1961 Spook Stories

These cards remind me of my childhood. No I wasn't alive when they were produced, but when I was 9/10 years old I used to watch a show on Saturdays called Creature Feature.

The backs are kind of lame, but hey still vintage and they do remind me of my childhood.

Behave out there!

Eating backwards

Well, more of backwards through time.

1979 Hostess. They are not perfect by any means, but it is better to have them to not have them.

1978 Hostess.  Is anyone thinking about a snack right now?

1977 Hostess.  Perhaps munchies.

1976 Hostess. Grabbed a few of these that were needs.

Bringing up the rear is the 1975 Hostess of which I don't have many.

Now go and get a snack.

Wes"fully" Wednesday

Are you ready for another round of Braves cards from Wes, well you're going to see them eventually. But, first with the run of 2018 cards hitting recently I have to speak up throw my 2 cents in on Stadium Club. Yes still a great looking card. But I must say I'm disappointed with Topps, they took what used to be a high end product and ruined it. Photography is still fantastic, card stock and photo quality sucks. Personally I'd rather have Big League as it seems it is on better stock. The flimsy"ness" of this years TSC may be the last time I build the set and yes I have the complete set this year.

Now for the main event.

 Police cards. One day I hope to complete the Braves run.

More that I needed.

yeah that Chipper was a big NEED for sure. Now just to get 2 more of them.

A couple more very sweet cards.

Some shiny stuff.

AS much as I would like to discontinue doing actually st builds for Bowman. They went crazy with all of the different  sets BBP BCP DP, BP, BDDP etc...I so hated it. Don't get me wrong I'm still not happy with the way they do things now wither, but at least it is easier to know what card is from what set even if they all come in one pack.

Have a great night.

Signing Day

It has been a really long time since I last posted one of these.

Nice HOFer treating a fan.

And another.

A PC (on the sly) guy of mine.

Another PC guy.

A Brave makes the cut.

Have a great night!

Wes"fully" Wednesday

Another week and more to show from Wes.

I did have most of the Braves base cards Wes sent.

But, many did go over to the set builds.

These on the other hand were new to me except the Klesko TSC. Then again, I have a Braves auto binder AND an all inclusive auto binder. Now let's talk that Bragan Braves manager card where he's wearing a Dodgers uniform, never mind let's not.

Instead let's shake out the card back. Texas Rangers?  You'd think being a custom card they at least get either the front or back right.  Oh well, it's new to me.

Now that is vintage!

So are these.  I had to put them in the set build.

This card WAS once vintage, but alas it is now "un-vintage", lol. Still new to me though.

Wes sent several Police cards, this one I needed. Getting close to finishing that team set. I was able to use some of the others for one of my Franken-Sets.

Good place to stop here for the night. I'll be back with more from Wes next week.
Have a great night!

The Other Guy

The other blogger buddy who sent a huge package recently was none other than Brian over at HSCA. I scanned a few.

A gold and a black, both needed Braves.

How about this beaut? No stub, but who cares. This is just my 2nd Braves Rad Man. pafko also figures into the birthday binders, so I still need another one, lol.

Top row, I needed the sparkle/glittery Inciarte, the other two turns out I had them and the Freeman Holiday card, but I still need several Braves from that set.  I needed all of the autos.

I also needed all of these Braves too.  Thanks Brian.

Have a great night folks!

I'm feeling better, no longer "broke down"

I haven't touched my cards in two weeks. I feel pretty good today, whew. I have been sandbagging a couple of trade packages that came in and need to post them, but first is a something I want to know.

I want to know why these backs are different in color. Beckett doesn't show variations so why black and gray with no discernible reason? With that vent off my chest (and all of the phlegm and who knows what) let's breakdown what graced my mailbox from DefGav.

These are the highlights from a package Gavin mailed me which included a couple of customs. Thanks Gavin.

Have a great night!

Wes-fully Wednesday

I've been sick guys. Still sick. Hopefully better soon. We'll see.

I've been meaning to start these Wes posts for awhile now.

Wes dropped a Braves bomb on me. It will take months to show them all.


Some vintage.

Can't ever go wrong with vintage Aaron.

Some newer stuff.

Some minor leaguer's and a great place to stop.  I hope to be back posting regular soon.

Thanks Wes!
