Here's a new contest

I know I don't post here like I used to.

A lot of things have hampered me in collecting, mostly a lack of money to buy cards and I haven't been able to get to a few shows because of a lack of transportation, and a recent move, my cards are in boxes and I'm not able to get to them.

Anyway, through my Twitter page I found a couple of new sites, one is   Cheap Card Collecting where they have a contest going on to win some cool cards, so head over there, and if you win a Brennan Boesch card, send it my way.

I hope to get back to doing some more collecting soon, I really need to get into those boxes and clean out some things.

I'm moving, want some baseball cards?

I'm moving this coming week, and this weekend I'm going through everything in my house.

I am going to keep my Detroit Tigers cards, and a few others...I found a 2010 A&G RC of Buster Posey, but then I'm going to separate everything else by team.

If you'd like to trade for your favorite team, just leave me a comment and when I've moved I'll start to go down the list. 1st come, etc.

One thing, if you have any Brennan Boech cards, or cards of my favorite player, Bill Freehan, you will have special consideration.

I have so many cards that I've just kept in storage boxes, and it's time to get them to someone else now.

Let's do some trades, what do you say.

Thanks, John

My first 2011 Topps packs

Today I was @ Walmart, and their they were, 2011 Topps Series 1 Baseball.

At 1st I saw the regular packs, then the blisters, I think that's what they're called, and then I saw the boxes.

$19.98, 10 packs, a guaranteed Patch Card, it was Manny Ramirez of the ChiSox, with the cool old school 1970's ChiSox logo, and one 2011 Diamond Giveaway redemption card.

81 cards in all in the special box, and the cards are really nice looking.

The 2 Detroit Tigers cards I got were a Justin Verlander Topps Town(#TT-38), and a Miguel Cabrera 2010 A.L. Home Run Leaders Card(#T60-50).

The best card of the pack so far is #CMGR-8, a Cy Young 1911 T205 reprint card. Very nice.

My Mailbox

Look what I found in my mailbox today...

My redemption for the Brennan Boesch RC came today, what a great Christmas present!

There are only a few true blue Boesch fans left, but i'm not giving up on this kid from Cal.

I think he learned a lot, and I believe he will be ready to help the Tigers when Spring Training starts next February.
