As this weekend has started madness in terms of basketball, I have been enjoying a lot of games. If you follow me on twitter, you might have noticed. I just watched Wichita State defeat Kansas and while I don't like the Jayhawks, it was a good game. Not the closest by any means, but still a good game. I have been tweeting and some may wonder my hashtags I've been using. First I used #WatchForTheLoveOfTheGame which is really long, and has no relation to the Kevin Costner movie (which is worth watching). A previous post mentioned a went bracketless again this year, and am watching the games as neutral as I can be. The aforementioned Shockers game was the first I had more than a little bias. It has allowed me to see great moments without feeling bad for teams I picked. I realized that hashtag was a bit long so I shortened it to #W4TG. Short and sweet, it means Watch For The Game. Neither hashtag have been used much, so you should find my tweets. I like them enough that I might use it for other events I watch like the NBA Playoffs, NHL Finals, or any other game I don't have a team competing (like most Sunday Night MLB games). I've also used the motto, so it made sense to start a hashtag.
Anyways, its time for the post to begin. Today I have a few things to show and mention so let's begin with my favorite non-Royals player ever- GREG MADDUX! I have gotten a few cards of his off Listia recently so I decided yesterday to update my have list, and it added about 15 cards I didn't have listed before. Here is one that I didn't have (and is scanned on my other computer so the pics are via COMC.
Cool oddball card I never saw before. I was the only bidder (thank goodness for less activity during the week). When I opened the package I was happy. Then something caught my eye. IS THAT A PULL OUT? No mention of that, so I pulled it.
Holy cow this is cool? It had never been pulled either as far as I could tell. I like this card even more. Here is the back.
I would like to see similar cards made today. This could be a nice insert set for some set.
One of the better cards I've gotten in a while. So let's move on. I mentioned when it started I wasn't going to be showing my Wallet Card much, and to be honest, I've forgotten a bit, but it was a nice day so Kevin Appier took a trip.
A nice shot of the skyline of my hometown. I think that is the car antenna, so a nice day as far as you can tell. One day Ape might actually get out of the wallet. Hopefully in a month or two I have some stuff planned and he'll see more light of day.
The day I took that picture I went to one of my favorite stores- Savvy Seconds.They no longer have 20 books for $1 (now 5 for $1), but I did find a couple things. One was that book I recently showed. Here is the other item I got.
The Mid-Missouri Mavericks were a short lived non-affiliated to the MLB minor league team based in Columbia, Missouri. I am going to talk about them one day on here. It will be part of a feature I hope to start soon. The hat set me back a buck, and is in almost unused condition. They had another but it wasn't in great shape.
Let's wrap up the day with a box. I got it last night.
I had a couple extra bucks when I went to Walmart last night and this was only 10 bucks. Not bad for 11 packs.
I don't get excited over Opening Day sets, but I like the design enough and it was cheaper than anything else. I will show the results in a future post (I hope this week), and eh, it was good, I guess good enough that I might get another box in the future if I have a few extra bucks.
That will wrap it up for today, thank you for reading and have a great night.
