Birthday Cards for my 50th Birthday

I celebrated my 50th birthday this past weekend. In the space between my ears, I am much younger than 50 years old. I suppose that is part of the reason I still love collecting Indians cards.

For my birthday, in addition to many other presents, I received several packs and blasters of baseball cards. Here are some of the "highlights," including a slew of Tribers:


The two non-Indians cards here are cloth stickers. Very cool throwback!


Speaking of throwback, how about a Scratch-Off Game card? Oh, and how about a game-used material card? And then we throw in a couple refractor things for good measure:

PAD Circus Revisited, Update of sorts

Image result for tribecards pack-a-daily circus

The Pack-A-Daily Circus (PAD Circus, for short - PAD even shorter) was a fun event I ran for several years here on the blog. In a nutshell, I opened one pack of cards for every day during the regular baseball MLB season. Readers could choose teams or players, depending on the rules of the given season, and then those would be assigned to the participants.

The original premise was that each participant would get all the cards they "won" during the season. It was a LOT of fun to do! But, the sticking point came in that last bit: they were SUPPOSED to get the cards they pulled during the season. As it turns out, only the very first season or two actually netted anyone getting any cards. There is no one and nothing to blame but myself for that, and that is where we pick things up.

While cleaning out the home office today (Feb 2, 2019), I came across a BUNCH of cards from the  old PAD Circus programs. They are unsorted and are completely mixed together. A responsible handler of such things would dutifully go back through all the posts and figure out which cards belong to which participant. Alas, I am not such a person.

Instead of going back to figure all that out, I am taking the "beg forgiveness, take another route" approach. You see, my revised method of giving these cards away is this: Use the GOOGLE FORM HERE to request a team! Please only one team per person so that everyone gets a chance.

That's right - pick a team, get a BUNCH of cards! Not only will there be cards from the PAD Circus years, but I am including whatever cards I happen to have sitting around. This includes my charity A&G Hobby Case Break, any packs I've opened during the last few years, etc.

ALL FOR FREE!! Yours for the asking! Use the google form link above!


NOTE: I will attempt to go back and refund any money given to me from PAD Circus. I know some of you donated money to help with shipping etc. I apologize for dropping the ball on these.

Merry @Indians #Cardmas to Me!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year to everyone out there! This year for Christmas, I received several packs of cards from my wife and extended family. Here are the Indians cards I pulled from the various pack!

We have Alex Cole as the sole pull from a pack of 1991 Fleer. That's followed up with two cards from a pack of 1988 Donruss featuring Andy Allanson and Dave Clark. From a pack of 1991 Studio, I pulled a Mark Whiten. I had two packs of Upper Deck - one from 90 and one from 91 - and managed to pull a Triber from each pack! There's Chris James from the 1991 and Brook Jacoby from 1990.


The packs continue to deliver Indians cards with *FOUR* Tribers in a pack of 1992 Donruss: Denis Boucher, Jeff Shaw, Mike Aldrete, and Doug Jones. Rounding out the half dozen Indians cards I pulled for Christmas, we have Shane Bieber and Jose Ramirez from a pack of Topps 2018.


I received other packs of cards as well, but they netted no Tribers. As far as I am concerned, any time I can pull Indians cards from packs, it's a win in my book!

Hope you had a wonderful Cardmas and/or Christmas/Holiday as well!!

Hey all!
  Here is my Google Sheet with the list and tally for the 2018 GAC contest.

At the time of this writing, we are also awaiting scoring for the mini Glow-in-the-Dark.

TOTAL (w/ou GITD score): 114
(Those freaking Yankees cost me a fortune in points!)
