Vacation Top 25

Here is the first in a handful of posts to show off and say thanks for 25 super neat cards!  Many thanks to everyone that did trades and sent cards.  No duds in any of those trades. Just these 25 speak to me.

25-A man called Busta-The signature isn't world class but the name is first rate! This gem came from Sport Card Collectors Blog.
 24. A duo of autos from former Bama Brute Barrett Jones.  These both came again from SCC
 23.  Going back to the dates when #'d to 1480 was limited and its a Cardinal auto I didn't have.  Thanks to Marc B for this ink.
 22.  Classic Bedrock-82 Topps Traded came courtesy of Marc B
 21.  Boy I loved the Rackers back in the day.  I had never seen this one before and it came from John Hazen.

Stay tuned for the next few posts as it only gets cooler as we go!

An update filled with many thanks!

How quickly does the time go when on vacation?? Been back at work for nearly a week and it seems like I never was on vacation.  But I have lots of great cardboard that was sent my way to bust at the beach and I will have that as my souvenir.

I will need to update my autograph counts but for now I just wanted to pass along thanks to these folks who sent along awesomeness for me to enjoy:

I could literally spend weeks blogging about these amazing packages that were sent my way but time is at a premium around the junkpile.  I will be compiling a top 25 to post in the coming days.

Some more changes are coming here as I am in the process of dwindling my collection down to the bare necessities.  I  have begun doing some selling on COMC and may be putting bulk lots on ebay in the coming months.  Probably going to do blind flat rate boxes with a gu card for $10 shipped if your interested you can shoot me a note at lifebythedrop79 at yahoo dot com

Definitely not abandoning the blog or collecting by changing my paradigm drastically. More to come on that and  I look forward to soon unveiling exactly what's next for me collecting wise.

One last Junk trading opportunity

Got a great start to building my vacation cardboard stash with some trades the  last three weeks. All have been mailed that were originally claimed in those first two posts all but four are sent from the last post. Packages still due to Oscar, Adam, John, and gwdjr33.   I will be collecting all packages and ripping when I go on my next vacation.  Anyone else want to trade?  In return, I'm looking for autographs(any sport, any player-weirder or wackier the better), mascot cards, Josh Willingham, Josh Donaldson, Braves, Arizona Cardinals, and even Dallas Mavericks.  Don't even worry about telling what you'll send in return.  This time feel free to claim up to 3 cards for trade and shoot me an email at lifebythedrop79 at yahoo dot com

If you are claiming from CCW just remember I don't check there everyday so you may miss out if I don't see a claim before I see it here on my comments.
