War comes to an end

Hope everyone is having a safe and happy warm holidays!  I received so many nice things from my blogging friends and family.  While I would like to take weeks to show off all the goods unfortunately I don't have the extra time these days. 

I did however want to take the opportunity to tip the hat to my arch enemy Mr. Bob Walk the Plank for a great war.  He came in with a flurry at the end and thankfully I withstood his advances...wasn't easy.  My final blow arrived at Bob Walk HQ the day that I received this surprise:

 A very odd shaped mailer.  I've used these size before....Oh man
 Soon after I realized I had been sneak attached and one of my closest allies The Lost Collector had switched sides!!! But this twist of fate landed me a collection cornerstone!  A GAME USED WILLINGHAMER bat!!!
Matthew then followed up his surrender with a parting gift-the most high end Willingham package I've ever received.

Matthew and AJ- I can't thank you enough brothers.  This was a tremendous haul that just blew me a way.  No matter what way my collecting turns I will never be letting go of my Willingham collection and these will always be treasured.

Will I war again? 
Maybe
Have I identified a potential opponent?
Perhaps
Will my collecting take any surprising turns in 2017?
Yes

All will be revealed in due time my friends.  Until then I wish for nothing by health and happiness for you all in the new year!

Final Day of Holiday Tradeathon!

There are things a foot here at JBF headquarters.  Christmas will be here before you know it and I'm a big kid at heart!  Looking to offer up some neat cardboard and score some bubblers to open for Christmas.  Here's how this will work:

-I will be offering up cards for the next 14 days
-Bloggers can claim from 1-5 cards and then you will be unable to claim going forward
-Bloggers can only claim 5 cards.  Once you reach 5 cards you are done.  Once a card is picked it's final but I'm removing the one time only claim.  If you see a card you want today you can claim it so it isn't lost and still pick on future days to fill out your five.  Patience will be a factor as there are going to be lots of outstanding cardboard offered up.  Don't want to jump on something day one and then miss out on something you like even better later.  Gotta be careful
-At the end of the two weeks all remaining cards will be offered again and anyone can claim them
-Cards must be claimed in the comments of the blog post in which they were offered
-In return I ask that you email me at lifebythedrop79 at yahoo dot com with your mailing addy even if your sure that I have it
-Please do not share what you will send in return.  All of these are things I enjoy-mascot cards, benchwarmers autos/relics/#d, Alabama Alumni, Rare Braves Cards, Arizona Cardinals Autographs, Steve Woodard, Gary Redus, Josh Willingham, oddball gu/relic pieces that are out of the norm, autographs that are out of the norm, wrestling stuff and wacky surprises are also cool.  I will be cool with anything you send but won't open till Christmas.

Let's look at Day 14's offerings.  If you want something from Days 1-13 go back and make your claim now!!!  After next Wednesday I will offer all remaining cards for anyone that wants to claim them before I start mailing.....Feast on these

 Russell Wilson Topps Prime Rookie, Addison Russel Stars and Stripes Jersey Auto 02/49, Ben Simmons Hoops Rookie, Chipper Jones Jersey 004/150, Harmon Killebrew Panini Foil 08/50, Curt Flood 1959 Topps, Bill Bradley 1970 Topps Basketball

So now is the time to get your claim on

15 Days of Holiday Trading

There are other things a foot here at JBF headquarters.  Christmas will be here before you know it and I'm a big kid at heart!  Looking to offer up some neat cardboard and score some bubblers to open for Christmas.  Here's how this will work:

-I will be offering up cards for the next 14 days
-Bloggers can claim from 1-5 cards and then you will be unable to claim going forward
-Bloggers can claim cards only one time during this two week period.  Patience will be a factor as there are going to be lots of outstanding cardboard offered up.  Don't want to jump on something day one and then miss out on something you like even better later.  Gotta be careful
-At the end of the two weeks all remaining cards will be offered again and anyone can claim them
-Cards must be claimed in the comments of the blog post in which they were offered
-In return I ask that you email me at lifebythedrop79 at yahoo dot com with your mailing addy even if your sure that I have it
-Please do not share what you will send in return.  All of these are things I enjoy-mascot cards, benchwarmers autos/relics/#d, Alabama Alumni, Rare Braves Cards, Arizona Cardinals Autographs, Steve Woodard, Gary Redus, Josh Willingham, oddball gu/relic pieces that are out of the norm, autographs that are out of the norm, wrestling stuff and wacky surprises are also cool.  I will be cool with anything you send but won't open till Christmas.

Feel free to holler if you have any questions......Here is Day one:
 First up is a Ken Griffey Jr. Oscar Mayer Disc, Rickey Henderson 1982 Topps Sticker, Wayne Simpson extra crusty Topps Coin, Well Loved Andre Dawson Rookie, Garrett Grayson GU #'d 170/799 and Eric Hinske Bowman Chrome Gold Refractor 140/170
Marvin Harrison Topps Uncirculated Refractor 257/349, Warren Spahn Topps Sterling 186/250,  Derek Jeter/Barry Larkin Bowman's Best 1994, Randle Inception Huge Patch 25/25


Let's have some fun, tell your friends!

