From Johnny and gcrl

Well, from the lack of posting recently, its obvious I have been busy.  The main thing was a 10 day (!!) work trip.  Longest I have ever had.  I have been trying to read some blogs and comment, but there has been no time for posting.  However, being away that long allowed some mail to pile up!

First up, I have been the happy recipient of several PWE packages from Johnny over the last few weeks, each with an excellent variety. 


4 cards of HOFers, a RC of an underappreciated young stud and more!  The Brett especially is a nice looking card.

Nice stuff.  I wouldn't have expected a vintagey Carlton in these deliveries!  And the Betts is a card I need for an upcoming project (*tease), so nice bonus there!
Lots of stuff could probably be said about these cards (like Scherzer's exertion face), but I can't think of anything but my first Lindor RC!!  Thanks a ton, Johnny!

Also, gcrl decided I needed a sweet little pick me up out of nowhere!  I always say I would love older refractors, but rarely get them.  These three were very welcome!  In fact the Billingsley was a need for my 2011 Topps Chrome Refractors set build that will never finish.

Thanks a bunch gcrl!!

And hopefully I will get back to some actual posts soon!

Just three cards

 I decided not to bore you with a ton of cards from the card show.  Here are my favorite three.  All three from 50 cent boxes.

This is an unnecessary Prizm type that I had missed.  But for 50 cents of this HOFer "Black and White Checker Prizm" came home with me!!  It's less blue in person.  My scanner really isn't great.

Speaking of scanner issues, this Verlander isn't so pink as the scan. It's a deeper red.  But it's beautiful!  I really like the effect and would be interested in others (Prizms only!) from this set. The set is 2013 Panini Select En Fuego Prizms

And now for the find of the show, and just in time, since the man just hit #700!!
Yep, that's right, a Pujols rookie year card for fiddy cents!!  And what's up with me not reading any "Congrats to Albert" posts on the blogs out there?!?!  Just kidding, write whatever you wanna write.  But I do love the Cardinals 1B/DH!  I hope to do a tribute post at some point and show off the cards I have of him.
