Starting To Sample My Latest Sportlots Order

A few months ago, I went on a little bit of a credit spending spree on Sportlots.  I had (and still have) a good chunk of change in my account from selling over the years and not cashing out for far too long.  I figured it was time to flesh out my collections a bit with some cheaper lower-end stuff with a sprinkling of heavy hitters.  So, what I did was I went through my Ryan Dempster need lists, did a search on Sportlots and every time I found a card I needed at a price and shipping policy I liked, I would search that seller’s store for cards of other players I collect.

All told, after going through my Dempster want lists thoroughly with that methodology in mind, I wound up with over 200 cards ready to be sent my way (obviously not all Dempsters).  That’s when I started that countdown you may remember appearing in some posts.  Well, here we are only about 90 days later and I’m ready to show off some of that huge Sportlots haul by ignoring the fact that I have a few other smaller Sportlots hauls and COMC purchases from years ago.

Don’t have the regular base card

So, this will be all Ryan all the time and it won’t even be everything.  Close, but I’m saving a few for later.  I’ll start with this 2002 Fleer Gold Back. I don’t know how common they are, but I’ll assume something like one per pack.  This is one of those older parallels that most people probably never knew existed or forgot about, so best not to rely on a trade partner and spend the .18 instead.

The only Reds card in the bunch for him

I probably didn’t need to get this. I forgot it was an Opening Day like set and assumed it was a normal parallel.  Either way, it’s another need filled.

Spot the difference

More gold stuff.  It’s tough to see, but this is a gold foil parallel.  Not a great idea in general since it’s very hard to distinguish from the silver foil, if you even know to look for it.

My first Ginter set

Overall, I picked up a good assortment of minis.  I may hate them, but I still need them. Easy choice to buy them for less than 50 cents each, usually less than 25.

This ends my 2010 Topps 206 needs

Simple parallels were popular cart additions. Here’s another one-per-pack things, I believe. Whatever it is, no one cares about them and I imagine the seller was thrilled to clear out that little bit of space.

Next stop: Abe lincoln

Here’s a big one that I held off on getting for a while, thinking that I would get it in a trade one of these days.  For quite some time, the only 2010 Topps Chrome card I needed was the regular old basic refractor.  I gave in and completed that seven card rainbow finally.  Oh, how I wish chrome rainbows were only seven cards now.

What a line up

Stepping backwards in time, this is one of my most expensive cards in the bunch.  For that 2009 OPC set, the regular black parallels were one per pack, so those aren’t too expensive.  However, this is the one per box black mini. With such a large 600-card set, that’s a lot of boxes needed to find one card. There are also supposedly black blank back parallels, but I don’t know if I’ve seen one and I may drop them from my want lists if I can figure out estimated print runs.

Gotta love blue foil

These last two are less expensive, but lower numbered.  I’ve been able to nab a Donruss Champions parallel the last couple times I’ve gone to SL.  This blue /100 did not turn out to be in the best condition, but for $1 I took a chance. Very rare to have pictures on that site, so that’s why I don’t go too expensive.  I still need 4 more cards from this set.

After this, I only need the glossy from 2011

I’ll end on a mini, because it’s my lowest numbered one of the batch.  Well, not numbered.  Lowest assumed/announced print run.  I love collecting players that most people don’t as it means I get some good deals on some rare cards.  If and when I get back to this order, you can probably guess how many Rizzo, Bryant and Baez cards I was able to find in my price range.

The main takeaway is that SL can be a good source for cheap cards if you know how to shop effectively; and I have a lot more cards that need to find their way into a blog post in the future.

Card-ography #10 – Kerry Wood

For what’s supposed to be a quick and easy type of post to write, it sure did take a half year to get back to this series.  How about we return with a bit of a bang?  A semi-rare sighting of an autograph from one of my original player collections.  I guess autographs are a bit of a rarity on here anyway. That’s what this series is supposed to help rectify a bit. Let’s revisit that introduction in italics as always:

Even after having a hand in the case-breaking world, Autographed cards still fascinate me.  Allow me to explain with this series introduction from the early days of the blog.  To see the other parts of the series, click on the “Card-ography” tag at the bottom.

