Just some light reading on my birthday.

On the day I was born the most notable thing that happened was......

·  1966

Okay go ahead and make your guess below for the contest.
What was the total cost of the “Dealer Buy Out”? First to guess it wins a prize. If no one does (which I am expecting) then the closest first.  It’s only numbers throw some in.


  1. FINALLY, I get to win the big prize. And I'll be first to say Happy birthday, unless someone is typing up their comment right now and beats me to the publish button.

    And you cgot a couple fine additions for your binder. I am sure Jennifer Tilly has cards in Americana and that poker set that was released a few years back.

    Cost: $4500.00

  2. Hmm.. I'll take a guess and say 3500.
    oh by the way... Happy Birthday. :D

  3. Happy birthday!

    I think I have a few spare Hershiser cards around. I also have at least one Poehler and Rourke card.

    No idea on the guess: $988.

    1. Poehler and Rourke great, hold off on Orel until I update my current haves.

  4. Happy birthday! You share it with some baseball greats! And just a week away from another great...ME!

    I'm going to go with $500 on the nose.
