 Getting to the "last" of the Last but not least cards.

I couldn't be more happier to hit the end of these especially before year's end.

I do have two more Franken-Sets, one ready to scan up and the other is still in hibernation for now.

I'm not sure when I will start up the next Franken-Set (Easy as 1-2-3). I have plenty of stuff to get posted over the next couple of weeks. May everyone have a great weekend. Try to stay warm.

Jeremy dropped by

 Last week Jeremy dropped by to do some digging. He did, he also brought me some cards. 

He brought a slew of Chronicles for my set builds.

Cards for my PC and an umpire card.

More for the PC.

He brought some Braves too. Granted I did have the Chrome but not that Pink Murphy.

The two red, white, and blue Prizm were both needs as was the Double Header Maddux. Always fun marking out needs. Thanks Jeremy.... until next time.

Wacky Wednesday

 Shortly after I posted about those 1967 Wacky Packages die-cuts I won an Ebay auction for 6 more. They were punched though, but still. 

They may not seem like much to most folks, but it isn't easy finding vintage Wacky's that I need. So six from 1967 punched or not works for me especially when they were cheap.

Nice as simple tonight. Quick and easy.

Have a great night!

TRADE NIGHT: Washington Nationals

 I certainly hope that everyone enjoyed the holiday. I did. I don't have a lot of Nationals auto/relic cards.

That is what I have scanned. Next week we have the Baltimore Orioles, and double what we have here.

Merry Christmas! My annual post including some cards I haven't shown before.

 Every year on this day I post up a whole bunch of ChristmasY cards. 

But first Happy birthday Jesus! 

Now about the "new" cards....they are not new to me as I have had them for nearly 30 years. I've just never taken the time to scan them before this year or at least I don't think that I have. 

Now Let's start the barrage of cards and other musings. I'll leave this WARNING scantily clad pretty girls scattered throughout but mainly near the end.

A handful of ball players that share this particular day as their birthday. There will be others later.

I can't seem to locate where I placed the binder I started to put cards into, hence the disorganized fashion. I didn't even attempt to complete this set. (update: I found it and the dupes of this set too).

The card backs actually make up a puzzle which I had never put together.... until now.

Yeah, it's a big puzzle 8 cards across and 9 down. Notice anything about the 6 cards that I am missing for set? That is really weird.

This is the wrapper for the 8 card packs that you could by back in 1994. It is called Santa Around the World.  I am missing card #s 11, 15, 35, 39, 59, 63.

Now for another set. 10 cards this time from 1994 NFL and all of the major card companies.

A couple of naughty ones next.

This one belonged up there with the 10 cards NFL set, oops.

Now for some more from Coca-Cola.

I had won these 11 ornaments from this year's Holiday set from Ebay as soon as it was released. I also bought the complete set then too. No ripping wax, so I will have to gather the "VARIATIONS" the HARD way..... buying them, UGH.

I posted a few weeks back about a slew of oversized cards that I picked up at Kyle's shop, but these were bought that same day.

Yes, I intentionally bought the dupes above (last 2 scans). The dupes with the 11 I already had were unintentional. But oh well. I have yet to complete any of the Topps Ornaments from any year or THOSE from Pacific (my favorites). So yeah, another mini collection of mine just for this time of the year. I also collect the Holiday relics. I actually have a needs list under "Set BUILDS" go to Misc. then scroll down to the bottom. My Holiday needs are there including the Variations needed.

Several more birthday persons (there's a lady in the mix).

The Adell is about as Christmasy as you get without it being intentional.


I hope that everyone has a wonderful and blessed Christmas day!
