Another collecting directional change for the JBF Junkpile

My collecting direction seems to be ever changing.  I feel the need to follow what I truly am interested in to keep my interest piqued.  With that being said,  I already pressed the pause button on my Braves collecting and I while back and now I am pressing the delete button on another today. 

Truly I enjoy keeping up with the Bringer of Rain but I am stopping my quest of Josh Donaldson cards at this time.  His stuff is just too hot and there is just so much competition for it too. 

The decision has been made at this time to focus on these three collections:

Anything and everything Josh Willingham
Mike Wilks Hardcourt Heroes Jersey Cards
Steve Woodard 1994 Signature Rookies Autograph Cards

Even though I'm not currently attached to the supertraders group I'm still actively keeping my eyes open for interesting things.  While I am paring down a lot of my collection I am very soon going to be re-engaging with the top three collections full speed.  Thanks to all that continue to read this blog when I post and support my collecting endeavors.  Keep on chasing your cardboard dreams!

Pro Wrestling Loot Month 2

It's time for month 2 of the Wrestling Subscription Boxes to start arriving.  The first last month as well as the first for this month comes courtesy of www.prowrestlingloot.com.  I have to say that this was my favorite last month.  There were some neat fun things in the other boxes but for the value that was my #1 box.  Let's take a look at what box #2 had to offer:

 It's a nice branded PWLoot drawstring bag.  I like these little bags.  They come in handy on a quick trip or what not.
 An exclusive pin!  OOOOOOOOOh Yeah the Madness!
 My second card is the Demon
 Looks like this week is Balor's call up for the draft since he's had his curtain call in NXT
 Some WrestleMania cash from the new authority figure of Smackdown
 Word is that Daniel Bryan is going to be the General Manager of the Smackdown Brand!  I love that
 A very cool autographed 8x10 of ADR's former personal ring announcer!
 The star was this blue TSHIRT which I love...WINNER
I also enjoy this recap card they send each month.

Again very strong this month at $26.49 shipped.  Gonna be tough to beat!

If you've read this far I want to let you know that I'm going to share some blog/collecting direction news this week as I'm making another shift....Stay Tuned and Thanks for reading!

Reviewing the fourth of four wrestling subscription boxes

This has been a fun month of receiving wrestling subscription boxes.  It's time to take a look a the final offering from Wrestlecrate.com

 Some nice branded goodies.  A mouse pad and a key chain lanyard
 A neat pink shirt
 This DVD is a star to me.  I look forward to seeing AJ at his bullet club best!
 I must admit I have a few WWE Pop Vinyls but not the Warrior!  Score
A well traveled NXT competitor 8x10

Professionalism-4 Stars
I'll probably use the keychain for something but I don't use a mousepad.  Nice Branding though.

Value-3 Stars
At $37.49 you have to be hoping for a homeun.  I wouldn't have minded having a different shirt.  Feels like this one didn't quite knock it out of the park

Cool Factor-3.5 Stars
This DVD is one I really will enjoy sitting down with.  The 8x10 was decent.  The Warrior was a nice get for me.

I have decided to give all four subscriptions another try and see what I can score.  Would you like to see me keep sharing?

Taking a look at wrestling subscription box.....Have Mercy!

Let's take a look at box 3 of 4 that I tried this month for wrestling subscription services:

 This one came courtesy of Pro Wrestling Crate.  I knew that the Hardcore Icon Mick Foley was affiliated with this service.  I didn't know what to expect on this one.  Let's take a look!
 A very neat Mr. Socko Dude Love Pen
 A Dude Love Air Freshener
 Dude Love Button
 A Spotify invitation to some of Micks summer favorites
 Some groovy Dude shades
 I did like this fold out poster
The shirt is pretty fun.

Professionalism-5 Stars
Nice information card and well branded with all Dude Love stuff

Value-3 Stars
At $29.99 it's not a huge spend.  I love Mick Foley so it was cool for me.  I just don't know is it Mick stuff each and every month

Cool Factor-3.5 Stars
Again I love the Hardcore Legend and will enjoy this Dude Love gear but I'm not sure if it's Mick Foley stuff each time or if this was just a summer of Love exclusive.  Either way I'm going to give it one more try....Have Mercyyyyyyyyy(But not Waylon Mercy)
