I stumbled across three stamps...

 Don't expect a ton of these, but I have to do something other than just show off my new cards, right?

So as the title says, I have three stamps I found in a pile of stuff I was going through.  So I decided to use them on a quick giveaway.  The first three commenters to claim cards will be rewarded by me using one of my stamps on them.  Just pick up to 3 of the cards below and I will ship them out to you.  If I don't have your address (or you think I might not have it) then shoot it to my email.  The email can be found in my profile on the sidebar.

Available cards:

The Scherzer isn't as rainbow-y as it looks in the scan, but still shiny.  The Schwarber is a refractor.

That ain't Spud Webb!

 My son recently threw a few bucks in my PayPal account, which I never use anymore.  It was a really small amount, so I decided to throw those 'free dollars' away on some random Ebay stuff.  Being only a couple of inches from being a dwarf myself (that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but I have always been short), I decided to grab cards of some short NBAers!

Here is what I brought home...

Muggsy RC!!  I think this is a card I would gladly take as many copies of as I could get.  Such a cool player.  And the other card is at least short (being a sticker).  But it isn't what I purchased!  I bought and paid for the Spud Webb from the same sticker set (1986/87 Canasta if you are interested).  And yet Dr. J showed up.  I guess I won't complain.  But if you have any cool Spuds send them my way!

Owl delivery

 I've been thinking that we need a pre-defined widget to drop into our blogs that makes the excuses why we haven't posted in so long.  Something like this:

I mean seriously, I have taken unannounced long breaks from blogging numerous times, and every time I come back, I whine about how life has been hard, or work has taken so much of my time or whatever.  Not that those things aren't real, but nobody comes to my blog wanting to hear my sob story, right?

Anyway, I am back and hope to get back to normal posting times.  I have some content lined up, unfortunately, a lot of it is just "look at what I got" posts.  I will be trying to mix in some "Flash Freebies" as well.  And I definitely want to get some more PWE drafts going, but probably not until September.


On to the post!  As you have probably seen on numerous other blogs, Night Owl has recently blasted out twenty 250 card packages to some of his lucky readers.  This is my report!  In the interest of getting this post out there, I only have three pics, but there were so many fun and interesting cards in the box that didn't make it in here.  

I chose these 9 cards as some of my favorites in the package:

Yay!  Stars, oddballs, cool photos, early Prizm and of course, The Chicken!

There were also a ton of young-ish players in there, lots of rookies.

And the cards I have shown were exactly the kinds of cards I would have expected from the great Owl.  Fun and variety.  What I did not expect was this great card straight off my wants!
Woohoo!!  Thanks a ton Greg!!

Anyway, I don't feel like this post has done Night Owls delivery justice, but hey, at least I posted again!
