I got nothin'

I've come to grips with the fact that I'm not going to write a post of any quality this week and I'm just going to have to accept it and try again next week. I also ripped my first objectively awful Gypsy Queen blaster today that netted no less than 20 base doubles and six - count 'em - six doubles of bloody inserts. It is very demoralizing when you have doubles of a card of a random model dressed up in hippie clothes that is supposed to represent the queen of the Gypsies. The only thing in the box that could even conceivably be regarded as a 'hit' is a framed card of Stephen Strasburg numbered to 999. This ain't July of 2010. I shall now post a small pile of Qypsy Gueens with pictures of Braves on them in a feeble attempt to lift my flagging spirits.

Strasburg... why'd it have to be Strasburg???


Yay! I have four out of five Braves short prints! Boo! The last one is a rookie!


Jair is pitching otherworldly right now. Since he's on the fragility chart between Heyward and Chipper, right now I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop.


Murphy! Just jacked one out of Wrigley! Check out the Cubbie ball girl in the background. Holy Cow!


With Freddie here, the only Brave insert I lack is the Home Run Heroes card of Andruw Jones. Someone care to explain how Hank Aaron is not in that set? Or the Great Ones set? Oh, they got an autographed card of him though.... Thanks Topps.

Is that Marla Collins behind Murphy?

Here's an audio clip of Harry Caray mentioning Marla.

I've decided to become a Braves fan for Teheran's starts this year, and let me tell you it's tough work...you guys really suck at running bases

I think I have the Home Run Hero card. I'll double check when I can.

Can't be worse than the two hobby packs I openend yesterday. All base cards and plain minis except one SP, one insert, and one presumed-fictional-irrelevant Gypsy chick.

... I'm sticking with the retail rack packs for sure.

I'll relieve you of the burden of the Strasburgular if it pains you so much. Get in touch!

P.S. My word verification is "metsol". There's gotta be a dirty joke in there somewhere.

Mark A. that is a brilliant catch on the Marla Collins clip. It made my day listening to that. I might find that Murphy card just on the notion that you added the clip to it. Thanks!
