Tony Hawk Relic

Here's the latest card I picked up off of Ebay. The coolest part of this card is that every little piece is different. The Tony Hawk auto is about the only other Ginter card I'd like to have as i've bought the complete set off of Ebay. I would trade my Heyward auto for the Hawk auto if anyone has one or know's someone that does.

Trade With Priceless Pursuit

Joe from www.PricelessPursuit.wordpress.com claimed the Darryl Strawberry cards I wanted to get rid of. He sent me a nice package of Reds cards in return. Here's a few of my favorites which includes a nice pack of 80's baseball tats featuring Pete Rose. I love the Janish refractor rookie and the '10 Topps vintage Bench '57. I love the '57 set for some reason.

Breaking News: Bowman Prices Officially Beyond Ignorant

Let me get this straight...The Strasburg 1/1's have all been found minus a printing plate or two and this product still continues to rise. The latest price for a jumbo box is $388.99. I'm not even sure if the Bryce Harper Superfractor has been found but if it hasn't who cares? One remaining super card does not warrant this kind of inflation. I'm not blaming Blowout totally, I've had nothing but good experiences with them. But $388? Seriously? Is anyone really paying this much? Are enough people paying $355 that the price can continue to rise? Unbelievable.

Dr. J

Just wanted to show off my latest Ebay pull. This is a 1996 Topps Finest Chrome Refractor Reprint of Julius Erving's rookie card.

Huge Ginter Hit

I received my box of Ginter from Blowout yesterday. Two of the hits were your standard lower end relics (Carlos Marmol jersey, Yunel Escobar bat) but the third will probably pay for the box. I got a Jason Heyward auto. I also got my first bazooka back hand numbered mini (Eric Byrnes) which is available for trade if anyone wants it.

Trade With SpastikMooss

I sent Tim (SpastikMooss) of The Great Sports Name Hall Of Fame a Tyronn Lue X-Fractor that I didn't want and he did. We've been emailing back and forth and i've found out that we have some similar collecting interests. I've also been inspired to streamline my collecting goals. Last year I bought anything and everything. I have some people I collect, some people I half-ass collect and a lot of stuff I accumulate. So the process has begun. Tim helped me out by sending me a nice stack of Reds cards old and new. He also sent along some transparent cards (ex. EX) that we're both fond of. Check out his site. He's a cool cat and has a fresh take on card collecting.

Any Darryl Strawberry Collectors Out There?

I have a stack of Strawberry cards from the 80's and 90's I want to get rid of. You can have them for nothing or take them and send me some Reds or something. Free cards! Send me an email or leave me a comment. First person to reply gets them.
