964: Bowman part 2

 Real quick one tonight to wrap up the other half of the Bowman cards picked up in that large SL box order.

It always.....always feels good to mark off old needs for the team sets.

I'm the oddball collector that has never liked Chrome cards. Originally this was because of the curl, never laying flat. Adding to that easily scratched, etc.

Over the years the curl seemed to vanish, but I noticed the last couple of years....that it is back.

We still need to get through the Topps, Donruss, Upper Deck (I think some Fleer) Braves, and finish up with the PC additions to close out the 964.

On a personal note. I contracted an Agency for help with my Uncle. Day 1 was Friday, and problems already. Not with the aide and us, but between the agency and the aide. Sure enough first night they called to switch aides for the next day only, not good but I allowed it, making it clear as I did before this is not going to be acceptable. Saturday came, another brand new aide to the agency (they supposedly hired them on Monday), again no problems with us and the aide, but she was already having problems with the agency. I did nothing, said nothing, and low and behold the agency called early Sunday morning saying the 1st aide wouldn't be in....again... Not a good start, so I have cancelled the contract. Going back to private care, and we'll see how that goes. I have a couple of aides lined up.


  1. That auto up top sure is different, I haven't seen anything that looks like it in quite some time.

  2. Best of luck with finding a quality aide for your uncle.

  3. Sorry to read about your troubles with the agency, hope that gets fixed soon.
