2011 Topps Series 2 Rack Pack Break

In WalMart picking up some necessities and couldn't resist season 2.  Picked up two rack packs-Here is rack 1:

Hiroki Kuroda Base

Jake Arrieta Base
Carlos Lee Base
Josh Rodriguez RC Base
Pedro Beato RC Base
Joel Zumaya Base
Aaron Rowand Base

Buster Posey 60 Years of Topps
Before there was Topps Bowman 48-55

Thoughts-Never gotten so many Cabrera's in one pack.  The Carlton is neat. Disappointed at no Diamond Code. Only thing I need from this pack is the Heyward and Uggla. Everything else can be had in an easy trade.

New Concept-Stealing it from fellow bloggers-Take Eight

I have seen this on a couple of other blogs...Want to give credit where credit is due to originator but  I'm gonna give it a twirl.  I will call mine-TAKE EIGHT.  The concept is simple.  I will post a group of 8 cards, if you want them-claim them first.  You can send me Braves in return.  If no one claims the group within a day or two, I will add another eight cards. Here we go...Claim it if you want it!

Card 1-Paul Molitor 1988 Topps All Star Commerative Set #3
An all time great to start it off
Card 2-Brooks Robinson 04 Legendary Cuts #14
Another legend
Card 3-John Rodriguez 02 Topps Total #529
Why do I feel like from the picture and the name that this Alex's less talented cousin?
Card 4-Cecil Fielder 1991 UD Fielder's Feat #83
I thought this card was boss back in 1991!
Card 5-Dale Berra/Yogi Berra 1985 Topps Father/Son Card #132
Dale didn't do quite as well as Pops!
Card 6-Todd Van Poppel 1991 Score Rookie #389
This was another hot one 20 years ago!
Card 7-Jim Abbott 1992 UD Team MVP Holograms #3
Scan is horrible, card is neat.  Jim Abbott was quite an amazing athlete in my opinion.
Card 8- Jay Austin 08 Playoff Contenders Rookie #28
I don't know him but maybe he is a big deal or no deal at all?


So that's todays offering!  Let me know if you wanna take the eight!

Talk about my PC-Round 1

A while back, someone asked me who I collected on the Braves and to explain what I was looking for.  So here goes.

First and foremost, I have a binder that I call my anthology collection.  It has one card of every Braves player(in uni) that I can get my hands on.

Secondly, I collect all current Bravos and a few legends.  The legends I collect are my four favorite hitters and my five favorite pitchers.

Warren Spahn
Phil Niekro
Tom Glavine
John Smoltz
Greg Maddux

Hank Aaron
Dale Murphy
Eddie Matthews
Chipper Jones

Jerseys/Autos of any Brave in UNI.

Any of the legend doubles and anyone I already have for my anthology I put to the side for team trades.

Love to get Braves Lots and check 'em against my anthology!  I will try to get some pics and an updated list of my anthology collection posted soon.

Last chance Team Lots Before they go to Ebay

I blogged the other day about having to move some things quickly to help with some bills. I specifically discussed team lots.  I have decided the easiest thing to do would be small priority boxes.  They will hold about 320 cards and I will stuff them with your favorite team.  I have all NFL teams except the Rams. I have all MLB teams except DBACKS and Rays.I would like to get $4.50(less than 1.5 cents per card) per box plus the cost of shipping-$5.20.  Would be paypal gift of $9.70 if you want to claim your team.  Drop me an email at lifebythedrop79@yahoo.com if you're interested.

Team Lots for sale before they get listed on the 'bay

I'm about to list a large percentage of my collection on the 'bay.  Its a sad deal for me but financial "opportunities" at home require that I try and raise necessary funds.  Will be listing hundreds of auctions this weekend. Before I start listing, I wanted to give anyone interested an opportunity to buy at a discount.  I will be listing team lots for $4 dlvd on the bay but anyone that gets in touch with me I will let them go for $3 dlvd.  Lots are 100 cards mixed years.  I have at least 3 lots of every NFL and MLB team.  If interested contact me at lifebythedrop79@yahoo.com.

Thanks
