An interesting waiver claim today, the Browns claimed quarterback Joe Callahan. The interesting part is that Callahan is the name of the star quarterback in the Kevin Costner movie Draft Day. (It was Bo Callahan in the movie.) Sadly, the Browns have been stranger than fiction since the movie came out.
Anyway, I added some interesting cards to my collection since my last post.
|1977 Topps Mexican #259|
Well, after sending him a message, he dropped his price on the card, and then when it showed up he had included another card that I needed with it. (I guess that is the good thing about having cards in my wantlist on the site when trading with another member.) To any other TCDB members, if you see his sales posts, take a look and send him a message! He's a great seller!
|2009 Panini Rookies & Stars Longevity #24|
That wasn't my only free card, but the next one came from a blog reader.
|2000 Fleer Tradition - Feel the Game #38|
A while back I received an email from the owner of the Collating Cards blog telling me that he had the above card to give me if I wanted it. Of course I did! He was kind enough to send it to my address in Canada and it was a nice surprise in the mail last week after a very long, tough day at work. Thanks a lot, it was greatly appreciated!
I also won an ebay auction that had one item for me, and a little bit of trade bait.
|1972-73 Fleer Team Cloth Patch Stickers|
|1960 Topps - Metallic Stickers|
From another lot purchase on eBay, I wound up with some needed cards. I'll show the memorabilia and autographed card that were actually listed in the description so I knew that I needed them. There were also some needed base cards but I'll save them for another post.
|2004 Leaf Rookies & Stars - Masks #M-31 (#/325)|
|2007 SP Rookie Threads - Rookie Threads Silver #RT-BQ|
A card that probably would not have been as welcome to the person that opened it is this one.
|2011 Topps Five Star #159 (#/65)|
|2014 Panini Crown Royale - Rookie Silhouettes #211 (#/199)|
And of course, can I really finish a post without having one of these?
|2015 Topps Inception - Rookie Patches Red #RP-VM (#/50)|
I hope to post a bit more this week before heading out to the Phoenix area on Thursday for my mom's birthday.
I mailed some envelopes out to a few people over the weekend, but am still so far behind on people that I want to send things to. I think I've seen other people post zip codes so here is where those envelopes went: 02919, 45067, 70130, 97207, 89436 and 60586. Enjoy!
