Shadow Shots

Sorry about missing yesterday's Franken Friday, but stuff happens. Getting today done before something else comes up. Have a great weekend.

I see a mummy.

At first glance, one might say a Lobster. However, the tail isn't right.  So this one is up in the air, but what is interesting is that 2011 Topps commons still carry a .40 BV. Honestly, they were never worth that. Don't get me wrong I like the 2011 set, but .04 would have been more in line, give into inflation and maybe a dime.

 A Salamander.

Someone bowing.

A screwed up looking Jack Rabbit.

A hand held out as if it were waiting for you to put something in it.

Wacky Wednesday

Hump day again. This one just so happens to be my birthday. The last one that I will have in my 40s. Yep, turned 49 today. In honor of that I will show you 49 cards, hehehhee, JUST KIDDING.

But here are a few interesting cards.

He really could bring the heat. Or if you prefer, put out a fire.

Just keeping with the previous card theme.

It isn't everyday you catch a player sucking down some H2O from a water fountain on a piece of cardboard.

And we end with a laugh.

Shadow Shots

Think I am going back to the flea market today and see my buddy Bob. maybe we can start working on trading for that stack I put back last weekend.

It could be a flower bud, but it looks more like cartoon flower singing. LOL, okay i'm sick, I know it.

I have shown this one in the past. A Dragon!

I am surprised that a Super Star (his status when this shot was taken) would have ever let this get by. then again, maybe no one notices things like the cartoon baseball player in his groin.

I don't really see anything in this shadow, it just looks Whacked.

Franken Friday

Numero cinco. I have mentioned this before, that the #5 was the first jersey number that I ever wore. It lasted just one season, then (baseball) #15 was my jersey number until I no longer played the game.

Yes, there are lots of other #5s I could have put on this page.

Have a great weekend!

A not so Minon package from the Card Papoy

I received my first package from Kevin over in France. I do try to limit the International trades due to the NOW overwhelming shipping cost. Earlier this year I was able to slip 2 stuffed long PWEs to Kevin (a few Andruw Jones) for $1.50 each. Not anymore, sheez!  The contest package I sent to Canada was $21.95 in the box I had it in, so I removed the box, brown papered them saved $5.00.

Anyways, Kevin hit back with some return fire. Mainly the really really shiny kind.

All 4 of these 2014 Bowman Chrome Refractors are serial numbered the same. I have no idea why the Freeman shows up/ looks so much darker than the others. Kevin sent a few more from this set too.

2 Blue Refractors, and again Santana shows up so much darker. I would say that a light in the scanner was not working properly, however that Santana was not in the same row vertically or horizontally as the Freeman.  But, hey let's look at more from this set.

A Purple.

Kevin wrapped up the Bowman with these 2 Green refractors.  These are appreciated so much, as one can tell from my want lists the "COLORS" I just don't have much.  Let's look at what else Kevin sent.

A few from 2013 Topps Chrome.

Okay these two may not be shiny like the others, but they were still on my wantlist!  Thanks Kevin for the trade.

I pulled this Orange Brave out of one of my factory sets.

See ya (not really, but you know what I mean) tomorrow.

Wacky Wednesday

Lets have some mid week wackiness.

A little "air guitar"

No words needed.

Woof! Woof!  Come on Benito, throw the ball. You can do it....

Okay we have a helicopter, but wait is that a massive anklet on Deion?

See, he doesn't always use a water gun.

Just an awesome piece of cardboard.

"Is this the way I'm supposed to grip it?"

Finishing up with a Brave loving on his bat.  Take a closer look.
