This blog is about sports cards. I tend to only purchase cheap items so don't come hear expecting to see big money cards. My teams collections are Chicago White Sox and Michigan Wolverines. I also have a bunch of player collections.

Game time post

 All my birthday posts are done now, I think that's the first time I've had 5 birthday posts in 4 days. It did give me some time to get the next round of cards ready, although I went to the LCS and picked up a few more yesterday so I logged and scanned those this morning.

Before I get to today's post, I have a favor to ask. As I've mentioned before, Sluggo and I have a goal of having a card shop by the end of next year and we want to make a sign out of the Letter Patch cards. Obviously, we don't want any high dollar cards for it so I'm reaching out to you all. Below are the letters we still need.

S L U G G O S     S P O R T S     C A R D S

Red crossed out, we already have. I will mark the letters green if we've reached a deal and am awaiting the card.

Let me know what you have, and we will work out a trade or I can Paypal you if you prefer. Like I said, we're not looking for anything expensive. Sports don't matter (NFL, NBA, MLB). We set up at shows so we have plenty of cards to trade with, let me know what you have and what your looking for and we'll get something in the works.

Since Michigan fights for a chance at the championship tonight, I figured I'd throw out a Michigan card rather than random like usual.

The first card I came across with a Michigan uniform on it was this Chris Evans that I got from Dennis at Too Many Verlanders. He sent me 2 boxes of cards and when all was said and done, gave me 197 cards to my PC & team collections. This is only the first of the goods he sent.

This is my 9th card of Chris. All are Michigan cards as well.

Almost game time, I'm outta here. Hope everyone has a happy and safe New Years Eve and it continues on into 2022.

As always, GO BLUE!!!

Happy (late) Birthday - Carlton Fisk

I forgot to check for birthday because I was taking a couple of days off to get more cards ready to post. Oops!

A few cards I have with Fisk and another player collection.

Where they came from -

A lot of help with this PC, 12 different bloggers, 14 people if you throw in Fred and Sluggo. Those 3 free ones I'm not sure where they come from. I have them marked as purchased but free, that usually means they were sent as extras when I purchased cards but I find it odd that someone put Fisk cards as throw aways.

I do have 3 relic cards.

Happy (late) Birthday, Carlton Fisk!
