somebody better catch that Greyhound, he's on the run.

My notes told me what I originally seen in this shadow, but it took me a minute to see it. Movie: SCREAM.

The left side looks like an Ostrich, but the right side looks like a cartoon dinosaur head.

Enjoy the weekend, or what is left of it.

More to say

Okay, I got back the other day, made a quick post last night (late). Before heading south for a few days, I had several posts rather scan files ready to post about. Now, to get you guys a heads up, I brought back apx. 8K cards from the card show I went to Saturday. I won't be showing most of them as they are our everyday set builds variety with say the exception of a thousand, which I will be breaking up into the 3 or 4 categories. That is how many vendors I bought from. I won't be able to show even the highlighted ones that I plan on showing for each vendor in a single post. There will be several posts each for three of the vendors.

Now to get caught up on those files I had ready to go for a couple of weeks.

My 2019 Heritage High numbers. I had also grabbed the Freeman from the base set on my last ComC shipment. So now, I only need the Acuna #500 and the variations.

National baseball card Day Gallery Preview cards. These came in 2 hanger packs I bought which is another backlogged post. 

I still need a couple more Braves stickers from this years set. I picked up several boxes from Walmart when they came out. They came with an instant $1.50 off the box. You just had to rip the plastic to get at it, which I of course did.  Now, the 4 card panel of stickers you see above came from the sticker album itself. Yes, there are cards inside the album. Now, the album is cheap at a $1.99, but when you get a blaster from Target the coupon is for a FREE album. So I grabbed 4 blasters and got 4 free sets of this panel. Which is good, because I needed the Albies sticker #143. I assume (which is scary) that there is still an un-perforated sticker too, in which I will want that one too. Now, I have an intact panel with Albies/Braves and the perforated single, as well as the singles for the other three guys all PC members. leaving me with 2 more intact panels for two of the other guys binders. Target only had the 4 boxes ( I needed 5).

Upcoming posts: Some Hanger pack purchases, some (lots) of relics from earlier in the year Jacksonville card show, which I never posted (that will take several posts by itself), HOF post card post, and a purchase from Larry Fritsch cards (but on Ebay). All of these will be posted in between the two regular themed weekly posts before the newest cards from the recent card show make their debut. Which gives me time to get them sorted, checked, scanned, and put away.

And closing out tonight will be a couple of thank you cards from P-Town Tom of Waiting til Next year.

Tom sent these cards thanking me for the last contest I held. Thank you Tom.

Panini did an excellent job with that autograph on the 2017 Optic card. Logos not needed.

Later Gators!

I'm back

Back in GA. Overall, my trip was alright. Got to spend significant time with one of my daughters even though it ewas just one day, it was all day and night. Good times.

This is us taking a break during our two rounds of putt putt.

I spent the rest of the days back in Ocala (home), but I didn't get too much time with my daughter there. I did get to baby sit  twice. Once for 20 minutes, and the other one was for a few hours.

I started the trip home with a card show before I even went to my house. Lots of stuff to scan up, but I'll get to it eventually.
