Opening Day

Four Hours til the first game of the season, my now local team Rangers against the now AL Astros, so wrong  mrSelig, why the Brewers didn't go back to the AL is beyond me.  Bye bye tradition - Anywho - Looking forward to catching a few innings after bath time with little miss awesome (the daughter)

Til then here is my first pack of Opening Day, its a big pack, not sure the technical name, but it was 2.99 for 24cards instead of three pack that only equaled 21 cards.

 Marte hope him the best this season
he didnt really bring it last year
Reddick became a beast last season
hope he can keep mashing and bring his avg up
Morales and Span in new unis
i like morales hope he kills it this year
in the newly designed Safeco

Shaking the rust off

I know its been awhile but life just hasn't been allowing me much time or money for collecting.  A really quick recap, I am now in Texas and my daughter is two point five, wifey started a new job and i am working my way up a small business but doing art stuff.  Yep that about sums it up.  I have really missed collecting and even sharing the one or two things i pick up sporadically.   Its the beginning of a new season and I am inspired to give blogging another go.  As always I hope you enjoy my little play by play on collecting and baseball.

Kicking 2013 off with just a couple of packs from the local Target or Walmart (i cant remember which :).

Pack 1
 Lincecum my fist 2013 card, could be worst, Congrats Giants!
how unlucky was Cliff last season
can't believe Young is in Philli now, hope he ROCKS this year
got a Ray i'm happy, hello mrPrice
Love the 72 mini

Pack 2 
LONGO mini, me likey, 2013 you have hooked me
Nathan blue, i guess that means i got these from Wally

the other/last four cards from both packs
the top row is from pack one
...not much here
A red Danks, does that mean i got a pack at each store
one from wally and one from target
WOW i seem like an airhead
i can live with that

apparently there was a third pack, like i said shaking the rust off

 Profar rookie, back in the minors, top prospect by the experts
