Trades Make The World Go Round

As I have been absent from writing lately, I have been negotiating several trades. Most of which have been very beneficial to my collection. So enough with all the blabbing, let's get to the trades.

First package comes courtesy of Coot Veal and The Vealtones, who sent me this mighty fine Charlie Tilson auto my way.



 


Charlie was drafted in the 2nd round in the 2011 Draft and has been playing in A+ Palm Beach with a .309 average,  5 home runs, and 39 RBI's. He sounds like we might see him in a Cardinal uniform late next year with those kinds of numbers.



Next up while I was listing to some great Vealtones I decided to pick up some Nachos to eat. This triplet of Cardinals come courtesy of Nachos Grande.

Drafted in the 4th, 9th, and 14th round respectively, these Cardinals have had themselves some success in the minors. Alex has split the year between A+ Palm Beach, and AA Springfield with a .285 average which isn't half bad. Rowan on the other hand is killing it in A Short State College with a .378 average, 14 home runs, and 38 runs batted in. And to end on a sour note, Anthony hasn't played baseball since 2012 so I don't see him in a Cardinals uniform any time soon.



And while I was listening to my Vealtones and eating my Nachos, I decided to check out some Dime Boxes to find some great deals. These great cards came courtesy of Nick over at Dime Boxes.




That is a sweet Yadi rookie. No other way to put it. 

I have no clue who Jose Cruz is, but I love me some Cardinals vintage. 

And the 2014 Opening Day Blue Parallels have come a far way from where the were in 2011. 


Well thanks for stopping by everybody. Thank you once again to all who traded with me I hope everybody has a great day. Thanks for reading!

Life Is Like A Box Of Baseball Cards, You Never Know What You Are Going To Get.

                  Sometimes I wish the back of a box of baseball cards had a "flavor guide" like a box of Russell Stover's has now. You pick up a pack and the guide tells you exactly what will be inside. Yet other times I just love that mystery of opening baseball cards and never knowing what you are about to open up.

                  This time was one of those times where I love the mystery.

                  The other day to celebrate our nation's independence, my friend and I went out and bought some boxes of cards. Although it was a product from a few years ago, 2008 Upper Deck Timeline, quenched our pack ripping thirst just fine with a guaranteed relic per box as shown on the blaster here.

 

              Luckily for us though we only had to pay $10 per box. And as my Spanish teacher would always say, "Que ganga. What a bargain!" And as you'll later find out we got an absolute steal for these boxes.

               Future Cy Young Award Winner              
                       And that was about as exciting as it got with the base cards. Now onto my guaranteed "hit".

                  Awful photo I know, but when you don't have a scanner, you'll take what you can get. Anyways, I bet you're are asking how is this a steal? Let me show you why this box was considered a steal.

How suiting for the Fourth of July
                  The man with the audacity to drop the F-Bomb on national television. And that ladies and gentlemen is what I call a steal.

                  I am very glad that Russell Stover's doesn't make baseball cards because I would know exactly what I am going to get and there is definitely no fun in that  Thanks for reading everybody and I hope you all had an amazing Fourth of July. I know I did!

P.S. If you are reading this, Angels In Order, I already have some cards set aside to send to you

RIP Tony Gwynn

One of the most respected hitters in baseball lost his fight to cancer today. Very sad to hear about this.


Yet we have time to dwell on the negatives, the U.S. Men's Soccer Team have a huge must win game vs Ghana in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. GO USA!!!!!!!!!!!
