It's my birthday!

 It's my birthday, and I will cry if I want to. I do want to (more reasons than one), but I will man up if only for this post. Normally I have this day's post predetermined with things that happened on September 16th. It's been a tradition on here since I began. I'd also highlight a few birthday binder guys of mine. I could whip out some of those guys and try to get them scanned. You know the likes of Robin Yount, Tim Raines, and Orel Hershiser. But, I'm not. Everything I want to drop in this post is on the "other" laptop. UGH! I hope to recover all of that data which includes my baseball stuff. Fingers crossed.

So, what will I post up tonight? 

Here are  a few vintages goodies from another of my OCT buds.

Here are a couple more from another OCT bud. This one also included some 1986 Topps Tattoos (of Braves) that I needed.

It was great those 2 packages came on back to back days. What are the odds 53' Bowmans on consecutive days. That felt like my birthday, but that was last week. My birthday is today. A sister sent me an Amazon card (she knows I hate that). Not just Amazon (which I do dislike), but that she is still sending me a gift. I went strait away and ordered up a couple of 100 9-pocket page boxes that arrived today. I did get a Cardbarrel order that I was able to scan so that will be what's on for Friday. Then I have the weekend to work on scanning other stuff if I can. My youngest daughter and my grandson are supposed to be coming up to visit me also. Now that is a birthday present. I will leave it there to keep it positive and will explain later.


  1. Happy birthday John! Hope you have fun with your daughter and grandson this weekend.

  2. Happy Birthday! Those '53 color Bowman's are beauts.

  3. Hippo Birdy Two Ewe. Hope it was a great day.

  4. Happy belated, belated birthday. Sorry so late, it's been a rough 2 days. Not laptop-hassles rough but still rough.
