Last week I was a little busy working on a few things. As the weekend approached though I was still a little backed up. I had a wedding to go to Saturday night, and really didn't have food on Friday, so since I had to go to Walmart anyways, I figured I'd get a Pizza (as did my mom). It wasn't really because I wanted to get more cards, but hey if I could kill two birds with one stone why not? I'm about halfway through the set so I figured any cards at this point would be doubles, but if nothing else there is still one more Royal card to get, so I was hoping I could.
How did I fare?
Well, no Royals, but I didn't have the Bumgarner card yet, so one out of three isn't bad. I also plan to give the Mr. Met to a friend, but I may keep it. I thought about starting a Frankenset of some sort, and one featuring Mascots could be fun. I'll decide later. I can't complain overall about this pack since it did yield one card I needed. Inching closer to halfway now. Maybe I should look to Sportlots.
Oh well, one more pack? Any Royals or cards I needed?
No dice. No Royals. No cards I needed. That's not bad since they are newer cards and since I'm sorting cards anyways, a Dodger, Red Sox, or Marlins collector might get these one I start shipping out.
I'm sorry if there isn't much substance to the blog today, I just don't have much to add. Since its a bit short I figured I'd show a few Listia wins I've gotten recently. I haven't been on as much because my credits are worth about a buck so its harder to win cheap auctions and I don't plan on adding money, at least for now.
I bid on this auction mainly for the Nunez card. I don't think I have it, so I figured it was cheap enough to bid. I'm an idiot though because I updated my have and want lists a couple months ago, but I never look. Even now I still haven't looked. I need to as a couple people inquired about some trades so I should do that soon.
The Thurman card I'm 99.9% sure I have. In fact I'm going to bump that to 100% sure as I've seen it many times. The Jamie Quirk card, I'm not so sure. It's likely I did have it as most Score sets are a blur to me and I just pass over them. I don't think I have too many Quirk cards though, so its worth checking. In any event, this was the equivalent of like 5 cents or less, so it was worth the risk even if I had all three.
These were three separate auctions, and I'm positive I needed all three.... at least the first two. The Rusch card looked familiar but I don't have many of the late 90s- mid 2000's so its very likely that I needed it. If not, oh well. It's still a nice card.
The Chris Sale card I did look up and I did need it. I don't want to start bidding on individual cards to work on the 2016 set, but Sale was on a really hot streak when this was up for bid, so since nobody was bidding I tried my luck. Who knows, his cards may skyrocket and I cold make a fortune. If not, I'm one less card away from completing series one.
The John Dettmer card looks familiar as well. However I don't remember if I have this version or the Electric Diamond version. If I have it, I can give it to my friend. The reason I collect Dettmer cards is because he went to Mizzou. For the most part, I have a good majority of his cards, so from now on I better check and see what else I need.
So I guess that wraps it up for today, not too much to offer, but at least I finally scanned some cards. I was going to rant about the Royals today, but I decided not to. Its for the best. It doesn't mean I won't down the road, but for now, I decided to cool off first.
Thanks for reading, and have a great night.
