God bless America! Land that I love.
I'll cut y'all some slack with the rest of the Flags (you got them 3 weeks ago)
Some birthday guys.
Closing out with the boom booms.
Be safe today and night.
I got a PWE the other day from Bob D, an OCT trading bud. Bob is one of the original members of OldCardTraders. In fact Bob is the All time (trading) points leader. He should be real close to 5000 trades by the end of this year.
Have a great weekend, I hope to hit the Jax card show Saturday, we'll see as my uncle has been up & down lately.
This is the wrap up, the final 28 cards in the base set. Only had 2 people guessed and that was Jeremy and Mark. Jeremy guessed at Braves. I wonder why. Mark guessed at a couple of Super Stars.
I do see a Chipper among these super stars.
Have a great night!
Here we go with cards 37-72.
This is truly a high end set. I do however believe the backgrounds could use a little work. The 2021 release is a whole lot better.
I also think that Marichal could have had better cropping.
Just flat out loaded with super stars.
This cloese out the 2nd round, and tomorrow will finish the set. Hmm, who do you think might be in the final 28? No cheating and checking....... Just guess.
A completed set build is always a good thing. I just complete the 2014 Topps Tribute, well the 100 base cards. I'll highlight them here for a few posts.
There is a good mix of old school HOFers with 2014's current stars and young bucks.
There are parallel of blue, green, gold, red, purple and a framed printing plate set, which I am happy to have sent to me should you have any of those.
These thicker cards are considered high end and are a part of my recent quest to build as many of those sets as I can on the cheap.
My Sport Lots box has a bunch of high end cards sitting in it now. From Triple Threads, Tribute, Museum, and the like. I am real close to completing both the 2003 base and WBC sets. Sure glad to still be able to grab a bunch of these between .18-50. The cost of a box of this stuff today is OUTRAGEOUS. No way would I ever pay that. I also have about a third of the 2022 Tribute set that cost me all of $20.00. Happy about that.
See you in a few days with cards 36-72.
As I mentioned earlier in the week, I got a decent SL order in right after the ComC order came in.
The bulk of the order were set builds that are just everyday additions and thus not scanned. Instead, I scanned the Braves portion needs like the 1991 Fleer Update. Believe it or not I only had one of them prior to this order. Now the team set is complete. The 2002 Fleer Tradition complete that team set too.
Not sure why that HR Challenge Albies was scanned twice. I didn't even realize it until I was typing this post.
Some Blue Velocity and Building Blocks parallels.
Some 2022 parallels.
Have a great weekend!
More O-Pee-Chee from my ComC order.
Yes, I was still picking at the Braves.
Beautiful Braves indeed.
I was very happy to knock those vintage OPC off of the Braves team needs. But, I did grab one more card that certainly was not a Brave.
Yeah, great way to end my ComC order. I have a SportLots order that came in too.
That will be next.
Putting some more from the ComC order that had been building all year long.
I still need one more to complete this short O-Pee-Chee set. I'll get it eventually. On a good note.... next week I will be posting the vintage OPC from this order. They were in fact the highlight of the entire order.
Braves needs that I intentionally didn't show the other day. The Smoltz mini is an OPC mini that was an insert in the flagship Upper Deck set. The AG mini is an AG back. The pair of Acuna's complete that highlight set.
I boo booed with the Chipper Gallery of Heroes (it is backwards). The Aaron in the bottom left is another one of the Fanfest tribute cards (#3).
See ya next week.
This ComC order was started back on January 2nd. Right away I bought three Hostess and they have been sitting in the inventory for the last 5 months. That was a wait that bothered me, but not anymore. By this weekend they will be in their binder.
The 1993 Clemens was the last Hostess needed to complete that little set (27 cards I think).
A few more big names.
Not dupes, these are complete panels. The matching cards above were also on panels that cut out.
