Raw Dog!


(Chipper gave him the nickname Raw dog because of his tendency not to wear batting gloves. )

For the second time he is up with the bases loaded, he hits a grand slam!

I love this guy, I really, really do.

I don't anything will ever top his walk off home run against the Reds though, especially when he thought the ball was caught and started to head back to the dugout.

A great view from the stands,

Yea, I already blogged about it once, but it is to awesome to leave alone.

I want cards of him. Caaaaaards. I will trade you. Someone's gotta have some cards of him.

and holy Heck, someone sure does update fast!

Finally earning some money for some cards (what else would I buy?) . Not much, which is why I settled on a blaster of upper Deck 2009 which was %40 percent off. I bought this last week, but I'm a lazy and wanted to use the scanner to post pictures as pictures make everything better.

One jersey card inside you say!

There was no jersey card in my blaster. I feel cheated. I feel betrayed.

Below the large red 40 % sticker, was another sticker. An orange rectangular sticker! It was on every single Upper Deck Series 2 2009 product, which consited for three blasters and some double packs.


ahem... seriously? Way to make money off the gullible.

The only card he is in, is a USA baseball which is only one of 20 jersey cards or one of 18 non jersey cards. A 1/20 chance isn't that bad if those are the only jersey cards that you can pull..... I mean 1/20 blasters though, not packs. ( I haven't pulled anything besides the USA in the past.) Dunno the odds are on the others as I suck at math. Upper deck doesn't list the odds of getting such and such card like Topps does.

They had Allen and Ginter products as well, but no sticker on those and I do believe they have a Strasburg (I think?)

I do like the base cards however which is why I bought two more blasters today. Plus I am a bit gullible and do hope to pull a Strasburg. Shhhhhhhhh, don't tell anyone though

I need to update more

... Seriously.

It has been two weeks since I have last made a post and I don't like that. I also don't like posting for the sake of posting (which I guess this sort of is). It is one reason I don't comment on a lot of blogs. There are a lot out there that I read daily and I really enjoy doing so. I just don't like commenting if I can't somehow contribute .

On the other hand, I lot of bloggers update daily and even more than that and there posts are always a pleasure to read. I feel bad for being so... lazy. There are some reasons for that though. I am of course.. lazy as well. I readily admit that.

My camera is still broke. I have cards I'd like to upload, but can't. It makes me sad.

..and I haven't bought any cards in weeks. Well, one pack last Friday... but that has been it. I've been saving most of my money for a hobby box, or jumbo of topps series 2. I miss buying cards though. I miss standing in the card isle and oogling all the cards. I'm like a.. well... junkie.

... I just thought I was being cleaver with that last bit. Until I remembered I blog I frequent quite a bit (daily).... "Cardboard Junkie" Durrrr.

Anyhow, I plan on trying to post more. I never thought I would reach 56 followers. It is awesome and I thank you all. I want to give you something to read however and something that isn't crap.

I will be going away fora few days or up to a week though to visit my grandmother, but when I return, I hope to have an improved blog. Or one that doesn't go weeks without posts.
