Some Very Awesome Tradebait

Hello fellow bloggers! If you're a fan of Bowman Chrome, please listen up! 

Not too long ago, I ordered a case of 2013 Bowman Chrome baseball. To make an extremely long story extremely short, I still have a handful of factory sealed, unopened hobby boxes. 

Why do I mention this? TRADE BAIT! I've busted plenty of boxes lately, and I'd really like to dump these boxes off to people who want them. In return, I'd like to get some nice cards, of course. I'm looking mostly for auto's and low numbered cards. If you didn't know, I'm a Pirates and Steelers fan... However, I collect all different types of baseball, basketball, and football cards. If you think you can match the value of one of these hobby boxes, please don't hesitate to contact me. Drop a comment or shoot me an email at

Thanks for reading!

It's My Lucky Day!

A couple weeks back, the guys over at Sports Card Collectors held a contest prior to the NLCS. The rules were simple: Choose the winner of the series and the number of games it will take them to do so. It was the day after the Cardinals beat my Buccos in game 5 of the NLDS, and I had to give it to the Redbirds. They looked like a great baseball team, and I liked them to go on and defeat the Dodgers. I entered the contest and took the Cards in 6. What a guess that turned out to be! 

I was one of six bloggers who took the Cards to win in six, and I was lucky enough to be chosen as the winner from the randomizer!

Here's a picture of all the goodies:

Pretty cool stuff! I always buy BCW products, but it's nice to get some for free, of course. Aside of the booklet cases, these are all supplies that I use frequently, so it was a very practical win for me. 

If you don't follow the Sports Card Collectors collectors, you're really missing out. They hold some really fun contests, and there's always awesome prizes. I received my package in less than a week of winning too. If you're interested in purchasing the highest quality card protection, head straight to BCW's website.

As always, thanks for reading!

A fun trade with Hot Corner

About three weeks ago, I completed a very enjoyable trade with Pat over at Hot Corner Cards. Pat's a huge Tigers fan, so I sent him a couple nice Verlander cards, and some commons for a set he's working on.

I didn't ask for anything specific in return. I just told him I'm a Pirates fan, and I'll take anything ! He sent over some really nice cards, and hit just about every recognizable Pirate from the last 20 years. Names such as: Zack Duke, Oliver Perez, Jack Wilson, Freddy Sanchez, Brian Giles, Jason Bay, Bobby Bonilla, Nate McClouth, Nyjer Morgan, Jose Guillen, and Jason Kendall. 

I'd say all that's missing from a list like that is Lastings Milledge and Barry Bonds. Aside from all the nostalgia, Pat also hooked me up with an awesome Starling Marte Parallel from Topps Opening Day:

Pat, thanks so much for the awesome cards. Sorry it took me so long to get around to this!
