This Week in Cardboarding

Welcome to This Week in Cardboarding. This week will just be my last discounted blaster of Stadium. With the craziness of the turkey weekend (shopping, taking fall decor down and putting xmas decor up), I am surprised I even got this posted. YEAH! for me, the streak of consecutive weeks continues. Here is what I got:

Pack 1

All doubles but still lovin that Pujols photo
Anyone know what is up with white line on the bottom of the Jackie card?

Pack 2

more doubles

Pack 3

more doubles
Pack 4

Kershaw set help

Pack 5

Ryan set help - great card and very nice photo
Jeter and Howard set help :)

Pack 6

all set help :)

Pack 7

Pedroia, Hunter and Ruggiano set help :)

Pack 8

my second BJ , now I have a set and PC card, YEAH!!
Granderson set help

Well a slow start but the blaster ended on a positive note. I got Youk and Pedroia which makes me happy. Still need an Evan Longoria from this set, so I may still pick some more Stadium blasters up, if I can find anymore. So I am holding off on my set list. Thanks again for checking out This Week in Cardboarding.

Mail Day Wicked Style!

I have been pulling a few cards over the past few weeks for the Wicked one who runs My Past Time....... I Love It!!. Then I pulled a Marlin auto and he mentioned he liked, followed by the fact he shipped out some much needed set help along with a numbered Longoria. Today I got his package, here are some of the highlights:

Longoria, Ticket to Stardom numbered 28/99

21 Heritage

24 Shiny

Great cards, Thank you so much, Wicked

Matthew Pollock offered me a DiceK Xfactor for some some set help with his chrome. So I sent a bunch of doubles his way for the help with my player collecting.

Thank You

John in Texas asked if I was interested in some cards of players I collect and a few chrome I needed. Boy was I!! Two days of emails to come to an agreement and even more amazing, two days to receive his package - WOW!! That was lightening fast. Here is what he sent:

First up - BJ Upton and Carl Crawford
an 03 Upton - a minor league card in my eyes but very nice to have
a great shot of BJ swinging with the 07 Fleer
Thank You!

the CCs
i like the font used on the Bazooka CC
a numbered UD with the red shiny - super nice
a Fleer mini
Thank you, thank you very much :)

Next up -10 Ichiro cards
the first card, an 01 - sweeet :)
another Bazooka
my favs are the Fleer Ultra and Flair

six chrome towards my set :)
Some really nice rookies with Romero and Fowler
Thanks :)

The sweetness

Evan Longoria Chrome Blue - WOW!! its amazing
(even if the scan isn't)
Carl Crawford Shiny Jersey card
Thank You! Thank You!! Thank You!!!

This Week in Cardboarding

Welcome to This Week in Cardboarding. This week will just be a blaster of Stadium, because silly me, forgot to hit the card isle while running errands. I wanted to add a little extra with each blaster. So, oopsy daisy. Here is what I got:

Pack 1

Come on Topps I need Jacoby and Dustin not a third card of Jed and Justin

Pack 2

Sweet!!!! an Auto
surrounded by doubles

Pack 3

all doubles

Pack 4

Aviles set help

Pack 5

Johnson set help

Pack 6

Gordon Set help

Pack 7

Rollins set help

Pack 8

Soriano set help

Nothing to exciting, mainly because it was a massive blaster of doubles and a few triples. Much like my third blaster back in April or whenever I got them. Only this time I have pulled two proof cards and an auto for half the cost. Last time I only pulled a Mark Ellis Auto and paid full price. I am still happy with my Stadium experience this fall. The Auto did enlighten me to the fact that these are on the card. I guess I didn't really inspect my Longoria as well as I should have.

Apparently I am closing in on my disk space, who knew. So, I may have to clean up some older posts in the next few weeks. Thanks again for checking out This Week in Cardboarding.

Mail Day :)

I Got Mail from Nr Mt over the weekend. Nico littered my email with comments on a wide array of posts back in mid-October. Stating he was new to Bloggerland and asking for a trade. I sent an email back with some helpful thoughts and asked to receive something first before completing the trade. Here is what he sent:

An Upton (shiny :) and Ichiro for my player collections
a Pena Xfactor - Very Nice
5 cards to help with my 09 Chrome Set

Next Up 15 Rays Cards, Here are the favs:

Ruggiano Game Used Jersey
and 11 Red Sox cards

Thanks a lot Nico, I really appreciate the cards. I'll being sending your package out in a day or so. Feel free to welcome Nico and check out his blog Nr Mt.

Trade with Wax Pack Relapse

My Hanson Auto got me exactly what I was hoping for - a Evan Longoria Auto. I worked out a trade with Wax Pack Relapse where I sent him the Hanson Auto and four junk hits (as he would call them) and this is what I got in return:

I am very happy, I have wanted the Bowman Sterling card for a while now but was never able to pull the trigger on ebay. Along with some other needed cards for my player collection.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You
