A first ballot entry to the Zero Year Hall of Fame, and the third appearance for Antonio Brown although both others have been bumped.

Hey, I posted something. (Its a trade package)


Summer is a very busy time around here and looking back there were a lot of things I got that I never posted, mostly because I let them pile up to an unmanageable point, then put things away without scanning. So for everyone that sent something that I didn't post, it is always much appreciated and just due to my own negligence. That aside, here is a post. Starting with some sticker from Panini back in the day. I don't usually do stickers, but we have Marty Howe who never got a real Bruins card and a new Neely, so both were wanted.

5 from Sportlots

I don't peruse Sportlots very often, but once in a while, I find something I want to cross off my list bad enough and that is usually where I end up. Sportlots continues to be very good at what they are good at, weird hard to find cards at reason prices, and bad at what (I feel like anyway) they are very bad at. That being filling out a large order, this might be something easier for set collectors, but as a team collector, I struggle. The above Sandy Alomar didn't come with that problem as the shipping rates went from $2.00 for a single to $16 for 2-4. So for $2.75 I picked up a refactor of a Short Term Stop for the catcher binder.

Remember Vincent Riendeau?


He's Back! In Pog form! That's right, my most recent trade bringing in Vinny and his gross Jofa in Pog form. I defy you not to love pogs.

2 Card Mailday (a.k.a. I don't buy new cards anymore)

It wasn't a conscious decision, there was just a general lack of excitement for new releases this year. Eventually these two cards peaked my interest from the online release of Topps T206, both were needed for the One of Every Rockies PC, Elias Diaz is a catcher card, and since Gypsy Queen dumped them I needed to get my mini fix elsewhere. Not a set that features in-game photos, but I like these cards anyway. Entering them into the collection I wondered how many other 2021 cards I had. The answer...

Blogger Reading List broken?

EDIT 8/3/2021: Seems to be working now, hope it stays.

 My reading list now only shows this, can I fix this, is there another way to do this? WTF?

RLC Custom Card Project: Darren Bragg

Darren Bragg was more or less the typical journey-man outfielder, playing on 9 teams over 11 seasons from 1994-2004. The best years of his career came in Boston, setting career highs in pretty much everything between 1997 and 1998. He signed with the Rockies in February of 2000 and played in 71 games before being granted Free Agency in July of that year. From there he bounced to the Mets, Yankees, Braves, Padres and finally Reds.

The Card: Started with the Panini flagship design from 2019 Chronicles football, and morphed a little bit, the feathered edges almost give it a high-end product kind of feel.

Football Frankenset - July 2021

Trevor Story didn't win the Home Run thingy, so here is a Frankenset Post

009 -  1995 Stadium Club - George Koonce
I love Linebacker ready to strike pre-snap pics, I also love these gross Green Bay throwbacks. While I am loving things, I love that this completes the first page in the binder of the physical Frankenset.

Devilishly Good Trade

A TCDB trade with the prolific trader DukeyDevil, starting off with the elephant in the card room that has been ignored until now. Washington Redskins Football Team cards. Do these go in the Redskins binder? Kerrigan is already in there, but Davis never was a Redskin. For now these are probably going to end up penny sleeved in the Redskins keeper box, but as time goes on, I will have to figure something out.

Comc Order: The Rest


Most of the rest of the COMC order, I managed to squeeze one more upcoming post out of the this, starting with the last two standard Redskins cards I needed of Brad Edwards, just a McDonalds Gameday, Police issue and a couple parallels from 1997 Pacific with the Falcons. These two were not the hardest to find, just happened to be the last two to find there way here.
