Heritage and Archives

As a result of surviving the first two weeks of hell, I bought a blaster of Archives and a small box thing of 35 cards of Heritage Hi Numbers. 

What I got? Well, here it is.. 

Here are the Hi Number cards.. No Jays, so I'm not interested in keeping them.. 

The Archives are here below. 
I generally like the Archives releases, I also know I won't be in a position to collect the set, so again, I'm just looking for the Jays, Expos, and Canadians. 

It's odd seeing Ty Cobb in a 1975 style. Somehow, the Deion Sanders looks nice.
I like that Stargell as well. 

The 1993 set is interesting.. It was not a set I collected in the wild at the time. Partially because 1993 the cards weren't avaiable in Terrace Bay or Thunder Bay. 
Now... Fan Favorites.. Laz Diaz??? 

I did get two Jays this time though. Sanchez, who's now an Astro. 
Tellez, who is possibly the first baseman of the future for Toronto. 

Well, if you like any of the cards here, let me know.. We might be able to work something out.

Check Out These Cards

Well, I bought some cards through COMC a while back and got them in this week.. 

I've been awol the last couple weeks for the most part because for the most part, I've been working and sleeping.. Work had me incredibly stressed out, but that should lessen Monday. I'm not going to go into too much detail about it here.. If you follow me on Twitter and are genuinely curious, you can contact me there.. 


Cards.. I bought 'em.. 
Cards... I'll show 'em.. 

I got a couple new Pete Ward cards I didn't have before. I also got some 1979 cards I needed. For the most part what I needed were Canadian players and the Jays checklist. 

John Hiller, as I mentioned before, went to school with my friend's dad in Toronto. Reggie Cleveland is from Saskatchewan. Dave McKay is an original Blue Jay. 

Some 1992 Topps Traded here as well.. Matt Stairs for the Canadians binder, Jack Morris for the Jays, and Vince Horsman for the Canadians binder. 

Kirk McCaskill also makes it for the Canadians binder. 
I now have completed the Diamond Kings for 1992 Donruss.. Really the only things I need are the insanely hard to find/expensive Update cards, and the Rookies set. 
I really liked the Diamond Kings cards from this timeframe. 

Well, I know I complain a lot about inserts and parallels and all that.. But... There are some inserts I love. Fields of Yore fall into that category. I love stadium cards. 
So here are Griffith Stadium, Wrigley Field, Astrodome, Cleveland Municipal Stadium, Sportsman's Park, Yankee Stadium, and Metropolitan Stadium. 

I still need Ebbetts Field, Tiger Stadium, and Shea Stadium. 

I have some other cards to show over the weekend. 

Have a good one!

Another TCDB Trade

Well, I finished the Week From Hell at work. 
Very stressful.. Today I slept since I couldn't sleep last night. 
Anyway, I want to share a trade that came in..

These were courtesy of Hilochef on TCDB. 

Joey Votto goes into the Canadians Binder. We have some 1990 Score to get me closer to being done that set. 

Some more here. 
The Mookie Wilson goes into the Jays binder.. The Steve Wilson goes into the Canadians binder. 

1991 Studio. I almost want to say "High School Yearbook" edition. 

Some newer Jays and Canadians here with Paxton and Votto. 
I do miss seeing Pillar in Centre Field making those plays in Blue Jays colours, but I do see highlights from San Fran.. 

we have some stadium cards. I know I should have scanned them horizontally.. But I couldn't be bothered..

Finally some Archives. 

Thank you for the Trade, Hilochef!

TCDB Trades

I have a couple trades to cover. 

Today's been a very stressful day, it being my first day back to work for the school year and driving a new route. I got home around 5 and I still feel like throwing up due to stress... 

So this may be a little short, or just not a whole lot written.. 

First trade I want to cover is from bizauer

We have a couple Expos here, with a 1984 Active Leaders card featuring Al Oliver in Expos gear, and two Former Expos in Rusty Staub and Tony Perez. 
Paul Quantrill is from a town not too far from my current home. He's from Port Hope, Ontario. 

Next, some Topps Big. They were rather interesting cards. 
This was during the time where Tim wanted to be called Rock. 

Next trade I want to show is from itsjustoldcardboard

Some Upper Deck Masterpieces and the Stroman Gary Vee card. Still really have no clue who the guy is.. Not really inclined to find out. *shrug*

The third trade is from althib

Some Expos here with McClure and Nettles. 
Those are 89 Traded.
90 Score to help with that set. 

Some 1991 cards here to help with sets. I love the old Studio sets. I wasn't a fan when they became just another set. I liked the oddball information they provided. Like 1993, the Astros infielders listed current Vancouver Canadians manager Casey Candaele as their pet peeve. 

Vince Horsman is Canadian. We have some Ricky Romero. After he retired he ended up doing some broadcasting. He did the Vancouver Canadians games shown on Sportsnet up here. 
The Pinnacles help towards those sets. As do the 2015s. 

The final trade I want to show is from MasterOfPuppets. 

Larry Walker I believe will go into my Canadians binder. As will Nigel Wilson and Rheal Cormier. Leiter and Grissom will go into the respective binders. 

More Big League to work on the set. I'm really hoping to be able to complete this set. 

Thank you for the trades, everyone!
