I mentioned the other day that I’ve been pondering whether my little cardboard problem is really a “problem”, and that’s spurred me on to some new ideas on not only getting rid of some of my stuff but also organizing to make it easier to get rid of said stuff. Last night I started going through the “chaff” of my collection and putting them into albums based on their team, which will make trading 100% easier.
I also started gathering up my random autos and relics, a lot of which I’ve offered as trade bait. That’s where this post comes in – this is the last call on a lot of this stuff. If you’re interested, let me know, otherwise they’re going up on eBay Sunday night. Here’s what I’m putting up this week:
So if you’re interested either comment or email me at crimnos at gmail dot com. I’ll be listing more in the coming weeks, and I’ll be sure to show them here first. I think it’s time to turn some decent cards that I don’t really care about into some decent cards I care about.
Watched a good portion of the Twins/Yanks game. What a heartbreaker. I really though the Twins were going to pull it out, but you could also see Liriano losing steam as the sixth inning progressed. If that’s the best the Twins can offer, I’m afraid the Yankees are advancing, which sucks. Oh, and congrats to Roy Halladay – not going to write too much about it because I didn’t get to watch it, but that’s damned amazing.
Okay so let’s take a look at what ELSE happened yesterday:
- Community Gum opened a pack of 2002 Topps Total over at A Pack to Be Named Later.
- 1975 Topps (it’s far out man) took a look at Fred Kendall and his massive glasses.
- Pack War opened a blaster box of the lime green variety with Topps 2008.
- I am Joe Collector continues to suffer with his football break. Poor guy.
- Card Buzz featured an NLDS breakdown.
- 1973 Topps Photography featured one card with three great pitchers.
- The Mojo Hand broke a blaster of 2010 Topps Chrome. Getting antsy waiting for our group break…must be patient…
- JD’s Wild Cardz talked about accidental treasure. That’s what a lot of my collection has turned out to be.
- White Sox Card made another birth year custom with Ken Griffey Jr.
- The Great Sports Name Hall of Fame found out that James Shields is apparently pitching game 2 of the ALDS because he’s Jewish (hint: he’s not…just read the article, can’t believe someone said that).
- Speaking of SpastikMooss, he opened a pack of Harley Davidson cards. I…just…what?
- Mario at Wax Heaven said goodbye to the hobby and his blog. Sad moment; he and Night Owl were the first blogs I read when I discovered card blogs.
- Trader Crack’s showed off the worst cut signature ever. No kidding, I laughed out loud when I saw this thing.
- The Phillies Room had a very touching tribute to Roy Halladay’s no-no.
- The Hall of Very Good had a great interview with Jeff Juden.
And that’s all for today! Have a great one.
