PINK pink PINK. Plenty of pink tonight. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

 As mentioned last week I will be posting my PINK baseball cards this month. Typically on Mondays, but there may be an extra one in there as I do have a lot of pink baseball cards.

Starting with the oldest pink cards that I have. 1990 Classic Update. It is a 50 card set of which I do NOT have all of them.

I do have most of them though. I need to get the other 12 cards to complete it.

That May looks purple, I "may" have to reconsider that one. I threw in the Glavine base card as it is pretty much pink. Pulled that pink Gunnar Henderson card out of my trade boxes recently. Cool find for sure.

Some guys we may never hear of, but you never know.

The AG Chrome pink cards are really sharp in hand.

Pink Prizm.

Pink Mosaic.

The rest of the cards tonight will be from the Chronicles products.

That is a lot of Pink. What we have for next week will be the Donruss and Optic pink cards. Then the following 2 weeks will cover the Topps Chrome with just a few regular Topps cards. Yeah I have a lot of the Topps Chrome pink cards.

Franken Friday: Triple 5's

 Looking forward to the trip back to Ormond Beach tomorrow. Meanwhile, I have numbers for the triple five's.

I have 90 different cards. Beckett claims there 997 of them, so almost 10%. No team hit double digits for this triple number post. The Twins led the pack with 8 appearances with just the first scan it was obvious they would be contending. One player made four appearances Frank Thomas. No one hit 3 and a few had two.

It was clear the Twins was on the chase. There were 6 teams (technically 7) they tied for 2nd with 5. That is half of the total number of cards tonight.

Next week the triple 6's. I had mentioned maybe combining the cards going forward but it looks like there are plenty enough 6's for their own post. I will squeeze the 8's and 9's in with the 7's.

Have a great weekend.

Last I went to Ormond

 I few ago I went over to Ormond, maybe it it was 2 weeks ago not sure. I am going to go Saturday as there will be a "trade night" along with a bunch of breaks. I've never been to anything like that so I figure it will be fun or at least I hope it is. 

Meanwhile, I do have several scans from my last trip over. 

Grabbed a few Elly's before they go through the roof. Mike Trout relic and a couple of AG framed mini relics. The Sosa looks really cool in hand.

Parallel gets from this years Topps Chrome.... Notice that Pink it was a dupe which works out for the PC. I say this because there is something announced at the end of this post.

Women athletes. A few cute ones too.

A handful of higher products.

Okay first I am ending this post with the "PINK" cards as tomorrow is a Franken post, and then the next post will be in October. October is Breast Cancer awareness month. For years now I have posted my pink card collection. It was always a blast. What I do miss this time of the year is Collecting Cutch's old Ta Ta posts. Everyday of the month he would throw out some awesome Pink cards usually a Cutch or two but a lot of beautiful ladies and a vid or two of bouncing ta ta's. Miss those.  The important part of those posts were that for every comment made he'd donate to the cause. Mighty fine of him for that much effort. He seems to have found a new aspect for his collecting with the comic I believe. I wish him all the best and hope to see more of his posts. 

Now the above pink cards are from the newly released 2023 Topps Chrome and then some minis (numbered to 25). Come Monday I will start posting the rest of my "PINK" cards. I have enough that I could just go every day, but I believe that I'll just do Mondays for the month. If there winds up enough time and available posts I may even scan up the basketball PINK cards which I want nothing to do with. Although I want nothing to do with the NBA I might scan them "for the cause". I'll have another Ormond post highlighting the rest of  what I picked up which includes some Japanese baseball cards. Okay that pretty much explains what is coming next month.

Howz about some HUMP DAY HUMOR?

 Throwing a few more cartoons out there from that book I bought earlier this year.

I wonder how the new shift rules would react to that.

I guess his inner feelings need a hug. Who knows maybe his mama used to give him a hug after he struck out as a little boy.

It's TRADE DAY! Toronto Blue Jays

 The world must have ended yesterday. All right now that has been said here are some relics and autos from north of the border.

I may pull that Yamaguchi out for Fuji.

There you go. Next week the Braves are up with 9 scans.
