Over the past week or so, I've sold some of the boxes of cards I had for sale. Some of them are being busted online by a newfound baseball blogger buddy over at http://www.thedailydimwit.com/ - check him out and friend him! Lets hope they get some good stuff, but not too good of stuff that I regret having sold them (KIDDING!) I think the group break goes on tonight! Someone else bought a few boxes today and will probably buy about 8 more. Finally, I have someone who may purchase the rest of what I have. Not completely sure yet
So far, I've gotten some really decent stuff. I've busted about 20 boxes - Matt Wieters Letter auto, Youkilis Letter auto, Kendrick rookie auto, Nelson Cruz rookie auto, some Buster Posey rookies, various other rookies of Pence, Lincecum and Braun ... a good smattering of stuff. I opened a serial #ed Lincecum this morning, and I also got this ... the best so far .... 2007 UD Future Stars Tim Lincecum Rookie Autograph Boom. (Happy dance!)
One morning while perusing the internet, I found out that there was an estate sale, and that they had binders of baseball cards. It perked my ears up a tad, but only a tad, because 9 times out of 10, if someone is being vague about cards they are selling, it is because they are a bunch of junk 1988 donruss or 1988 score, etc (my apologies to the collectors of mass rookies of glavine, caminiti, alomar, etc.) I asked the situation, and an older man was going to be moved out of state from his condo with his family out
I have a confession to make. I obsessively write down purchases on any cards I acquire. it is an addiction. No doubt, whenever I buy a blaster box at the store, I always make the note next to it "stupid buy!" or "why did I get this again?" It pains me to see $20 go down the drain for a $1 jersey card of a nobody and 50 accompanying base cards. I found a guy one time who was selling a collection from a family member who had passed away. He mentioned there were a lot of unopened packs of
I'm sure you all are wondering by now why my blog says something about 6,000,000 cards. I have a dealer friend who has millions upon millions of sports cards. I'm telling you - his collection/inventory must be what heaven is like. Well, ok - maybe Heaven will be filled with Exquisite & Triple Threads, instead of 88 Topps and 92 Donruss :) This is what 650,000 look like. Just a hair over 10% of the entire stockpile. Anyway, probably a few years ago, we had done a deal - I traded a lot of things - autographed bats, jerseys, plaques
Hi there! I am tanmanbaseballfan. Married for over 10 years, have two kids, and have a serious addiction to carboard crack! Last year, my ears perked up when I first heard about blowout and some other places doing a black Friday sale. Instantly, I knew it would become a tradition for as long as they would do it. With breakfast at my desk, I was ready at 4:45 am to get ready and make some purchases. After a while, I just knew that I wasn't going to get anything, because the ebay buy-it-now's would stay on for *maybe* 3 seconds.
