Something else

Now that I've got the 10 cent Braves out of the way. These next few cost me me just a little bit more.

These aren't Braves, but that is A-Okay when you pay .16 cents each. Bonus....I needed all three too.

All team set needs. These beautiful 1955 Bowman cards cost me $5.00. More on 55 Bowman in later post.

A 1954 Bowman that set me back $1.25.  I'll have more on 54' Bowman too in another post.

A 1959 Topps need.

And for some reason I didn't even have this Braves card on my want/have lists. I no longer need to worry about that because Mr. Smalley Sr. is now in my possession. This one was .16  cents too.

Have a great night folks!

Dime Braves

When I was a kid pay phones cost a dime. I remember when they went to a quarter, and then to a quarter plus a dime. Well, those days are long gone. Fortunately, we can still find dime boxes, and fortunately for me with Braves in them.

That Smoltz Leaf top right corner is a black parallel.

I definitely found some gold in them thar boxes.

I did get some other "stuff" from the show, but saving those for other posts.

One of those Smoltz' are the gold version. It's hard to tell in the scan.

All in all I pulled 136 Braves needs from the box. I also grabbed another 23 Braves I needed for the set builds.  I enjoyed the card show, but enjoyed dinner with my daughter Hunter more. It was her birthday dinner as today she turned  the big 20.

Trade Tuesday

Here are this weeks nominees.

HIT aren't liked by many, so let's put these ALL together.

Is your favorite college here?   And a closer look.

I'm not a fan of sticker autos, then again who is?

10 cent additions

I made it back home Saturday, and went to the card show then took my daughter for dinner. Great day even if I hadn't bought any cards. Which I did. We'll start with the dime additions. We might make it through them tonight.

Maybe I should have stated that these are all Braves team set needs. Yes needed everyone of these.

Dime inserts, got to love it.

So many needs were met. All of these actually came from my vendor friend from Jacksonville who just so happened to be set up at this show.

Well, that wraps up the inserts.

Now on to the base and parallel cards. The two cards showing backs are so you can see the so called white backs.

Blue and golds.

I had forgotten that 2003 Stadium Club had a retail and hobby version of a ton of players. The Adam LaRoche is an example of this. Don't ask which is which...... I have no clue.

Well this is the stopping point for tonight. I'll finish the dime additions on Wednesday.

Have a great night!

What I got

I made a trade with Dion last week for some NFL autos. This is what I got in return.

Braves autos are better than any NFL auto for sure (as far as I am concerned).

Got these too.

Dion and I have made another trade this week too, looks like a regular thing for awhile. Thanks Dion!

Did he do that?

Shane of Shoebox Legends fame had won a contest prize from me awhile back. Shane felt the need to reciprocate. That bubble mailer came in today (thanks Shane). He didn't have to do that, but I won't say no to free cards, well most of the time anyways.

Shane included a note that said he'd hope I need 1 or 2. Well Shane, I needed all of these, and.....

this chrome Heritage, and......

this pair of red Classic Braves favorites.

and tjis one,

and these two, but the highlight of the package is this one...

Talmk about NM too.  SWEET buyback, thanks again Shane.

Have a great night!

Wacky Wednesday

Here are a few more interesting cards, at least to me.

This card is just fantastic. It looks so cool.

Look guys, I got my jersey dirty, see?

Love these BASEBALL cards with footballs on them. I keep them with some others that have surfboards and the like.

See ya!

Monday Minis

Mini Collection that is. Tonight will be running with a few scans from the "SIGNING"
I have 3.5 years WORTH sitting in stacks back home that need to sorted and scanned to update this file. Actually all of my MC's.  One of these days.

My mini collections have several NFL cards in them, which I will not be removing except for the autos and relic cards.   Emmit played for my Gators so he definitely gets a pass.

A couple of horizontal  signers.

Backs of cards too.

The next 4 cards???????

I have absolutely no idea how these cards wound up in that folder, or why I even scanned them to begin with. Then still cropped them too and I didn't catch it. I'm losing it, wait I must have already lost it because I scanned these several years ago.

Have  a great night!
