Dime Box Junk $4.50

I WENT TO DRAGON*CON ON SATURDAY AND I'M STILL KINDA EXHAUSTED BUT HOLY SHIT WAS IT SUPER FUN

I HAVE BEEN NEGLECTING THE BLOG WHILE TRYING TO RECOVER SO DOING A QUICKIE DIME BOX POST TO GET BACK IN GEAR

2018 TOPPS ARCHIVES AL KALINE TOPPS ROOKIE HISTORY


I *THINK* THIS IS FROM ARCHIVES BUT TO BE PERFECTLY HONEST I'M NOT REALLY SURE. I'VE BEEN COMPLETELY OUT OF THE LOOP SINCE MID-2017 AND WHEN I'M DIGGING THRU DIME BOCES I JUST PICK OUT THE COOL SHIT Y'KNOW? AND AL KALINE ROOKIE REPRINT OR OTHERWISE IS HELLA COOL SHIT. AND UNLIKE THE REST OF ARCHIVES THE FONTS ACTUALLY LOOK SOMEWHAT CORRECT


1992 O-PEE-CHEE JOE TORRE


LOOK AT THAT ADORABLE FACE, YOU JUST WANT TO PINCH THOSE CHEEKS. I KNOW THE CARD SAYS CARDINALS BUT JOE TORRE IS A BRAVE GODDAMNIT. HE CAME UP WITH THE BRAVES, HE MANAGED THE BEST YEARS OF THE '80S FOR THE BRAVES, GOT FIRED BY THAT IDIOT TURNER WHO OWNED THE BRAVES. I GOTTA OVERLOOK TRIFLES LIKE THE WRONG TEAM ON THE CARD FOR LIFETIME BRAVE JOE TORRE. NORMALLY I WOULDN'T MESS WITH 1992 CARDS IN THE DIME BOXEN BUT O-PEE-CHEE CARDS ARE HARD AS HELL TO FIND AROUND HERE FOR SOME REASON. I'D LIKE TO BUILD THESE SETS AT SOME POINT BUT WE GOT PEOPLE PUTTING COMMONS IN 50 CENT AND EVEN DOLLAR BOXES FOR SOME REASON SO I GOTTA GET EM AS I CAN


2017 INCEPTION MAX SCHERZER


ANOTHER FUTURE HALL OF FAMER BASE CARD FROM A HIGH-END PRODUCT IN THE $%^@& DIME BOX. OK, THE CARD IS UGLY AS SIN AND YOU CAN'T SEE BOTH EYES AND IT MAKES MAX LOOK LIKE HE'S GOT A DUMPY ASS BUT STILL. DIME BOX SCHERZER. NATIONALS REALLY NEEDED A SWEEP THIS WEEKEND AND WE ALREADY MESSED THAT UP FOR THEM. STILL GOTTA BEAT THIS GUY THOUGH. BETTER JUST KEEP WINNING I GUESS


2013 TOPPS BILLY HAMILTON CHECKLIST GOLD PARALLEL #1198/2014


I LOVE TOPPS GOLD PARALLELS AND AM SAD THAT THE NEW FULL BLEED ONES LOOK AWFUL BUT HERE'S ONE FROM THE GOOD OL' DAYS. ABSOLUTELY DID NOT EXPECT TO SEE BILLY HAMILTON IN A BRAVES UNIFORM GETTING BIG HITS AND PROBABLY ENDING UP ON THE PLAYOFF ROSTER IN 2019 BUT THIS YEAR IS SUPER WEIRD. ADEINY HETCHAVARRIA? FRANCISCO CERVELLI? WHO NEEDS WAIVER TRADES

2016 TOPPS CHROME KETEL MARTE RC REFRACTOR


SO IT IS WELL KNOWN THAT I LOATHE TOPPS CHROME AND THAT I ALSO AM NOT A FAN OF THE 2016 DESIGN. HOWEVER WHEN DIGGING THROUGH DIME BOXES I SOMETIMES BECOME DAZZLED BY SHINY THINGS LIKE REFRACTORS AND SNATCH THEM UP EVEN THOUGH I HAVE NO IDEA WHO THE PLAYER IS. IT'S A ROOKIE CARD, WHY NOT? NOW I KNOW THAT THE GUY IS AN ALL-STAR FOR ARIZONA WHO HAS HIT 30 BOMBS AND IS FLIRTING WITH A 1.000 OPS. WHICH DOESN'T REALLY MATTER BECAUSE THIS CARD ISN'T AUTOGRAPHED SO NO ONE CARES. I WISH I REALIZED THIS GUY WAS GOOD A WEEK EARLIER IN MY FANTASY LEAGUE AND PICKED HIM UP OFF WAIVERS. NOW IT'S THE LAST GAME OF THE REGULAR SEASON AND I'M GETTING SLOBBERKNOCKED BY THE GUY IN 11TH PLACE. RIP MY PLAYOFF HOPES
