Ugh.


 



I really hate photoshop.



  To upset for more words, or maybe a few.  I really liked Prado as a Brave, he was a great player that would play any position and also seemed like a great guy off the field.  He was just so.. happy when I would see him.                                                                                                                                                                                      
  It was  bad enough when he was a Dimaondback, but at least then I could see  him play a  few times a year. Heck, I even went to a Arizona vs Braves game last year.  Now as ... that I will likely never see him except maybe once a year in inter league play and that is IF he even plays.  First B-Mac and now Prado. 

It was also pretty terrible how he got the news.  He was in the car on his way to the ball park.  You would think they would do that kind of thing in person.

R.I.P Pete Van Wieren

Pete van Wieren passed away today from a battle with cancer at 69.   He was a longtime Atlanta Brave Broadcaster for 33 years.

Me and my grandmother listened to a lot of games of his.

Chipper jones retweeted me! and I am an idiot.

So, after months of trying THIS finally happened.




Then I noticed that he retweeted another tweet



and then.. someone  pointed out something


Chipper actually commented...



...I cant believe I wasn't following him. Over a year and I didn't even realize it. ><. I am the most oblivious person in the world

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?
