2014 topps for trade and want list

First some pics

Braaaaaaaaaves

 There was a McCann card, but I left him out.




All the colors














Inserts




Patch Card
 














I like the design overall.  The only minor gripe is the team name on the side.  It doesn't really flow with the rest of the card, sort of sticks out to me.  I would prefer just the logo in the corner. Still to many inserts to my liking.

 If you want something, let me know.  My e-mail is now martinpradofan @ hotmail.com.

Blaster vs ceral box vs jumbo pack vs single pack

So, I picked up some 2014 Topps today.    I picked up a blaster box and two cereal boxes.


 I was looking at the amount of cards you get and found that two cereal box is much better value than a blaster box.

80 cards are in  a blaster pack plus 1 patch for twenty dollars



















72 cards are in a cereal box for ten dollars

















36 cards are in a jumbo pack for five dollars (last years price)
10 cards are in a single pack for two dollars (last years price)

For 20 dollars you can get..
 80 cards in a blaster
144 cards in a cereal box
144 in a jumbo pack
100 in single packs

The jumbo and cereal boxe shave  64 cards than a  blaster and 44 cards more than single packs for the same price.


Can anyone tell me why?   Is it the  patch card  the reason there are so much fewer cards than in the others?

Can of Chipper.




So, I was surfing ebay when I came across this:

A CAN OF CHIPPER JONES!  It is a pinnacle 1998 product that features various players and inside the can is a pack of cards.  You need a can opener to open it.

 




















SEE ^  You gotta have adult supervision!  I bet they wouldn't have this today, although 1998 isn't that long ago.  Way to many sue happy people out there.

 


















I like the product information done like a  nutrition label.  Yes, it is sideways.  I rotated it on the computer  but it keeps showing up this way.


 















The cards!

 



I dunno what the hell was up with this card, or what they were thinking when they made it.  It is half a card of half a player featuring four different players, all Braves. 


 
I  also did a video of me opening it.

Why I swore enough to make a sailor blush and nearly chucked my camera at a wall...

 
.  This is for my entry for Nacho Grande's blogger bracket challenge.
 
with this card
I had this really cool idea for a post where I would make a video and edit it to be super amazing and super spectacular. 
 
....Then I got started and realized and realized how much I suck at video editing .   Oh, and that I was a  really horrible actor.
 
The lighting is horrible, sorry.  I had the light on and the window open.  Tried to mess around with it a  little but there wasn't much I could do.

What is Franklin Guitierrez staring at...

 
















Duh. 

Balls.  He's looking at balls.  Or more specifically, one ball. Not a particularly large ball.  In fact, compared to most balls, it is quite small.  To him though, this ball matters very much to him.

Grade school humor: check






He has such an enthralled look though.  He could be looking at all manner of things, like...










 SUPERMAN!





















 A UFO!
























 A CAT IN A TREE!


























A FLYING SQUIRREL!





 

RAINBOW DASH!
























MARRY POPPINS!


























HIMSELF!






















A FLYING COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!

Places where I have found baseball cards....


I am very unorganized and forgetful and lazy (and use and to much in a sentience)   I also have a lot of cards.    When you combine all that together you get cards in very unusual places.   Usually from me leaving them somewhere and forgetting to get them later.

PLACES I HAVE FOUND BASEBALL CARDS
(TODAY)



Baseball cards on my computer desk
