When Canseco shot himself in the finger, and said he may try to sell it on Ebay, I had a TON of people write me saying I should reach out to obtain his missing digit and make a card out of it. A week or 2 ago, as a fun promotional item, Jose played on an independent baseball team and they gave out foam hands missing part of the middle finger. I was able to pick one up that was signed ... I love it! With exciting as this is, nothing ... and I mean NOTHING compares to what I
Yesterday afternoon, I heard my phone kaCHING a few extra times to bid my card up from $209 to $413 or $414 - Absolutely thrilling! After researching one of the bidders, it turned out they are a banned member on a forum, though I couldn't find anything negative they said. The other person was another member on the forums, to which I reached out to letting them know I have my concerns of who is the high bidder, and they are the next in line for it. Shortly thereafter, a new ebay member bid. They ended up being the winner.
If you haven't bid yet, now is the time to do so! http://www.ebay.com/itm/2015-Mouschi-1-1-Tanner-Jones-Red-Ink-Auto-DNA-Mustache-Relic-Laundry-Cap-Tag-/281741892366?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4199201b0e
As many of you know already, I am running a contest for forum members to guess how much this card ends up selling for: . Whoever gets closest, gets this: People have been asking me like crazy ... WHAT IS IN THE CUSTOM RIP CARD!??! I'm going to leak a little bit of this here. It has to do with this: www.TheMouschiCode.com Think: The Ginter Code Lite ... for Dummies. It should be a fun little scavenger hunt for whomever wins, along with a small prize at the end. Everyone gets 3 guesses if you haven't already posted in my
I thought I'd do a video of the card, auction, and contest. The auction now has 1,199 views, 73 watchers, 50 bids and is at $204.72 with 5 days left to go. Let's keep it going guys! Once again, here is the link to the ebay auction: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2015-Mouschi-1-1-Tanner-Jones-Red-Ink-Auto-DNA-Mustache-Relic-Laundry-Cap-Tag-/281741892366?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4199201b0e
Ever since I debuted my upper lip equipped with a manly handlebar moustache, I have heard TANNER! You absolutely MUST make a card with your moustache (or mustache, if you prefer spelling it that way.) We all knew that it was going to happen. Well, friends - the time has come. Years ago, Allen & Ginter debuted this idea with a hair from Abraham Lincoln. It was a framed mini relic. I was going to do that as well, but instead, I decided to amp it up a bit. Instead of using an Allen & Ginter card, I opted for a full size
I'm not exactly the kind of guy who plays it "cool". If something awesome has happened to me, I get pumped about it and write until it is out of my system. It isn't an ego thing at all; it is more of an expression of thankfulness to God for allowing something great to happen to someone like me, who is so undeserving. In light of this, I am determined to not introduce myself to strangers as "AAAHHH!!! The guy who is on Beckett Monthly with Jose Canseco!!!" because I think people would take it wrong. Sure, I have taken
Last Tuesday, I was writing about how I bought a card off ebay, and the seller refunded the money, then turned around and sold it to someone else who contacted them after I bought it, saying they would pay more for it. As a quick re-cap, here is the card: Beautiful, huh? It was the same day I secured my 1990 Donruss Aqueous, but I was really looking forward to this gorgeous # to 10, dual patch card of Canseco also. With this release, Panini broke the several year silence of Canseco jersey cards. I remember seeing the first "major"
If you haven't heard enough of my enthusiastically chirping about how I was on the front page of the Beckett website, buckle in - because I'm about to say even more. Last night, I was a bit bummed out because I was taken off the front page. I knew it had to end at some point, but I was still bummed about it. It was a mixture of bummed-outness and thankfulness. I feel so incredibly blessed to have been featured on the website! Not too long after that, I found out I was going to be in the ACTUAL
Earlier today, I got an email from Chris Olds, editor at Beckett. "Check the front page on the site." Sure enough, front and center, a big picture of the 'stache doing the bash with Canseco! <insert girly squeal here> I'm sure it'll be gone in the next day or two, but for now, this screenshot shall live forever! BWAHAHHAAHAHA! Okay, that is all.