Now that I’m back into collecting, one of the biggest surprises greeting me at the door was that signatures on cardboard (or on stickers placed on cardboard) are now a regular part of the hobby.  In fact, it’s basically expected at this point.  I know there are plenty of people who feel that if their box doesn’t have an auto – or even the RIGHT auto – then it’s a waste of money.  Hell, I’m still not completely jaded by relics, so I can’t understand this theory.
I know that most of the autos aren’t all that valuable, but seeing that blue, red, and sometimes black ink on a card in your hands still holds significance to me.  It still makes for some of the most enjoyable moments in collecting.
That’s why I’m starting a series that will analyze the signatures we see.  It’s common to see people lump them into “good” and “bad” categories, but I want to take it farther than that.  This player took the time to sign your card (although some of them don’t take tons of time).  I’m going to take the time to inspect it.

Love this signature series set

This card was bought at the National in 2017 and I maybe overpaid a bit.  However, at the same time, there’s still a small market for Kerry Wood autographs and so my typical tactic of picking up cards for $.99 +s/h on ebay doesn’t work as too many people place bids.

Literal:
Xmy W-backwards L

Style points:
There isn’t a ton of style on display.  What you see is what you get and what you get is rather typical cursive with very few flourishes.

Space Usage:
Kerry’s full-ish name auto allows him to make good use of the card from left to right.  In the few Wood autos I’ve had, I’ve never felt cheated on space and it’s never blocked anything in the main design.

Laziness:
It’d be hard to make the argument for laziness in this signature.  You can try to make the argument for those two “o’s” in the last name, but c’mon….

Intangibles:
I love the consistency. He’s not an extremely frequent signer in card products, but that autograph above is what you would see from his minor league days to now.

Overall:
As I mentioned in the caption, I love this card set. This is the most common version. Maybe this year at the show I’ll get to pick up one of the others without those pesky ebay bidders getting in the way.  Or at least one other autograph out of the few he has out in the wild.

Stickers From Near and Far

It took me a few months to get my act together but I’m finally posting the last/most recent packages I’ve received this year so far.  I needed to buckle down and actually scan and log them, and that took me longer to do than it would a normal person.  Either way, for now after this, all the trade package stuff I’ll be showing will be from trades that have had at least one post.

Today’s feature, the last of the new stuff, are stickers sent from two generous bloggers.  I hope neither minds that I combined their mailings.

A randomly semi-fanned look at some much needed stickers

First up, Marc from Remember the Astrodome sent me some surprise stickers to help me with my ongoing quest to finish those pesky MLB sticker albums.  The 2019 stickers will be hitting shelves in a little bit, and I’m excited to see just how much of my advice Topps took.

Looks like a card, peels like a sticker

Dan from Korean Cardboard got in touch with me through twitter.  He was looking for someone that collected Gwynn so that he could send out a stack of stickers.  I was happy to assist the former fellow Chicagoan and waited for the cards to travel across whichever ocean the postal services decided was most cost effective.  He collects Korean cards as well as some PSA Mattingly stuff and Mark Buehrle stuff. Since he’s down to just the rare stuff on Buehrle, odds were low that I could find something to repay him with, but I did have a Topps mini gold surprisingly.

1987

This was a nice pile of stickers that took me back to the good old days where my mom would let me buy sticker packs at the grocery store. I don’t think I started with this 1987 album.

Also from ’87

Here’s some of that lovely foil that I want Topps to bring back. I don’t mind multiple stickers for the same player, if it’s done right.

88 opc

1988 looks a lot more familiar.  I definitely never had this one, however, because this is from the O-Pee-Chee version of the album.

Oh, Canada…

I love the player backs. If I wanted to get really crazy, I could go after all variations of both, all combinations of players from front and back.  I do not want to get really crazy.

Over 3000 hits served

I don’t know why this looks like a McDonald’s employee of the month head shot, but it does.  I didn’t collect as much of the Panini album, but definitely still had some.

Cataloging is fun

Remember this?  I’m showing it again because it’s the Topps version.  Can you tell the difference?  There’s a slight difference in ink saturation, but that could be total coincidence.

Bendy bat!

The 1990 stickers were much more subdued than their cardboard counterparts.

90’s are alive

Can you imagine foil in the style of 1990?  Probably don’t need to.  I’m sure it’s been chromified a few times by now.

