This past week has been quite eventful!  I was asked to write my second article for Sports Collectors Daily.  I wrote about how to break down and sell a large collection of cards before your wife kills you.  (Link here to my articles on SCD: )

I was also asked to play a part in a commercial!  The commercial was for an entry in Crash the Super Bowl for Doritos. I wrote about it and put it in some “Off Topic” forums, but figured I’d post it in this blog posting as well.


You can check it out here:

Needless to say, I’m not going to be quitting my day job anytime soon, lol!

The video guy who created this posted it on the Doritos site, and so I had my family check it out.  I decided to view some of the other entries… guess who is in another entry also?

Jose Canseco!

I thought that was really ironic.  I mean, what are the odds?

Speaking of Jose, I ended up doing a few customs for my collection.  After doing some 1976 customs, I figured I’d try one out of him.



Then, I thought – hey!  Why not do one of a picture my wife took of him when we were at his house? Here is the back side of it … so much more interesting than boring old stats 🙂


A few days ago, I saw a video of someone’s collection, and as he was flipping through his cards, he showed a dual patch 2007 Ultra Dual Materials.  I thought that it looked awesome, so I figured I’d cook up one of my own using this jersey:



So, here it is:


While I was making it, I kept thinking about how Ultra had Gold and Platinum Medallion parallels.  I figured I’d cook up a new one myself.  How about an Atomic Medallion?


If only 2007 Ultra made it for real, but since it is for my personal collection, I guess this will more than suffice 🙂

As for premium pieces, I was able to put together a few nice pieces of some Hall of Famers, like Bert Blyleven, Dave Winfield and Paul Molitor.  Here they are:






I realize this isn’t nearly as wordy as what I normally post, but I just figured I’d post some of these pics up before the dinner bell rings.  Thanks for reading/looking!
