More of a TEASER than anything.

Lets see, where to begin....

Originally I was going to hold a contest to give away this puzzle that came with those Senior baseball cards Greg the Night Owl showed off yesterday. I was going to give it to the first to correctly guess who these guys are. Now I am not going to do that. Greg liked the set so well I am just going to tease him with this  (until I eventually send it to him).

Have a great night.

My first Franken-Set was built from "extra" Braves or dupes if you will. It didn't take too long to hit a brick wall with missing card numbers. I still need a lot of numbers, and that isn't counting the ones that there is JUST no Braves card with that number. Anyways, I moved on to the next Franken-Set which was my Jersey Numbers. That one is interesting, but very demanding and takes up and heck of a lot of binders. I started that one by showing the first 2 pages of each jersey number, but that part got boring. So as was progressing through the numbers I started stacks for 5 more Franken-Sets that one day (one year) I will start showing them just not this one, lol.

The Braves Franken-Set newest additions: 11 cards from this order.

#'s: 485, 494, 667, 719, 820, 828.  (2 PC guys there too)

#'s 850, 895, 909, 916, 972. (2 more PC guys).

It feels good to be able to add to this set, I kind of forgot about it, so it's my fault. Total adds so far this year 14.

Have a great night.

Cardbarrel order

Just Commons changed their site and it's pretty much the same except for loading faster which is a good thing.

Tonight is just the Braves. I did get 96 cards but most were for set builds.

I hit up Gallery needs pretty good.

The Maddux is a great card, now I need 2 more. One for the PC, and one for the signing mini collection.

See there's the back of that 99' Maddux.

Some Chrome needs.

I also grabbed a handful of Braves needed for my "ORIGINAL" Franken-Set. More on those tomorrow.

A couple of trades

I received a couple of packages recently. let's take a peek at some highlights.

Adam (Arpsmith) sent along these 2018 Braves. I needed that top row of inserts. Love it. Inserts are always the last to get, and I'm not sure if I've ever got them all for any given year and set. Maybe this year will be different.

I always grab my base cards from CardBarrel (aka: Just Commons) right from the get go. So I had the base, many times over. Befoer my JC order came in I went to the Jax card show and loaded up on 2018's, and got the team there too.  I'll show the non 2018 pick ups from that JC order tomorrow.

Brian (HSCA) sent along a care package.

The Matt Young was a set killer for me, very cool!  The Alexander Cartwright is my first card of him (HOF). I may have to add a parking pass for every year to my want lists.  And a Murp autograph. I have a personalized 8x10, but I didn't have a card.

Another Braves auto (Rio Ruiz).

Thanks guys.

Wacky Wednesday

Hump day. Knocking it down with some 1993 Stadium Club.

Cool enough for me.

Looks like he's taking a dump.

The backs often have great off shots.

See what I mean.

I don't know if it is the blurr of the bat, or shirt shape (near the bat), or the fact I have no idea where the ball is but either way this card makes the Wacky file.

Have a great night!

Presidents Day

I know that the official President's Day is one week away. But, I am doing this one, lol. After all, it is a former President's birthday.

First let me say, that I have a whole lot more cards of Presidents sitting in those mini collection stacks that I have no idea of when I will get to for updating this file. Secondly, the cards below are in random order. My OCD so wants to make them in the correct order, but hey I've got plenty of other card related things to do too.

Last but not least, Happy birthday Mr. Lincoln (posthumously)!  I do not have a card scanned but I do have one.

Well, the first one is in order.

Here is #3.














Probably my favorite Presidential baseball card.

Have a great night.
