Projects

2 Posts in a day, what the hell is going on here. I've been meaning to do this post and figured since I was sick and not moving around too much today, I would work on it.

I was inspired by Capewoods Collections when he posts his random cards from his collection, I noticed he has a number next to them.

Notice the card #5628

I saw that and thought, 'he must have every card he has numbered on a spreadsheet," followed by the thought, "I want to do that" so I have been working on that. I figured I might as well start with the cards on My Personal Collections, so I have started off with the very first post and have been working my way through. I've also been adding them to the spreadsheet as I add them to that blog from when I started the spreadsheet until today.

So this has been my process, every time I post cards to this blog, I post a copy to My Personal Collections blog, underneath the pictures on that blog, I add this information.
Then I go to the spreadsheet and log on all this information.

You can click on it to enlarge it enough to read (I think). 

First, I usually have to Google the number on the back of the card because I've already scanned it and put away by the time I post it. It's usually not to hard to find that info. I add the number, and then I link it back to My Personal Collections page for that card so you can click for an image. When I remember, I also like to go back to my have lists and put this link on those as well. Then I fill in the player, card, team, whether it's a hit, which of my collections that card belongs in, how I acquired it and where or from whom I got it. If I got the card in a trade, I link the name of their blog to their blog. I use the trade under the acquired loosely since I don't do much trading anymore, but I have a couple of awesome guys who still send me cards, if I ever get back into it, I'll send them some cards. This column gets tricky when I do cards that I've already posted to My Personal Collections because I have to go back through this blog and figure out who gave it to me (if I can) otherwise it gets listed as unknown.

Capewood has been at that for awhile.


But wait, there's more. After all that is done, I go back to this blog and make another copy of the card and post it to My Baseball Card Obsession. Then I select the next card and start all over.

So basically, posting a post to this blog has become more than just posting here but if I ever finish everything, it will look great and it's a way for me to know if I have oddball/inserts that I don't have listed in my want lists because I have a ton of those that if I run across them at a show, I have no way of telling if I have them or not. Plus, it gives me something to do while I'm sitting in front of the TV most evenings. I have been working on this for awhile, the last thing I posted, earlier today, was #851. Long way from the finish, but it's something.

Newest Additions - White Sox Collection

I have randomed them and let's see what we got (unless you peeked at the title.) Sorry if a few are blurry, I didn't realize it when I edited them and I wasn't going to go back, find the cards and take new photos.

White Sox Collection

2 by 3 Heroes


I don't know the story behind this, whether it was a TTM or someone got it in person, what I do know is it looks real enough to me. That, and there isn't any money in faking a Roy Smalley autograph. Either way, it's another autograph to the White Sox Collection.

I meant to post this with the 1980's White Sox post but I apparently missed it. I planned on scanning today but apparently my body had other ideas. We were supposed to run out this morning and pick up a few things but I've been in and out of the bathroom since 2:30 this morning so maybe tomorrow.

Just like it says, photos of baseball cards. The "Blog" currently sits at over 4900 cards featured and I add more weekly.


This "Blog" has photos of the cards from my PC's. I have all the cards that were featured on this blog over here and will be working on adding all of my cards.

Newest Additions - Vintage Collections (1967-1968)

I have randomed them and let's see what we got (unless you peeked at the title.) Sorry if a few are blurry, I didn't realize it when I edited them and I wasn't going to go back, find the cards and take new photos.

Vintage Collection (1967-1968)













This is the last post of this round, lots more vintage love from the dime box. Actually, I have one more post because when I was uploading these from the cards folder, I realized I forgot a card. Oops.

Either way, I guess I'll be spending some time this weekend scanning my new additions.

White Sox Collection

















The last of my White Sox Collections posts from the card show. Grabbed all of these from dime boxes as well. I really liked the green Peavy and all of the red Turkey Red's.

Newest Additions - Vintage collection (1969)

I have randomed them and let's see what we got (unless you peeked at the title.) Sorry if a few are blurry, I didn't realize it when I edited them and I wasn't going to go back, find the cards and take new photos.

Vintage Collection (1969)
















I know if you've followed the card show posts during this round, you know I hit a bunch of dime boxes. Well, these are 1969 Topps, surely I didn't get them from a dime box. Wrong! I grabbed all these in dime boxes as well. I didn't have many from that set so I just grabbed them all without checking and ended up with no dupes.
