So over the past 2 weeks ive gotten things from TTMs to lots of cards. Ill start with the ttms

image

Jamie moyer, this one was actually from may but I never showed it. Along with this I got another 2011 Topps signed, a 2004 topps chrome and a 1987 Topps

image

Jeff Karstens. I sent this one off in spring training. I sent this card along with another 2011 Topps and a 2013 Topps. All 3 were signed.

image

Jerry Mumphrey. Along with this one I sent him 2 1981 Topps and a 1981 Topps Traded. I offered him a card and he kept it, one of the 1981 Topps.

image

Eric Dickerson. One of my favorites so far. A great addition for my 1988 Topps autograph set im working on. I wanted him to sign 2 of the 3 I sent but he kept a copy of this card along with the team card. Oh well, im still happy.

Then was this…

image

Guess what this is. Ready?….

image

Yeah. A lot of 800 1985 Topps football cards. With this I have most of my set finished and im down to the last 90 or so cards. I have a wantlist and a trade list ready but I need to post them.

And lastly….

image

My first Game Used Card. And a topps tribute one at that. I got it from listia for less than 2000 credits. I thought it would have gone for a whole lot more but I guess not.

Pretty good isnt it? Thats it for now…

Listia Stuff part 3

Leave a comment

Hello everyone! Let me start off by saying that I apologize for not having posted these past few days. As I said before I havent had much to write about. I havent had any TTM returns although I have sent just one in the past week.

Today I got my SP that I said I made a deal for

image

There it is! #135 Dale Murphy! Cost me $4 but it definetly was worth the price because I need to finish my set. This was bought from blowout card forum member Yankees _Pride. That brings me to one less card for my 2011 Topps set. I think I need like 65 more to go and all but US330 are going to be hard to get.

On another note here is one listia thing ive gotten

image

2008 Topps #FS1 Kazuo Uzuki all for the price of 26 credits. Ive also sold a few things, mostly mycoke rewards codes but also a Mark Trumbo orange refractor and 2 cognac SPs.

The unusual thing about that shipment was that it came in this box

image

Thats right I said box. All for 1 card.

Not pictured is a 1957 Topps card of whitey lockman I got for 530 credits.

I really like listia because you dont have to deal with fees and can easily turn one card into many!

I plan on getting other things besides cards there but for now its all cards I need for my sets or just something that interests me.

Well thats it for now. Ill see when I post again…..

Packages from Various Blowout Cards Forum Members

1 Comment

These past few weeks have been filled with deliveries from members of the blowout cards forum. With a few pictures here ill describe them all to you

image

Okay. This first one comes from member bboi30. He agreed to send me a few cards after I bought some from him a while back free of charge. I wasnt dissapointed with my last deal with him it was just that he wanted to make up for not sending me 1989 Topps Wax packs. I also got another case with some stadium club stuff. Not a fan of that but its still good to get free cards.

image

This one here is from member mschub. Our original deal was some SPs I bought from 2011 topps baseball for $10. There is some more details ill get to later but this was to make up for again what I will discuss later. This case includes a million card giveaway card from 2010 but below it is some 2011 Update cards for my set. He also helped me finish my series 2 and opening day sets. But really my series 2 set has a long way to go when you count the SPs. Still nice though. Its good to have 1 fourth of my set done.

image

This one is from member Coug46n2

image

Next up is…..this. The other case from bboi30. The first was just 1993 topps football and this was stadium club basketball and hockey.

image

image

and lastly….this from mschub. Our original deal. I posted 3 or 4 pictures here but I only see 2. The SPs here were I believe 2 Tom Seaver cards a Bob Gibson Willie Mccovey and Robin Roberts. The story behind this deal is that we had agreed to this only: The SPs. But what happened was that he sent the cards with Delivery Confirmation and a few days later the cards show up as delivered. Great right? NO!!! Heres the thing: The DC shows delivered but not to my home. I sent him a message about this. Then he agrees to send me the cards above which were the update base cards. I also forgot to mention there was the Larry Walker SP from update as well. Then almost a week after I got the Update cards I get this in the mail. Thats really messed up.

Like the good dealer I am I told mschub of this and I asked “Is there anything I can send in return for this?” Mschub replies no. Its okay. He didnt use those words exactly but thats what it meant. So he let me keep the cards. Awesome guy!!! Anyone reading this from the blowoutcards forum I reccomend you deal with this guy.  I also forgot to mention that the purchase from mschub marks my 10th Purchase from a member on there! I count trades as part of my overall trade count. After this the wantlists have been updated.

So it was a pretty good june for me and I didnt spend a single dime. The mschub thing was from last month (May). Ill be posting my diamond giveaway stuff soon. Thats it for now…….

Trade With a troll

1 Comment

I recently did a trade with the collective troll. He has a blog that goes by the same name. Anyway I was able to get quite a few cards for my 2011 topps update set

image

Thats one plastic case full of update cards. There was another case like that as well.

He knocked out at least 40 cards from my list so that was very nice. In return I sent him a bunch of cards from 2007-2009 topps and a few inserts as well.

Thanks for the trade troll! Glad you liked the cards

Trade with cardmasters

Leave a comment

The 7th trade in the history of the blog comes from blowout member cardmasters.

image

Once again the picture is upside down. At first I thought cardmasters was one of those people trying to steal a few cards from people seeing as how hes relatively new. I realized most members start off this way so I let that skepticism go.

What I sent: 2011 topps mike schmidt cognac SP. Also 3-4 filler cards for PWE protection.

What I got in return: the card above a 2007 topps chrome hector gimenez base auto. Its #357 in the set.

Comments: a parallel for an Auto. Both are pretty much worth the same thing now so it was an even trade. I only have 2 cards from 2007 topps chrome but any card I get is awesome. Thanks for the deal cardmasters I hope youre enjoying that SP!

Blowout Purchase #8

Leave a comment

I have no self control….

image

At least when it comes to cards. For $12 I got 4 SPs. Monte Irvin Roger Maris Frank Thomas and Andre Dawson
The other 2 SPs I got for free. Roy Campanella and Hank Greenberg. These were bought from forum member st0lenbase. I now have 68 Base SPs to finish my set!!  And on top of that I still need the 5 factory set exclusive cards for a total of 73 really hard to get cards. I still havent finished my trade list. Got to work on that.

Check back for another post soon!…

Blowout Purchase #7

Im Tired. This post will be short

I bought a ty cobb SP from member clarkzac for $5.

As a nice gesture he also included some base cards I need to finish the topps update portion of my 2011 topps set. That purchase was my 4th SP from 2011. I have 72 to go!!!

Thats all…see how short that was?
