Tribecards from Outer Space: Where did Saturday go?

Saturday was packed with family-related activities. So, by the time I got home, I was too pooped to post. So, I'm doing Saturday's post on Sunday. Sunday's post will appear later today. This is nothing compared to the twig of '93...

I am accessing the manager list most recently posted (08/04). I think that should cover everyone's cards to this point. Oh yeah, draft will be later tonight, too! Wahoo!!

2013 Topps Archives. 8 cards per pack. I didn't realize I still had any of these!

Homer Bailey - Reds - Jafronius (Wahoo!!)
Joe Nathan - Rangers - Von Spalding (Wahoo!!)
Reggie Jackson - Angels - Dayf (Wahoo!!)
Tony Gwynn, Wade Boggs, Cal Ripken Jr, Ryne Sandberg 4xSticker - Backstop Cards, ScottCrawfordOnCards, Workman, Pedersej (Wahoo!! to all!)*
Jay Bruce - Reds - Dan Houck (Wahoo!!)
Alcides Escobar - Royals - Josh Denhartog (Wahoo!!)
Aroldis Chapman - Reds - Fan of Reds (Wahoo!!)
Matt Holliday - Cardinals - E_Rose (Wahoo!!)

Sweetness!! We not only hit for the cycle, we hit it including a 4x Sticker! That is awesome. Congrats to everyone. See? This was worth the wait.

*Unless there is a huge outcry, I will CAREFULLY cut the 4x sticker apart and each manager will get their respective player. Only the affected managers' comments will play a part in my decision. Other comments will be read and enjoyed.


  1. I'll defer to the others, but I'd rather have a tiny Sandberg than none at all! I say cut 'em! Thanks.

  2. I've already got that Gwynn/3 other players card, so I say dice dice, baby.

  3. I say you should drink a fifth of scotch, put on a blindfold, and THEN try and cut those stickers.

  4. Is this like a King Solomon puzzle or something...

    King Tribecards: "I shall separate the card into four pieces and divide it among you all" (The TRUE collector will give up his share so the card may remain mint! That collector shall receive the card.)

    Everyone: "Chop that sucka up! I want mah mini sticker!"

    King Tribecards: "Welp."

  5. Keep it in tact! I will give up my share so the card may remain mint!

  6. By order of King Tribecards (Hahah, nice Dayf!): I will keep the 4x in tact until the end of the season. If Workman is drawn as the chosen recipient, the stickers will remain in tact and shall become his. Should the fates go another route, the sticker shall be divided among the managers such that each may prosper in the good fortune. Unless ScottCrawford chimes in such that we have a tie in what to do. In that case, I shall flip the card old-school style. Heads-up, card stays in tact. Heads-down, chop 'em up!
