New Want Lists

I have checked out some want lists that folks have made on google docs and I was impressed, so I made up a few new lists of my own. I have not been happy with the way I have my want lists on the blog so hopefully this is better. If anyone has any advice for how I can make things look better, by all means let me know! Now lets see if these work:

New want lists:

1993 Leaf Series II and 1993 Score Select

1993 Topps Series II

And now the huge master list of my 2008 Allen & Ginter minis

I just checked it looked like it worked. Let me know if I did the Docs the best way. I published them as web page as I couldn't tell how else to share them.

Not baseball related, but, wow! Once Al Franken gets seated this will give Dems the 60 votes needed in the Senate to maybe, just maybe get some more stuff accomplished. I am stunned that Arlen actually had the guts to do this, but he had seen the polls and there was no way he would be able to win the Republican primary next year, so he did what was smart and switched. I expect plenty of articles out soon saying that this is a win for the Republicans and that somehow this is bad for President Obama.

Not a great Halladay

I guess every Halladay won't be great. The good guys made it close losing 5-4 to the Rangers tonight. Doc went 8 innings giving up 8 hits with 9 K's and no walks. His downfall was giving up 2 homers. Oh well you can't win em all. Today should be a fun filled high scoring game as David Purcey will be facing Matt Harrison. The Jays are still in first, which is good.

I am finishing up packages for Ed and Dinged Corners, they should hit the mail tomorrow. Hopefully.

Late Halladay

I am a bit late in posting this, but thursday was another Halladay and it was my birthday.....so that was a damn nice present. Like I say if everyday was a Halladay, it would be great. Just to recap 7 IP 8 H 1 R 8 K 0 BB and a Jays 9-2 win over the Twins. The win made Roy the Majors first 3 game winner. All around just a great day.
Mail Day

I just received a great package from Ed from dairy country or as we like to call it: the land of Thorzul. Ed knocked off a whole bunch of my 2009 Topps series 1 that I needed, I am now close enough to taste it! I will put what I need at the end of the post, so if you want to help me out there is the list. Ed also include a few Blue Jays cards, a couple of which are really nice and well he had already posted about them, so he has the images---which I am now going to try and use---let's see if this works. Well that didn't work....I guess I am not a bandwidth thief! Instead I just emailed Ed for the images. Let's try this:

Damn those are nice cards! The first images on my blog! I have hit a milestone. Oh yea the cards, the Vernon is oh so shiny!!! The Rios card is my first Mayo. I have to just say no.....I cannot afford to like another set.....no, 2009 Allen and Ginter is coming soon, must save my money. Thanks Ed! I am working on a nice pile of Brewers as I am writing this.

I just got some more ebay winnings in the mail. How come the best packed items I get are from fellow bloggers doing simple little trades, while the people who sold me items do such a crappy job?

It is very annoying.

Legendary voice of the Phillies and NFL Films Harry Kalas passed away today at the age of 73. He was found passed out in the broadcast booth before the game today. I guess that would have to be about as good a way to go as any. Maybe after a victory instead of before the game.....be able to catch one last game. One of the legends, Harry you will be missed.

Roy Halladay has a dang nice game against the Indians today as the Jays go to 5-1 on the year. BJ Ryan got lit up in the ninth and had to be bailed out by Jason Frasor. It's looking like BJ is the weak link in this really good pitching staff. The offense is leading the league in scoring(who woulda thunk it!). I think Cito will be a good influence on the offense allowing them to outperform the predictions for them all season long. It's David Purcey tomorrow and let's see if 6-1 is in the cards.

2008 Allen Ginter base

Is complete!!!

I got an ebay package today with the last 4 shortprints that I needed! I also have many thanks to everyone who traded me cards to complete this set. I should have the World Leader set done very soon and I need just 2 of the N43 box toppers so I am going for that as well now. I need David Wright and Matt Holliday to finish off that subset. I am working off my mini list and have a few doubles so I can trade them away as well. Thanks again to everyone for your help.

I have completed a few trades over the last couple of weeks and I have won the guess the 24 body count contest over at The Easy Life twice now. Thanks Steve for the great cards--the 2 packs of 2009 Topps got me 9 closer to completing Series 1, and I got an Alex Rios Turkey Red, which was a sweet bonus.
I really wish I could put pictures up of some of the cards I have received, someday I will get that technology!
