Let's hear it for 1991 Score baseball!

Who knew that a junk wax set would create so much interest? I guess maybe people are tiring of the $200-$400 per pack high end same old crappola.

or they're looking for a place to dump '91 Score.

Either way there's hope for humanity after all.

After a few emails, and some cards I found in the wrong box, here is my updated need list.

#'s 452, 457, 507, 559, 565, 577, 606, 629, 631, 636, 649, 686, 714, 719, 722, 738, 739, 841,

Quite an improvement. But, still a long way to go.

Yay team!

to celebrate, here's 1991's Miss Surfboard ... or something.

1991 Score baseball. Yes, that's what I said.

Haven't been blogging much lately. Too damn hot to do anything really. But since my hard drive died (I lost pretty much every scan I've ever done.) It took so long to fight that losing battle, only to then have our side by side refrigerator pack it in.
Have you been fridge shopping lately? "It's on sale sir! This week it's $900 off of the regular price. Only $1899.99, but you need to buy today as the sale is ending!"
And then.... my scanner stops. Oh it still eats electricity. And makes noise when I push the buttons. It just doesn't scan. Something I always thought a scanner should do.

Posts without pics are so blah.

Mind you, I can remember more than a few hundred times when I wanted to sit down and blog, only to think to myself, ugh. I really don't feel like scanning and cropping all those cards.

So I guess it's just the excuse of the week.

So if I can't scan anything interesting, then let's update those want lists. Something else that gets pushed back on the old priority list. Odd to put a list on a list.... but I do it.

Today, we have 1991 Score baseball. To most people, absolute junk. Garbage. Landfill. (oh, I meant recycled materials to be re-purposed into new, useful products)

But I actually like the set. It looks great in pages. Really. No, I haven't been drinking.

If you have any, hit me up. I'd be most grateful.

#'s 293, 452, 457, 501, 504, 507, 512, 517, 520, 523, 526, 528, 529, 551, 552, 559, 565, 568, 569, 577, 589, 598, 600, 602, 606, 609, 611, 615, 617, 620, 626, 629, 630, 631, 634, 636, 646, 647, 649, 651, 654, 655, 659, 660, 661, 662, 664, 666, 668, 670, 672, 674, 675, 676, 678, 679, 681, 682, 686, 690, 694, 697, 698, 699, 701, 702, 703, 706, 710, 711, 713, 714, 715, 717, 719, 720, 721, 722, 723, 725, 727, 729, 730, 731, 733, 735, 737, 738, 739, 742, 743, 747, 749, 750, 751, 753, 755, 757, 761, 763, 767, 769, 770, 771, 773, 774, 778, 779, 780, 781, 782, 786, 789, 793, 794, 798, 799, 801, 802, 803, 805, 806, 807, 813, 814, 817, 818, 819, 820, 822, 825, 826, 827, 833, 834, 837, 840, 841, 842, 843, 845, 846, 852, 853, 854, 855, 856, 857, 858, 860, 862, 863, 864, 866, 867, 868, 870, 872, 873, 874, 875, 876, 877, 878, 881, 886, 887, 888, 889, 890,

I think the set is 893 cards... if there's more after #893, then I need 'em too.

help needed...

Computer help that is. I'm in crisis. I hate when I arrive at something that needs to be done, but I'm too dumb to do it.
Shockingly it doesn't happen as often as you think.

I need a computer techie/nerd/geek/god to help me fix my PC. Or at least perform last rites.

I'm having hard drive issues. And while I do have a partial backup on one of those external back up thingies (technical term) it's about a month old and there is some data newer than that, that I really REALLY need.

So if you can help, or know anyone who can... please email me or leave a comment here with your email... whichever.

Thanks.

Until then, I'll be in the corner weeping softly.

Free diamonds! Kinda...

At the card show this past weekend, as soon as I walked in the door, two of the sellers called out my name and beckoned me over.

It's nice to be wanted.

Both had cards saved for me that they knew I would want. I'll show off the lone baseball card I managed to pick up over the weekend now.


I love me some Chippah!

This is one of those Hope Diamond things from Topps. Or is this the Blue Hope Diamond? Did they have other colours? Did the liquorfractors count?

Whatever. This one just happens to be numbered JerseyNumber/60

Yeah baby! 10/60. Ebay 1/1! Woot!

*cough*

Even better than acquiring this beauty was the price. Yeah. Free. All I had to do was answer a trivia question ... "What was Chipper's jersey number?"

BOOM!

I love this hobby.