War with Walk- Bob is the dirtiest player in the game

War wages on with Bob Walk!  You go to the front porch to go inside your house normally but occasionally you find a box.  I was somewhat expecting a box because Matthew and I normally let each other know something maybe coming.  Recently, I have been doing that to him on twitter-Oh hey you have multiple flat rate boxes coming soon....Happy Thursday! 

When I got in the box...this is whats inside....
So yeah...nothing major.  Just a major nerding out moment.  29 years a fan of the Nature Boy and now I finally have a nature boy piece in my collection!  Thank you Matthew but you know this means WAR!

I control the outcome of World Series games and get paid for it

So big congrats today to all Cubs fans but especially to my cardboard buddy Ptown Tom on the awesomeness.  During the NLCS Tom and I agreed that I wouldn't open a bubbler he had sent me until the end of the series.  As you now know-Cubs Win.  Tom being the great humanitarian he is offered to send me another bubbler in return for my patience.
 Unknown to Tom was the fact that I decided I wanted to control another round of playoffs and give all the Cubs fans what they've been waiting for-so I didn't open it.  Today I let Tom know this fact and decided I would finally crack this offering.
 So happy for Tom!  Glad I could help
 He starts it out innocently enough with this GU auto of the Willinghammer and then..........
Boom!!!! Tom provides the payoff!!!!!

Who wants my help next lol?????


Awesome stuff bro.  Thank you so much for some amazing Willinghams for my collection.  So proud for you.  Guess who now has the longest professional streak....Correct answer....Arizona Cardinals-Anybody know anyone that's an Arizona Cardinal fan?

War with Walk: Bob treats me to a picture show

The packages are starting to flow and the war is on!  Matthew was kind enough to blow my mailbox up with some 8x10 Autographed Love----Let's let the pictures do the talking:



Very impressive Mr. Walk.  Way to strike on my weakest positions.  Thanks to the opposition forces for these treats but now it's time to get back to work- #BOMB BOB

War with Walk: The opening shot

Symbolism isn't lost on me.  Does it surprise me that Matthew Scott has come to fight?  Absolutely not surprised at all but absolutely thrilled to have a game opponent.  The venerable Pirates blogger from Morgantown clearly was out to send a message with his first shot. 

Possible headlines......
Walk sends me Wilks....Bob invites me to walk the plank...Jaybarkerfan gets planked


Ole Bobby went and sent me a real life plank autographed by favorite Rice Owl Alumnus Mr. Mike Wilks.  Well played sir....It's time to play the game

Cutting a promo on Bob Walk

Bob Walk, I have a question to answer your questions. As you, Bob Walk travel to the post office by conventional means, the normals you travel with experience malfunctions. As you realize all that is left is total self destruction, do you, Bob Walk, show self pity? Do you, Bob Walk, try to reason why? Do you, Bob Walk, try and comfort the normals that have even more fear that you?




Or do you, Bob Walk, kick the doors out? Kick the cockpit door down. Take the two pilots that have already made the sacrifice so that you can face the challenge. Dispose of them, Bob Walk. Assume the controls, Bob Walk. Shove the control into a nosedive Bob Walk. Push yourself to total self destruction. As you realize, Bob Walk, you are about to enter a world close to parts unknown. Ah smell it, jaybarkerfans. Do you, Bob Walk, look for a place to hide? Or do you, Bob Walk, face the challenge that may be more powerful than even you are, Bob Walk, face the challenge that may be more powerful than even you are, Bob Walk.
 



You, Bob Walk, must self destruct so that you will know, Bob Walk who is the CHOSEN ONE. For, Bob Walk, I am not the CHOSEN ONE…that you speak of. I am not, Bob Walk, I am……….THE ONLY ONE

Things I get from Bob Walk and what I'm going to do about it

So

There's this guy named Matthew Scott, aka Nom de Plume is Bob Walk the Plank. 

Mr Walk and I have been involved in some shenanigans before...

Then this is the kind of stuff that shows up in Hazel Green from Morgantown------
 Just a bat
Just a signed bat of my favorite player!!!  Holy Bat Batman

So our time of peace.....its over.  It was announced earlier by mutual cardboard acquaintance-Tony of Off Hiatus, that its on and its on brother. "The Lawyer"  is one of the great story framers in the blogging game and he laid out my declaration of war here. Buckle that chin strap its time for cardboard war.  I've got lots of tricks and heavy artillery that I've been saving up Bobby Walk and I'm aiming all armaments to Morgantown #warpart2 #Septembertoremember

I'm not even sure it's worth you trying to fight back my friend.

 Josh and miniature Pink 25/25 Companion
 That UD is #'d to 99
 #'d to 499 on the Blue Framed GQ
AJ believes those cracked ice are limited to 25 and I turn no down no Willingham autos...ever

AJ thank you for a very nice mailing.  I hope ya''ll are getting settled in at the new place.  Will be hitting you back soon