Twice the size of a Cracker Jack prize

I tried to resize the images to scale, but maybe should have made this one smaller. I’m not familiar with the ’91 Panini album at all, but this is a sliver of a thing with a wide shot of who I assume is actually Tony Gwynn.

Double the fun

We’ll end by skipping a few years to 1996 where the Panini album went a bit bigger than the standards we had been seeing.  I don’t know this album either because I was all basketball at this point.  Not wild about the green border.

Some weird photo manipulation here

I’d be curious to see how the layout was designed that gave Tony two stickers this year.  Needs more foil.

Thank you very much Marc and Dan for the great stickers and for your kindness. Hope we get a chance to exchange some stuff again soon.

It’s Fine

I know that my previous post was a celebratory one, but I haven’t been doing great mentally the past couple days.  I’ve touched on this before and at some point I’ll do a deeper dive on things as well, but there are times when I simply don’t want to continue with the blog.  It’s always temporary and directly related to my mood of the day rather than any actual burnout.

Right now, the only reason I’m typing this at all is in an attempt to not feel like I’m a completely worthless waste of space, because the doing nothing this weekend becomes a spiral. That’s also how I know I don’t really want to quit the blog.  My mood and mental state is perpetuated by doing nothing, and so if I don’t have the blog, I have less to do.  Again, something I’ll go into more in the future. Right now I just want to force myself to do something and try to reiterate internally that things are actually fine.

Never Peel

I’m certainly not the Finest I’ve ever been. And no, peeling won’t change that. Never peel.

Got an aura around him

Superficial changes really don’t do anything to help.  I’ve learned that after losing weight as a result of my gall bladder issues.

Bronze at best

I’m the skinniest I’ve been in several years, but it’s not enough to prevent this from happening. Always had body image issues. The toll it takes on me as I get older is worse.

Don’t care it’s covering his face. Not peeling

So, yeah. I’m really not feeling it lately. When that happens, I like to overanalyze every aspect of my life and cut myself out of the world.

I’m not a warrior right now

It’s something I always break out of, but the question is how long it will take this time.  Tough to say. This could be my last post for a while, depending on how motivated I am and whatnot.

This wasn’t peeled. It’s embossed and they come like this

Plus we have our vacation coming up.  If nothing else does it, that certainly should. Getting into a different environment and unplugging a bit will be great.

Back to coating

Anyway, I’m sorry about the mini rant, and apologize in advance for the larger rant that I have to get out there sometime in the future.  Although, maybe it’s more interesting than commenting on how Finest has evolved over the years like this was originally slated to be.

No coating put on these from here on out.

Sometimes life throws curveballs at you and it takes most of the day to work up enough mental stamina to get a couple hundred words written on a post that already has pictures uploaded to it from last week. If you stare at the computer long enough, you think it will write itself from your brain, but it never actually happens.

Refractor version. Shiny doesn’t always make me happy.

So, today was rough. Yesterday was rough. Tomorrow will probably be no better.  Still, no matter what I will eventually be fine.  Probably not great. But fine.

Anniversary Cards

This week saw my 8th wedding anniversary come and go. My wife and I celebrated the actual day with little fanfare. We went out to eat at this 24-hour Mexican restaurant that we went to a lot when we first started dating, which was a complete departure from our usual tactic of finding a highly-rated fancy dining experience to try.

We’re saving that dinner money so we can take a trip in a week or so now over Memorial Day weekend to California and then later in the year going to Europe.  Plus, it was nice to reminisce and revisit a place we went to 10-15 years ago but feel too fat to eat at now.  Best huevos rancheros I’ve ever had at that place.

The most color on an SP Authentic card in years

We’ve never been too big on giving each other gifts for the anniversary. We’re also getting to the point where we don’t really want gifts for other things either as neither of us wants to accumulate a whole lot more stuff.

Ultimate cards were pretty nice

There was a time when we would basically just give each other money in a sense.  With that cash, I would order cards on COMC for myself.  I don’t want to bother her with trying to pick out specific things for me.

I appreciate the arrow so I know who the pitcher is

Well, it turns out that I’ve shown off every card I’ve bought for an anniversary binge by now except for the first four cards on today’s post.  That’s pretty crazy and speaks to how we’ve gotten away from giving gifts.

