Blogiversary and Contest Time


 

Baseball Cards! Other 3 sports were on separate tables.
Nothing but Top Loaders in 2 of the Shoe Boxes; Penny Sleeves in the other!
 
Near complete sets in this binder. Love the Fleer Metal Sets!

    By the way, that's an amazing haul. I honestly would have just snatched every card related thing up at that price!

  2. Brewers!

    And I would have had a difficult time not trying to find a way to buy everything in site. Seriously, I might have missed a mortgage payment for all that. Just incredible.

    1. They actually offered everything in the gym for a grand, but I had to refuse because I would have had to rent a storage unit to find room for it all until I could figure out what to do with it. Much less stressful this way!

    Like Tony, it would have been hard not to buy it all. I'm sure you will get a lot participants as that era of cards is fantastic!

  5. Hey, I like the Cubs too!

    Furthermore, that is pretty much the dream scenario I'm hoping for from every estate sale/garage sale/yard sale that I'm walking into.

  6. Wow, you were the first person? It's basically like you had your own personal card show.

    Yanks and Tino!

    Congrats on the anniversary. We started within a few months of each other!

    As far as mid/late 90s guys, I'd be down for any Ken Caminiti, Bonds, or A-rod.

    1. It was fun and I'm always up for a new challenge.
      Man, there was a boat load of Bonds and A-rod in the two boxes I've been able to sort through. Only two Caminiti cards so far.

    1. Whoa! Let's not get ahead of ourselves here!
      It's under serious consideration that I will shut the blog down when the Cubs finally realize the dream of "next year". Hopefully that's before my ten-year!

  19. Rangers! And here's my post:

  20. Bill Mueller being pinched by Godzilla will be from here forth etched into my soul. I root for The Yankees and "El Duque" Orlando Hernandez is my favorite player from that era.

  25. Congrats on your blogiversary! Arizona Diamondbacks

  26. Congratulations on 5 years. My favorite team is the Cardinals, and I suppose Mark McGwire would count as a player who made his name in the mid to late 90s, even though he was around in the late 80s too.

  33. Congrats on 5 years! I am just one short of you lol. Gotta add you to my blog list too as I am always looking for new reads.

    Great pickups up there and those were my favorite years of collecting and especially being a 90's insert fanatic!

    I am a Yanks fan. But a fan of collecting anything in general.

  39. I'm late to enter and that's cool, but wanted to congratulate you on your blogiversary and nice to have a handwritten letter within a post done by handwritten letter. I saw a couple of these but didn't know who originated it, so now I have to read Gavin's post. I might just have to try this when I get some free time.
