Another new bobble in the fold...Lo Duca

I also acquired this one via Listia. Paid dearly for it though!
Worth it!  Awesome Bobble!

What's your cardboard dream?

The cartoon above was me when I was a kid. I loved going to the card shop!  I dreamed back then that someday I would have my own shop and be surrounded by cards.  So many things have changed since the days of 1986 topps and such.  The prospect of running a card shop nowadays doesn't seem very fiscally sound but it's still a dream that I may make a run at some day.  I often think when I visit my LCS what would I do different.  What would I carry that he doesn't? Is this a good location? How would I promote my shop?

Just musing this morning and wondering if anyone else has the same aspiration or did at one time?  Or is your cardboard dream instead to own a specific magical card? A white whale?

New autographed ball...The Woonsocket Rocket

Picked my newest autographed ball up off the 'bay. $14.99 Dlvd.  I will remember Rocco Baldelli as a hardnosed player that didn't play for an awful long time. Signature is not a beauty but it is what it is.

Themes in my blog!

Free card Fridays seem to be a big hit. I don't plan on completing "theme"ing out the blog but I have a few ideas! 

One of these ideas I have is something called "Sell me stuff" Tuesday

It's really a simple concept.  I put an offer out there and the first person to jump on it can sell me their item for some quick paypal. 

Offer 1-Autographed Baseball
The Criteria-
A.   A COA or LOA
B.   A clean not faded signature
C.   A former or current major league'er
 D.  Don't tell me who it is...I like being surprised
The offer $15 Paypal shipped

Offer 2-A Bobblehead
The Criteria
A.  Must be ceramic
B.  Good shape. No major damage
C.  Baseball player or mascot bobble
D.  Don't tell me who it is...I like being surprised
The offer $15 Paypal Shipped


So there's thirty bucks on the table.  Have a bobble head or a signed ball you wouldn't mind unloading??? Let's do it!