Oddly blurry photo on a high end card

We do still give each other cards, but those are the traditional greeting cards. This year mine to her was a gold glitter parallel.  That’s something I would typically avoid because I hate glitter, but the content fit us a bit too well to pass up.

Extra, Extra! Check out that calf muscle!

So, even though it’s our 8th wedding anniversary, our relationship started way back in 2003. If I were to try to tell the whole story, it would fill a large newspaper and have all kinds of weird details and ancillary characters like this box score.

No big surprise he’s an leader in some Braves stats

I figured I’d keep this an all-Maddux post for whatever reason and I don’t have a lot of marriage year cards (2011) for him. We’d have to be 90 years old to reach 60 years of marriage.  Something tells me I won’t be blogging anymore at that time.

Even this is more clear than the Triple Threads

Maybe my collection would be as revered as original tobacco cards are today.  The answer to that is probably “no” as well.

Same picture as the blurry Triple Threads used. This is 2 years earlier.

Neither of us are too big on diamonds but both of our rings incorporate them in some way.  I think we’ll keep those for a while.

Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 4

You all know the deal by now.  I try to figure out a way to introduce the same blogger and trade package after doing so a few times before. I post some links and then get into showing the cards.

So, allow me to welcome back cards from Jim, who was originally known for his blog GCRL (hence the title) and creator of several side blogs. He is now writing for cards as i see them.  As you know already, I completed a nice big trade with him late last year and you can catch the first part of the trade here, if you’d like. Second part here. Third part here.

I’ll only have to go through this routine for Jim’s trade one more time after this and there will be a rough theme to that one, I think. Today is more random stuff that I couldn’t group together in a satisfying way.  Adding them to my collection is still satisfying at least.

Odds of seeing a UD Cubs Lester card are low

The last good Upper Deck baseball set.  I don’t miss them nearly as much as other people might. I’m also one of those weirdos that doesn’t mind unlicensed cards all that much.

Yes it did snow in May in Chicago this year

I’m a stupid sucker for simple parallels sometimes. I haven’t bought any of these holiday mega boxes with the snowflake cards, but I have been stockpiling them through sportlots and also occasional trades like this. The sparkly metallic ones are my bigger needs these days.

Lost in thought

Previewing the circles of the 2019 Topps design, I see.  I like the circle foil effect.

I hope that’s a catch

I hear Big League is starting to pop up.  Another master set to try to collect! I don’t know what kind of parallels are wedged into it yet this year, but I’m a long ways away from getting all the golds and blues from 2018.  I do quite enjoy this card celebrating the rare diving catch from Schwarber.

Chasing the Power Zone

I’ve been fortunate in my Stadium Club trades.  These red foil cards aren’t super tough, but they aren’t super easy either. I wish it scanned better, because it is a great color for foil.

Firethrower

Following red with more red. Fire parallels are tougher to distinguish, but I think I have a good handle on them now.  This is the “Flame” version, which may be one of the more common parallels, but that doesn’t mean they’re everywhere like the snowflake things.

Zapped

More Fire. Or Electricity? I was also lucky enough to be the recipient of this purple Fowler numbered out of 99!

There are so many Cardinals collectors out there, and I’m not even one of them, so to get this and all those Cubs goodies, was so nice to see and experience.  This Fowler may be the lowest numbered card of the bunch, but it’s not the last.  We’ll be revisiting Jim’s cards again shortly to finish off this great, generous, gigantic trade! Thanks again!

There’s No Team In Sets

One of my favorite early day inserts where those player specific sets that Fleer/Leaf put out.  I looked forward to seeing which player would be chosen for that special 10-card tribute. So many worthy names and so many ended up getting passed over because only one per series could get that honor.

These days, Topps has brought that theme back, but extended things to 30 cards, made them retail exclusives and last year paralleled the hell out of them.  Of course Kris Bryant had to be one of the ones chosen for that.  I’ll have plenty of chances to rant about those.  Today is about those older days, back in the early 1990s.  Opening a pack of already awesome Ultra cards and seeing that full green marble border was such a cool feeling.  Years later as I started this blog and my Gwynn collection, I quickly obtained the full non-autographed set through trades. I showed half of them off at that time, and I’m finally ready to finish it off here.

