Braves traveling across the US

Mark aka Fuji sent out a lot of packages recently, and I was the beneficiary of one of them.


I got my package yesterday, but didn't scan them until today. Karma, fate, or whatever but this flyer for one of the local Japanese steakhouse's was sitting on the counter of a local Chinese restaurant. I took it.

Yep, these 9 were needs. Lot's of shiny refractors here, love that blue mirror Giles.

Needed these 6 too.

These 6 as well.

I needed these 5 too. Mark that's a lot of hits to my needs lists, thanks. And making sure I give credit where credit is due.......Mark is and has been the most frequent commenter on this blog for the last 3 years running and huge thanks for that!

Have a great night!

Shadow Shots

Let's try one of these easy posts. "IT'S YOUR CALL"

This week our shadows will all reign from 1994 Topps.

I'm not sure what I see other than an odd shadow, what do you see?

I see a baby giraffe, what do you see?


A typical shadow for sure, but what do you see?

 I don't know, maybe an old-school playground ride... What do you see?

I see a warped witch's hat, what do you see?

Have a great weekend!

That's the best word I can come up with to describe the last 7 days. One week ago, I was home for my annual VA check up. More on that in a minute. I stayed at home an extra night (man do I miss my bed, my shower, and my home). Anyways, I got bored and still had a little itch that needed scratching as my normal monthly go to card show was backed up a week which was actually perfect for me. I posted those cards last week highlighted with the Ohtani autograph. Well, back to the VA story....while I was there the Dr. said hey you've never had a pneumonia vaccine, I said why not. Damn if I didn't get sick come Wednesday night. Miserable I tell you. I started to feel a little better over the weekend all but the runny nose. So I hit up Wally world here in Valdosta to grab some eggs and fresh (hah) fruit today. Being I was sick I didn't make the drive to Jacksonville so that damn itch was still there. This cost too much money, I need to get to the next card show for sure. Hence, ditto.

This time I caved and grabbed the 20 pack box of Bowman Platinum hoping to get some Braves and hopefully a sweet auto as the box guarantees two. I also grabbed 2 blasters of A&G.  Here are my keepers.

Braves first.

Okay, 3 Braves from each brand, ugh!

Purple numbered Judge.

Here are the two autos:

As pricey as this set is, you'd think Topps would have classed it up with "on card autos".

I guess I forgot to place the Jeter correctly.

And the best base mini. Looks like I got more keepers with the A&G for half the price. And, go figure I got a hit in each box.

Sort of a hit. 

Bam, no double BAM, Another Ohtani autograph and this one framed mini and is numbered 18/25.

Have a great night.
