While I am mostly better from sickness, I do still have a lingering cough, I took a few days off blogging and most of the internet to play some Xbox 360. For some reason I had a feeling to play some Saints Row 2 and decided to start at the beginning. I'm like 30% done with the game again, not bad since I never beat it and only got 85% completion ever. I don't care about beating games as much as having fun playing them. It was great to go back and play it and I plan to play more later, but I knew I had to get back to blogging.
I've spent time on other things lately too, as I've been working on a couple things for my blog and my goals for 2016. Today I also did some scanning. Yesterday would have been my sister Andrea's 39th birthday, and I promised friends and family I would find pictures and post on Facebook. Since I did that I figured I'd do some other scanning, and now I have a post to talk about.
Let's look at some cards.
Got the newest issue of Sports Illustrated for Kids the other day. I scanned this in case the Trading Card Database needed them scanned. Some good ones this time, I like the Biles one and the Altuve ones the most. The Jimmy Walker one though is DY-NO-MITE!!!!! Wait, I think I confused him with someone else.
I spent a lot of time away from Listia lately for a number of reasons, but mostly because I had no time and because I was running low on credits. I have about 50 cents worth of credit left so wins are hard to come by. However I get a few good ones recently including this Frankie Frisch one. I like this set so when I see some cheap I bid. I'm surprised I won it, but happy I did.
I never knew this card existed until I bid on it. It appears to be a silk screen sticker card or something. I have no idea what it is, but it was cheap and I bid higher than normal but still was the only bidder. I was real happy when it came.
I have to use my credits with care when bidding and I almost passed this auction up when I first saw it. Sure it was for 499 credits (current credits are about 20,000 for a buck so mega cheap), but I didn't need any of these though I do miss the old Broncos helmets. The jerseys, not so much.
I bought it though for these other cards included.
Sure more cards I didn't really need, but they were older Chiefs I didn't have and while I don't need every Chiefs card, maybe one day I'll work on getting at least one Chief card a year. The only downside was the one card I wanted most, the Art Still, was the one in worst shape. It seemed to be coming apart slightly, but I can't tell if it was my fault, the sellers, the post office, or whose. At any rate getting any cards for under 10 cents is a great deal. I'm not too mad. I didn't spend much on all these combined and if I keep an eye out, I might get more deals soon.
As for the planning for the site, I'll have details soon, its nothing major, but it is something I've wanted to do for a while, and something I'll have fun doing. I've already worked on a couple things, so while I'm not posting as much, I am still working on it.
So that wraps it up for today, thanks for reading and I hope everyone has a great weekend.