#5 of 10

The back of the card is all about his hitting in 1984, and so of course the picture on the front is running.  But hey, that looks like Wrigley!  But hey, 1984 and Padres are not a good mix for Cubs.

#7

The back talks about Tony’s 20/15 vision and lightning quick bat speed.  His visual acuity is certainly something that could be an interesting “advanced” stat for scouts. His bunting prowess here isn’t showing that bat speed, though.

#8

I’ve seen a couple of the card backs refer to Gwynn as “Big T.” That’s a nickname that didn’t exactly take off.  Nice effort anyway.  This talks about how he was batting .237 as late as June of 1988, but still managed to bounce back and win the batting crown.

#9

This card was all about his slumping year of hitting .309, spurred mostly by an injury to his hand.  Still managed a gold glove as well.

#10

At the first National I went to, there was someone selling all 10 of the Autographed versions for about $600.  That was more than I was willing to pay at the time (and maybe still right now).  One day I’ll start considering picking them up.

Canada White Sox

Tony wasn’t the only player I collect to get a non-team, team set.  Leaf put out several Frank Thomas sets over the years, but this was the first, I think. These backs are not very descriptive.

Probably safe

They’re just lame blurbs using that verb as the loose backbone.  Frank Thomas is intense for the following reasons…

Love that blurry hair and pink striped outfit

It all sounds like a grade school book report.  Or a Community Gum card summary.

He’s concentrating

It’s one step above giving the dictionary definition for each word, if I’m being honest, but there are different pictures and a nice city picture on the back.

So, now I have all 10 of each of these, but still need the autos for Gwynn and the Jumbos for Frank.  Maybe I’ll see some of those at this year’s National and I can do a follow-up.  But only if I have enough Concentration and take the blog Seriously.

What Bowman Is Good For

Well, I think it’s safe to say that I missed the boat on Bowman-mania this year.  And last year. And the year before. And….

No, I didn’t buy a single pack, and I’m certainly not going to spend extra money on packs that are priced above normal MSRP.  I’ve never been the prospecting type and it’s really hard for me to understand that mentality.  In all honesty, I can only think of one player where it’s worked out in the long run – Mike Trout.  “Long run” is subjective in that case, of course, and there’s still plenty of time for the sky to fall. He’s the closest I’ve seen to a sure thing in a long time.

Anyway, while thousands of people are trying to chase and flip and buy up the next big thing so they can brag about how much money they made and how their prospecting skills are amazing, I will bide my time and fill my collection with all the cheap runoffs.

Chrome isn’t always king

He may not have been Miguel or Adrian, but John Lackey was still a major league pitcher with a long career.  That wasn’t enough to stop his card from being worth next to nothing years later.

Shiny Wood

High-end Bowman. There’s no way this can go wrong.  Well, I guess having this be a “rookie” card instead of a prospect means it’s doomed to failure.  Rookies are old, hot garbage.

Pay extra for the beard

Here you go.  The very first Bowman card of a hot prospect turned eventual Cy Young winner with no-hitters on his resume.  If Vlad Jr. is worth X, then Jake must be worth multiple Xs by now.  Less than 50 cents?  Oh….

Maybe there’s a beard there

Maybe having a second Bowman chrome card in the same year reduced that value.  One is from the normal Bowman thing and one is from Draft Picks and Prospects. It doesn’t matter which is which. They both are cheap.

Too many Bowmans

A couple years later and here’s the dreaded Rookie Card again.  Pathetic waste of everyone’s time. The only thing worse is a non-rookie major leaguer. Who wants established players when you can have maybe players?

No idea what this was worth back then, but now it’s about a quarter.

I mean, why even make cards that aren’t going to turn a profit for me personally?

Refractors don’t mean much at all either if the player isn’t the top .1%

The recent years have of course become even more saturated with all the various parallels and whatnot. Of course, they’re not really printing to demand of the main cards. They are printing to the demand of those chasing the massive hits, meaning there is a lot of overproduction of the more basic stuff.

