Strange Things Are Happening To Me

Quick note: I don't know, exactly, what was causing my site to redirect to some weird ad site, but I've disabled all ads, counters, etc, and that seems to have fixed it.

So, now I will attempt to answer comments!

Thanks, --David

A tasty treat from Nachos Grande

Waaaay back in September, I got an envelope from Chris over at Nachos Grande. Somehow, I managed to forget to post what was inside! Well, we're taking care of that RIGHT NOW!

Inside the envelope was a cut-up pocket page, so I got a 3-pocket section. In each section, there were two cards, er items!

He sent me two "Crash the Game" cards (top), a 1991 Sandy Alomar Jr All-Star card from UD (lower left), a 1997 Score Hobby Reserve Kevin Mitchell, and two 1995 Fleer/Panini baseball Stickers (bottom right)!

These are very cool! THANK YOU so much, Chris! There are certainly a tasty Tribecards treat!

Cards, Packs and More from Hot Corner Cards!

Hello, everyone!
 Sorry I haven't written in a while, but as usually happens after the season ends, I took a break from posting to get myself ready for sorting and packing. That will be happening over the next couple weeks. I had planned to get it all done over Thanksgiving, but it didn't, so basically, we're looking at a Christmas delivery schedule.

In the meantime, I spent some time this past week in San Diego at a conference. While there, I walked over to Petco Park for the Winter Wonderland, which was awesome! I will post pics of that and the stories to go with them next time.

But, tonight, I am posting because Hot Corner Cards sent a BIG box of wax for next season's Tribecards Pack-A-Day Giveaway. When I say a BIG box, I mean it!

What is in this thing!? How about no fewer than 70 packs of 1991 Upper Deck!? How about at least three Qubi's!? How about several other wax packs (at least 9 of them) from various years/companies/etc!? The UD packs are opened, so I assume each one has whatever cards HCC didn't want out of them. Then again, maybe they were opened and who knows why. I do know that they seem to have a different amount of cards in the packs - some are thicker than others. I am not holding that against anyone! I will take gift wax packs any day of the week. This is going to be so much fun!

Top all that off with a plastic box of loose cards, most of which are Indians - one is a 1957 Al Smith no less! There is also a bubblewrap envelope with at least 100 Indians cards in there as well! And, I cannot forget to mention several loose cards just floating around the box. WOW! This is an amazing start to next year's giveaway program! (Er, excuse the extraneous sundries strewn about the desktop)

Okay, in the interest of full disclosure, I will sort through the Indians to see which cards I need for my personal collection. Any cards I already have will be used in next year's giveaway.

THANK YOU so much to HOT CORNER CARDS for this incredible gift!
