Because of this, my mindset over the past few days is cleaning off my disaster of a card table/desk. Kind of a spring cleaning, except it's not spring. The desk has gotten so bad that I worked on cleaning it last night rather than writing a post.
One thing that I secretly hoped for when Update/Highlights was released last month was the potential influx of gold parallels for the insanity set. My luck so far has been very disappointing. So much so that I have all these for trade, mainly because I'm hitting numbers that are higher than 1500.
|Need more info on any of these? Comment/email...|
See any you need? Let me know...
How about minis? Have an eight spot of those if you're collecting that set...
I also have quite a few sparkly gold and Wal-Mart blue if you're collecting them....better they go to someone who will enjoy them....let me know if you're looking for anyone in particular.
Not unlike many other bloggers, I enjoy the cartoons on the back of older card releases. I managed to pick up about 3 dozen of the 76-77 OPCs I needed for my set, but a couple of Leafs cards caught my eye because of the similarity of the cartoons.
Both Mike Pelyk and Bob Neely seem to have been injured quite a bit during their careers, as evidenced by the generous amounts of bandages adorning their cartoon bodies.
Mind you, those weren't the only 76-77's I was able to buy. I found one table that had a nice assortment of these cards, and I grabbed a few of the star cards I needed...some notable HOFers here.
The cards are in good shape, and the dealer was good enough to cut 20% off the price. My purchases weren't limited to vintage...I did manage to find some more modern cards to fit my collection;
|probably overpaid for this, now that I think about it|
along with a few others to fit other people's collections (if they so choose to have them...)
All these, plus about 400-500 Blue Jays that I've been too lazy to catalog, piles of doubles from sets that I'm currently building, and assorted piles of top loaders, penny sleeves and single cards that I've picked up here and there.
It's all driving me crazy. I hope you will pardon me while I clean up the disaster area....
Thanks for reading, Robert
