Of codes and stickers.

....Or stickers and codes

So, I found a world cup sticker book at the dollar store. It looks just like this one here.

Only problem? There be no stickers. No stickers anywhere... and I want me some stickas.

Somebody has gotta half some still laying around. I'll trade you things for them, like cards. Yea, cards.

Annnnnnnnnnd codes cards.

I have 10. 10 like chippah, but I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed more. Surely there are those that have better use for them as deadly throwing rectangles. Instead of being a Ninja send em to me. I can give you cards instead. Other cards.

I would be very rich...

If I made a device that could make your want list for you. ...and post them to your blog or website.

....Or am I the only one that finds making a want lists painstakingly boring and.. painstaking? Looking though 300 plus cards or more to find which ones are missing is the least fun for me in the whole card collecting world. That and sorting them in the right order to begin with.

I reaaaaaaaaaaaally need to sort through the topps 2011 cards I have, and the 2010Topps updates, and the 2011 Topps Heritage. (speaking of which, does anyone have the Brave manager card? I waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaant it!)

I have got to stop buying cards until I do. Of course I always tell myself that and then as soon as I hit the card isle my will power fades and a pack goes in the buggy.

Point to all this? I am a lazy horrible procrastinator who has zero will power.

On tuesday, Chpper got his 1,500 RB! This ranks him third in switch hitters, only behind his idols, Murray amdMantle. He also has 2,500 hits, which only Murray has done! ....That and at least 1, 500 RBI's

Ramdon Brave Thursday.

Been meaning to do this for a while, just been lazy ...and sick. Still sick, but I wanted to update the blog. May make this a weekly thing, I dunno.

Anyway, I have picked a random Brave card from my collection and will post a few facts about them. Today's card is a 1979 Topps card of first basman Bob Beall.

According to the card he played 128 games for the Braves. 20 of those where in a pervious season where it would took him two more years to reach the majors again.

Some more info dug uponlin also revals.....

He would go on to play 17 games for the Braves in 1979 and 32 for the Pirates in 1980. His avrage for those years was 231, which is likely why he played do few games.

He also played first base, left field and center field. He also made five errors at first but none in LF and CF.

/end tantrum

I have been excited all week to watch the first Braves Home game and what do I get.... Phillies @ Braves is blacked out on this channel. Sorry it also not viewable on any other channel. Sorry my ASS.

I can't even find it on the radio.

Guess that error contest!

I've had this card for years now and I noticed the error years ago. You are likley going to have to be a Brave fan to get it though. This is the first error card I have gotten and one of the only really.

So first person to guess the error gets two packs of 2010 topps update cards.

It is time to come clean...

This is really hard for me to say and the reaction I receive may not be good, but I am sick of staying silent. It is time to come clean to everyone.

I am a closet Met fan. I have been one since before I could remember, but I was just to ashamed to admit it. Down here it is Brave country and the Mets are something to be despised. I was always a bit scared to go against the grain and rebel, so to speak. While on the outside I was cheering for the Braves, inside I was wishing that the Mets could win. There are Met posters in my closet and I have a box full of Met cards, although the outside says Braves cards.

There, I have said it. I am a Met fan and I am no longer going to hide it. I will no longer be ashamed to cheer for my team.
