Packs for a dolllar & Secret santa update

I did something that I said I wouldn't do... I went to a store today. Three, in fact. Fred's, Wal-Mart and the dollar store.

Oddly enough, they where not that busy. I've even seen it busier on some days. Bonus of going after lunch I suppose.

Besides for getting my mom a few things... GUESS WHAT I BOUGHT????????!!!!!!!!!

Can you figure it out?

Guess what else?!

The dollar tree caries cards! Someone had mentioned that on another blog and I went and there they where! Actually, I almost missed them as they where near the register. Much smaller selection than the other blogger's dollar tree though. They only had two baseball products, upper deck 2008 series one and upper deck time line. Still baseball cards in a DOLLAR store. They also had hockey, football, and basketball,

As for the UPDATE....

When you get your secret Santa gift, please let me know here or through an e-mail. I'd just like to try and keep track of things. JUST DON"T OPEN IT YET.

Oh, and one or two of you haven't sent me an e-mail about who our secret santa is... please do so ASAP. I don't want someone to get nothing. If something has come up and you can't continue, let me know soon so I can make arrangments.

BEHOLD... my BRAVE turkey

Hope everyone is having a good Thanksgiving.

I am thankful for family, our troops overseas, homemade stuffing, brown and serve rolls, turkey that isn't dry, telephones to keep in contact with family that can't be here, my cat, my blog subscribers and readers, fellow bloggers to trade with with, and the fact that I will not be out tomorrow shopping.

Plus much, much, more.

A Chrismas post you say?

A bit early for a Christmas post? Not according to the television which has been running Christmas commercials since the first of November and the stores with snowmen and Santa out before Halloween. On one isle you can buy a Jason mask and the other a singing Santa.

And me... putting up a life sized Santa at the end of the driveway, which hopefully will not be stolen like both are scarecrows where. Stealing Santa is just wrong though. Stealing baby Jesus from a manger scene is worse, even if he is plastic.

Enough of me rambling though.

Despite it being more than a decade since I have written to Santa, my family still asks for a list of what I want. This year the list is as follows...

1. Three ring binders of various sizes.
2. nine card Baseball holders
3. Padded envelopes of various sizes
4. Stamps
5. Baseball cards.
6. Harry Potter and the Half blood Prince DVD

Noticing a theme? :P

I don't really want that much this year. I don't really need that much. I know people don't have buckets of money and I figure at lot of these things are something they can afford. Plus I'd be happy as can be to receive a large three ringer binder than I would a HDTV. Truelly I would. I already have a TV that works, but not a binder.

My mom has already asked me to save links to the cards I want though as they are utterly clueless when it comes to cards. So long as they are baseball, I'd be happy though.

QUESTIONS (I has them!)

Do you guys have anything baseball/card related that you want this year?

What is the best baseball/sports related gift you have ever gotten?

For me it would be the signed base ball bat by Chipper my Mom go me last year.

I have 18 pictures, figurines and posters of Chipper.

....Not THAT obsessive.


Just send your address to :)

I had the absolute worst nightmare EVER the other night.

I went to Target and they had stopped selling baseball cards! It was horrible. All they had where NASCAR memorabilia . I asked a worker when they where getting more and they said they weren't! I don't hate NASCAR, but IT WAS JUST TO MUCH!

I also dreamed about trying to buy a blaster box of Topps 2008 series 2, but couldn't and the whole thing turned into a huge ordeal that took me all over town.

...I need to stop having dreams about cards.

McCann's Lame Contest

So I've been wanting to do a contest. However, I really don't have that much to offer. I still don't have that much to offer really. What I do have is three packs of Donruss 1991 cards and two packs of 1993 topps series 1 cards. I know, not that grand, but it is free cards.


So if you want em, simply guess how may times Chipper Jones is displayed in my room. This does not include cards. Figurines, posters and pictures are included however. Person that gets it right are comes closest, wins. Contest lasts till next Saturday.

The mailman had been busy.

I got some packages this week, which makes me happy.

Thanks to Night Owl I am close to completing my 2006 topps set. He got me all but twelve of them. Whoo! Thank you.

I also got a surprise package from Troll yesterday. It contained a Curtis Granderson Jersey card, two other Curtis cards and even some Braves. There was note saying he wanted to be the first to give me a Curtis jersey card, and he was! :) The Curtis cards are now at home in their very own album and the Braves in their... shoe box. It is a nice shoe box that is decorated pwreeety though.

And and ANNNNNNNNND! I got my set of 1990 score set from Ebay.

I also had another post on another topic, but my computer ate it.

1990 score

I hadn't even heard of this set until I was leafing through my cards and found a couple the other day. I have to say I like it, I really, really like it. I like the the colors, the pictures, and I especially like the design on the back of the card. It is different than I am use to seeing, which is perhaps why I like it so much.


I liked it so much I bought the entire set on Ebay! It was only 1.25 for the set, but 14.00 for shipping, so it seems to even out from what I've seen on E-bay. Plus the guys had great feedback. I hope I get what I asked for anyway.

I don't tend to go for full sets, but it isn't like you can stop by target and pick up a few packs when you want.

Have you guys seen these cards? Don't know how popular they are really.