Changing teams doesn’t help either

Now, some people would say that it’s obvious that these aren’t worth anything, because they aren’t graded.  If you’re going to prospect, you need to have protected prospects. I have yet to delve into the world of slabbed cards. I would be more inclined if I dealt with vintage, but there are only a few modern cards that I would look to buy slabbed just for authenticity sake.  A Rizzo Bowman RC is not one of those. His time has passed.

Not even El Mago is immune

MVP Runner-Up Javier Baez must be worth a little something?  Well, $3 shipped on ebay counts, I guess. Or $1 on Sportlots.  Or you can wait a few years and it will drop in price even farther when it turns out he’s not a perennial MVP candidate like Mike Trout.

You may have noticed I didn’t show any Kris Bryant cards in this post and that’s true.  Some people are slower to drop down than others, but give it time. It almost always works that way.

My takeaway? Take the money now before they hit the majors, or shortly after the call-up. Otherwise, I’ll be taking them away years later as part of my goal to collect all of the 2028 Cubs World Series championship team.

Next Stop: A Trade From Last July

Alright, I got a nice chunk of trade bait up and depending on how well that’s received, I’m hoping to inject some different names in my recurring trade package posts.  Very shortly, I plan to be more proactive in searching people’s want lists and coming to you as well.  I do it on occasion with my regular trade partners and I wouldn’t mind finding more of those.

One of my regulars is Kerry, also known as Madding, also known as Cards on Cards.  He certainly checks my lists often enough and likes to fill my mailbox with big stacks of stuff.  So much so that at my current pace of 9 scans per post, I’m just now getting through a trade sent in 2017.  After today, the next stuff from him will be something I got in July last year.  Only a year or so behind!  Maybe I need to temporarily expand my self-imposed scan limit because that July trade would be about 5 posts on its own.  We will see in the future. For now, let’s visit the past. 2017 to be exact.

Love me some Hoops

Kerry will regularly send me cards of players I’ve enjoyed watching in the past.  I’ve really been out of the basketball loop. I can’t remember the last time I watched a game and the random highlight clips I see on twitter really don’t inspire my viewership.  Still, I have to say the basketball cards that Panini puts out are usually dang good, and it makes me wonder why they don’t try to use some of these designs in the baseball side.  Obviously Optic is about the same, but the others really aren’t too shabby.

Maybe I just enjoy the action shots in basketball cards more

Here’s a few more parallels.  Baseball didn’t get these golds, but got every other color combination under the sun.  Maybe the cards will eventually convince me to come back to watching so I can be more intent on collecting the cards.  Maybe.

Still upset there isn’t a card with my birthday on it

I think this was sent to me as a subtle dig. Sure it’s a Maddux card, but it celebrates a win against the Cubs. Very sneaky.

Makes me want to play some Atari 2600

I loved the Big cards as a kid. I didn’t like the mini sets, but the slightly oversize were fun.  Looking back, I must have been partially blind.

Double Gwynn

One of the last legitimate lenticular cards ever made. Give me that true motion with multiple images again, please.

I ain’t peeling nothing!

Possibly one of the last cards made only out of metal, but I am probably forgetting something very obvious.  I’m okay with not bringing these back, however.

I wish my beard could look that good

The package, as we’ve seen in past episodes, was not all older stuff.  I also had a smattering of the newness. Or what was the newness at the time.

At times, my beard looks better than this

A couple Archives that show us what we aren’t exactly missing or looking for.

Also a ROY version out there somewhere

It’s tough to tell, but this would be the holo version.  Bryant was not far removed from an MVP season when this was sent to me, and I certainly appreciate the kindness that you people show sometimes.

And we’ll see more of that kindness in the next installment of the Cards on Cards trade catch-up bonanza.  Thanks again, Kerry!

Trade Bait – 2018 Donruss Optic

I’m back with another round of trade bait. Here’s the last one of this batch. This is the first week’s worth since announcing my Charity Trade policy. In short, I’m not giving away cards, but I am donating money to charity for every card that I receive in trade. If you want to indirectly help the charity of my choosing, take a look below and hopefully we can work something out.

What can you send my way?  Take a look at this page right HERE.  I’m willing to trade in your favor if it means getting stuff out of my house faster.  Also, if you’re not sure if you have anything from my player specific lists, you probably do, but I’m also accepting any cards of just about all current Cubs players as an alternative (please no Russells), but odds are you’ll have plenty to work with!
