Things have been slow here at Waiting 'til Next Year headquarters due to two main factors: I watch more Cubs baseball when they're playing well AND I'm still sorting through my estate sale find from a couple of months ago. I dare say I'm almost done and packages will start being shipped out early next week. Woo-Hoo!
Baseball Card Breakdown, dropped an unexpected package on me the other day. I follow just over one hundred different blogs, but I read Gavin's any time I see a post show in my blog roll feed. He's always coming up with something cool to blog about and I know someday Topps (or another company) is going to swoop in and steal him away from us. But until then we all get to benefit from his creativity!
461st different card in my collection of Kid K.
Man, Dexter Fowler is a great fit for this team. When the entire baseball world thought Dexter signed with Baltimore I was so stressed about who was going to play center field and who was going to lead off.
And now on to the pack war. Lots of pictures and little commentary folks, because there are lots of cards!
minus the bubble, takes out Tom Browning. 3-0.
I'm not a fan of Clark. I like how the Cubs use him in the public, but I wish he was more like Orbit, the Phillie Phanatic, or Pirate's Parrot. Pity point to the Fleer pack, because it's been a while since I sent a card to the Tim Wallach blogger. 14-1. There goes the perfect game.
It's time for 2015 Topps Series 2, but the Gavin pack already has this thing sewn up.
want list. Ryno wins. Every. Time. 16-1
Move over Griffey, there's a new #1 in the house!
Conlon set and went to check this one off when I found it had no number on the back. Turns out to be another custom from Gavin! Ha! He got me! Schoendienst, Burdette and Hammerin' Hank versus Crush david, Moreland, and Man Bear Puig. The win goes to the Conlon because Hall of Famers are cool.
Final score: 1,354,641 to 3. I think the '89 UD VOGELMONSTER may have broken the score board.
Thanks for the great stack of cards, Gavin. I've been working on a package for you and it'll hit the post office sometime next week!
