Just cards needing some attention. And a question.

Over the last couple of weeks I had to scan up the cards that came in so I could finish up with the Card Show series, that was exhausting.  Not really, most of those posts were written on the same day, when I laid out the ground work for the HIDDEN contest which was won by Tim B (I love the Smell of Cardboard in the Morning)   aka. WHAT?  lol.  .  Here are some cards that I obtained during that span.

There was something very cheesy about this card! Yellow, note pad, name, and Reds. I actually found a stack of 20ish cards from this set buried in a 2000 count box of junk wax I scooped up for $2.00 I plan to send the set to minus the Pokey (that went into Nicks stack).... What is Nachos name?

I closed out those "team sets" from a SportsLot deal, but the big highlight from those grabs are coming shortly.

Just need the 3 Murphys now.

Closed out, done!

I figured I had better complete the team set or at least start it, seeings that I have the complete set now, and the complete portrait set too.

These closed out the run of 86 Fleer. The team update set anyways. I had already finished the base team set. I finished the full set this past week. Got the mini set last year. I only need 1 more Super Star Sticker #60 Horner to wrap it up completely!

That Sheffield card looks so good. Who can complain about a Chipper DK?

More cards needed for the team sets.

Okay, I already had this card. Why did I get it again?  I was hoping to find that somewhere out there, there was one with the sky blue border like 100% of the rest of the Braves team set. This is the ONLY card with the purple border, and it isn't the last card in the team set, a couple after it, and they came with the Blue. This wasn't his first year nor the last year with the Braves.  this card really bothers me. Why did Donruss do this? 

And now for the HIGHLIGHT of the SportsLot grabs.

80% of the Braves team set, need 2 more. Beautiful cards. Look so much better in hand too.

Brian (HS&CA) sent a PWE and a bubble mailer (showing it all by iteself)

How about some Philadelphia Falcons 1966..................  LOVE it, I had one from this set. turns out Brian would send me a dupe of that one in the mailer, but guess what....... It is needed in the Name Game Binder.....So cool.

The 66 Philadelphia checklist, and a Topps card........BTW, Brain also sent the 66 Phil. RJ in the bubble too.

Why not add a couple of Braves to the PWE with a note saying the bubble mailer was on its way.  Thanks Brian. Working on a "NIFTY" return.

Awhile back reader Jeff Jones another Braves and Falcons Collector who also lived in Kennesaw, but now lives in florida (apx 2.5 hrs from me) commented on one of my posts where I needed the GQ Folty. He sent these.  I sent him a few cards in return. hehe.

Len M.  founder of OCT (old card traders------the old meaning the cards,  lol) asked if I needed the Marquis. I said yes, and here it is.  He wanted that Guidry auto from the splurge.  Like that was ever going to happen, but hey if you don't ask you don't know. He then asked for a Bo Sox auto in return because he didn't have one in his collection. I looked and I didn't either. HMM.  I spoke to my friend Bob (from now on he is friend Bob, the other dealer will be vendor Bob), he came up with a Hillebrand that I sent in return.

Nice vintage Rookie Cup.

This long needed Niekro was sent by fellow OCTer Jim Craig.

Tomorrow is TmT day, and the first cards coming in from that series came from Tom (Angels in Order). The funny thing is that Tom and Bert (Swing & a Pop) both sent cards for the updated post that both got here before the first ones did, crazy P.O.  I forgot to scan those and put them right away into binders.

But, seeings that the first cards came in just the other day, here they are. packaged stamped 
6/14 , took 2 weeks. Thinking positive, they got here and in 1 piece.

Love that Emotion set. That Classic #nno quad, now that I see it, I want 2 more.

Tom went over the card or two per scan, as I had asked.  He claimed 4 scans and that would be 8 cards, he sent these.   I had to wrap up an extra package of goodies for him. Done!

I will show Brian's mailer in another post.   See ya.


  1. Justice and his mustache do look determined.

    Wondering if Folty makes a return to the big club with Williams hurt or if they call up ManBan he's been pitching better in AAA.

    1. One thing I've learned is never attempt to guess what the braves will do next, otherwise they do something crazy like trade away 90% of the team.

  2. The Hrabosky was a neighborhood hit. We all thought we had some rare error card, so it kept trading hands. Never found a blue bordered one.
